I will be putting in for Lost in Space 2 in the next couple of days. Just needed to get some clarification since they changed the breakdown to now needing three sets to guarantee at least one of every card.

When you say two cases guessing you mean one full 16 box case which is two inner cases. Snake pack draft. Can't really do it any other way since there are no set odds and won't see them until release.

That would be a long draft unless it snakes more than once.

2 master cases is 288 packs.

Each spot picks two times = 144 spot draft approximately $25.50/$23.50 spot price
Each spot picks three times = 96 spot draft approximately $36.25/$34.25 spot price
Each spot picks four times = 72 spot draft approximately $47.00/$45.00 spot price

Any preference? Anyone else who would join have a preference?

Will submit this in the next week or so.

Had two breaks go up the other day and both filled before I could get on here!

I was able to add three more sets to the Lost in Space break and it is almost half full already:

Here's a dumb question, never been in any of your pack draft breaks. You break all packs, so we know what's in each one and we draft what pack we want, correct?

That is correct. You can check past breaks of Ultra X-Men, 2016 Marvel Masterpieces and Marvel Retro to see how they went.

Infinity War is already 3/4 full!

Still trying to finish off the last couple of spots in that Lost in Space break.

Just submitted one for X-Files. Three autographs per box and cheap spot price ($25). Hoping to make it to incentives on this one. They are dual autographs.


Forgot to put one in for 2018 Marvel Masterpieces. Was going to do a single snake pack break.

Wasn't planning on it. Tried to do a break of Season 2 but it didn't fill. Figured Season 3 would be the same.

Looking at some of the upcoming releases and need some input. Let me know what looks good and what doesn't. Also if there are any others that I missed.

Defenders - current release date 10/31
12 boxes * 20 packs = 240 packs. 4 packs per pick, 60 spot break = $26.25/$24.25 spot price

Star Wars Galaxy - current release date is 11/14
24 `hit' spots
4 spots for base and insert - guess as usual without set ratios
3 spots for parallels
This layout should yield a few snake spots, 31 spots = $34.50/$32.50 spot price

Star Wars Finest - current release date is 11/28
I am not sure I understand the sell sheet. Are the Rogue One, Droids and Solo part of the base set or inserts? It looks like the base set is only the main 8 movies and these are separate.
16 `hit spots'
2 base spots - Depending on collation there might only be three base sets in a case this might include the extended, depends on the odds.
3 spots for inserts
4 spots for parallels
hopefully there will be a couple of snake picks with this format, 25 spots = $34.25/$32.25 spot price

Ant-Man & Wasp - current release date is 11/30
16 boxes * 15 packs = 240 packs. 4 packs per pick, 60 spot break = $24.00/$22.00 spot price

Star Trek Enterprise Archives Series 1 - current release date is 12/12
This break will be in 2 set groups to get the sketch card bonus
1 sketch
6 autographs
2 quotable sets
2 ships of the line sets

11 spots = $41.50/$39.50 spot price

All look pretty good to me, any spots around the $40 is fine, too much higher and I have to think about it a bit harder LOL!

Just saw that there is an archive box of Star Trek Beyond at $1,300. Great product with tons of top autographs. 80 spot break at $21/$19 or 40 spot snake at $37.50/$35.50.
https://www.blowoutcards.com/non-spo...chive-box.html
Any interest?

I'd be in on Defenders, Antman/Wasp and Beyond. I might be in on Star Wars if i can swing it. I would be very happy to try more Beyond. Still need 7-8 cards for the master set.

If you do another Bombshells Series II break, I bet it would fill. Despite my crappy luck so far, I'd still be down for a couple spots...
