Who Wants to Do a Group Break?

I am kicking around the idea of doing one with a couple of boxes.  This is my first attempt at this so I really hope it is successful.  I have been unable to buy any hobby boxes lately and I am trying to buy a house so my available funds are lower than usual.  I figure the best way to get some boxes would be to open up a group break here to help out on costs.  Obviously I would get the Red Sox but I will sell 14 other slots.  Each person will get two teams with the second team being assigned randomly using Randomizer.

This is what I will be breaking:
1 jumbo box of 2013 Topps Update (10 packs per box, 50 cards per pack, 1 auto, 2 relics, 500 total cards).
1 hobby box of 2013 Panini Golden Age (24 packs per box, 6 cards per pack, 1 auto, 1 relic, 1 mini per pack, 1 box-topper, non-baseball cards will be randomly assigned using Randomizer).
1 hobby box of 2013 Topps Chrome (24 packs per box, 4 cards per pack)

I am asking for $15.00 per slot.  For less than the price of a retail blaster, you will receive all of the cards from two teams out of three hobby boxes.

The way this will work is as follows:
1.  Comment here first and claim your team.  After 14 teams are claimed I will assign the other 15 teams randomly to those who have made claims using Randomizer so each person will get two teams.
2.  Submit your payment using Paypal (please mark it as a gift).  My paypal address is brad_ewalt AT yahoo DOT com.
3.  Email me at shadowking86 AT gmail DOT com and tell me the blog name you used to claim your team, the email address you sent payment from, and which team you claimed.

I will update the teams as they are paid for.
