The 2016 breaking season is almost over for us here at Crackin’ Wax, so now it’s time to start thinking about next year. That’s where we need your help. We want you to help us decide which products to break and which charities to benefit in 2017. Please take our survey today and let us know what you’d like to see us break next year.

Thank you!


It’s almost that time! We’re going to be ripping into a case of 2016 Bowman Chrome for a charity break benefitting Make-A-Wish! The break, featuring the lovable LQ as resident card sorter, goes live at 5pm C!

Kraken Wax Is Not Crackin’ Wax

Posted: August 23, 2016 by topher in General
There’s a new breaker on the block, and he goes by the name “Kraken Wax.” To avoid any and all confusion, I must point out that I am Crackin’ Wax, not Kraken Wax. While this certainly seems like a new company selling cola and calling themselves Coak, or a trading card company calling themselves Tahps, I feel I must stress the dissimilarities between the two so that the casual reader and collector will understand the difference between Crackin’ Wax and Kraken Wax.

Firstly, I am a group case breaker. He is a group case breaker.

Oh, wait. Let me start over.

He’s brand new to this, I’ve been doing this since 2008.

He spells it “K-r-a-k-e-n” while I spell it “C-r-a-c-k-i-n’.”

His first tweet was July 31 2016, mine was July 29 2012.

He’s from Philly, I’m from the Twin Cities.

He has a wife and two kids, I have a wife and two cats.

This is his logo:

I am in no way discouraging you from using his services—in fact, let’s spread the love around a little. I am, however, encouraging you to know the difference between the two of us.

Thank you and, as always, keep crackin’ that wax!
