right here
I could be if you have any interest in the Brewers.
I don't really know anything about anything to have interest in specific teams, was more a Pittsburgh thing than anything else.
I think I’m just gonna roll with the Pirates on this one. I know nothing about collecting so this is just a fun experiment for me.
fair enough

Awesome thanks. The Indians have been terrible for awhile so hopefully they have some good prospects by now.
A Gabriel Arias /5 just sold for $5,000.00. That's the guy you're looking for.

@LogansDad got a good draw with the Brewers, Hedbert Perez is selling for huge money.

@Bergs has the shot at probably the biggest prospect in Austin Martin for Toronto, but it'll be a redemption.

@One Red Seat is looking for Heriberto Hernandez and Maximo Acosta with the Rangers

One thought while watching this. Maybe next time you could randomize the draft order and then allow people to draft teams. Thanks again for doing this.

Biggest prospect maybe, but the base Chrome card isn't paying any car payments! lol

Definitely an option to change format up a bit. I had a blast tonight. I love ripping cards, and we saw some nice ones tonight. I wish I could have kept up with the chat, but I was working off one monitor and focusing on not screwing up (much).

It was great. That's what I use for my face cam on stream, but I've never been able to get cards to look good on it.
Okay, cool. I was using OBS Studio to stream through Youtube, so I wonder if OBS was able to optimize it better than Windows normally does.

Thank you - this was a lot of fun. Even though I didn’t know many of the players. This is in equal parts no minor league baseball last year and that my overall ability to follow sports consists of turning on a random game and watching and seeing Red Sox tweets.

Just caught up with the stream this morning, which was awesome Sunday morning viewing. Thanks very much PE, and if anyone’s organizing another of these please count me in.

The 2021 Bowmans were a great choice,

Found a couple of additional minor hits hiding in the stack of chrome as I was sorting this morning:
Nolan Gorman, Cardinals, #'d to 125
Nick Bitsco, Rays, #'d to 499

There are only 125 (or 499) of that particular card variation (that player, card, and color combination) printed. Each card has it's individual number printed on it. If you look closely on the bottom left corner of the Rays card, you'll see 37/499.

So, #'d to 499 just means it's a limited print run of 499 and the card indicates this with a serial number.

All packaged up and will go out via USPS first class tomorrow. I put a couple of 3D printed toploader stands in each box. I changed my design, so this is some back stock I don't need any more.


@Mugsy's Jock - Sent you a PM, but I still need your address (I learned addresses don't come through pith PayPal friends and family). Shoot me a PM, and I'll get your cards sent right away.

I'm up for doing another break in June. Let me know what products you might be interested in. Topps has multiple products coming out this month, but I'm open to breaking anything.

I was also thinking we could do one of the following for format:
- 30 slots, team draft, random order for draft slots
- 15 slots (2 teams per slot), snake team draft, random order for slots (assuming we have interest for more than 15 slots, we could schedule 2 separate breaks)
