Group Break Random Draft Is Done

Hello all. I have finally gotten to do the random draft for the group break. I was waiting on one list and sent several e-mails but I didn't hear back so I will just make the picks myself for that team. In a close vote  we will go with the draft positions determined by number of hits followed by total number of cards. There was one tie between the A's and Reds that I broke with the A's having fewer inserts, etc so the A's are ahead of the Reds. I decided to go the same direction both times through the list since the vote was for the people who got less to have the better picks. There were three teams that didn't care what they got so they will just get what's left at the end.

    Here are the teams in the order they picked with their selections.

   There it is, the random draft is done. I hope everybody is happy with what they got. I think it went well as I didn't have to go to low on most peoples lists since after the hits the lists were pretty diverse. I know I am happy as I got a bunch of cards for the American flag collection.
    I will now begin the task of packing and mailing the packages. Please be patient as I have a busy work schedule and home schedule so hang in there and I will get them out as fast as possible.

   That brings an end to what feels like the longest group break in history. I appreciate all your patience and I hope it was worth the wait as all teams except one got at least 107 cards (and he got the best random hit)and most did much better then that as far as quantity. We ended up with 26 hits among 24 teams and a bunch of inserts spread around so all in all I think it went well. Thanks again to all who participated!

   Thats all I have for now. Keep rockin your cardboard dreams!


Thanks for Reading!

It may have been the longest, but I think you take the title of Best. Group break. Ever.

So are you doing another one this month? hehe just kidding.

But if you ever do decide to do another break count me in.
