The “Topps Bundle” allows you to lock in the same team up front for 3 Select “Topps” branded Crackin’ Wax Case Breaks* in 2017! Each bundle is $99, non-refundable—that’s $33 for each of the 3 Select “Topps” branded Crackin’ Wax Case Breaks* you’ll be locked into. This bundle DOES NOT cover the entire cost of your teams, however $33 for each of the 3 Select “Topps” branded Crackin’ Wax Case Breaks* you’re in with the bundle will be discounted after full team pricing in each respective break is determined. Once full team pricing in each respective break is determined, you will be invoiced your final team price(s) for each respective break.

If you want to be one of the first to lock up your team, subscribe to our Group Breaks Mailing List. Once teams go live for the 2017 Topps Bundle, an e-mail blast will be sent out only to those subscribed.

See that? Those are the only teams that are currently left in our 2016 Bowman Draft Jumbo charity case break. The first teams went very quickly. I don’t expect these to last much longer. I might also be giving one of these teams away for FREE! For all the details on this break including how you could end up with a free team, just head to the 2016 Bowman Draft Jumbo charity case break page—and Pick Your Team FAST!


What an amazing event! It was just the second time that we assembled and conducted a Ladies’ Night charity mixer in honor of all of the amazing women and girls in our hobby. We lucked out with the nine mystery boxes that we selected (2007 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection, 2008 Upper Deck SPA, 2008 Upper Deck SPx, 2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars, 2011 Topps Tier 1, 2016 Topps Legacy, 2016 Topps Tribute, 2016 Topps Triple Threads, and 2016 Panini Immaculate). The boxes definitely overperformed. Out of the 50 expected hits, we pulled 53—including a 1/1 Ken Griffey Jr.! When all was said and done, we were able to donate $150 to March of Dimes!


While we did endure a very rare hiccup during our YouTube stream, we were able to get back up and running and finish out the break in phenomenal fashion. You can go to our YouTube channel to check out both halves of the break. For those of you with less free time, or for those that just want to check out the hits, check out the Hits Recap video posted below.

Thank you so much to all those who participated in the break, to those who helped to promote it, and to LQ for hosting it. Thank you to Blowoutcards for the awesome discounts as always. Also, thanks to Topps, Upper Deck, and Panini for producing such fantastic products!

If you’re interested in joining one of our future breaks, be sure to subscribe to our Group Breaks Mailing List to be the first to be notified of new breaks. We’ll also be giving away one free spot in our upcoming Bowman Draft break if we can get to 2300 Twitter followers before the break sells out, so be sure to give us a follow there, too!

Thanks again, everyone, and keep crackin’ that wax!


It’s almost here—our second Ladies’ Night Charity Mixer! This year we’ll be busting open nine mystery boxes of baseball product from 2011 to 2016 and we’ll be donating to March of Dimes. We invite you to watch my wife tear into some packs of mid- to high-end baseball cards, so be back here at 5pm C on Saturday October 22 2016!
