Group Break Update: Teams Reduced to $15!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone. After getting feedback from many of you, I have decided to keep the break as it is, and try my hardest to get the other slots filled. The main reason I did not want to split it up, is simply, that you all claimed your teams and paid your money while under the impression that you would get five (or six) boxes of cards from your team. It would be unfair to, for example, take three boxes worth of Yankees cards, and in return, give you three boxes worth of Padres cards (no offense, Padres fans).

I am now up to 16 teams claimed/sold. I need 24. If 24 teams total are claimed, I will be able to cover the price of the boxes and come pretty close to covering most of the sipping charges, but I may have to eat some of that.

In order to entice people to either join the break or pick up extra slots, I have decided to reduce the price of the remaining teams down to $15. For those of you who are not aware of the break, I am planning on opening one hobby box each 2012 Topps Gypsy Queen, Archives, Heritage, Series 1 Jumbo, and Series 2 Jumbo. I am also throwing in a hit from my own collection to EVERY team that does not have one pulled from these boxes. More details can be found here. I will keep the one-team-five-box format as it was originally intended to be. I will also add the bonus box of Gypsy Queen if I can sell all 30 teams. I would like to bust it open regardless, but if I am unable to at least break even, I might just have to save it for my next break.

Anyway, here's a breakdown of the teams that are claimed, as well as the teams that are still open. Let me know if you are interested, and we will get this thing going. The boxes should be here Friday, so I would REALLY like to get this going as soon as they arrive.
