These Are The Breaks

Before my finances got all out of whack and I had a steady stream of disposable income, I was able to take part in a couple cheap group breaks.

Now, normally, I give each of these their own post, but I’m not going to. Neither resulted in anything for my player collections anyway, so each [...]

’96 & Hits Community Break Box #4: 2004 Topps Clubhouse Collection

Sorry about the delay in getting this last box posted. I swear it wasn’t a suspense tactic, just a combination of a heavier than usual work load and an unexpected social life.

Why delay things any further? Hop in car, we’re driving to a little town known as Hit City, population: YOU!

It all [...]

’96 & Hits Community Break Box #3: 1996 Fleer Baseball Hobby

Hey, I made it before the end of the day. With such a long video upload and more scans than the previous two combined, I wasn’t sure. Honestly, today’s box was the impetus for the entire break. Diehard followers may remember that I busted open a box of 1997 Fleer way back in the day. [...]

’96 & Hits Community Break Box #2: 1996 Finest Series 2

Look at that, I actually have been able to post boxes on consecutive days! I’m not 100% sure I’ll have enough time to get all the scans and sorting done for the 1996 Fleer box tomorrow, so that may end up showing its face on Thursday, but I’ll do my best.

If you missed it, [...]

’96 & Hits Community Break Box #1: 1996 Finest Series 1

Let the break begin! I know I’m really getting started about a week later than I initially anticipated. Also, thanks to work, I’m getting started later in the day than I anticipated. Still, I said I’d have the first box posted on Monday and, well…. close enough!

Today is all about the top box

Community Break: Three 1996 Baseball Boxes & 20 Hits! Now Open!

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything card related, so what better way to jump back into things than with a good old fashioned group break.

This has been in the works for a while. I bought these boxes months and months ago. I think it’s finally time to share the wealth and bust [...]

Upper Deck Community Break Box #8: 2004 Upper Deck Sweet Spot

This is it. The end of an era. Or at least a group break.

Before we get into it, I’ll let you all know that I’ll be working on packaging and shipping out the cards this week. It can be something of an involved process, but you can be assured I pack things well. I’ll [...]

Upper Deck Community Break Box #7: 2007 Upper Deck Elements

What’s the next box on our list? Elements, my dear break watchers.

This is why I’m not a professional writer.

This is how mini boxes should be done

It’s worth mentioning each and every time, all of these boxes are courtesy of our good friends and Community Break Sponsor: BASEBALL CARD EXCHANGE

And [...]

Upper Deck Community Break Box #6: 2006 Upper Deck First Pitch

We’re getting near the end of the line. If you’re getting worried about your card count, here’s another choice designed to boost your numbers a little bit. There won’t be any crazy surprises, unless we hit one of those elusive autographs, but it will have plenty of inserts and cards you probably didn’t already have.

Upper Deck Community Break Box #5: 2004 UD Legends Timeless Teams

For every Community Break, I try to find one product that’s full of legends or Hall of Famers. It’s a way to fill out the under performing pre-expansion teams that people don’t like to claim and give people a chance to get some cool cards of players they don’t see a whole lot.

Will [...]
