Yea I'll randomize the order of our names (which doesn't really matter but just to be on the up-and-up) and then the order of the listed teams, for the double.

And don't be afraid to just break the hits on video. It is fine by me. Commons are commons and jumping to the hit slots is all I really care about.

If you toss the commons or don’t want them, I believe someone’s kid is staring to collect and may want them. My 10 year old is getting into cards, he’d get a kick if random cards showed up.

I'll do my best to only show hits this time for sure! And will set aside commons again for donations to our various children haha.

My son likes the commons so I'm fine with sending them. Just prefer a shorter video.

It's obviously rare, but sometimes, those base cards from Chrome have value down the road. I believe people are still paying $30 or so for base Julio Rodriguez' from 2019, because a PSA 10 is going for $150+ if they get them graded, and 9's are going for like $80. Obviously, JRod is an outlier, but there are a lot of base rookies from Chrome like Judge/Ohtani/Gunnar, etc. that sell for $10 or more on the regular. A lot of collectors will speculate and buy up base cards to send in for grading, and then you have the repackage companies selling graded rookies like those in what are, essentially, mystery boxes, like "Super Break" etc.

I sent out at least one copy everyone's teams cards, in addition to their hits. Will do the same here for those who want to donate their extras.

Absolutely, he had so much fun opening the extras. The generosity on this board is unbelievable. We're still doing a stack a night and not done.

We seriously should get a master list of folks who have kids and who want commons/extras. I know of three now and would be cool to send out packages for the kids as well!

My soon to be 10 year old son is into Pokemon so my commons will be sent out haha.

OK everyone, the double random has been completed, and we have our teams!

My apologies for not live streaming, I had to settle for recording myself silently while the kids destroyed our home. You know, the usual Friday nights for us parents. Ugh. Anyway, here's the video:

Also, we have 14 packs of Topps Series 1 to rip as our free gift (plus a commemorative patch in each box)...how do we want to sort that out? With the production numbers with Series 1 so high, we likely won't hit shit. Should we just keep the teams the same for those packs too?

Sign me up for commons too. I tend to go overboard on things and am now on four kid baseball teams in some capacity. I use them to hand out to the kids after games. With the last windfall that we got from Joe I've expanded the baseball card rewards to practices as well!

Baltimore/Oakland? Seriously?
These breaks hate me.

The Orioles could have been good… but of their six Top 100 prospects, only one is in this set. Where is Jackson Holliday?

The A’s , on the other hand, could never be good. And this is the second year in a row I’ve landed them.

Oh boy, boom or bust KC. If no Witt I beg for a good Garcia I guess who could be a decent MI. At least there is hope but this one may be more rooting for a big hit or 30 elsewhere, KC has never liked me in breaks so maybe that will change. Here's to redemption luck hitting twice

If anyone is super down on their choice and KC would dramatically brighten their view lmk, I got very lucky last time and I know bad luck in team draws can stink

Just realized I'm going to be out until late tonight. Fingers crossed for everyone, I'll check in on things when I'm back home.

Vaquero is the guy you want. Think I was wrong on Greene, he was in Bowman Draft, along with Holliday.
A low numbered Brady House is a pretty nice second option for Washington too

Morrobel is in this? Or Draft? Trying to figure out what I should be rooting for the Rangers
Morrobel is in this. Gutierrez I think is a good name too.

For anyone looking for checklists I've been using this, I like the team split and bolded autos

Zoom limits it to 40 min, but theres a way around that.
  1. Once the call gets close the official 40-minute limit, a countdown clock will appear in the meeting window. At this point, the host should choose Leave Meeting (not End for All!)
  2. You’ll be prompted to choose a new host – anyone will be fine
  3. Before everyone else has left the original meeting, start a new one using the same joining information. Everyone can now join the new meeting and the 40-minute timer will restart
So once it gets close to 40 minutes, I'll "leave" and someone else just needs to restart it. Makes sense? So Joe, you just might have to pause the draw for a couple minutes before everyone gets back on. I'll start the meeting 1 minute before.

I don’t really understand all the different types of Bowman stuff but per this link there is no Elly De La Cruz auto cards but I think I see some on eBay. Are those different Bownan cards?

It's...weird.

So Bowman is the base set. Within base set Bowman there are chrome cards, autos, inserts, etc.

There is also a different full Bowman Chrome set which is what we are breaking but it has its own checklist, inserts, etc.

Elly was in base Bowman but not in the standalone Chrome set.

Great break, nothing really big for me (I think Witt non auto color maybe? If so that’s actually very nice) but two reds, Morrobel gold, Vaquero, tons of color, that was a fun afternoon watch. Thanks Joe!

Woo Hoo thanks everyone! I think we had another hot case, so congrats to everyone to hit! The cards are already sorted thanks to my friend, so they'll be shipping out Monday fa sho. I'll post a list and some pics soon.
