I'm just testing the waters here to see if anyone would be interested in a case break of this stuff with each person getting picking a team therefore they would be 20 spots.

How it works is we divide the whole cost of the case by 20 so each spot will be a fair share. When the case arrives I video the case break so everybody can see the break as it happens and I will send whoever had Arsenal all the arsenal cards that were pulled out of the break etc. With there being 10 hits per box that means 60 per case so if the correlation was perfect between teams you get 3 big hits from you're team and all the extra hits of your team like base and inserts.

They are attempting one on blowout however it will struggle to work as they are no fans of the lower teams as this will only work with all 20 teams being picked.

Now to the cost:

Case price: $1235 + $75 (shipping from the states to here) = $1310 + ($3 x 20 to ship your teams cards from here) $60= $1370 + $60 (customs)= $1430

So each spot costs: $1430 divided by 20 = $71.50 approx.

With $10 per spot being paid FINAL PAYMENT = $61.50 PER SPOT.

I'll be taking Aston Villa. So if anybody is interested in a team let me know but just to be fair no one can come in and take for example the top 5 teams, each person is limited to one spot for now and if we are struggling to fill all the spots then people can take a second if they wish.

Just throwing this out there to see if people are interested :)

Arsenal- dvsgooner (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Aston Villa- Portlaw (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Cardiff City- Alan (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Chelsea- soccercardz (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Crystal Palace- dvsgooner (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Everton- harryl1878 (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Fulham- rwood93372 (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Hull City- Tollyman (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Liverpool- Tollyman (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Manchester City- dimon1975-0820 (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Manchester United- Bibster (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Newcastle United- Harryl1878 (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Norwich City- pnchocolates (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Southampton- Alan (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Stoke City- dimon1975-0820 (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Sunderland- pnchocolates (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Swansea City- Bibster (deposit paid) (final payment made)
Tottenham Hotspur- soccercardz (deposit paid) (final payment made)
West Bromwich Albion- Phild (deposit paid) (final payment made)
West Ham United- rwood93372 (deposit paid) (final payment made)

All set information is in the original thread about this set and this for the case break only so if your interested let me know.

Just to clarify if a printing plate not of a team or pele auto etc is pulled it will be randomly drawn to a person in the case break.

This case break will work with 10 or 20 people so we will see how numbers go. If we are to do this with 10 people each will need to take 2 teams, the second team of which will be randomly drawn to you

Hi Sean,

Of course I remember you! No need to re-introduce yourself Sean =)

I can only ship via UPS Worldwide Expedited. Lots of international interest coming in right now for the Topps Premier Gold...looks like it could be a sleeper product.

Here's what I can do:

1 Case 2013/14 Topps Premier Gold - $1234.95
UPS Worldwide Expedited - 75

Total = $1304.95

Please let me know if you'd like to order and I would be more than happy to send you a paypal request. Hope you are doing well Sean.

thanks
D



So shipping is slightly less than anticipated so I will adjust cost in a little bit and as soon as all slots are filled we can get to ordering on this product

@spanish and @ashleyyoungFTW - we are probably not going to be able fill all 20 spots so what we'll do is get 10 people who will take 2 spots (currently have 7 who will) and random draw to see what second team they get. Most of us who are taking a second place are only doing so so that we can get this ordered and have no real want for the second team so when the random draw is done if for example I get crystal palace you can get in contact with me and buy that spot from me at the same price as all the other spots if you want it. But it is up to whoever gets the spot as to whether they want to sell it or keep.

Very surprised myself as well. I assumed those two would have been snapped up straight away, a potential Lampard, Hart, Aguero, Navas, the possibilities of top players goes on and on

Just an update. It's clear that we won't be able to fill all 20 spots so it will have to be 10 people who are willing to take 2 spots and each persons additional spot can then be sold off if the holder of the spots wants to sell it and if someone would like the spot after it has been assigned. We currently have 8 people taking 2 spots so we need 2 more people. I'm just waiting on replies and we could have 10 spots full and ready to go.

A $200 deposit will need to be placed so it'll be $20 each now with the remaining due in December

Ok ladies and gentlemen we have all 10 spots full. I will randomise the ten teams tonight at about 9. I can video the randomiser, it'll be a bit awkward but if you would rather that just let me know? I will put the names and teams into it and click the randomise button 3 times and after that third time those will be the team assigned to each member.

chuck332 who was originally down for spurs never replied to pm asking would he take 2 spots as that how we need to move forward so to be fair to him if anyone gets spurs and is ok with selling it he is interested in the spot

Just to update the $200 deposit to Blowout has been paid so we won't need to pay the remainder till December time.

Someone brought up a good point and I thought I'd leave it up for discussion. There are dual, triple and quad jersey cards in this set, but if a dual jersey card contains for example a man united and man city player what should we do to determine which team gets the card?

give it to those that have the least jersey cards.

Single cards get handed out first, then dual, triple and quad jersey cards in that order.

If utd & city are on a card and city has 2 single shirts to utd 3 then they get it.

other wise draw lots for it.

You do need to get this sorted before as if one of the cards has a patch it could be worth 100's!!

And not to put too much pressure on I'd be very unhappy to miss out on a dual 'patch' card with Gerrard as one of the players!! :o
Yeah but of those will work. With regards to picking picking someone with the fewest jerseys do you think it best to give it to the person with fewest hits? For example United has 2 jerseys and 2 autos and Man city has 1 jersey and 4 autos then eve though City have less jerseys they have more hits.

With regards to a patch dual and price I think the patches that will reach the 100's range is the jumbo patches. I can't see a dual patch of gerrard competing with a jumbo patch of his

I think it should be a random draw if there is more than one team on a card.

This is how it's done on the many case breaks I have seen in the US for Basketball etc, not based on how many other cards someone has got out of the break.

Sounds like probably the only way that will work without it getting too complicated but would be gutting if it means somebody get a third jersy while someone else misses out completely. Still that's life I suppose! B)
I know everybody didn't want the lower teams but I've a feeling this product will be highly watered down with lower players as to fill up the hits in the packs. Unless collation is done perfectly I can see the lower teams getting more hits.

I'll leave it open to the others to put in their comments but as for now we'll do a random draw for the split team card

Ok everyone it's about time to update this so people can get their funds together as payment will be needed on the 20th if Blowout's release date is correct so payment will be taken in the coming days. I will send all participants a pm to look at this thread again for the updates:

1. I rang UPS asking if there will be customs and they said if shipped international there would be, I inquired how much but they said they would need the exact weight which I didn't have but I ordered a case with them before and was charged 60 euro but it was slightly heavier I would think so I will put a customs charge of $60 in which is $3 per slot and when it arrives I will show the customs form in the video so people know how much it was if it's less I will refund the couple of cents to each of you and if more which I suspect it will be I'll just pay the extra.

2. Not many people did this the first time round (most sent it friends or paid for the fees) but it was ok for those who did as it was only $20 so it wasn't so bad. But when sending the money please make sure if sending it under paying for goods and services that you pay for the fees. I can't afford to be paying the fees for everybody's slot not with it being about $1000 we'll be sending over to Blowoutcards.

3. Finally after the cards are received all packages will be sent regular shipping with proof of postage being kept but if once the break is done you would like tracked shipping you can let me know and send over the extra for shipping. If you wish the normal postage then please ignore this point.

4. Final payment price has been updated in the first post. If you have one spot it costs $61.50 and if you have 2 spots it costs $123.00

We'll also set out the rules for dual jerseys etc over the coming weeks :)

Just received an email back from them saying that they look for payment 7 days before release once topps have confirmed it with them. They still have their date as the 18th so for now we have to look to get all payments by the 11th just in case they do look for it then so if all members left to pay could pm and let me know when they can that'd be great :)

is it too late to have a spot for this?
Many members took a second team even though they had no interest in a second to help get the break going which i'm very grateful for and i'm sure everyone else is too so if you look in the first post for a team you'd like you can contact the members name next to it as they might sell you the spot, I don't think spots like Man utd, liverpool etc will be sold though but it doesn't hurt to ask whoever has the team you'd like :-)

Crystal Palace is for sale... ;)
Very tempting!!

Out of interest if I did go for Palace does that mean I will end up with all Palace players? Will I have the chance to draw chase cards (jersey, auto) from players of other teams?

If Portlaw or anyone can answer that, then I will buy your Palace spot.

James
I'll do my best to try clear it up for your James :) if you for example get crystal palace you will get all cards of crystal palace players, that means all base jersey and auto cards of that team. If a dual card of for example palace and hull is pulled, the fairest thing to do would be random draw it. If for example a pele auto is pulled it will be random draw among everyone to see who gets it as he wont have a team in the premier league. Hope this helps

Thanks for responding, Portlaw, to clear that up :) most helpful and is very fair.

If dvsgooner is offering his Palace spot I will be happy to buy that from him.

What is the best way to proceed with this?
And just so its completely clear if a dual of 2 different teams is pulled its random drawed between those 2 teams not all teams :-) well the palace spot is paid for by dvsgooner so if you get in contact with him and send him over the full payment for the spot and when he confirms he has received payment I will put your name down for the palace spot

I reckon Portlaw got the best deal here, almost every insert is Villa!
I just had all the odds wrote out there and it shows that once the international, match winners and future stars autos are put up villa autos will not make up as much as you may think maybe 10% of the auto checklist maybe less and the triple and quad relics are very short numbered very low so it looks like the single relics will be mass produced to fill boxes as this product doesn't look like its going to be rare so Villa have 4 of the 24 single relics and none of the dual are dedicated just to villa

Ok folks, it's time to finalise the rules for the break with regards to dual's triples etc.

First I know there is a lot of Villa in this but if a Villa auto is pulled and the same players auto is pulled again in a dual or triple with another team I will count myself out of the draw for that card. The same goes for a relic card unless the relic in the dual triple etc is a patch in which case I'll keep my name in the draw for that one (if a draw has to be done with my name in it, I'm ok with Tollyman or someone doing the draw to make people feel more comfortable about the draw).

Now to the rules:

1. If a card is drawn with 2 or more teams (auto, relic or plate) a random draw will be done between those teams for the card.
2. If an international auto is pulled and the player is in international kit as expected it will be random draw among all members regardless of the club he plays for.
3. If an auto is pulled of a player not in a club kit eg. Pele it will be random draw amongst all members.
4. I doubt this will happen but if players like Ronaldo, Bale or Zola are not in their English club kit it will be random draw amongst everyone.

These are just an initial outline, if anyone has any thoughts about these or would like to add anything or change anything just post it up and we can see everyones thoughts :)

Topps has announced a promotion for 2013-14 Topps Premier Gold aimed at case breakers.

The top five most watched breaks posted on YouTube win prizes such as autographed items and boxes. The video with the most views wins a pair of signed Cristiano Ronaldo boots (cleats).

To qualify, case breakers must notify their distributor (or Topps rep if they buy direct) of their plans by December 30, which is just a few days after the set's official launch. Breakers busting at least one case of the product must send the URL of the YouTube break to their distributor by January 10.

The contest closes on January 17 at midnight EST. Topps said winners will be notified by January 20.


Not sure if you guys want us to enter the break into this, might make some nice prizes for FCF if we could get members to view the break and maybe get it into the top 5

Hi Sean ...

I thought the international stars auto would go to the respective clubs ...

Ronaldo (Manchester United)
Bale (Tottenham Hotspur)
Zola (Chelsea)

Apart from those who never plays for EPL club such as Pele then it should go to the random draw for all members ...
I hear what your saying and those auto's are in the star players list so they should be in a team kit but where the problem comes in is in the international auto list:

Gareth Bale: if he is in his welsh kit and I want to assign just to a club he played for then your going to have Spurs and Southampton so either way your going to end up with a random draw.

And the basic principal when we started was you get every player from your team in the set. So if Bale in welsh kit is pulled and we included that as both spurs and southampton then not every person is getting the player from the team in the set and that's why we have to set it out that only i club kit so no one will feel disappointed that they are not getting a player which they should, do you know what I mean? I know your going to have dual's as well where people may not be happy but it was stated in the start about those having to be split and they are short printed so we shouldn't have that problem too much, hopefully.

But the Bale Ronaldo and Zola in the star players auto list will almost definitely be in club kit so this shouldn't be a problem :)

Personally I think the players in international gear should be randomed but if everyone would like it done another way we can do unanimous vote for it

My thoughts.

I think the principle is that it is CURRENT team for automatic qualification to get the card.

Players not currently at an EPL club should be drawn randomly amongst members in the break.
The way I would see it is for example if Peter Schmeichel was in this set and in his Villa kit, even though he doesn't play for any team anymore I would want him to go to the Villa spot cause he's in his Villa jersey, if he was in his United jersey it wouldn't appeal to me as much.

Personally I saw the principal as being all about a particular team not player, so whether its someone who played for them 100 years ago 1 year ago or currently if it was in the teams kit it went to them. We have 2 opinions about this a few more would be helpful to finalise it :)

This is a big question - If there are for example 7 cards that need to be random drawn amongst everyone in the break there is one of 2 possibilities:

1. We put the 11 names in the random draw and the first 7 names out will each get one and the first out will have first pick, second will have second pick and so on. This way they will be spread out and cut down on the draws made.

2. We do 7 separate draws where the same person has the potential of winning all 7 cards and everybody will get none of the random draw cards.

Which do you guys think?

Unfortunately it has been almost 2 weeks and I'm yet to hear from harryl1878 regarding payment. I will give him till the weekend to respond and if not his 2 team spot of Everton and Newcastle will be available. If anybody is interested in these spots let me know as if they are not taken we will have to cancel the break and will lose our deposit

Thanks for everything you've done to ensure this happens, Sean. It's much appreciated.
There's no thanks necessary I'm just glad we could get this together. If sent from Blowout on the 27th which is the approx. release date then we should have it the 31st or 2nd. I'll upload the video and scans of the hits the evening it is received and will get them sent out within 3 days (just make sure everyone is happy with the players classified and there are no disputes but the rules will be made clear once payment is made and to get the random draws done and to confirm addresses). Looking forward to the release now :)

Now that this is covered we talk about the set itself. Are people happy with the players which Topps have put into the set of the teams you support?

Personally I'm happy with the Villa players chosen Benteke, Guzan and Weimann all club favourites. The only other one I'd love to be in the set is Gabby but I wont complain

I'm not sure how my accent will be perceived in the video, I don't have a strong Irish accent so hopefully I can be understood but if not please go easy on me :P

And to those that have sent pm's I've bogged down with college exams so apologies if I've yet to reply

Ok guys I just had a mini panic attack there for a second. I got spikes from the US and were delivered via UPS and was charged customs of 50 euro on something that was similar weight I would think but only a tenth of the price.

I entered the info herehttps://wwwapps.ups.com/ctc/request?loc=en_IE&appId=fctc and THANKFULLY price makes little difference and it radically changes based on SIZE so we should be perfectly fine as long as an extremely big box is not used for this as they are only 6 small boxes, they'll be tiny. We will have $130 to pay for the customs ($60 from everyone and I'll put the $70 that I would have paid for a second slot into this) and I expect to be no more than 100 based on the website there.

I'm not trying to panic everyone just giving a heads up for everyone so they know that the part of payment made for customs fees is needed, I'm currently asking blowout for exact dimensions but I'm very confident it'll have it covered with the $130 we have to pay to it :)

And for anybody who wants to chime in say we made a mistake by not getting them from the UK, 60 packs at 20 pound each (I think thats what I saw) is 1200 pound and that would be almost 300 pound more expensive than we paid for this and that is without postage to each person in the UK price ;)
