Now, I’m not saying that I know 100% for sure that I’ll be getting any Silver Slate packs from the ’13S1 case break, but I’m fairly positive that I’ll be getting 5 packs in a few weeks. You see, I sent 50 jumbo wrappers just one week after product launch and just today Topps gave the warning to stop sending in wrappers. This tells me that I’ve got a pretty good shot at seeing some redemption parallel goodness in a few weeks. With that in mind, I will likely be recording the break and posting it to my YouTube channel as opposed to doing a live break.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR MY ’13S1 BREAKERS
Should I get any packs at all–and I think I will–I will send out cards according to team. Because the Yankees slot was owned by two people, I will be dividing those cards up into A and B, just like in the case break. The only difference is that the Yankees cards will be assigned on an every-other basis. For instance, the first Yankees card pulled will go to A, the second to B, the third to A, the fourth to B, the fifth to A and so on.

WHEN WILL I SEND OUT YOUR CARDS?
Great question! For those of you who are participating in my Turkey Red break and are due Silver Slate cards, I will wait to mail your Turkey Reds and Silver Slates at the same time. At this time the Turkey Red boxes are due to arrive before the Silver Slates. Those in the Turkey Red break who are not due Silver Slates will likely get their Turkey Reds first. Those who are participating in my Heritage BoBuBingo instead of my Turkey Red break and are due Silver Slate cards, I will wait to mail your Heritage and Silver Slates at the same time. At this time it appears as if the Silver Slates and my Heritage boxes are due to arrive at around the same time. If you are not participating in either of those breaks, I will simply mail your Silver Slates to you without hesitation!

WHAT ABOUT THE SPRING FEVER REDEMPTION CARDS?
Another great question! The Spring Fever redemption program does not start until 2/20/2013. This is around the same time that I expect my Turkey Red boxes to arrive. The Spring Fever cards will be delivered in the same manner as the Silver Slates–either by themselves, with the Silver Slates, with the Turkey Red break or with the Heritage BoBuBingo.

HOW DO I GET IN ON THESE OTHER BREAKS?
For the Turkey Red 10-Box Break, please see the 2013 Topps Turkey Red 10-Box Group Break Update post. For the Heritage BoBuBingo, see the 2013 Topps Heritage page found under the “BoBuBingo!” menu at the top of the blog. Don’t wait too long, though. Turkey Red slots are almost all sold out and Heritage is already half-full!
