YANKEES (Josh P)             ROYALS                       ROCKIES (JOE AVG)
METS (Buckstore)               CUBS                            PADRES (madding)

DODGERS (Brent)               INDIANS                       BREWERS

PIRATES                            A'S  (Brent)                       BLUE JAYS (Buckstore)

$16 FOR THREE TEAMS, YOU PICK ONE IN EACH TIER.  ($16 COVERS BOXES, SHIPPING AND HANDLING)(CANADA $18, OTHER INTERNATIONAL EMAIL FOR RATES)  THIS IS THE TIER SYSTEM I WILL USE ON EVERY ONE OF MY BREAKS. $16 IS LESS THAN THE PRICE OF A BLASTER BOX, IN THIS BREAK THERE SHOULD BE A LARGE AMOUNT OF BASE AND INSERT CARDS!

AS IN MY LAST BREAK I WILL RANDOMIZE A SPECIAL CARD(S) TO PUT INTO YOUR BREAK CARDS.  LAST MONTH WAS A 1971 TOPPS DODGERS TEAM CARD AND A 1970 TOPPS  FELIX MILLAN ALL STAR CARD.  ALSO I MAY RANDOMLY PUT A FEW EXTRAS AS ANOTHER THANK YOU FOR GETTING IN MY BREAKS.  I GOT ALL LAST MONTHS BREAK CARDS IN THEIR MAILERS AND GOING TO THE POST OFFICE IN THE MORNING (1/2/13) SO NOW I AM READY TO "OFFICALLY" START TAKING SPOTS IN THIS MONTHS BREAK.

I AM GOING TO KEEP THIS BREAK OPEN TILL WED 1/9/13. PLEASE PICK BY 1/9/13 NOON CT.  LAST MONTH I CLOSED IT A TAD EARLIER DUE TO FAMILY ISSUES, BUT I WILL TRY TO KEEP THAT DATE 1/9/13.  IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE EMAIL ME   jasonjasonp12@gmail (dot) com  I SHOULD START TO LISTING WHAT EVERYONE GOT THAT SAME NIGHT.

HOW TO PICK TEAMS + PAYMENTS
PICK ONE TEAM FROM EACH TIER BY COMMENTING ON THIS POST.  THIS WAY WE CAN SEE WHO PICKED WHAT TEAMS IN ORDER.  PAY USING PAYPAL BY SENDING $16 (or other) TO  pilarskifamily@msn (dot) com  AND PLEASE PUT YOUR ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION.

DOUBLES
UNLESS YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR DOUBLES, THEY WILL GO IN A DOUBLES PILE TO RANDOMIZE AT THE END OF THE BREAK.  THIS GIVES YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET OTHER GREAT CARDS FROM OTHER TEAMS.  TO KEEP YOUR DOUBLES PLEASE STATE IN YOUR COMMENT.

MULTI TEAM CARDS
THERE ARE GOING TO BE MULTI TEAM CARDS SUCH AS LEADER CARDS.  THOSE WILL BE SET ASIDE AND WILL BE RANDOMIZED BETWEEN THE TEAMS ON THE CARD.

USA/WORLD CARDS
THERE IS A CHANCE OF USA/WORLD CARDS.  IF THE PLAYER IS A JR OR COLLEGE USA PLAYER IT WILL GO TO THE TEAM THAT DRAFTED HIM.  SUCH AS HUSTON STREET USA CARD WILL GO TO THE A'S BECAUSE THEY DRAFTED HIM.  A MLB IN A WORLD/USA JERSEY WILL GO TO THE TEAM IT PLAYED FOR THAT YEAR.


MULITI TEAM AUTO/GU HIT
THIS SHOULD BE VERY RARE, BUT IF THIS HAPPENS IT WILL BE RANDOMIZED BETWEEN THE TEAMS ON THE CARD.  WHAT TEAM DOESN'T GET THE CARD I WILL COMP A GM USED OR AUTO FROM MY COLLECTION TO SUBSTITUTE THE HIT AS A GIFT.

LIST
I LIKED THE IDEA OF LISTING EACH CARD EACH GROUP MEMBER GOT AFTER THE BREAK.  EACH GROUP MEMBER WILL GET A CARD BY CARD BREAK DOWN ON WHAT THEY GOT, PLAYERS NAMES, AND INSERTS.  I WANT YOU ALL TO GET YOUR CARDS AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE SO INSTEAD OF POSTING A VIDEO A DAY, AND TAKING SO MUCH TIME MESSING WITH THE VIDEO PART, I'M JUST GOING TO LIST AND SEND WITHIN THE WEEK.  LAST MONTHS BREAK HAPPENED DURING CHRISTMAS/NEW YEARS SO I KNEW I COULDN'T GET IT OUT UNTIL 1/2/13. 

UNLIKE LAST MONTH WHERE EVERY BOX HAD A HIT, THIS MONTH I CONCENTRATED MORE ON GETTING QUANTITY OF GOOD CARDS.  IF YOU ARE A NEWER COLLECTOR YOU MAY NOT HAVE A LOT OF THESE CARDS FROM THESE YEARS 2000-2003.  I WAS IN THE ARMY IN THESE YEARS GEARING UP FROM IRAQ SO I MISSED OUT ON MANY OF THESE BOXES, THUS I WANTED TO DO A BREAK ON THESE.  THIS MONTHS RANDOM GIVEAWAY CARD RANDOMIZED WILL BE A ROOKIE CARD OF ONE IF NOT THE TOP MLB HR RECORD HOLDER. 

2000 TOPPS STARS (1 IN 4 BOXES A HIT)

2002 TOPPS STADIUM CLUB (1 IN 2 BOXES A HIT AVG)

2002 UD ROOKIE UPDATE (2 HITS IN BOX ON AVG)

2003 TOPPS STARS (1 IN 5 BOXES AUTO)


2002 TOPPS SERIES 2 RETAIL (HITS?)

LET THE TEAM SELECTION BEGIN!

    1. Hey...sorry your cards got returned today for "lack" of customs. My wife put stamps and didn't realize they were leaving the country. I will get them back out tomorrow with a few extras for you!
