Old School Group Break 2 Team Assignments + Surprise
By now, I have heard from everyone participating in our break and I expect all payments to arrive early next week, if they haven’t already via Paypal. With that said, I have already ordered our boxes and even included one more impromptu purchase: a box of 2002 Gold Label, which I’m sure will be a favorite and will give us plenty of numbered cards and a couple of game-used to boot. To recap, our break includes:
2001: Fleer Genuine
2002: Bowman’s Best, Donruss Elite, Fleer Showcase, Topps Gold Label
2003: Donruss Elite
2004: Donruss Studio, Donruss World Series
As far as the team drawing goes, everyone ended up with at least one of their two preferred teams. Some even ended up with both! Like I said, if you were the only one to select a particular team as one of your preferred teams, you automatically received them. Anyone that listed more than two teams in their comment was automatically supplied with the first two teams they mentioned as their preferred teams. I only asked for two, not a depth chart, guys. A whopping 17 teams (Cubs, White Sox, Reds, Indians, Marlins, Astros, Royals, Brewers, Twins, Yankees, A’s, Phillies, Mariners, Cardinals, Rays, Rangers, and Blue Jays) were awarded without the use of random.org!
5 teams were decided by a battle in the randomizer. The winners are bolded (FYI, I started recording this as proof, but then realized nobody would be able to read a damn thing on the screen, rendering this idea useless).
Braves: Chris Mays, Captain Canuck
Orioles: Beardy, Peterson
Red Sox: Play at the Plate, Shoebox Legends
Dodgers: Chuck, Night Owl
Mets: WickedOrtega, Night Owl, Joe M.
If you’re counting, those make 22 teams that have been assigned. The final 8 were randomized among everyone else who was not yet assigned 2 teams. Here’s the screenshot of that.
The Bottom Line:
1. oldschoolbreaks – Padres, Expos
2. Play at the Plate – Rangers, Angels
3. Shoebox Legends – Cubs, Red Sox
4. First Day Issue – Reds, Mariners
5. Chris Mays – (Devil) Rays, Diamondbacks
6. WickedOrtega – Marlins, Rockies
7. Chuck – Yankees, Pirates
8. Night Owl – Dodgers, Tigers
9. Captain Canuck – Blue Jays, Braves
10. Beardy – Athletics, Orioles
11. darkship – Astros, Royals
12. Joe M. – Indians, Mets
13. lonestarr – White Sox, Twins
14. Peterson – Brewers, Giants
15. Dan – Phillies, Cardinals
Seeing how everyone has at least one of their preferred teams (we’ll just say mine is San Diego since I usually pull them, I deferred mine to Chuck, no, not PIT), everyone should be at least somewhat happy. Trading of teams will be allowed under the following condition: If anyone agrees to trade teams, let me know in this post before the first box is broken. Both sides must confirm the trade here.
