I will be expanding on my services a little to help out our international friends. For those who do not live in the US and that have joined in any of my group breaks there will be a mail service offered. I have been doing research over the last few months and came up with a model that I feel is better than most others (especially COMC).

For those not familiar a mail service is a physical US address that international buyers get to use. You have your items sent to a US address and then after you accumulate a bunch of items they are sent to you as one package. This way you save a considerable amount on postage and customs fees.

This is a pilot program for the next few months to make sure it works for those who join in. After the pilot program if the service works out it will be expanded to allow more people to take advantage.

If interested email me at ifish73-mb@comcast.net for all the information.

Still filling Defenders and X-Files.

Would there be any interest in Spider-Man Homecoming? I know it isn't the best and there are long odds at a Keaton auto but the cases are down to $370 and we could make a 25 spot break where the last 15 or so spots snake and the price would only be $20 a spot.

Also Game of Thrones Season 7 Archive box is down to $1000. Looks like it can be broken down to 75 spots. Make it 40 spots where almost all snake and the spot price would be $30.

Will be submitting Ant-Man and Wasp very soon. For once they gave us enough information to not make this a pack draft! Looking like 40-44 spots, roughly $30 a spot.

Yes, I would do Spider-Man Homecoming, but maybe do like 10 spots for $40 each or so. I would make it have a master set as 1 pick, all the single relics as one, and so on. Something like that.

12 spots for auto or sketch (1 guaranteed per box)
1 spot for all relics
1 spot for silver parallels
1 spot for red, blue, black parallels
1 spot for master set (base set and insert sets) or as close as a master set a case gets us

That is 16 spots, probably end up with an extra hit or two based off previous breaks.

That would be around $28 a spot.

We could break it down a little further:
12 spots for auto or sketch (1 guaranteed per box)
1 spot for all single relics
1 spot for all double relics
1 spot for all triple relics
1 spot for all quad relics
1 spot for silver parallels
1 spot for red, blue, black parallels
1 spot for master set (base set and insert sets) or as close as a master set a case gets us

19 spots, $24 a spot.

Think I'd be down for a couple spots in either of those scenarios.

Do you think there is enough interest in a DS9 archive box? I tried a case break when it came out and we couldn't get enough interest to fill it. I see 82 spots combining the base and inserts into one spot. Could make it a 42 spot snake draft where the top two picks don't snake. That would make it around $28 a spot.

Forgot that I did submit for another case of Twin Peaks so keep an eye out for that one.

Got some great news:
The X-Files break is struggling to fill so Blowout said if we fill this break we can have a SECOND ARCHIVE BOX.

Rittenhouse has announced the contents of the Archive Box so here is how it breaks down for the draft:

1 spot for a guaranteed Duchovny or Anderson autograph
1 spot for base and inserts
30 spots for autographs
1 spot for exclusive bronze metal set
1 spot for printing plates
6 archive box exclusive autographs
1 spot for case toppers and any promos

That makes the total breakdown of this break:
2 spots for the 9 case incentive dual Duchovny and Anderson autos
3 spots for the 6 case incentive dual Davis and Schuetze autos
648 spots for autographs (3 per box)
18 spots for each case worth of inserts (not including Mulder Conspiracy)
9 spots for Mulder Conspiracy (2 cards per spot)
18 spots for each case of case topper and wrappers
82 spots for archive box contents

That now comes out to 780 spots not including any of the base cards. 40 spots minimum will get to pick a third time. With this much added to the break and no increase in price this has become a very deep draft in terms of value.

The break is around 1/3 full right now. We can do it!!!!

Keep an eye out for the new Viceroy Space series 2 break. It will be popping up soon. Very limited and very awesome!

I did forget to put in the break that there will be a five spot limit per case for the first few days to give everyone a chance to get in.

Ian you should do a Last Jedi series 2 case break. Cases are on sale at $660, and this product was pretty solid for getting top name signers, due to only 593 cases being made!

You could do 20 spots at around $36 a spot.

This was the breakdown from the last break:
4 base and insert spots
1 blue parallels - base
1 purple parallels - base
1 bronze, silver and gold parallels - base
1 all insert parallels - Black 1/1 not included if one is pulled
1 base patches
1 parallel patches - Black 1/1 is included if one is pulled
6 sketches
1 for all base autos
3 parallel autos

That would be $38 a spot. (660/20=33+3.5*pp=37.90)

Is there enough value there? Since there aren't any scarce autos in the box I didn't think anyone would want to do one at that price. 51 spots at $44.50 spot price. Maybe I am missing something but I think it should be around $1500 for the archive box.

It is on my list to submit. Been getting swamped with break requests and trying to spread them out a bit. The Game of Thrones Season 7 archive box and Spider-Man Homecoming should be showing up any time now. I submitted them the other day. After that I will put in for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
