Upper Deck Community Break Box #3: 2002 Upper Deck 40-Man

So far, so good. I’m keeping the one box per day promise going. I think I’ve narrowed my computer shutting itself off issues down to either a RAM or Registry problem. I unfortunately have no time and little know-how to fix it for a while. Hopefully my computer continues to cooperate well enough to keep […]

Upper Deck Community Break Box #2: 1999 Upper Deck Retro

Are you ready to take a trip back in time? I hope so, because we’re opening 1999 Upper Deck Retro.

Keep your fingers crossed that our time traveling is more like “Back to the Future” and less like “Blast From the Past.”

How has "cool" not become passe slang by now?

It’s worth mentioning […]

Upper Deck Community Break Box #1: 1999 Upper Deck PowerDeck

Aaaaaannnd, we’re off! For those of you who are new to the breaks, I’ll ask you to be patient. The breaking of the boxes is the easy part. I taped the whole thing, box by box, and those HD videos take a long time to upload (at least an hour each).

I’ve also been having […]

2012 Topps Allen & Ginter Case Break Recap and Review

Ginter! Gint-A-Cuffs! Fighting! Ripping! Ripping Packs! Packs of Ginter!

Video! Finally!

Slow on the draw as usual getting our video and review up for everyone to enjoy and/or summarily ignore. Then to make matters worse, we forgot to shoot our card close-ups! Shoddy craftsmanship. Just you wait. As soon as blogging becomes our full-time […]

2011-12 Panini Past & Present Basketball Video Box Break & Review

Back in March, I did something I rarely do. I posted a preview for an upcoming product. While this blog comments on hobby news here and there, it’s usually in a editorial/commentary fashion rather than a straight-up news format. What made it even more unusual was that it was for a basketball product. I’ve flirted […]

A Gimmick of Our Own… 3D Box Breaks!

Hate gimmicks? Hate ironic nostalgia of junk wax era? Hate 25 minute box break videos?!

Then this post is not for you!

If you less-than-hate any or all of those things, let me present something that is bound to amuse you for at least 5% of its running time!


2003 Leaf Community Box Break Video

Hey guys! As Jon mentioned a couple nights ago, we opened our box of 2003 Leaf baseball we purchased with the winnings from a Panini review box. If you’re new to the blog or to the story of this box, I’ll quickly recap in bullet point form.

We opened a high end hockey box from […]

Let’s Not All (Gold) Rush At Once

So, you guys already know about the 5 Jumbo cases we opened of 2012 Topps Series 1.

As you can imagine, that left us with a massive box full of wrappers. Normally these would go to set packing material, but this year Topps announced a very limited-time offer to redeem your wrappers for more cards.


2012 Topps Series 1 Box Break

I just woke up after spending literally all day and night sorting the 5 cases of 2012 Topps Series One. My back is killing me. But, oh, the fun! (Of ripping, not sorting. Sorting is a nightmare). I won’t spoil anything big because we’ll have our breakdown up by tomorrow at the latest, but let’s […]

2011 Topps Finest Baseball Review

In the spirit of catching up on unfinished business, here’s a belated review of the case of 2011 Topps Finest we broke back in October or so. I’d really like to get at least one review up a month since I personally enjoy reading other reviews, so someone hold me to that please. Anyway, as […]
