Hero Habit

You didn’t think either one of our two charity prize packs that we’re giving away tomorrow could get any bigger, did you? You thought, “nah, there’s no way they can possibly sweeten the pot by stuffing more into the pack.” I thought that, too. Thanks to Hero Habit, though, we all thought wrong. Now added to Charity Prize Pack #2 is a $25 Hero Habit gift certificate! The winner will be e-mailed the credit code, and NO I AM NOT SHOWING THE CODE ON CAMERA. Ahem.

But wait… there’s more! Hero Habit, in conjunction with our 2017 Allen & Ginter Charity Case Break, is auctioning off some items for charity. There are some really great and rare items, such as this little gem—it even has a $100 BIN option! Go check out what Hero Habit has to offer, and maybe make a few bids!

The 2017 Allen & Ginter Charity Prize Pack is full of awesome cards and prizes. It is also a great way for you to help us do even more good for an amazing cause! To enter for either or both of these one-person-takes-all giveaways, simply click the PayPal Donate button in the respective prize pack to donate $5 to Big Brothers Big Sisters. After your donation has been received, you will be entered for a chance to win the respective prize pack during the live raffle after the 2017 Allen & Ginter Charity Case Break! You may enter as many times as you like! Entries will be accepted until 1pm C Saturday July 22 2017. The drawing will be held live immediately following the 2017 Allen & Ginter Charity Case Break using to determine the winner. Please, help us raise $2500 for a great cause!

Introducing: Hero Habit

A while back, I got to know a guy from California who is a pretty big A’s fan. He’s known for a few things across the web already, such as the Swingin’ A’s podcast and Hardly Serious (which at the time spawned the much under appreciated Take Me To The Pilot podcast featuring Literal Quirk). Thru our chats, his curiosity about trading cards had been resparked. He even bought into a break or two with us. After a while, his skill in writing, his love of baseball, and his newfound interest in trading cards all morphed into one brilliant hub. HERO HABIT.

Hero Habit was founded in an attempt to bring new collectors to the hobbies surrounding sports and entertainment as well as serve existing collectors with a flexible database, active news feed, and social network designed with them in mind.

Hero Habit is not intended for the casual fan, although they are welcome to stop by. Hero Habit is designed for the die hard, the person who can’t go to the store without returning with a pack of cards, the person who owns more jerseys than regular shirts, the person who camps out at theaters for midnight premieres, the person who buys one comic book to read and a second to keep in mint condition, and the person who has action figures trapped in boxes. We’re here for the people that know that they don’t have a hobby, they have a habit that consumes much of their waking day and we’re here to enable your habit!

His website is incredible—dare I say “tremendous!” It covers pro sports and faux sports (from Baseball to WWE), comics, music, movies, all sorts of trading cards, collectible figures, and a heck of a lot more. Their amazing checklists are sortable and, IMO, the best in the biz. Go ahead and check out the 2017 Heritage checklist for yourself. You’ll be impressed! The site even includes forums to get in on the discussion.

So, please. Do me a favor. Do YOURSELF a favor. Give Hero Habit five minutes of your day today. Kick the tires. Join the community. You’ll be hooked. It’ll be your new habit.
