Our Group Breaks are an affordable way to collect Sports Cards for a fraction of the cost of buying a case/box.
Our site makes it very simple to find your favorite spot or team(s) and purchase them.
You will receive all cards from your team (Autos, Mem, Base, Inserts) unless otherwise noted on the particular break page.
What will happen is that you find the group break you are interested in.
Once added to cart you can shop for more breaks or checkout.
You will then get a receipt by email.
(Q) Where and when is the break?
A) Breaking Mad Collectables breaks are always live! Its an event! The live stream is at facebook.com/breakingmadcollectables.
(Q) What happens if I don’t get a card?
A.) That is a very good question and one we get alot. Most of our breaks have base cards so you will get all those shipped to you. Each break will say what it is in description
(Q) Why are teams all priced differently?
A.) In a PYT (pick your team) style break some teams are more desirable than others based on what players are on the checklist.BM has done all the research ahead of time to price teams out. Teams with the best selling players tend to be higher. Less desirable teams doesn’t necessarily mean you wont get a huge hit. We have several people that like to pick up the last five teams and sometimes they walk out with the best value and hit.
(Q) Do you guys keep any teams?
A.) No. We look at this as a service we are providing. We want to be completely transparent. By owning team(s) we feel we would sacrifice that transparency. The less desirable teams will go on sale so keep your eye on the site. The best way to find out when new breaks get posted is to join our group page on facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/CardKings/
Styles of Breaks
(PYT) Team Break – Simple Pick your Team and you get all cards from your team. Prices vary per team
Random Break – All prices are same and your purchase entitles you to one randomized team. Teams are randomized live using random.org
Draft Style This one is fun! We random all names (purchases) and then on our forum one by one everyone picks there favorite team till its done
Hit Style Blast as well! Every spot purchased guarantees you a hit. We will do it all live. Once box is opened we will random the hits with the purchasers.
Please notice these in the style of each group break.
Dual or Triples with multiple teams – if we pull a card similar to the one below.
We will use random.org live to determine its owner. To avoid the random generator you will have to own 66% or more of the card. In the case of the card below you would have to have two of the teams on the card (ie panthers and broncos) to avoid going to the random. Strategy is key if you want to look at some pre checklist of the sets for some of the duals. When using the random generator your name will go into the random based on the number of spots you purchased. So lets say the in the case of the card below. Ralph bought the Panthers, Niners, Saints and Falcons (he gets his name in the generator 4 times) Tim bought the Broncos and Rams (he gets his name in 2 times) and Jose bought the Bills (he gets his name in 1 time) So 7 spots will go into the generator.
Results After 3 Randoms
So tim is the winner and as you can see there is a timestamp to promote authenticity! What this system does is give everyone a shot at the card but gives people incentive to pick up more teams. In the instance that a quad is pulled and you have two players on the card 50% your names will be doubled in the generator
After Break – Please allow 5-10 business days to recieve cards. We ship all your hits (jerseys, auto, low numbered) get put in penny sleeves, toploaders, and teambags. They (hits) then get shipped in bubble mailers first class. You will be notified via payment method with tracking number. Packages valued a little bit higher will be sent with signature confirmation required. In breaks where there are alot of base cards we will ship all the base cards out seperately in 100-200 count cardboard. So in large breaks you will receive hits first and base a week after. Sorting sometimes takes awhile!
