Just a piece of advice, I did the last one very poorly.

When deciding the price of the teams you are going to have to tier them. For example a Hull patch card (amazing patch) #/11 sold for like $16 or something whereas as a Henderson #/5 or #/11 or something sold for over $100.

To ensure you get all spots filled you would have to offer Hull for the cheapest and probably United, Liverpool Arsenal (the case hit teams) for more as they will get better value for the spot. It wouldn't be easy to decide the new prices but it's the only way to entice people into the break and to make it fairer for people to get value for what they are putting in. To charge some $71 for Hull with them making back maybe a quarter of that is not fair and was only told this by an american who does a lot of case breaks and told me this was the way it should have been done and it made a lot of sense.

I really don't think it will get filled unless done that way. Everybody will want united even at a higher price. Look at what Catherine got, even if she was charged over 100 for her spot she got a card worth a couple thousand. A 1/1 hull will be lucky to fetch $50.

Just a bit of advice as I hope we can get another break going. It's really great for the forum :)

And in case anybody thinks I'm just trying to get Villa cards cheaper. The Villa spot would actually be more than $71 if done this way, just to be clear

I got curious at home so if you want to do it by tier I did this as a rough outline, this is simply a suggestion which I feel could make it fairer. This is based just on case price without adding shipping etc and can be transferred over to the actual case by simple maths. You would still have to add shipping of the case and cards from you're home as well.

This is if the case was $1000

Tier 1 $80

Man Utd
Chelsea
Liverpool
Spurs
Arsenal

Tier 2 $65

Aston Villa
Man City

Tier 3 $50

West Brom
Everton

Tier 4 $40

Crystal Palace
Stoke
Cardiff

Tier 5 $30

Hull
Swansea
Southampton
Newcastle
Fulham
West Ham
Norwich
Sunderland

There for if the case cost $1200 you would multiply 1200 by .08 to get the cost of tier 1, by .065 for tier 2, by .05 for tier 3, by .04 for tier 4 and by .03 for tier 5. That would then give the new cost of each team in that tier.

Again just a thought, not only to be fair on everyone but it will entice people who would like some cards of this set to come in on the lower teams :)

pholla for man city <br /><br /><br />and portlaw ill let you do the pricing <br /><br />if you would like to help that would be great many thanks
If you let me know the price of the case you're going buying then I can do the pricing. I will leave the postage and that to you as you will be dealing with that but all you've to do is divide that evenly :)

The actual price of the case is $1255 so the tier prices are:

Tier 1 $100.40

Man Utd
Chelsea
Liverpool
Spurs
Arsenal

Tier 2 $81.58

Aston Villa
Man City

Tier 3 $62.75

West Brom
Everton

Tier 4 $50.20

Crystal Palace
Stoke
Cardiff
Fulham

Tier 5 $37.65

Hull
Swansea
Southampton
Newcastle
West Ham
Norwich
Sunderland

Lynettedoolin will now add postage cost of the case and postage of each person package once the break has taken place :)

If the case price is down to 1199 dollars I'll change the cost per tier accordingly tomorrow as I think I have it done base on 1255 dollars

all payment to be sent normal not gift pm for paypal details
Normal Paypal is mandatory as well please so members are covered should there be any delivery issues either between the supplier & Lynette or when being sent to members.

This way there is no risk of members losing any money, Paypal will cover the risk.

Lynette is doing a great job and it's not fair that she will be liable (or the forum) should anything go astray.

This will also be a requirement for any future box breaks organised on the forum.

Thanks and hopefully you will all get some great hits. :cheers



Actually I din't think about this but for those who are interested in other releases this type of break can be done for everything, be it match attax or andrenalyn ;)

With other purchases and a fail in a payment which should have received I don't think i'll be able to get the funds together in time for this break. If someone else wants Aston Villa please feel free to take the spot so you guys can get the break moving as quickly as possible, sorry about this everyone
