Oh man you don't have to do that! Lol, you guys are great.

I thought since we were a pretty close knit group of members it would be fun to do some secret santa stuff for cards. That way I can send Homerun some of my Cubs cards

Winter meetings start Monday, hopefully some stuff happens. I hate how slow the offseason gets

Always looking to trade if anyone else is interested. I might shop JD Martinez around

It'll be great to add to each other's collections since we know each other so well.

This league is the best.

Going to wait until Friday to see if D2R or SAF want to join. After that we can get rolling

So here's what I'm thinking on Saturday or Sunday I will take all of the names and random them off online and then match them up based off of order. Like so (the bold would be the pair that buy for each other):

Person 1
Person 2

Person 3
Person 4


Person 5
Person 6


So this would still be random pairings. Not exactly sure what to do yet if it's an odd number of people. So I don't care if you buy a card off of eBay or out of your collection as long as it's at least a $10 amount. I assume we can all trust each other since we're a pretty good group of veteran Blowout members that we don't need to post tracking #'s, etc.

Since this is online it'll be very difficult to be a secret since you need a name to send your gift. Lol, so once the list has been completed over the weekend I'll post the results on this thread and PM you what the member you've been paired up with collects so you can have an idea on what to get. I think this will work better if it's one single card but that's really up to you, just not a 250 count of commons, ten $1 relics or auto's. You catch my drift. There's not a date set on anything although I think it's fair to have a time frame to have your gift sent to the recipient by no later than December. I hope most will have it out within a week or two.

Also, if you have any comments, concerns, suggestions please don't hesitate! I've never done this before so if you have any ideas that will help feel free

One thing you could do is split the names into 2 groups. Then, have another person random one group without their name, and you do the group without your name. Each person would have to compile the address and collection info for their group and PM each member the info, but that would allow everyone to have a true Secret Santa.

I can do the randomizers/PMs if you guys want, so that literally no one will know who will be giving to anyone else. I can even do something such as:

Randomizer:
Person 1
Person 2
Person 3
Person 4

Person 1 gives to person 2, person 2 gives to person 3, person 3 gives to person 4, person 4 gives to person 1, etc., so you guys can truly get the Secret Santa experience, there will be no bias since I'm not involved in the gifting, and it will work with an odd number of people.

If you guys like this idea, lmk so I can start gathering addresses and collection info.

I appreciate it! I like this idea, lets see what the others think and go from there.

Jac's idea is the best and easiest, IMO

Jac's is the better/easier idea.

So good for Jac’s idea? Really appreciate it, since that’s the only true way to keep it anonymous
