Why should I try box breaking?
Value: Without a doubt, box breaking is one of the most cost effective ways to get cards you’re interested in for an affordable price. Instead of having to buy a box yourself and invest hundreds of dollars, you can pay a fraction of the price to get the teams you’re interested in. There is also a certain amount of quality control that comes with box breaking: buying a spot in a higher-caliber break means you could potentially get an extremely valuable card at a cut-rate.
Community: Join us on live streams
Another great benefit to box breaks is the camaraderie that goes along with the break. These are typically live streamed with a chat group running alongside. Collectors can share in the excitement of watching pull after pull, hit after hit. Some breaks run auctions during the stream so participants can have a little fun competing with one another. There can even be bonuses and giveaways during the livestream which is another added benefit to participating live.
Q & A
What is a box break?
A box break (also called a group break) is an event where collectors buy a spot in the break in exchange for receiving some of the cards in the case/box/pack. These are typically live streamed so that all participants in the box break can share in the excitement of seeing the pulls and hits as they happen. Box breaks have become a popular and economically efficient way for collectors to get potentially higher-value or rarer cards without having to buy a whole box or case themselves.
How do box breaks work?
Box breaks can be done several different ways and it depends entirely on the breaker that you decide to buy with. Below are some of the more common types of breaks:
Pick Your Team (PYT)]: Collectors buy a team (or multiple teams) and they receive every card pulled from that team. Prices for the teams are predetermined based on popularity/checklist of the team.
Random Team Break: Collectors buy a spot with a certain number of teams per spot. The spots are placed in a list randomizer and the teams are randomly allocated. The collector receives all cards pulled associated with their teams.
Pick a Pack: Prior to the start of the break, collectors will select a pack number to be opened during the break. They receive all of the cards within that pack.
Draft Style: This break works similar to pro-style drafts. Breakers use a randomizer to determine draft order. After all of the cards have been pulled, the top person gets first dibs at picking a card. The second person gets to pick a card from the remainder, and so on until all of the cards have been pulled. There are some variations on how breakers run this draft style.
Division Break: In this break, collectors buy an entire division of a sport. For example, you would buy one of the four NFL divisions and then receive all of the cards from all the teams in that division. This break is typically more expensive but it gives collectors a better chance at getting a hit from the break and receiving more cards overall.
