I can’t wait! I never would hope to not make money but the card collector in me is hoping that I don’t get any walk in haircuts during this first live box busters break so can watch it all! Is that bad? I just LoveCards, I can’t help it, LOL. Keep up the great work guys!

I can’t wait to see what you guy pull out of 2013 Topps Series One. I bought a retail box for 2013 Topps baseball last night after I got out of work and I also pulled the Dustin Padroia Fenway 100th years patch card which is going in my own PC collection since I am a huge Boston Redsox fan.

Are you guys having tech difficulties, or is the problem on my end? I’ve been checking every couple minutes since 12:30 (east) and it says that the feed will begin in a few minutes.

Reminder: You’ll have to go to the Google Hangout page to actually chat with us. That’s how you’ll be able to win a box … several up for grabs.

Also keep an eye on this thread … we should give away one here for sure.

Chris,
As noted on Twitter, I think it’s awesome you guys are looking into a Live format. I think it would be good for Ripping Retail as well. I’ve been watching you guys rip for a while now and you all give a great perspective of the cards as they are ripped. Thanks again for the hours of rips and the many more to come!

Chris- I spent 4 years working at Cleveland Stadium as a baseball concession manager putting my way through college. I have dozens-and dozens of Reggie stories that could/would certainly top your infamous exchange with his pleasant (?) personality as he played for the Orioles and Yankees back then.
