Ok ya'll. This here is the first listing of Blaster League managers. If you have ripped a blaster and created a team, let me know in the comments so I can add you to the updated post a few days from now.
Some important clarifications:
You do NOT have to make a video. If you want to, go for it. If you don't, don't. I just need some documentation of the blaster rip, be it in video, pictures, or text.
You do NOT have to buy a blaster. Eight packs, be it retail or hobby is sufficient. Blasters offer two advantages: they are slightly cheaper, and no RuthMantleMaris cards.
You do NOT have to have the team ready by opening day, the deadline is April 18th, and if you did one on the 19th, I couldn't stop you anyway.
You do NOT have to freak out about not being able to join the fantasy league, If you put in the time and effort to rip, document and create a blaster team you're in. 20 team limit is rescinded.
COMMISH RULING FOR PUNK ROCK PAINT:
You cannot use the Chase Utley World Series Highlight card for your second basemen. The Damn Yankees won so all World Series Highlights are banned from my league. You CAN however utilize my One Insert or SP rule which Thorzul cruelly ignored and use Gordon Beckham as your second baseman. OR you could scribble out the position on Thome or one of the other cards you didn't use and write in Second Base. Totally up to you
SPECIAL MADE UP FIVE MINUTES AGO NIGHT OWL RULE:
You do NOT have to buy eight packs of 2010 Heritage if you hate it and it sucks and Topps should have pulled the plug on this crap and it's the worst set ever bleargh. You can buy eight packs or one blaster of ANY Topps Heritage Base set* (no High #s) from 2001-2010 and build your team with them. Don't whine at me when your big stars in the box are Barry Bonds, Jeff Bagwell, Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens. Mix and match years, I don't care. Just don't do this.
Ok, here's the list of people who have their teams ready. Notice I am not on this list yet.

I checked one more time for links before hitting post and didn't find any. If you've done a team and e-mailed me and posted a comment and FedExed me your cards and threw rocks at my window to get my attention I just didn't see it. Leave a comment here with the link please.
* Note: 2002 Topps Heritage Blasters have 10 packs instead of 8. In the incredibly unlikely event someone finds one on eBay just to use for this game you can't use the whole blaster, just 8 packs chosen beforehand.
