THE GENERAL GIST
All cards from one 9-box case of 2013 Topps Triple Threads will be used for this break. This break will be a standard team slot break with the usual Loyalty Discount ($5 off for those who joined the previous case break – 2013 Allen & Ginter) and Skunk Rule ($5 refund for any person who does not receive at least one hit within their total combined slots).

BASE CARDS vs HITS
Since this is a hit-heavy product, not all teams will be represented well in base cards. Slot pricing is based mostly on quantity and quality of hits as opposed to total quantity of all card types.

MULTI-TEAM CARDS
Many of the hits in this product feature multiple players from multiple teams on the same card. These cards will be distributed thusly:

  • The team majority owner of the card (i.e. 2 Yankees + 1 Dodgers on 1 card goes to Yankees owner), or
  • The slot majority owner of the card (i.e. 1 Yankees + 1 Dodgers + 1 Braves on 1 card goes to owner with most slots on card), or
  • Highest slot price owner (i.e. 1 Yankees + 1 Braves + 1 Rangers on 1 card goes to highest slot price–Yankees), or
  • Random highest slot price owner (i.e. 1 Indians + 1 Mariners + 1 Marlins on 1 card goes to randomly picked winner)
  • CHARITY EVENT
    This wouldn’t be a Crackin’ Wax Case Break without some sort of charity involvement! This time, $5 from each paid slot will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters! After all cards have been shipped to you, I will donate $150 from you to this amazing organization!

    THE BREAK
    This case break will be broadcast live right here on this page at 7pm Central on Wednesday October 30 2013*. I will be focusing more on the hits and other cards of interest in order to keep the video at a reasonable length. Video of the case break will be uploaded to YouTube and will be made available here.

    DEFUNCT TEAMS
    In the event that a card is pulled in which the team represented is now playing in another city and/or has changed names, it will be assigned to its current counterpart’s slot. For instance, all Montreal Expos cards will be assigned to the Washington Nationals.
