PE what’s the coolest product that you’ve ever done a break with?

I've actually only done SoSH breaks so far. I keep meaning to do some on eBay or Twitter, but I haven't yet.

So, the coolest break so far has been the Stadium Club - love that product.

Everyone is paid. Thank you all for the extra - much appreciated!

We'll break at 8pm eastern on Saturday (8/21). I'll either do the random for the draft right at 8, then break, or I'll do the random around 7:30.

To recap:
Random and break will happen Saturday on Youtube. Links will be posted in this thread
I'll randomize the draft order three times using random.org. The list generated by the third random will be our draft order.
I'll break the case live (12 boxes, 3 cards per box)
After the break, I will post a list of all cards in this thread
We'll then draft in this thread using the draft order generated
Draft will be snake style (top slot picks #1 and #36)
Once the draft is complete, I'll ship everyone their cards via USPS priority mail

Let me know if you have questions

Post 1 has been updated with the list. Here are the pics of the cards. Lighting is bad in this room, so let me know if you want additional pics of particular cards.

Thanks to all who joined - wish we would have seen bigger hits for sure. Definitely some nice cards in there, but not the monster case I was hoping for.

Thank you, PE! I guess it means we have to try again? Lolz.

I’m currently in CT where we have a ton of trees. And we’ve had a lot of rain this year. The maps have the hurricane taking a path right over my home. This probably means a deck chair will blow over and it’ll rain a bit .

Given the combination of a hurricane, a forest, and a terrible power company - they are warning of prolonged power outages.

When we’ve lost power in the past cell service goes with it after a few hours. I will check the thread as best I can but if I’m off grid next week it is not by choice. I will pick as soon as I can.

I may go open some Heritage just to cleanse the palate after that.

Good luck with the storm. My mom is on the CT coast (Stonington) so I'm hoping nothing gets too severe.

Man, I am building an Alabama Crimson Tide-like dynasty in shitty draft positions in these pulls.

Power flickered twice here. I'm up north of Hartford by the airport. I hope that your mom is okay. This storm was a bunch of rain here. We have power. It seems the state was largely spared the worst of it.

Thanks and glad to hear. All good with my mom. She lost power while I was on the phone with her this morning, but got it back quickly.
