    I go with bomber breaks. Their a blast to watch, fast shipping and easy to work with.

    From mod: Please include a link or some way to contact them with replies.

  2. Justin 1 December, 2014 at 11:57

    I’ve used Layton Sports Cards and Steel City Collectibles.

    Both were very enjoyable, but Rich and AP at Layton are really fun to break with and they ship super fast!

  3. Mark 1 December, 2014 at 11:59

    Most often, I go with Top Notch Breaks ( and Firehand ( Rob and Jesse with Top Notch are fun breakers and are very friendly and accomodating. Chad at Firehand is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Never had any issues with either one and would recommend them both to anyone. Both can be seen on

  4. Nate 1 December, 2014 at 12:06

    I love breaking with Layton Sports Cards. I like to break there because Rich is a really fun breaker who really gets into each break. Hes always honest about products and is wiling to throw in some bonuses if you get a really bad beat. I also love the excitement of a BOOM! when one gets pulled. He has a very quick shipping time and is extremely reasonable to work with.
    Layton Sports Cards is located in North Cape May, NJ. Website: Twitter: @RichLayton42

  5. Dan Dundon 1 December, 2014 at 12:07

    For basketball breaks I go to Ken K. at

    I believe he is located in Portland Or. Twitter is K2SportsCards

    He has a good select of breaks including both current and past product.

  6. Randy Beck 1 December, 2014 at 12:08

    Josh Cade (CCX on @cardfatherx Fast, secure shipping and best prices around. Also does BGS submissions

  7. Dave Bradshaw - BigHitBreaks 1 December, 2014 at 12:11

    I try to check out many other breakers, but I mostly break with CCX (Josh Cade). He breaks on and can be found on Twitter @cardfatherx. Josh takes great care of your cards and can submit your hits to BGS. Make sure you check him out.

  8. Adam Davidson 1 December, 2014 at 12:16

    I ALWAYS break with my boys Coltstrong and Big Red on Guys are very professional and they totally Rock’N’Roll… Pay big bucks for big breaks!! Big Red Rocks while Coltstrong Rolls!!!!

  9. Jim 1 December, 2014 at 12:27

    Rich and AP at Layton Sports Cards are the best! Lowest prices, scheduled breaks, they’re always running great promotions, and they’re consistently pulling huge hits. Best in the business.

  10. ark_keeper 1 December, 2014 at 12:33

    I started breaking with

    Extremely well organized, broke 25 cases of Chrome in a single day. Just a couple guys going pack by pack, box by box! And they were creating recap videos and uploading them to youtube as they went, while still answering tweets and emails. They have their stuff down.

  11. Scott Springborg 1 December, 2014 at 12:34

    Firehands Sport Cards ( Chad Redfern) , Minera Sport Cards (Irving Minera), Bryan’s Sports Cards (viking 118480) and Blowout Cards (Houdini)

  12. Joseph slusin 1 December, 2014 at 12:38

    I use Downtownbreaks, Tyler is a vet in the hobby and knows what to do, fast shipping! His website and twitter handle is: and @downtownbreaks. His breaks are from 5 to 50 cases!

  13. David 1 December, 2014 at 12:49 @Firehand17 on Twitter Chad Redfern California … Firehand Sports Cards Gets 90% of my Business. Chad is a very honest and reliable guy. He is entertaining while he does his breaks and tries to be on a first name basis with his customers, even his non-regulars. He has high end breaks and he mixes in inexpensive breaks for breakers with a limited budget.. Some breaks come with” Hitless” packs or cards when available. All in all one of the top breakers if no the top breaker..

  14. Ian Patria 1 December, 2014 at 12:57

    I have done 99% of my online breaking with Chad Redfern at Firehand Cards. He is 100% trustworthy, always has the best products on hand and sells them for a great price. Shipping is fast and safe! Doesnt get any better than Chad!

  15. Ian 1 December, 2014 at 13:05

    I break with Chad from I’m a college student and while the chat room isn’t the nicest to my outspoken-ness, Chad is always the cheapest breaker. He breaks every product and does anything from low to high end. A lot of other breaks like LSC pictured above always charge an arm and a leg whereas Chad generally only charges slightly more than retail case cost (probably since he gets distributor prices). This is awesome and I always will break with Chad.

    To others especially LSC, stop charging insane markups. Its like highway robbery in my opinion.

  16. hiloguy 1 December, 2014 at 13:07

    I use Firehand Cards @ “”. Chad Redfern is a one of a kind breaker who never fails to entertain. It’s not a business to him but a service where he gives everyone the chance to obtain either a top tier premium card or simple something cool that a person would not be able to afford otherwise.

    Tons of variety and tons of excitement. I’ve seen countless amazing hits come out from his breaks and honestly I don’t really even look anywhere else. Buying spots in his breaks are easy and convenient and he let’s you know when YOUR break is about to start so you won’t miss anything. But if you do, they are uploaded to youTube as soon as possible once the break is over.

    Cards are promptly shipped and sometimes you even get a surprise if you didn’t get a hit! Truly an awesome guy and an asset to the group breaking community.

    Firehand Cards 10/10!

  17. Lenny C 1 December, 2014 at 13:08 – @RichLayton42 North Cape May NJ – Santa Clara CA – @FireHand17 Southern CA – @RIPKINGSRippin Downers Grove IL – chris j @Cardsinfinity Wilmington NC

  19. Joseph Reed 1 December, 2014 at 13:14

    All of my business goes to Chad Redfern of, located in Southern California and on Twitter @FireHand17. He does a wide variety of breaks across the 4 major sports and then some. With an emphasis on high-end products and uniquely designed mixers. All at the best prices I have found amongst group breakers. The main reason Firehandcards is my choice for group breaks is the unparalleled customer service. Including bonus boxes and prizes added to some breaks and weekly free giveaways for joining any breaks. And he will immediately resolve any issues from a break (missing hits from manufacturers) by adding additional boxes to the break if need be. Firehand cards is my first and only choice for group breaks!!!

  20. Reid E. 1 December, 2014 at 13:21

    Chad Redfern aka: Truth117 of Firehandcards is the #1 breaker in my opinion.

    I have never had a problem with Chad, timely and scheduled shipping, entertaining during breaks, lots of promos/giveaways, great mixers for all sports and is just a really good guy!!

  21. Tyler Clark 1 December, 2014 at 13:24

    FireHandCards aka Chad has been doing group breaks since the very beginning of the group break craze from his passion of collecting rather than his desire to make a couple bucks off of the industry. There’s no one I would rather join a break with. It’s always a good time and isn’t boring, much like many other breakers.

  22. john 1 December, 2014 at 13:27

    i use @theubb for the one of a kind drafting/trading system. bryan out in az is the man.

  23. Nick Torregrossa 1 December, 2014 at 13:29

    CardWorldTv is beyond the greatest as far as breakers go. From BigHitBreaks to CardCollectorX, they all show great hospitality towards members. It is great to interact with guys on CardworldTV as they all are in it for the hobby. Being a part of such an ironclad group makes me feel like a staple in the cardworld community.

  24. Jason Seat 1 December, 2014 at 13:31

    I have done breaks with a few breakers through out the years but the one I use more often and prefer to use is Chad FireHand Sports Cards. With great breaks,cheap prices,the most recent releases and being trust worthy is the reason I would rather go to FireHand over anybody. I have seen many big hit get pulled for some lucky collectors and I have also have had some big hits get pulled myself.

  25. Vic 1 December, 2014 at 13:32

    FireHand SportsCards based in Los Angeles @FireHand17 on Twitter is my preferred group breaker. Chad always has the newest product in stock and breaking on release day at prices that can’t be beat. His breaks are always fun to watch and focuses on his customers. He offers breaks for all budgets and great service/fast shipping.

  26. Joe Deez 1 December, 2014 at 13:34

    I break with mostly the top guy’s on Breakers LIke truth17 & cardsinfinity . I used to break with ccx until he got banned from the site then opened up on another site where they razz cards ,basically like gambling for kids & adults ” .

  27. John 1 December, 2014 at 13:36

    Fortunately, I don’t participate in group breaks anymore – I buy hobby – hobby is much more regulated in terms of what the end consumer pays for the product, whereas group breakers are free to charge whatever they want.

    However, I had broken with three different sites in the past:

    1. Minerasportscards –

    Irving used to work with firehandcards, but has recently spun off on his own. His breaks are incredibly slow to fill, but he has the best prices I’ve seen on the stuff he does sell – probably just to generate traffic at this point. He ships quickly, but unfortunately, only breaks on Monday’s, and generally runs a lot of low-end mixers.

    An issue with this breaker – he seemingly makes up the rules as he goes. Spell out the rules before hand, whatever they are, and people will respect your business more.

    2. Laytons –

    I decided to try out Rich’s breaks because he broke on the weekends, when Firehand, at the time, was not. His prices are more than fair (for random team style) and his website makes it easy to join (i.e. don’t have to be present in a room or purchase off eBay to participate).

    I tried about a dozen breaks over the course of a month or so, and unfortunately, two of first 4 shipments I was supposed to get from him ended up being lost. Not a good first impression. After contacting him with no ultimate resolution (he offered some token replacement cards), I haven’t returned.

    My biggest problem with this breaker – if you lose my cards (not because the post office lost them, which RARELY happens), your number one response should be – “Let me send you a refund for the break, my apologies.” Offering to replace someones cards with other stuff you have lying around is a cop out – you got cash from me, I expect cash back if you screwed up. Period. Otherwise, you look greedy.

    3. Firehand –

    Chad (thetruth17) is one of the most popular breakers there are, and his room consistently has well over 100 people in it any given night. He fills every break he puts in his easy-to-use store, sometimes 10 or more breaks in a single night. He ships twice a week (generally), and has the most variety of products being broken regularly. He’s also one of the best personalities in the business – he talks to his customers and provides engaging conversation.

    Lately, his prices do appear to have taken an uptick, compared to the prices we are used to getting from him – most participants in his breaks can probably guess why, but I don’t want to speculate. Unfortunately, that’s driven me out of his breaks. I always do the math on retail prices of the product in the break vs. the price being charged for all of the spots by the breaker. When I first started with Chad, it was about even. Over the past several months, that’s no longer the case – I’m seeing $1600 retail cases being broke for upwards $1900 in spot prices, which is unacceptable to me, so I’ve moved on.

  28. Kellen King 1 December, 2014 at 13:39

    Firehandcards aka Truth17 aka Chad Redfern is by far the best breaker in the business.

    1. Great personality
    2. Longevity and commitment
    3. Best prices in the business
    4. Mix of sports
    5. Great communication
    6. Stays on the cutting edge of the industry…SETS TRENDS
    7. I’ve never had one issue in over 4 years of breaking with him

  29. Dustin 1 December, 2014 at 13:41

    Truth17 (Chad Redfern) gets 99% of my business. He is without a doubt the best breaker on the internet. His knowledge of the industry far exceeds anyone else. His prices are always the lowest, he goes well beyond expectations to make sure all of his customers are happy and he is completely selfless. He knows the majority of the customers by their first name, he takes the time to answer any questions asked and genuinely loves the hobby. If you haven’t joined one of his breaks you are missing out.

  30. Buster Nutt 1 December, 2014 at 13:42

    I normally break on cardworld with bighitbreaks. He is a fun feller that has fun with his chatters. He also dabbles in fish so if you like fish he can talk for days about them!

    Yours in baseball cards,

  31. Clint Langman 1 December, 2014 at 13:43

    Obviously, and Josh Cade (CCX) are the best around. I’ve broken with a lot of breakers and he is by far the best. He does good breaks, pulls amazing cards, and is highly entertaining doing it. Great prices and fast shipping are a plus too!

  32. Hairpie 1 December, 2014 at 13:46

    The only people I trust are Josh from CCX Breaks and Boomo from Breakers. I have taken a break from the hobby for the past couple, months due to a family emergency, but wouldn’t hesitate to use either of those gentleman,honest guys.

  33. Miguel S 1 December, 2014 at 13:54

    I like Jonesy’s Sports cards. Eric always puts the customer first. KTauthentics is great. Bill is the same way. Late night too! Both can be found on breakers and cardworld with dual casts. Others I like are Bateson and CCX. I have tried many. These guys ship well and appreciate my business. I have tried many others, some good and some bad. But this is where I spend my money.

  34. Joseph Reed 1 December, 2014 at 14:00

    Sorry, but I think I’m missing in your instructions above where it said to use this comments page as open forum to bash people’s businesses based on you opinions of “fact”.

  35. Carter L 1 December, 2014 at 14:00

    BigHurt35 ( He’s entertaining to watch during the breaks and he’s very professional.

  36. Matt Safier 1 December, 2014 at 14:02

    I have been breaking with Rich Layton @richlayton42 for over a year now. He offers a wide variety of breaks for all sports and price ranges as well as a large assortment of single/personal boxes to choose from. His biz is top notch and bends over backwards to ensure that his customers are satisfied. He is friendly and engaging during the breaks. Just as with any break you can go “hitless” or have some major “booms” which is part of the risk/reward of breaking. When this does happen Rich makes sure that you don’t walk away empty handed, either sending a few hobby packs or somtimes even more for higher priced breaks.
    The Layton Sports Cards community/family of breakers are always willing to help out and answer any questions as well as have interesting conversations on all topics during breaks. I 100% recommend Layton Sports Cards for any online Breaking needs.

  37. Mike 1 December, 2014 at 14:07

    I have tried at least 15-20 different breakers and I keep coming back to Mojobreak ( or They have consistently the best selection, competitive prices, have great customer service, but most of all, they appreciate and take care of their customers.

    I would say that Chad at Firehand ( is my next favorite breaker simply because he’s been around a long time, has a loyal following, and doesn’t feel compelled to suck up to the manufacturers like some of these other breakers, too.

    I have done a lot of breaks with Layton Sports Cards (, LiveCaseBreak (, and CardfatherX and they have all lost my business either through poor customer service, slow shipping, or just their arrogance that grew exponentially with their success. What these breakers often forget is that they are offering the same products, on the same day, with similar pricing so what really differentiates them is customer service and personality. If they don’t take care of customers, aren’t making an effort to be different, or or rude/crude when breaking, they don’t deserve my business. There are a lot of better options out there (or I will just buy my own boxes).

  38. Lou 1 December, 2014 at 14:12

    I haven’t done group breaks in months but I always used . I had decent success and always enjoyed the breaks with Hawk

  39. Jason D 1 December, 2014 at 14:19

    I break almost exclusively with Chad @ firehandcards ( His live show is on (and u stream now).

    Prices are competitive, usually live 5 nights a week, quick shipping and response times to emails, and he keeps the room entertained. He also does a great job of keeping the hot products in stock.

  40. Amichai 1 December, 2014 at 14:26

    Being a longtime collector and participant in group breaks and probably having tried nearly everyone, i have managed to narrow it down to a limited shortlist.

    I have had my fair share of issues but this is not the place nore the time to specify any of them.

    BobbyBoxCutter (doesnt get much better than this)
    Mojobreak (love breaking with them, great variety of products, fast shipping, fair pricing)
    Kennfudd (fastest shipper on the planet and its not even close)
    KT Authentics (you gotta love Bill)
    CloutsnChara (for all your hockey needs)


  41. Mark 1 December, 2014 at 14:44

    When I break its always with aka @FinestBoxBreaks on twitter. Very trustworthy reliable breaker. He’s been my favorite for almost 2 years now.

  42. Snuffy_mojo 1 December, 2014 at 14:53

    The Best and well priced breaks are :

    Thruth17 — Bobbyboxcutter — pdubbs — vikings — Ants — Kt — K2 — Bighurt35 — Ripandlist — Nosauce

    The kind of sketchy breakers & not trusted & or force other products down your throat in order to break the ” good stuff “-ccx are :

    CCX @ cardworldtv — pffudd — jonseysports — Bighitsbreaks

    Now the one thing that is giving the breaking world a bad name is the Razzing of cards . Whick allow kids under 18 to gamble with grown men like Rednglodblooded & ccx & jonny5 & ect……
    Razzing = buy a spot in a average of 10 spots and after randomizing only the top spot wins the card 9 other lose .

  43. breesers 1 December, 2014 at 14:55

    Breaks on
    Twitter: @big_hurt35

    Very professional setup and by far the friendliest chat room. You always feel like you are welcome and a part of the group. A breaker who truly cares about his customers.

  44. Marissa 1 December, 2014 at 14:59

    With @crackinwax and @literalquirk because they have donated $1000+ to various deserving charities in need through their breaks :D

  45. Calvin Staggs 1 December, 2014 at 15:12

    For the past 6 years I have always broke with FireHand Sports Cards aka Truth17 @FireHand17, THE best breaker, THE best prices

  46. YellowBigTimeShima 1 December, 2014 at 15:23

    Only been in group breaks for over a year now. Love breaking with RK Collectibles, Bargain Box Breaks, Bomber Sports Cards & Collectibles and Card Collector X.

  47. David G 1 December, 2014 at 15:28

    Layton Sports Cards @richlayton42- Rich is friendly and you can tell he really has a passion for what he does. Also love when AP does breaks as well. Fast shipping

    @BomberBreaks- Absolute funniest guys in the business. Really makes every break enjoyable even if you get skunked.

    @Mojobreak_com- Great variety of breaks throughout the week with some big time breaks

    Firehand Cards @firehand17-Chad is great and I really like what he’s been doing lately. Esp with the random player Flawless breaks. Always has some of the lowest prices around

  48. Ben C 1 December, 2014 at 15:29

    I always break with BigHitBreaks from Ohio. Dave from BHB always breaks what the people want. If you want a product, whether it was released yesterday or twenty years ago, he’ll get it and sell spots at the best price possible. He does tons of giveaways through the BHB twitter, @BigHitBreaks, and during their breaks on CardWorldTV. The reason BHB is great is because Dave collects too, and the experience is so personal. BHB is not solely a business, it’s collectors trying to improve the hobby everyday. Their website is

  49. KyleB 1 December, 2014 at 15:31

    Break with the best during the day with CCX at, One of the most knowledgeable cats in the business. Best prices and great crowd.

    And Late night breaks with Gussy the Champion at #GussyforPRES!!!

  50. J_MikeCheck 1 December, 2014 at 15:35

    I have been breaking since 2010

    There are alot of good and bad breakers – My Top 5 in no order

    Kennfudd (Pffudd) Fastest Shipper @kennfudd – Very Professional
    Truth17 – Always Good
    CCX – Josh is a great dude @cardworldtv
    Bobbyboxcutta – on late nights –
    Eric at jonseys sports cards

    Jvirts and BigTime Hits are good as well

  51. whooop6969 1 December, 2014 at 15:39

    i use and bighitbreaks and joneyssportscards….all 3 are awesome guy’s…i wouldnt go no where else..if your looking for a break home…then come get you some…whooooop

  52. Matthew Rivers 1 December, 2014 at 15:41

    I randomly jump in Breaks with Finest Box Breaks and Friendly Box Breaks. They have always had great service.

  53. Duane F (Coketech) 1 December, 2014 at 15:41

    I started collecting again about a year ago, I tried a couple of breakers that did a great job of breaking and shipping but the personality just wasn’t there or the room was not accepting of a new customer. You would feel shunned by the other customers. Not Firehand Sports Cards his attitude towards collecting is contagious. He and his room makes everybody feel welcome. He has a great ever changing selection of very affordable breaks which is great for someone like myself that doesn’t have very deep pockets but loves collecting. He is my one and only breaker. I will not use anyone else. You can reach him on twitter @firehand17, YouTube FireHandCards or his website

  54. jim woods 1 December, 2014 at 15:49

    ccx on as the best service around and offers beckett grading which I send to monthly , hands down the best out there and always gives a good show

  55. D Loecher 1 December, 2014 at 15:51

    This is my list of top 5 breakers in my humble opinion. For various reasons.
    1- Laytonsportscards
    2- Firehandcards
    3- Cardsinfinity
    4- Bateson@Rippingwax
    5- Livecasebreak

  56. SleeveCa 1 December, 2014 at 15:52

    Have appreciated working with Ty at Seems to know what he’s talking about and tends to only focus on bigger quantity breaks, which appeal to me. Quick shipper and great communication. or @downtownbreaks

  57. Adam Brouwer 1 December, 2014 at 15:54

    I have been breaking for a few years and have been in breaks with many different breakers but I have to say without a doubt that CardCollectorX is the best of the best. Great pricing, great knowledge, handles cards with care, and fantastic shipping.


    I would also recommend BigHitBreaks and anyone else on CARDWORLDTV.COM. The entire community there is fantastic. Breakers are very good at breaking and very entertaining as well.

  58. BradE 1 December, 2014 at 16:05

    These are the Best Breakers in the Business!!

    Some newer guys that are MOVING ON UP….

    EBAY Guys:

  59. Ron Mexico 1 December, 2014 at 16:13

    I am new to this breaking stuff online but what I just noticed is by looking at all the comments and going to each link posted by the people. I have noticed that the comments for most of the good breakers are not even on right now and aren’t telling there people to go rush over here and post something good like ccx @ cardworld . That is pathetic to do that , I believe if they want to leave a comment they should do it because they want to.

    Also I see that have 90% more breakers on than any other site

  60. Jose Lucho Delgado The Cancer Troll 1 December, 2014 at 16:13

    snuffy_mojo is gem_mint1of1. That’s a real reputable source. Banned out of more rooms that anyone in the hobby

  61. brian burke 1 December, 2014 at 16:27

    Rich from Layton’s Sports Cards got me into the group breaks, so my loyalty immediately go to him and his staff. I like and trust the fact that he breaks live from his brick and mortar hobby shop and not from his mom’s basement. The prices are great and his break selection is awesome. Never had a problem with shipping or damaged cards. I have visited his shop a few times and love that the staff not only do what they do for a paycheck but they are all avid collectors as well. I have tried a few other breakers, some with no problems, others (which will remain nameless) I’d like to drive my truck through their living room, but I always go back to Layton & Co.

  62. Mike Price 1 December, 2014 at 16:27

    I have been participating in breaks for well over 2 years. My favorite is BigHurt35, very entertaining, great selection of product, fast and efficient shipping. I would highly recommend checking this one out, see you in the breaks.

  63. Brandon 1 December, 2014 at 16:27

    Ripandlist at Sports Cards 4 U ebay name jamman0409 has the best breaks. Quickest shipper in the breaking game as it’s always out the next day. All cards ship no matter what not many breakers like sorting all cards from their breaks to ship. Very entertaining makes the breaks fun. All around the best breaker on

  64. Tim 1 December, 2014 at 16:32

    Doug, Dan, Billy, and Shane at are the best hands down. Great prices and even better customer service. I have never had a complaint with anything and they do whatever is needed to keep your business and trust.

  65. KrisD 1 December, 2014 at 16:37

    Layton Sports Card …why ??? …Simply the BEST !!!
    Rich is a excellent breaker , get always my cards fast and i’m from Belgium .
    when i ask to get some cards graded he always help me !
    fantastic dude !

  66. Steve 1 December, 2014 at 16:42

    Bryan at Ultimate Box Breaks is my #1 breaker. You won’t find a more unique breaking experience anywhere. Literally, because he patented his software. I’ve tried hundreds of sites and have never seen one like this.
    You can:
    – Customized your team draft picks.
    – Watch the team random start automatically the moment a box sells out.
    – Trade teams in real-time.
    – Submit cards to Beckett (BGS) for grading. Pull-it & grade-it.

    Bryan keeps it lively and it’s a fun place to hang out and get into breaks. His customer service is outstanding and his shipping is 100% on point. There is also a very active forum for trading or selling cards. He offers Football, Basketball, and Baseball breaks.

    Twitter: @TheUBB

  67. Matt 1 December, 2014 at 16:43

    I rarely participate in group breaks, but the only breaker I’ve gone with multiple times is Brent Williams (who rarely conducts group breaks). Brent provides the best customer service in the industry with his auctions and his breaks are just as good. Due to their rarity, Brent’s breaks have a bit of an event feel to them and are just fun to watch. I’ve also been lucky enough to get my money’s worth every time, which I’m sure wouldn’t be the case if I did this more often.

    I use one site and one site only Topcutbreaks and brad he pulls monsters every week he is interactive with his customers top notch fast shipping great prices couldn’t ask for a better breaker

  69. Aaron 1 December, 2014 at 17:10

    I only go with Chad and Firehandcards. Knowledgeable, interacts well with customers, fast shipping, and tries to take care of those who have a rough break. Always multiple products across many sports and manufacturers and in my opinion can’t beat his prices. Have tried others while learning about breaking and simply no comparison.

  70. John 1 December, 2014 at 17:11

  71. John Storey 1 December, 2014 at 17:14

    I break mostly with Collector Revolution. @collectorrev always posts ther breaks on twitter to draw in new people to break, as well as to remind the regulars. They break out of Florida, A cool feature they have is that all movers of their website can join for free, you hits are uploaded for you automatically by the team at CR, where you can either list it for sale or just show them off to the community. If that’s not enough for people to buy in, every 10 breaks earns you a free one when you join their free break club! I honestly wish I found them sooner. The breakers are all fun and entertaining and the chat room has become a family of sorts that you can always count on being there 3-4 nights a week. I have to say I hVe been in a large number of breaks, but the hits always seem to find the CR community; from 1/1s, to HOF autos, to the best rookies in each sport!

  72. angrytad 1 December, 2014 at 17:15

    I break with bighurt35 my only go to breaker. Very fair with process and reasonable with any requests. Has a great room and atmosphere excellent place to break. Oh yeah and consistently pulls monster hits! go get in a break and see for yourself or just hang out

  73. Steve 1 December, 2014 at 17:26

    Bryan at Ultimate Box Breaks is my #1 breaker. You won’t find a more unique breaking experience anywhere. literally, because he patented his software. I’ve tried hundreds of sites and have never seen one like this.

    You can:
    – Customized your team draft picks.
    – Watch the team random start automatically the moment a box sells out.
    – Trade teams in real-time.
    – Submit cards to Beckett (BGS) for grading. Pull-it & grade-it.

    Bryan keeps it lively and it’s a fun place to hang out and get into breaks. His customer service is outstanding and his shipping is 100% on point. There is also a very active forum for trading or selling cards. He offers Football, Basketball, and Baseball breaks.

  75. Bradley Phillips 1 December, 2014 at 17:40

    I believe whole heartedly the top breaker is Top Cut Breaks. Mr. Brad Parvin, from Rockford, Illinois handles his business in a professional manner that can never be questioned. Providing fast, free shipping with only the best stuff to break!! Also, the best prices around! By far! He cares about his customers like they are his own kids. Top Cut Breaks also does a free weekly skunk break for any products you by into that you don’t hit! Now that is what taking care of your customers is about! Pretty sweet to see him pull $500 cards for people. For free! If you’ve never checked him out, your missing out. Give it a shot, check him out, and then thank me for your introduction to the most famous hands in the business! Top Cut Breaks is where it’s at. Home of the “MONSTERS”! is where you can get started at! @TopCutBreaks #topcutbreaks! ENJOY!!

  76. Alan C 1 December, 2014 at 17:49

    Have been doing Group Breaks for over a year now and i have narrowed down who i break with down to 3 main guys.

    Chad (FirehandCards) – I do most of my breaking with Firehandcards. He is on most days of the week and prices are the best you can find anywhere and rarely beaten. His room is full with 100+ people each time he is on and its no surprise he is the most subbed breaker on He is enteratining while he breaks, he covers all sports in his breaks, has boxes ranging from 2005-2014, ships ultra quick and safe. Has the best variety of breaks for everyone. Doesnt get much better than Firehand Cards. Best service in breaking.

    Anthony (BoxcutterSportsCards) – Although he is not on every day he does pop up 2-3times a week with great prices on his breaks. He is one of the most honest and friendly breakers on Covers all sports with the current products on the market. Great Service and goes above and beyond for his customers. Absolute gentleman.

    Ken (K2Sportscards) – Another great breaker on that comes on 2-3 times per week with mainly Baskteball and Football breaks at great prices. Friendly service, fast shipping and always helpful to his customers. Always a great range of baskteball breaks on offer.

    For the best prices, best service, fast shipping these are the breakers you should be checking out.
    Hands down the best and its not even close

  77. Luke Davidiuk 1 December, 2014 at 18:00

    The best group breakers are:
    1. Chad Redfern a.k.a. TheTruth17 @ FirehandCards
    2. Andy a.k.a. BobbyBoxcutter

    The best personal box/case breaker is:
    1. Chris at Cards Infinity

    There are a few others who also do a nice job. These are the 3 that I personally use the most. They are honest, hard-working, friendly, and fun to interact with. They all offer great prices as well.

  78. wally radicioni 1 December, 2014 at 18:01

    Ultimate box breaks is by far the best breaking site awesome live draft setup and Bryans customer service is above the rest. Consistent shipping. If you have not tryed this site you are missing out..

  79. Brad Pinkston 1 December, 2014 at 18:02


    I break with BigHitBreaks, Dave Bradshaw. This guy has never seen a prospect he hasn’t liked. Come to think of it, I don’t think he’s ever met a person he didn’t like and vice versa. Just a friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome. The first few breaks I participated in, I asked him if he changed the name to BigHitBreaks after the fact he was constantly pulling big hits. He said no, but truthfully he should change it to Arson Breaks, the guy just pulls fire. I actually heard he’s not allowed to break in California because it heightens the risk of a wildfire. True story.

  80. Nick 1 December, 2014 at 18:06

    Platinum Card Breaks, New York (watch online), is their website, @PlatCardBreaks is their twitter, I break with these guys for multiple reasons, they’re very friendly and accomodating, they always try their very best to please their customers. Nobody handles or ships cards better than them, always wearing gloves and cards go directly into top loaders, one touches available if wanted. Free shipping to Canada and the US, big deal for me because I live in Canada and collect football. Could go on and on, but just to sum it all up, NOBODY does it better than Platinum!!

  81. Jonathan 1 December, 2014 at 18:12

    Over the last few years I have enjoyed breaking with Chris @ Cards Infinity, Chad @ Fire Hand Sports Cards and Brad/Geoff @ CloutsnChara. The addition of the breakers pavilion at the NSCC this past year allowed me to meet new breakers such as Rich @ Layton Sports Cards and Scott @ Nasty Breaks. Love spending time in all of their rooms and jumping in the breaks that most interest me.

  82. Donnie Juice 1 December, 2014 at 18:15

    I use PlatinumCardBreaks, they are a great group of breakers with very outgoing personalities and they make breaking fun. They are on a streak of 1/1 cards that can not be topped, 13 1/1’s in 12 days.

  83. John W 1 December, 2014 at 18:23

    Chad Redfern (Firehand Cards) @Firehand17 Chads a Great guy and always has Great Prices.
    Bryan (@theubb) at the ultimateboxbreaks is also another top notch guy. And both guys are great with trying to get to know everyone by a first name basis.

  84. Samtollen 1 December, 2014 at 18:24

    Bateson@rippingwax is by far the best breaker around! I have broken with many different breakers and once I started breaking with Bateson I never left! He has the best prices and the best shipping department by far! He is also the most knowledgeable about the products he’s breaking compared to every other breaker I know! If anyone finds their way onto Batesons’ channel I assure you they will never go to another breaker again!

  85. gregg 1 December, 2014 at 18:26

    I only break with TopCutBreaks!!!! Brad has great customer service great prices and pulls Monster! !

  86. Nicholas L. 1 December, 2014 at 18:32

    I log in as xbignick. My twitter is @xxbignick and am xbignick on blowoutcards forum as well. Here’s my list of trusted breakers and good guys (sorry if I miss anyone). They all cast on but also may dual-stream with other sites like ustream. I don’t join breaks much these days but I’m a regular viewer and know the community pretty well.

    TheTruth17 (@FireHand17) – Chad commonly being #1 on is not unwarranted. Big Bang Zoom. He’s on most nights, offers a good variety of different styled breaks at good prices and breaks almost every product among the major sports. His room is like a live chat for the community. [Team Breaks: Pick your Team, Random]

    Houdini (@CheapFunBreaks) – Awesome guy that nowadays runs huge breaks of 50+ cases, but still does small ones as well almost every night. He’s also a moderator on blowoutcards forums so newcomers automatically should know he’s very trustworthy. Want your PC player in upcoming 2014 Bowman Draft? You can bid on him in a break and get 100 CASES WORTH OF CARDS! No other breaker offers this or comes close to it. He’s my go-to-guy for Game of Thrones breaks especially, so also offers that variety you want. [Forum Breaks: Huge Player breaks, team breaks, Non-Sports hit drafts, etc.]

    Ripandlist (@ripandlist) – Great guy, a friend, and breaker with great prices that ships the fastest of all. You can join a break Friday night and tracking will be uploaded within an hour and the package will in the mail by the next morning. Must be great friends with the people at the post office. Does smaller team or player breaks daily on eBay from multiple boxes to a case worth of product so he’s live multiple times a day. You can find all the major sport breaks here as well as products like Benchwarmers and other non-sports (I enjoyed his Sons of Anarchy character breaks). He also breaks live in his room (love his hit drafts!). Wooooo! [eBay team and player/character auctions, hit drafts]

    Cardsinfinity (@CardsInfinity) – When I started getting into the hobby he was one of the main guys I watched on youtube. Has every major sport in stock, other sports, and non-sports. If the product is released he likely has it the day of. Probably the best shop out there right now with competitive pricing because unlike others he has adjusted to the hobby environment and integrated online into his walk-in hobby shop. He’s on by noon eastern time most days so get that hobby shop feeling while hanging out in your pajamas. There’s a reason his shop is relevant in the days of big stores. [Buy your own personal box, team breaks]

    Bryan (@viking118480) – Great prices, cool guy, and a fun room. He’s usually on very late until even the morning sometimes. He’ll do the regular run-of-the-mill team breaks but make one up if you ask for it. The room is flexible like that. If you watch him he’ll randomly start opening packs for himself off camera. A true addictive collector that needs his own fix! You’ll usually find him wearing a hoodie and showing off his ginger facial hair. [Divisionals, Team Breaks, Pack Wars]

    NoSauce3 (@gvsportscards) – Usually on at night with breaks since he’s on Cali time. Team breaks, small divisionals, pack wars, whatever fills. Great room to kid around in. [Divisionals, Team Breaks, Pack Wars]

    Irving (@MustashMondays) – That mustache. Another member of the great breaking community with regulars. Lives in a fun neighborhood and sometimes you could hear the action while he’s live! [Team Breaks, Divisionals]

    KTAuthentics (@KTAuthentics) – Breaker that also specializes in authenticated memorabilia and other collectibles. Very professional and a calm attitude, so doesn’t really get involved in the drama that others might. Mostly a football guy I’d say (fellow Giants fan!) but breaks all the major sports. [Team Breaks: Pick Your Team, Random]

    There’s other guys like Bateson, Boomo, Pakerbob, and that crowd that other people may like or forget about past events with, but I don’t need the gimmicks like built-in giveaways or protective gloves. I prefer to stay with the trusted guys and fellow collectors.

  87. Jason S 1 December, 2014 at 18:44

    I started getting into breaking about 2 years ago. Did a couple sites and landed at . Was instantly hooked. Bryan has the easiest and most advance breaking site I have seen. It is amazing how much has changed in the 2 years that been breaking. Being able to see the randomization as soon as box sells out and then being able to trade teams even in other box’s is awesome.

  88. Brad Parvin 1 December, 2014 at 18:45

    I simply want to say thanks to the guys who mentioned my little business. http://WWW.TOPCUTBREAKS.COM is not thelargest by any means but to see me and my business talked so highly of us awesome. Just wanted to say thanks. I know from experience that all the others mentioned do a phenomenal job as well.

  89. Jay 1 December, 2014 at 18:49

    I use Nasty Breaks with Bateson from Ripping Wax. Prices are good breaks are always fun and Scott has a great customer service approach. Check him out.

  90. BRUNOSTARS aka Joshua 1 December, 2014 at 18:52

    I send my cards to get graded through Chad. I would rather send my cards to him. I live in Texas as well though I trust Chad and #TEAMFIREHANDCARDS as he is the one of the most trustworthy in the business. He make his breaks feel like we are open a box together and also make sure everyone gets cards regardless. THAT’S WHY THEY CALL HIM : TRUTH17 A.K.A. GODFATHER OF BREAKS….

  91. Mark Rutt 1 December, 2014 at 19:03

    I only use ultimate box breaks Bryan is the fairest and nicest breaker out there he has a great following of really great and friendly people and he offers great bounuses he is very careful with the card and offers cheap grading by bgs. I must say that if you haven’t tried this break site give it a whirl Bryan is great

  92. Debbie 1 December, 2014 at 19:13

    Crackin Wax (hailing from the Twin Cities, MN) is the absolute best. To begin, Topher has managed to raise a ton of money for charity through his breaks. He always gets breaker input regarding which charities are involved. He also goes out of his way to ensure that all of his breakers are satisfied with their haul- even if that means refunding some cash back for those skunked in a break. You will not get better customer service or heart from a card break, that’s for sure.
    Find Crackin Wax breaks at; @CrackinWax

  93. 3ricf 1 December, 2014 at 19:14

    I have used Many breakers over the years and I have found two that I have latched onto.

    Scott @ &
    Bill @ &

    Both of these breakers are personable, excellent breakers with a great following. It does not take a week to fill a break, and when the cases do break, they take GREAT CARE OF THE CARDS, and ship promptly.

    I recommend both.



  94. Parengroz 1 December, 2014 at 19:16

    My favorite and considers to be the best is K2sportscards @ handled by Ken.
    He is a great group breaker, trustworthy guy.
    He do basketball and football and sometimes other stuff.

  95. CoachFX 1 December, 2014 at 19:25

    I prefer to break with the following sites:
    Chad @ Firehand Cards
    Bateson @ Rippin’ Wax
    Chris @ CardsInfinity

    I have also used:

  96. Brian 1 December, 2014 at 19:30

    Totally recommended! I always do my Group break with George at I always end up getting the best price with George. I’ve dealt with other site but always end up with George. He is trustworthy and excellent top-notched service!

  97. Ryan F 1 December, 2014 at 19:42

    Best breakers around is Friendly Box Breaks! Always pull big hits! Only site I will use! They are very fair, fun, entertaining and always have great products!

  98. bmoney 1 December, 2014 at 19:44

    I use different breakers for different reasons

    1. (Bryan and AD) single box breaks w/ team drafting you cant find any where else.
    2. (Chad) mix box and case breaks at great prices.
    3. (Joey, AG, and others) single box breaks lowest prices I can find.
    4. (Bill) best case breaker

    All these guys earned my trust and business.

  99. dacardz 1 December, 2014 at 19:48

    friendly box breaks (fbb) is the best!!!!!! you get into a box or boxes for next to nothing and great cards are pulled. they pulled the babe ruth auto baseball from game changers baseball. i”ve been with them for 2 weeks and cant be happier whether i get something or not. they really are “friendly”. be sure to check them out at and at

  100. HUGH 1 December, 2014 at 19:56 @livegroupbreaks is my favorite site to break through.. they are also on Moonscards is #1….

  101. Brandon Parrott 1 December, 2014 at 19:57

    I’ve used a few, but Bateson Nasty Breaks is what I’ve been using the most. Great guy, great breaks, great entertainment. Gets very creative with breaks and promos.

  102. Jerrymyles (nzzar) 1 December, 2014 at 19:59

    When i get into a break i usually get my teams or random teams at Nate the coolest breaker on the web breaks his cards on and Check him out, he does a great job!

  103. Auscardguy 1 December, 2014 at 20:01

    My fav. breakers are:

    They all have a great mix of low end to high end breaks with either pick your team/player style as well as random team/player style breaks. They are also on most nights.

    Being an international customer, shipping costs are important, and these guys offer either free or affordable shipping. Not to mention their customer service is top notch, which is why i go back to these guys again and again.

  104. Robert Orfield 1 December, 2014 at 20:14

    Platinumcardbreaks is the best room out there. They treat your cards as if it was there own. They hit 1 of 1’s on a nightly basis. Everything they do is for us. So thankful there out there will nit use any one else.

  105. Rick B 1 December, 2014 at 20:16

    I use a couple different breakers

    1. Bateson at – cool promo with breaks and always a good room.
    2. Nate at – great prices and a good guy to talk the hobby with.

  106. Kyle Ryan 1 December, 2014 at 20:18

    Platinum card breaks on breakerstv is by far and away the best room to break cards in. They always have fun, they handle your cards as if they were their own. They change it up and keep things interesting!! Highly recommend!

  107. Steve Almaguer 1 December, 2014 at 20:20

    I participate in tons of box breaks from about 8 different breakers…but there is one that tops the list…and would top yours if you try the site:
    Phoenix, AZ

    Bryan’s daily breaks may take place in Arizona, but he will break live from The Nationals, The Rookie Premiere, & even be asked to host the 2014 National Kids Case Breaks with Panini.

    What sets UBB apart from the rest: Real-time drafts & real-time trading. UBB has the newest technology in the breaking industry…you are able to rank your teams on the website pre-draft, then once you get your teams, you are able to post for trade your drafted teams, see other posted teams available for trade, make offers, be sent offers, then accept/decline trades. It’s awesome!!!

    The cherry on top: bonuses, Bonuses, BONUSES!!! Bryan gives all his customers a chance to win in the free monthly box breaks. Bryan also is given awesome bonus cards & memorabilia from his UBB contacts. I should know, I won an autographed Cam Newton jersey signed at the Topps Rookie Premiere (books for $1000) for just a $30 break buy-in. Just recently, he gave away an auto’d Andrew Luck jersey…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! And I didn’t even mention his forum pages…it’s a great UBB community!

  108. zerocool18 1 December, 2014 at 20:24

    brayans breaks on
    billings montana

    low prices and late night breaking! cards are always sent out top loaded and team bagged abd also has a variety of breaks every night! perfect for that insomniac card collector!

  109. Tyler 1 December, 2014 at 20:26

    Not sure why they haven’t gotten much love yet, but Live Group Breaks are the best around. They make it very personable. If you want something broken, let Scott know and he will get it. Not only will he get the product but it is without a doubt the best price around. I’ve done breaks with a couple of the major sites like LCB and LSC and have enjoyed the experience, but you can get the same quality with a more personalized feel for a better price at LGB. <—check them out!

  110. Grant R 1 December, 2014 at 20:29

    I have only had the experience of breaking with one breaker, Rich at Layton Sports Cards, but I do watch a lot of videos online. Rich introduced me to case breaks after stopping into his store. Rich is extremely knowledgeable with all lines of products and offer his clients a variety of choices. Where some breakers break only one or two days a week, you can always find a variety of breaks almost everyday of the week. In my opinion, Layton Sports Cards is the only place to break. LSC now has Live From NY breaks with AP, which seem to always be an awesome time. I fully support LSC and wish them all the best!

  111. mnava18 1 December, 2014 at 20:29

    gvsports on

    location , los angeles
    twitter: @gvsportscards

    late night case breaks and almost always has the lowest prices on case break. pick you team breaks for all high end products really makes takes a load off the wallet!

  112. LakeSports 1 December, 2014 at 20:31

    I use bigtimehits (Mark D), Pffudd, and Jonesyssportscards (Eric) the most. They all have super fast shipping and make it a fun experience. Bigtimehits gives away a free spot in every single break he hosts and has the same pricing as everybody else so its good to be in a break where you know somebody isnt 100% about the money.

  113. Zach Thiel 1 December, 2014 at 20:43

    Houdini @ Blowout Cards all the way, a great host and he really cares about his customers. Top notch!!!

  114. Eric Urbanowski 1 December, 2014 at 20:43

    Scott Bateson at Ripping Wax is by far the best daily breaker on the planet. He has insane giveaways and really takes care of his customers. The company is run by David Gelfman, who is amazing at customer service. These two gentlemen are a true asset to the hobby and group-breaking.

  115. Josh Cade CardCollectorX 1 December, 2014 at 20:44

    Thanks for all the kind words! is growing rapidly thanks to all of you. I can be reached @cardfatherx on twitter to answer any of your questions. Thanks to Beckett for always working with us to grow the hobby. You can find Beckett Auctions casting live at least one a month doing breaks on as well. Again thanks for all the support for the site and myself!

  116. Scott Moon 1 December, 2014 at 20:48

    Hands down !! They have been around for over 3 years and have a Sports Card Forum as well. Live group chats through out the day and a great group of live breakers at night on Check them out !! 263

  117. wilkes7 1 December, 2014 at 21:02

    Bateson on is by far the best! Super entertaining with great product, fair deals and awesome giveaways. He also has top notch communication / customer service and quick shipping.

    For single boxes, afternoon snack breaks or when I’m just previewing a product – I go with the friendlybox breaks guys. They also have quick shipping and great customer service.

  118. Dk Vang 1 December, 2014 at 21:06

    I use UltimateBoxBreaks. I have been to a few sites and never really liked any of them until I tried UltimateBoxBreaks. They are the best breakers in the business. Lots of Breakers charge a grip for just 1 spot. UltimateBoxBreaks charges way lower than any of the sites I have gone to. To be the best, you have to beat the best and right now, UltimateBoxBreaks are the best.

  119. bumpkidd 1 December, 2014 at 21:17

    Wait, there are other breakers other than FIREHANDSPORTSCARDS!?? @FireHand17 Fun times, big laughs and huge hits. Always a good time whether I get a card or not. Chad has a nice variety of breaks for all sports and budgets.

  120. homarv13 1 December, 2014 at 21:18

    I will post these in the order of how much crap I give these breakers on a regular basis (it’s good crap, not bad crap – more crap equals more time spent giving them crap which means more money spent in their break rooms). They all manage to put up with my crap and deliver a great experience. I am also their favorite customer, even though they won’t admit it publicly.

    #1 – Scott – @batesrippingwax
    #2 – Chad – @firehand17
    #3 – Chris and Kevin – @bomberbreaks
    #4 – Andy – @bobbyboxcutter
    #5 – Ken – @K2sportscards

  121. Josh W 1 December, 2014 at 21:20

    Rich Layton and AP at Layton Sports Cards are THE BEST around. Always great products at great prices. They are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Always take care of their customers above and beyond the norm and always make sure you are satisfied they deserve all the recognition and kudos that come their way. Hope this post brings them a little extra business cause they deserve it.

  122. Bob J 1 December, 2014 at 21:24

    I always break with them. Cards protected and shipped immediately. Caring. does giveaways and throws in extra. Once saw a case come up short on autos from Topps, and he threw in an extra box to make up for it. Never seen it before, and will never forget it.

  123. Andrew 1 December, 2014 at 21:29

    Ultimate Box Breaks!! I’ve been all around the breaking community and I’ve yet to find a site that can do what they do.

    They pull MONSTERS every night! I can setup up preferences to customize my team draws, watch the random the instant a box sells, and trade teams with other people all with their unique software on the site. And if He pulls something I want graded, I click a couple of buttons and off it goes to Beckett for grading. I’ve spent $20-$30 and walked away with $500 cards. And they have a great forum where I can buy and sell cards. It’s just an all around professional, friendly, unique, easy to use site.

    And the Bonuses and Freebies are crazy! Just recently they either gave or are giving away an Autographed Tom Brady Full Size Helmet.

  124. MAZ1013 1 December, 2014 at 21:41

    Scott at NastyBreaks. He does a great job entertaining the room and has cool promos and giveaways. You just need to be in the room to win something. Communication is great and shipping is fast. Highly recommend.

  125. Jefferson 1 December, 2014 at 21:43

    I take almost all of my business to Chad my man aka Firehand-Truth17 on

    When I need my Bowman baseball fix, there is one name: RynemBreaks on Ebay and Rynemcasebreaks on

    Both excel at what they do. Great customer service and ship quick.

  126. Stephen Colella 1 December, 2014 at 21:45

    ULTIMATE BOX BREAKS is by far the best place to break. I have tried numerous other places and spent alot of money and have been treated poorly or merchandise has been haphazardly shipped and damaged. BRYAN at UBB is the best breaker hands down. Yes he may make money breaking but he genuinely enjoys getting the big hits for us. He has our best interest at heart not his own. I honestly feel like I am a part of a family on that site. We can all contact Bryan via email or cell phone night or day. UBB has the best way of picking teams as the draft is randomized by the state of the art system that also has real time drafting. Go check it out and you wil either ditch your current breaker or will add it to your rotation and visit with all of us regularly!

    I have participated in well over a hundred breaks in the past 12 months. I have had good and bad experiences, but these are my top 6 (in no particular order). All these have repeatedly provided entertaining breaks, great customer service and have proven to be honest at all times:

    1) BigHurt35
    2) RK Collectibles
    3) RynemCaseBreaks
    4) PlatinumCardBreaks
    5) Cardboard Hobby
    6) MajorLP09

  128. Fabricio 1 December, 2014 at 21:49

    My top guys are nastybreaks with scott bates and k2sportscards with Ken. They are cool. They are both on breakerstv. Bates is in Miami and Ken in Portland.

  129. Tom B 1 December, 2014 at 21:55

    Ryan Comstock @ Rynemcasebreaks is best around for baseball. Knows his stuff about the hobby and players. Also breaks a lot of product, so most nights he has a break going on. Also does football breaks.

    Others who I’ve seen are good are Bateson, Cards Infinity, Nordy22 & RCSPUR.

  130. CJ 1 December, 2014 at 22:17

    I have had a lot of luck with BCSCARDS on (rh-803 is their eBay name). They ship next day and take great care of my cards. They have been in the card business for a long time. Even though they aren’t always doing breaks, when they do, they do a great job!

  131. California JJ 1 December, 2014 at 22:19

    I have done breaks with multiple breakers. But nobody can compare to the SixEightCards. Nate is very personal and easy to get a hold of. I don’t know of any other breakers they will give out their cell phone number to their customers. I have broken multiple cases and plenty of boxes with him. Also done a lot of breaks as well. We have broken many of the cases that have revealed very high-end cards. Most notably Tiger Woods 1997 autographed scorecard. SixEightCards price point per break is on the low end. High in cards for low prices. Any card collectors dream. He also has extremely fast shipping and the cards are packed very well. I have never received damage cards from SixEightCards com. He is very knowledgeable of all sports cards I am a west coast guy who believes in my east coast breaker. Everyone should go to

    I would nominate Crackin’ Wax, he does some solid case breaks and had a fabulous multibox break to end the year. Another great aspect is that he typically donates a portion of the buy in cost to a deserving charity. Top notch.

    Rynemcasebreaks is who i do most of my breaking with. He breaks 90% Bowman baseball and mixes in some other topps products here and there. I like the fact that he knows the products, knows the prospects and the breaks are always entertaining. I always receive my stuff within two days of the break and its always handled properly. None better in the hobby for customer service…. For something different I also get in some box breaks with Friendly box Breaks. They handle a wide variety of product 1 box at a time plus licensed jerseys, helmets and baseballs are always being ripped. Good people and good environment.

  134. Bishop 2 December, 2014 at 00:04

    Here are my list of favorite breakers in no order

    1. @BryansBreaks – cool late night breaker with good prices
    2. @firehand17 – fun room with good prices
    3. @JaspysHobbyLand – cool family of collectors with great prices
    4. @PlatCardBreaks – not a huge fan of the gloves but they are fun to watch.

  135. Robert W (rwilson78) 2 December, 2014 at 00:31

    ive been doing breaks for little over 2 years now, and the breakers that i enjoy breaking with are as follows:

    Ktauthentics, Bill is a great laid back dude with great knowledge of the hobby and sports in general, breaks and hobby boxes are always reasonable in price, and the room is always laid back, shipping is always timely and spot on.

    BigHitBreaks, Dave B is a great dude to break with, from single box breaks to case breaks, daves always spot on with pricing, and not to mention the room is always fun and filled with sports talk, shipping is fast and on point.

    BoxBreakingBuzz, Josh is a fun dude to break with and breaks are always fun and reasonable in prices, sports talk is a frequent in joshes room, shipping is always spot on.

  136. James 2 December, 2014 at 00:47

    KTA Breaks by far is a cut above the rest. He is very courteous breaker that always puts the customer first and always has the best break prices. His shipping is fast and packaged well. He should be everyones go to breaker. His BGS/PSA Services are immaculate. I like the fact that he is Military Friendly and always hooks up the military guys and he sends care packages for guys deployed over seas!!

  137. Jon 2 December, 2014 at 04:13

    I only break with Firehandcards (, @FireHand17) – Chad’s very knowledgeable and reliable, and there’s always some great banter.

    His prices are cheap, he gives loads of free stuff away and he ships internationally with no fuss.

    He’s basically my LCS. :)

  138. Rich 2 December, 2014 at 07:52

    Most of my breaks are with @crackinwax as the charity angle is a Big plus and @crackinwax his wife are fun to chat with and listen too during the breaks.

  139. Randy aka treasurehound 2 December, 2014 at 07:55

    I have tried many breaks including all that are mentioned here by other people. But the all time best that I have ever experienced is Ultimate Box Breaks at
    Brian is extremely knowledgeable on the players and teams and continuously talks to the viewers as he breaks and comments on those that are on chat. Breaks are easy. You buy a spot or as many as you want in that break. Sometimes he has a buy one get one free so you can get two teams per spot you purchase. The names are randomized three times then the teams are randomized three time. Very fair to everybody. You have to go into your profile and select the teams in order that you would like drawn for that year. Also if there is a multi player on a card the winner gets the card of which ever team is on the left or upper side of the card. No random drawing for multi player cards as other breaks do. I like this. UBB breaks a lot of boxes every week and has a lot of special drawings as well. I have received numerous high dollar cards (over $500) and an auto full size jersey as well. All cards are shipped out Monday or Tuesday each week. Or you can have Brian hold the card and have it graded which is another feature that I like. All cards can be graded. Some special cards get free grading. Over all this is the most well structured break that I have ever been involved in. If you have never been to UBB go to their website and check them out and watch some of the videos of the past breaks which are posted immediately after each break.

  140. JoeHensel 2 December, 2014 at 08:16

    Here is a list of Breakers I have used in the last month all great, friendly and fast shipping.

    Sellers sports cards and breaks- Milwaukee Wisconsin @sellersbreaks

    RKcollectibles- Coralville, Iowa @rkcollectibles Ebay store

    Copperheadsports- Emory, Texas @copperheadsport

    Supremecardbreakers- Toronto @supremebreaks

    Friendlyboxbreaks- @friendlybreaks

  141. James Adams 2 December, 2014 at 08:18

    I’ve done my fair share of entering breaks over the past few years and there is only one breaker I would recommend to everyone. That is Ryan Comstock with Ryanmcasebreaks. He does primarily bowman baseball products, but also dabbles in some football and other sports. He is an all around class act. All his breaks are well run and organized. He takes care of his customers and wants them back. Almost every break has a free giveaway that ranges from extra autograph cards, balls or break credit. If Topps shorts autographs he will again take care of customers by randoming off cards from his own collection to all who participated in the break.
    Hits are immediately top loaded and he will give you an honest and knowledgable opinion if the card is bgs grade worthy.
    He knows his baseball product and routinely provides customers with prospect hot sheets and his opinions on up and coming prospects.
    Lastly, all cards are well protected and shipped out the next day following the break.

    In an industry where you put a lot of trust in who you break with, Ryan is the best out there. He isn’t just out there to make money, he is here for the customer.

  142. Lawrence 2 December, 2014 at 09:02

    I do about 20 breaks per week. It really comes down to what your personal preference is. Most breakers ship pretty fast. Most have a good selection. My biggest turn offs are breakers that open a product too slowly and emphasize every single base and insert card. It can get pretty ridiculous. The over the top fake dialog can be awful too. No need to sound like a car salesman when you open boxes. I find myself many times muting the audio and just watching the break. I have yet to find the perfect breaker for me, but here are my top four. I base it on available products, shipping, how long it takes for breaks to fill, dialog, and how fast they go through the break. My cons are in ()

    Finestboxbreaks-Fast Breaker, Dialog(Takes a while to fill)

    Friendlyboxbreaks-they have multiple breakers but I only break with AG cant handle the rest-Shipping FbbJenn best shipper in the business(Other breakers-Too much memorabilia breaks-From the time a break fills, it takes too long to finish)

    Bates-Super fast Shipping-Creative breaks-Fast Breaks(Better product selection-Needs to break on the weekends)

    Firehand-Products-Great products, Creative breaks(Breaks take a very long time from the time they fill to the time the break ends)

  143. Josh 2 December, 2014 at 09:24

    I am a casual breaker. Some nights I watch breaks just for fun and don’t make purchases. Best place to hang out and break is Finest Box Breaks. Great Prices. Good People. First site I ever did a box break with. Have tried a few others, but just not the same as Finest. Best in the Biz. Check him out @finestboxbreaks #Gussy4Prez

  144. kenneth clark 2 December, 2014 at 09:38

    I usually break with Chad (firehand sports cards), Mark (big time hits), Irving (minera sports cards) and Bill (kennfudd sports). All of these guys put together great breaks at really good prices. They are all a pleasure to deal with. But I’m more partial to breaking with Chad, aka “The truth 17”, because he, like myself, is a baseball guy. And everyone knows its hard to find good baseball breaks during football season.

  145. James 2 December, 2014 at 09:39

    I go with Mike Hodges at STLSportsCards. He breaks 3 times a week, with all 4 sports but a heavy hockey rotation. The breaks are the best prices on the net and he throws in all kinds of promos, contests and incentives. Makes for a fun night. Best part is, i never go more than a few days before my cards arrive as he ships every Monday.

  146. Jason Radmann 2 December, 2014 at 09:46

    I have done groups breaks with many different breakers but stick to two….
    I will go streaks with each depending on my luck ;oP

    Top Notch Breaks (
    STL Sports Cards (

    Both communities are great with a couple great and honest owners…. Can’t ask for much more from either!

  147. Tyler 2 December, 2014 at 09:47

    I’ve done my fair share of group breaks over the past few years. The place that I’ll choose over any others for breaks is STL Sports Cards (, @STLSportsCards, Kansas City, MO). Mike, the owner, is by far one of the best people I’ve met through sports cards. The room is an amazing atmosphere full of interactive conversations about anything from sports to food to the hobby itself. The shipping is fast, the prices are extremely fair, and it’s fun and inviting! It truly is one of the best card communities around, and you can tell that it’s all created through Mike’s passion and dedication to it.

  148. Sivert Pande-Rolfsen 2 December, 2014 at 09:49

    Living in Norway its hard to come across a local shop or a breaker of sportscards from america. I have been breaking with MySTLSportsCards and Michael Hodges for 3 years and counting. It’s a Great community and i just felt welcome my first time breaking there. They are Honest and everyone in the room is welcoming and genorus. The service is great for me when i know that shipping across the world is not cheap.
    I have used other break site but STLSportscard will always be my home and Collecting Family:)

    My first and only pick!

  149. Shani Pelled 2 December, 2014 at 10:01

    I’m new to group breaks, and back in the hobby after a 20+ year hiatus, all because of my 8 year old son, and it’s been an awesome bonding experience for us. We like a few guys in no particular order. MojoBreaks, Dan & Doug are gentlemen, and they do what they can to make it a fun experience for both my son and I. Great community as well, very first break we did we went hitless and someone else in the break who had the Steelers have my son one of his hits, as he knew that we are from Pittsburgh. It doesn’t get any better than that. I also have enjoyed breaking with STLSportsCards, Mike is a great guy and often provides great deals and even free giveaways. I won an one of his hits, as he knew that we are from Pittsburgh. It doesn’t get any better than that. I also have enjoyed breaking with STLSportsCards, Mike is a great guy and often provides great deals and even free giveaways. I won an 8×10 signed by kelvin Benjamin a few weeks ago. The community there is also one of the best ive experienced, th guys are all really into it and willing to help you get your PC in randoms. I received two Pittsburgh related hits from a guy for a very fair trade in the same night, football and hockey. Thanks Mark! Finally I’ll mention a fairly new entry to the market out of my home state, Sports Box Breaks. They’re still building a community but have great deals and a pretty good variety considering how new they are. Also very good at involving my kid and even gave him a card from his PC when we went hitless recently. I recognize there are a lot of options out there, and we all have different criteria that we are looking for. I encourage you to try these guys if the criteria that I mentioned is at all appealing to you.

  150. rdogsmgreen 2 December, 2014 at 10:31

    I usaully break with,,,, and These guys are very honest, knowledgeable, and great for the hobby!!

  151. Mike 2 December, 2014 at 10:49

    I have collected cards for over 20 years with and now been breaking cards just over 2 years. I have broke cards in some descent rooms, all descent service, but hands down best breaker on is Platinum Card Breaks. They are consistent with their service and hands down, keep it real. No one breaks with the enthusiasm, or professionalism these guys (girls) bring. They have by far the cheapest breaks – and give away product like I have NEVER seen(free give aways). They handle cards better than anyone I’ve ever broke with. Platinum is the only breaker that I’ve been with that wears gloves – top loads / cases cards INSTANTLY. Platinum Card Breaks is a room that is like a family to me and many other people that have been continuously going back. Cards ship within one business day. To be honest, not sure how they even do it! They take pride on how cards are handled from beginning to end and stand behind their services. I have witnessed Gem mint 10s that they have pulled (because of the care) that people in their room pulled. In my opinion, the BEST breaker on Breakers….I can speak from personal experience. If you haven’t checked them out – Definitely worth your time and money.

  152. MD 2 December, 2014 at 11:08

    I like alot of these people posting have broken with a few of these people my tops are Josh Cade with CCX , Tim and Larry with LiveCaseBreak, and Dave Bradshaw with BigHitBreaks

  153. ryan m 2 December, 2014 at 11:10

    Platinum cards breaks is one of the best breakers around, they handle your cards with the most amount of care possible. They sleeve top loader and even team bag hits, they put together insane mixers for cheap prices. You won’t find a better breaker out there, so come hang out at

  154. A'sFan7 2 December, 2014 at 11:15

    Hands down FIREHAND CARDS, Truth17. While I’ve seen many others break on the various channels over the past years, by far the most trustworthy, honest, and will go out of his way to make the experience fun & worth your time an effort. He will match anyone’s price in single personal box purchases, and his group break prices are the cheapest on the interwebs! One stop shop for all your needs. Knowledgeable about the sports he breaks, most online breakers can’t even tell you who players are that they pull during a break. Even when I am not in a break I feel like every box he opens is a personal box. I’ve joined breaks with Chad since 2008 and have never purchased from another room. Why? I know what I will be getting with Chad, I know my cards will be packed, shipped and cared for like they were his own. I know I will get an honest deal. Its’ also not just about the Box Breaks it’s about people. In chad’s room he makes you feel like people 1st and a valued customer. If I am going to spend hours in a break/chat room, I want the host to be able to hold a conversation with the room and not just show a screenshot hoping that something fills. He takes the time to learn more about each customer & their needs/wants. High end breaks, low end breaks the right product and vintage breaks. No other has done this with the success of Firehand Cards. Honorable Mention Chris at Cards Infinity, has a different business model, but is 100% on the same level as Chad.

  155. Rex 2 December, 2014 at 11:18

    I break with Mike from STLSportscards. Great breaks that focus around honesty and integrity. The next best option for me is Chad from Firehand breaks, due to great variety at the best prices. Can’t go wrong with either.

  156. Dustin 2 December, 2014 at 11:19

    I use STL Sports Cards. Michael Hodges is a top notch person. Honest and ships super fast. Always has the best product at the best prices. My favorite go to breaker.

  157. butch 2 December, 2014 at 11:25

    I really enjoy platinum,dave,and meg are like family.they run many breaks all day long and into the wee hours of the morning.they trat your cards with will never get a finger print on any card from them.they are the only breakers that give away a nitely prize of $25.00 and $100.00 every Friday night.all done by random.they are from long island new York.shipping is fast and free.check them out at you enjoy great company and friendly people than this is who you need to break with.everyone is welcome to be in the platinum card family.great breakers.

  158. Erik 2 December, 2014 at 11:42

    I started breaking with Cardsmiths breaks and really enjoyed it, Unfortunately he had to retire from breaking due to family issues. as far as i know. So then i was aware of breakers tv and scrolled and scrolled and found some breakers i really enjoy! First is Platinum Card Breaks, these guys and Gal wear gloves and give your card a second to hit air and they are automatically put in top loaders! Your Cards are always mint when you receive them! G, Megz and Dave do a very amazing job.. the room is always fun and hey you cant beat giveaways every night! Also like to give a shout out to Layton Sports Cards who i have done high end stuff with also does a wonderful job! Without these breakers i would definitely not be back in this hobby!

  159. Jon Parker 2 December, 2014 at 11:50

    mystlsportscards gives fast shipping and knowledge of the product. I was out of breaks for awhile but stumbled onto this gem. It’s a good community to be a part of.

  160. Josh Fleming 2 December, 2014 at 11:52

    RipandList is one of the best breakers I have encountered. They tend to always stay up on breaks with the new cards, offer breaks of full cases or large amounts of hobby boxes, break the same night shortly after eBay listings end, ship out fast, and are really friendly. I have tried quite a few breaks and I frequent these guys.

  161. Michael Num 2 December, 2014 at 11:58

    I break with for over a year now. It is a great community growing everyday. He is a excellent breaker very honest and prices are excellent.

  162. Rene Bardel 2 December, 2014 at 12:01

    Platinum card breaks definitely takes the best care of the cards. Just watch any of their videos, they ensure a fingerprint will never touch your card. They also triple sleeve, top load, and package the cards. I watched them pull 11 different 1/1 cards in the past two weeks! They also do the best giveaways out of anyone!

  163. Emma K 2 December, 2014 at 12:14

    Chuck and Matt from Breakaway Sports Cards are always my first choice. Not only do they have a great selection of breaks and great prices, they are also great guys. I’ve never had any issues with them and know that I can always trust them. I highly recommend them to any hockey fan.

  164. Stewart 2 December, 2014 at 12:14

    I have been involved in many group breaks, but the best, time and time again, is On-time breaks, specials, great products, quick and secure shipping and most importantly, very honest.

  165. KeithM 2 December, 2014 at 12:15

    I’ve pretty much done breaks with everyone out there. The best I’ve broken with are Josh Cade (CCX on @cardfatherx, Mike Hodges from MySTLSportsCards, and Bateson at Josh and Bateson break everything under the sun and so does Mike. If you are looking for a great hockey break Mike is your guy.

  166. Allen Pennington 2 December, 2014 at 12:15

    I break with Bryan does a great job with shipping and is good with communication. His site is hosted on ustream and has a live chat with the break. One thing that makes his site unique is that he sets up a team preference with a draft for position. After a random draft order is assigned, teams are then assigned based upon the top team available from your preferences. He breaks football and recently expanded to basketball and baseball. Bryan handles all the premium product as well as other miscellaneous lower end breaks. Breaks typically occur at 10 PM EST. Days of the week vary but multiple breaks occur each week.

  167. Charles Wampler 2 December, 2014 at 12:20

    I enjoy breaking with CCX @, however, I also break with Mikes Stadium Sports, Denver, CO. I used to break on breakers, but the continuos Ads popping up distract greatly from any enjoyment I might have had. Josh is a great guy and genuinely tries to make if fun for everyone! I ripped a case with him recently and it by all standards was terrible and was a buyback product. Josh sent me a DeMarco Murray Auto’d picture since the case was so terrible. While I don’t expect that every time things like this keep me coming back and spending my money with him. Great Guy!

  168. Jonathan 2 December, 2014 at 12:36

    I always break on they have the best prices and a lot of giveaways. Plus no matter if you get a hit or not, you will always receive something. They are very fair and the host Derrick is a kick he comes up with these funny Phrases Like “Narsty” for a nasty hit, and he likes to give the players nicknames Like “Senior Escobar” for Gavin Escobar from the Cowboys. It just makes it for a one of a kind experience that sets him and his site apart from all the rest.

  169. Justin R. 2 December, 2014 at 13:06

    I always break with Bateson @ RippingWax. He knows Baseball, football & basketball inside and out. No one pulls more hits than Bates. Its not even close.

  170. Angelsfan07 2 December, 2014 at 13:07

    Jaspy’s Hobbyland! Super fun breaks, good prices and great customer service. I’ve watched a lot of breakers but these are the only guys that I buy from!

  171. Jason 2 December, 2014 at 13:07

    I have done group breaks with many different breakers over the past year. I now break exclusively with ONEOFONEBOXBREAKS. Derrick “Heavy D” is by far the best. Very professional, usually the lowest prices around and he cares about his customers sincerely. He always over packages your cards and never skimps on plastic when it comes to protecting your precious hits. He is also very entertaining and broadcasts on various media. He monitors live chat feeds and will respond to requests or just plain old friendly chatter on the fly. He also gives packs or various other gifts for those that don’t receive a hit. Shipping is always free and fast. Live breaks are always on time and he always has the newest stuff breaking on release day. Try it out and you will not be disappointed.

  172. Scott Nobles 2 December, 2014 at 13:20

    I break with Chuck and Matt at Breakaway Sports Cards

    Hamilton, ON
    Twitter: @breakaway_sc

    Their desire to be the best hockey breakers really shows in their innovative break styles and commitment to their customers. There is always a good amount of chat both sports and non-sports related. Their contests and giveaways are always amazing (giving away a case of The Cup this month). Lastly their prices are the best around for both group breaks and boxes.

    I can’t speak highly enough of how the guys at Breakaway have treated me over the last few years. If they do not make the top 10, let alone the top 50 it will be a real shame.

    Heavy D is one of the best breakers around. His prices are unbeatable, great customer service and fast shipping. oneofoneboxbreaks has amazing giveaways and promotions, You always have chances to win extremely nice items. He always has a nice selection of breaks up all the time. Release day breaks, older products and some mixers. He pulls monsters on a regular basis and is not shy and putting nice cards in one touches, for free!

  174. Ken Northrup 2 December, 2014 at 13:25

    I most often use Breakaway in Hamilton Ont, these guys are quick & professional and most of all trustworthy and top top it off there local, I have the option of having my cards shipped to me or I can pick up my stack if I’m in the area.

  175. Cody 2 December, 2014 at 13:26

    One of one box breaks is the best around! Done many breaks with lots of different breakers and Derrick at one of one is really great. Lots of giveaways and very professional!!

  176. David 2 December, 2014 at 14:08

    I break with thebreakking, friendly box breaks, and ripandlist. They all have great service, and fast shipping.

  177. Chris Small 2 December, 2014 at 14:24

    Matt and Chuck at Breakaway are the best. Two brothers who treat the break customers as good as their retail store customers. I have hit my best cards from their breaks.

  178. Bill 2 December, 2014 at 14:46

    I’ve either been in or watched a break from 100’s of breakers. They all say they’re the best, best prices, best monster hits, best service, best shipping, etc. There is no “Best” and there never will be. It’s all personal preference. Everyone breaks the same products, everyone pulls monster hits, ships in a reasonable amount of time, and will answer your emails. Some have differentiated themselves from others, a few think they have but are delusional. The one’s that I prefer are the breakers who care about collecting and the hobby and are not just out to make a buck. But generally it’s the breaker himself that will keep me coming back. The personality, the enthusiasm, the non-monotone voice, the knowledge of sports, all play a factor. Again, it’s all personal preference but everyone mentioned here should be included in this article. A lot of good people here work hard to create a fun breaking experience.

  179. Coty Duran 2 December, 2014 at 14:51

    I always break with K2 Breaks. or also known as K2sportscards. Ken is the man that does these breaks, and he is very professional and does mostly the kind of breaks that I like. He always takes input from his customers and tries to break what we want, not whatever he wants to break. Always great deals and one of the cheapest breakers there are. His prices were always better so I tried him and then because of the way he ships and how quick he is I stayed, and now I am one of his regulars.

    I also want to note that I have used The Breakking, and Layton Sports Cards.
    Both of those are very good as well.

  180. Marty K. aka Refone 2 December, 2014 at 14:52

    Michael Hodges who owns this business is truly a unique individual. He is a very caring, kind, patient person who not only offers the best breaks in the business but treats all of his blog community as family.
    Mike puts people up, feeds them , takes them to ball games and all that for being on his blog and showing up to The National or Toronto Expo.
    I have been part of his community for now four years, I have tried many others but again, none can come close to showing a human side to this business rather than just a business side.
    If you want to find a great business man, who does incredible breaks, gives back to his community and treats you like your family, then see Michael Hodges. I promise you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you Mike and Mel!! You both are the BEST!!!!

    I have used lots of breakers, and can recommend without hesitation RipKings, Jaspyshobbyland, MajorLP09, and CloutsNChara, but most of my business goes to the group break hosts at – houdini, nordy22 (who is guzman_15 on ebay), SportCardBuffet, dthimesch, matt4486, hester72598, RedSmitty03, TOMBB25, and a bunch more I can’t remember at the moment.

    Every breaker is in it to make money. Blowout’s break model eliminates the risk to the breaker, allowing them to work with a lower profit margin on each break. The fact the break is connected to a large message board community also allows for regular, easy, and protected deals between people in the break.

    And since houdini is running a 50-case Chrome FB break while holding a player auction for a 100-case Bowman Draft BB break while he is dealing with a very ill child, I’ll ask everyone to please take a minute and join the bone marrow registry.

    The only place to break Hockey online is with Out of the Box Breaks.
    The breakers are honest, solid guys and their shipping is top notch. If you are breaking cards online and especially hockey, there is no one better than Out of the Box

  183. Pine Tar Sports Cards 2 December, 2014 at 15:21

    IF I break, it is with CCX on cardworldtv, GREAT breaks…fair prices and a VERY FAIR person……Josh often gives out free spots or cards if someone is having a bad day, Good times…all day long! Even BigMoney can see that THIS is the place to be!

  184. The One 2 December, 2014 at 15:29

    1. Firehandcards, chad is one of the biggest, best, and longest running breakers on the web. 100% Legit

    2. Irving77, one of the nicest breakers and most fun to join

    3. Viking118480, bryan satisfies all the late night fiends. fun place to hang out and break and have a laugh

    4. Bobbyboxcutter, consistently offering great breaks

    5. K2Sportscards, Great guy to break basketball with, always has good deals

    6. KTAuthentics

    7. NoSauce3

  185. Jason 2 December, 2014 at 15:31

    Bateson@Ripping Wax is my go to guy. Funny guy, ships like a beast and gives away crazy stuff.

  186. Mike 2 December, 2014 at 15:44

    I have been breaking for a while now. And I’ve been on both sides of the camera. Who someone chooses to break with is about personal preference, product offered and your own budget.
    I have two breakers who I use before I seek anyone else out. They are Derrick ‘Heavy D’ Stevens at one of one box and Rich Layton of Layton Sports Cards. In all my experience these two guys are the best around.
    Derrick has great prices and you can tell how much he enjoys being involved in the hobby. If you’ve ever been in one of his breaks he expresses just how much he appreciates us all joining him for some great ripping action.
    Rich is my man. He is all business and extremly professional. It doesn’t hurt that he pulled my all time greatest hit. Andrew Luck RPA /5 from 2012 NT.
    Find Derrick at @oneofoneboxbreaks on twitter
    Rich is plastered all over this thread!

    I also wanted to shout out the Rippingwax team. Guys are great people and offer great experience for there customers.

  187. Mike Janeway 2 December, 2014 at 15:44

    I break at They are the best break site I have came across. They scan any of your hit into their site. You also get a free entry after every 10 purchases. The chat room is a great place to hang out and chat with people. They have became great friends.

  188. Simon Janssen 2 December, 2014 at 16:00

    I break on a fairly regular basis and I always use Breakaway sports cards in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Very honest guys that take real good care of the cards as they are opening them!! Really honest and loyal guys to deal with and when they ship the cards to you they are ALWAYS protected well!!

    Thanks Matt and Chuck for a great breaking experience in the last year!!

  189. Nick Simonelli 2 December, 2014 at 16:06

    It’s not just the Breaker.. It’s about the overall experience. STL Brings a Community of collectors together. Always Honest. Always recorded for 100% Protection on any questioned Hits. Super Easy & FAST Shipping. All Sports. All The Time!

  190. James 2 December, 2014 at 16:09

    The boys at Breakaway Sports Cards in Hamilton, ON ( have always been great to me. I’ve been breaking with them for almost 3 years now and they never disappoint! Great guys, great breaks and they always have the best giveaways. If you want to bust hockey give these guys a shot.

  191. Aaron Antonello 2 December, 2014 at 16:13

    STLsportscards !! Have done breaks with many other breakers over the year but the one I feel has done the most for the hobby is Michael Hodges of STLsportscards he has built a community that is incredible and brings the true spirit of the hobby to the net. Over the years I have built many friendships with people that I have never met we don’t just break boxes and cases we have fun and get to know each other while sharing an awesome hobby. That’s the thing about breaks it’s not always about the hits you get it’s also about getting to know people you probably never would have by just going to a local card shop. I hope everyone drops by STLsportscards and see what breaks are all about.. Keep up the great work Michael !! And hope to meet more of the people posting here in the room soon..

  192. Chris 2 December, 2014 at 16:35

    My STL Sports Cards!!

    Nothing but the best breaks, best prices, best community and Mike is just and awesome guy to deal with and always in this for the love of the hobby!

  193. Jordan 2 December, 2014 at 16:50

    Jaspy’s Hobbyland are fun and exciting breakers with great prices. @JaspysHobbyLand and on Breakers.TV/Jaspy – They care about the collecting side more than a lot of breakers I have dealt with!

  194. Jack 2 December, 2014 at 17:17

    STLsportscards !! Have done breaks with many other breakers and enjoy the way Mike does them the best. Shipping is quick and I enjoy random team breaks better than other and Mike always has some of these available

  195. logan c 2 December, 2014 at 17:21

    I use for about a year now and i would not go anywhere else. They break Tues-Sun at least 15 breaks a week if not 20 and more. they break what is popular and what they listen to what you want and make it happen. At any given night they will have 30-60 people watching on ustream if not more on popular nights with popular breaks and over 316,500 ustrem views. also is very cheap they do not EVER price gouge.One thing you will find at a HUGE number of returning cutomers and also has biggest customer satisfaction. for example if the a box does not have the right amout of hits or is just not to their liking they will pull one right off the shelf for free and rip another one and still send you what was in the first one. They have a discount on your next break for going hitless witch no one does. They are at the Top of the card community for a reason. was also in a recent Beckett magizine talking about Rich Layton at Also working for Layton is Andrew Phillps or “AP” he breaks in NYC on the nights Rich is off. And he will make sure you have a good time no matter what ive seen it time in and time out. is a true industry Leader that that is always at the top of their game and that is why I and I highly recommend them to everyone who breaks or is thinking about getting in to case breaks.

  196. TripleCrown24 2 December, 2014 at 17:42

    Two guys truly stand out to me. They don’t have the reputation of the most famous guys, but you won’t be disappointed with the service you receive from either man.

    Ozlander79 – – one of the coolest dudes you’ll meet. He’s a no-nonsense Panthers that tells it as it is while still respecting every person who comes in his room. He’ll text you any information you need about the breaks or what teams you have. Oz is known for being a master with Inception Football, but often asks for suggestions from the room, taking his customer’s opinions into deep consideration and valuing their opinions. I would trust this guy to watch my house while away.

    P_Doubles – – You’ll be hard-pressed to find a funnier man on Breakers. Always with a smile on his face, this might be the most positive individual you’ll ever meet. He greets all of customers in the room and thanks every participant multiple times to show his gratitude for your business. If he could go hitless and pull everyone a sick PC card, he would. Whether it’s breaking boxes or chilling out and chatting in the room, you’re bound to have a positive experience with this man.

  197. peter l 2 December, 2014 at 17:43

    Chuck and Matt of Breakaway are the best breakers out there for HOCKEY. Honest and straight forward dudes. There breaks are a social event just not all about cards its just as much fun to hang out watch and chat. Love all the giveaways and free bonus swag!

  198. Adam Norcross 2 December, 2014 at 17:59

    The GREATEST breakers on the web. Chuck is always a pleasure to deal with and his breaks always go smoothly. I occasionally buy into other company breaks but will I ALWAYS get into these guys breaks as often as possible. These guys are ACES in my book! DONT BELIEVE THEN CHECK THEM OUT FOR YOURSELF.

  199. ron mcdonald 2 December, 2014 at 18:00

    i can honestly say PLATINUMCARDBREAKS.COM out of NEW YORK is the best i have ever broke with,
    they take care of every card from base all the way to booklets.
    not many breakers will ship everything FOR FREE!!!!! AND CANADA!! as i said these guys take care of their clients. penny sleeves top loaders mags etc….and they also wear gloves through out breaks so noting on cards!! they can go right Beckett to get graded. very few do that. plus shipping is fast and topnotch packaging.
    i have broke with many folks will not go anywhere else.

  200. George 2 December, 2014 at 18:01

    Scott Bateson pulls some nasty cards! Thanks for always being enjoyable and fair.

  201. Finn P 2 December, 2014 at 18:20

    Firehand is “hands down” the best breaker in the business. I have tried MANY MANY breakers. Chad is consistent and has the best break prices. He cares about his customers as most do NOT. They care only about how much money they are making off the break. Chad has compassion towards the hobby and he is my #1 choice and the only place i go to break these days.

  202. Douglas Cox 2 December, 2014 at 18:23

    I use Rynembreaks out of Des Moines Iowa, you can find him on Facebook and Ebay. Honest and fair with giveaways! My second choice is Ripandlist @ sportscards 4U in Bismarck North Dakota. You cant go wrong with these two breakers.22

  203. brian williams 2 December, 2014 at 18:41

    one of one box breaks is the best and only breaker I deal with. I have broke with a lot of breakers and he is in every way top notch quality. personality, fairness in price, fairness in his rules, and you can tell he truly enjoys breaking for us!! go heavy d!!!

  204. Jeremy 2 December, 2014 at 18:44 has the cheapest priced and the best cards pulled online. Have tried a lot of sites and they are over priced and shady people. check this one out.

  205. j 2 December, 2014 at 18:46

    ultimateboxbreaks is by far the best site. live drafts live trades and bgs grading. All for a great price.

  206. Kelly 2 December, 2014 at 18:52

    I break with Out of the Box, best breakers on the web. There shipping, customer service and just the guys’s breaking are the best online. It is more like a community , and they make you feel like family. Best Breaker channel Out of the Box

  207. Michael Brooks 2 December, 2014 at 18:55

    Truth17(chad Redfern) and Pfudd(Bill Schaeffer) are my 2 favorites on Breakers TV. They quality, affordable breaks and great service. Hobby couldn’t ask for 2 better guys.

  208. Steven 2 December, 2014 at 18:59

    For your Hockey breaks, Out Of The Box is the Best!
    For purchasing boxes, Cards Infinity is the best
    For any other sports the best is Firehand.

    I have also done breaks with Bateson, Friendly, CnC, Danz and others and all but MySTLsportsbreaks have been a pleasant experience.

  209. Ragin RAGEN 2 December, 2014 at 19:05

    I have Cancer and have a hard time with most breakers but Heavy D at has helped me more then you could ever know. When I can’t get out and load up the old PayPal card he just puts me in the breaks and says Pay me when you can… Or just puts me in and lets me know that its on him. That is a good Breaker… He enjoys it as much as you do when you hit a Nasty card. I have been on all of the for mentioned break sites. Please! Oneofoneboxbreaks is by far the best!!!

  210. Trong Nguyen 2 December, 2014 at 19:09

    I break with platinum they are very professional, energetic, and great people. They take very good care of your cards. They package them nice also. You can go wrong with these people.

  211. GMAN19 2 December, 2014 at 19:33



  212. Don Waterdawg 2 December, 2014 at 19:53

    I’ve been breaking with Matt and Chuck of Breakaway Sports Cards based in Hamilton Ontario ( for about three years. The guys are a class act with fun, fair, open and entertaining breaks. If hockey is your game… this is the place for you. The guys occasionally do other sports as well. The guys also give back to their community working with Ronald MacDonald House, toy drives for kids, and as well donating cards to the local children’s hospital…. A real class act that sets them apart from other breakers out there. Prices are always great and giveaways are the rule not the exception. Drop by give them a try you wont be disappointed. I almost forgot to mention that they are also active on breakers tv

  213. Paul Ringuette 2 December, 2014 at 19:56

    I always break with Platinum Card Breaks on Breakers.TV a class breaks and super fast shipping.


  214. rizzyt2 2 December, 2014 at 19:59

    I enjoy Bateson, Chad @ Firehand, Bill @ Pfudd, Mark @ Big Time, Boomo.

    For promos, Bateson hands down….I mean who else gives away an all expenses paid trip to Miami? Complete sickness

    For Variety, Chad @ Firehand.

    For freebies, Mark @ Big Time Hits. A free spot in every break

    For no nonsense breaking Pfudd & Boomo.

    I usually go for the brand and type of cards that I want.

    Honorable Mention>>>> Rynem, Antz, Jonsey, Major09 (ebay), Top Notch,

  215. Aaron N. 2 December, 2014 at 20:00

    I prefer the following breakers because of their personality and entertainment. All breakers need to have a niche phrase or fun personality to go with their offering of product.

    1. Firehand Sports card with Chad aka truth17
    2. P_Doubles with Pat
    3. Pffud with Bill
    4. Jvirts with JJ

  216. Jay (erica2408) 2 December, 2014 at 20:06

    I’ve done many breaks with several different sellers, many of whom are out of the business. By far the best, and the only ones I ever do now, are The Truth17’s (Chad R at firehands sportscards). I’ve been doing his breaks for several years and what sets him apart is his personality. Some may be faster or cheaper (most aren’t) but nobody can match the entertainment value of the breaks. Hell, Chad even introduced me to my now favorite beer. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and is the first person to call out BS from the industry (and there is plenty of it these days).

  217. jeff akers 2 December, 2014 at 20:21

    I’ve been doing “breaks” for about a year now and have tried several different sites and breakers. The ones i find myself going to first nowadays are Bateson and FriendlyBoxBreaks from and BigHitBreaks and CCX from These guys all seem to be very trustworthy and reliable.

  218. Miles 2 December, 2014 at 21:01

    I use Bateson, he is very entertaining and has some of the best pricing around!

  219. travis batten 2 December, 2014 at 21:10

    this is where its at for any card breakers. the room is insane and filled full of great people and they are the best on the planet. the site ran by g-man, mrs.megzs, and d they rock the breakers world with there down to earth card breaks and are very honest and caring people. they take great care of your cards and your well being in and out of the room. no games like some breakers that just want your money and dont care after that at platinumcards it one big family and i encourage you to come join in on the fun.

    The cards that come from platinum are always the best taken care of on earth. they were gloves at all times and are inserted into penny sleeves and top-loaders asap no games on your cards here always gems coming from platt so come get your grove and an you to will have a plattattack when you see the stuff they pull out of here.

  220. Zack W (TRUE) 2 December, 2014 at 21:21

    Best hands down is LiveCaseBreak!
    Tim and Larry have always been so kind to me, they always make me feel welcome, as they do to anyone who joins the room.

    They have had some of the best hits (Babe Ruth bat barrel, Jeter Knob, etc)

    Main base is in NY
    Secondary base is in FL
    They also bring in Arizona Diamondback reliever Brad Ziegler to break for them on occasion, I dont see any other breaker bringing in the pros

    Twitter: @LiveCaseBreak

  221. Warnertwins 2 December, 2014 at 21:41

    Bigtimehits which is ran by Mark is a great place to break. He always gives away a free spot in each break and he is always giving other stuff away as well.

  222. rdogsmgreen 2 December, 2014 at 21:42

    Jvirts, Bigtimehits, Irving77, Truth17, and CCX are my favorite breakers. They are very nice, honest, and great for the hobby in my opinion.

  223. Craig 2 December, 2014 at 21:43

    breakers I normally deal with are
    1. bbexpress2 on
    2. undefinedg20
    3. bigtimehits
    4. pfudd
    5. firehand sports cards
    They are all great guys to deal with.

  224. zerocool18 2 December, 2014 at 21:48

    friendlybox breaks has the best 1 box breaks on the internet!! they only charge me 5x more then the average breaker!! what savings!!!thank you!!!

  225. RipandFlipp 2 December, 2014 at 22:01

    Friendly Box Breaks? … Stick with box breakers… not what they are doing to people. Do your some home work before you jump in. Plenty to choose from that are great.

  226. Jimmy 2 December, 2014 at 22:11

    I just started doing Group Breaks this year, as a late 30’s collector i was skeptical at first but found two guys that I loved as personalities, and professionals in terms of how they treated the room, shipping, helping out with advice, etc. BigHurt35 and Bateson NastyBreaks. Good guys, definitely family friendly on their end. At any rate, just loved how they run their rooms and help out with PC’s with all folks not just me when i asked, or sometimes didnt even ask.

    Here is BigHurt’s site –
    and Here is Bates if yall want to give em a look –

    Like I said, they just fit my personality. Also really like Chris at Cards Infinity though he mostly does personal breaks. Anyway, best of luck, this is definitely the way the hobby seems to be heading these days!

  227. Shaun Lindsay 2 December, 2014 at 22:24

    Breakaway Sports Cards in Hamilton. Down to earth dudes who care about feedback from their breakers and provide a ton of freebies along the way. I only break with them.

  228. mark clabo 2 December, 2014 at 22:27

    i only use friendlyboxbreaks they have great prices there shipping department is the best there packages go out fast and they are always secured

  229. Dennis Williams 2 December, 2014 at 23:23

    I’ve been breaking with Breakaway (Hamilton, Ontario) for 6 months now. Very nice guys. Its nice to see a couple of brothers working together doing something they both love. Landed some massive cards with these guys and won a couple of boxes recently. Best around for hockey breaks. I recommend checking them out if you’re into hockey:

    They’re giving away a case of The Cup this month. I mean come on! Just awesome.

  230. Josh 2 December, 2014 at 23:30

    Ultimate Box Breaks is the best breaking site by a longshot! Bryan is a stand up, honest guy and keeps the breaks very entertaining. The website is the best in the biz by far with LIVE drafts, trades, and LIVE breaks with instant messaging! It is truly one of a kind. There have been a lot of people with MASSIVE hits there. I would never break anywhere else!

    If you haven’t participated in a break here you owe it to yourself to check it out!!

    Host- Michael Hodges
    Kansas City, MO
    Twitter: @STLSportsCards

    Most honest
    Most knowledgeable
    Most experience
    Most innovative
    Most fun
    Most inclusive community
    Highly competitive prices
    Free stuff given out often
    Unbeatable shipping standards (to everywhere)

    Mike is BY FAR THE BEST breaker I have ever used. Mike is just a great guy who loves collecting and loves people. He started breaking because there was a huge need for a transparent, honest, inclusive community in the world of box breaking. No one comes to STLSportsCards and leaves for something else. That says a lot. Mike has built much more than a business, we are truly like family, and that is special. Mike is always, and I mean 24-7 always, trying to think of ways to make the experience more fun for us. Trace back almost any game variation that is used in breaking today, it probably came from Mike’s brain, but he is humble about it. He is definitely the leading innovator in the industry today. Mike is doing everything the right way. He takes care of his customers. But the #1 reason I will never use anyone else, mike is the most honest, genuine breaker in the industry today.

    Thanks Mike and Melissa for all you do! You two are truly the best of the best.

  232. James Pierce 3 December, 2014 at 02:21

    When I first wanted to try breaking I had multiple bad experiences that almost turned me away from it until i met Oz at – he was extremely helpful and personable and honestly taught me so much that i wouldnt be breaking today without. I’ve stuck with Oz ever since whenever i get the itch to see some awesome new cards, and he’s certainly pulled me some MONSTERS! Overall when it comes to professionalism and knowledge of the hobby (unlike so many i’ve heard butcher all the player names) hes the guy to go to.

  233. StungOne7 3 December, 2014 at 07:52

    Heavy D at One of One Box Breaks is awesome. Way too many over-priced breakers out there, this guy makes it fun, keeps the prices the lowest u can find, and cares about the rapport with his customers.
    Lots of contestest and free giveaways- the best around.

  234. Matthew Warner 3 December, 2014 at 08:30

    I break with Platinum Card Breaks! They are hands down the best breakers out there. Free giveaways, top notch handling and great people! There is no way you can beat the atmosphere at Platinum Card Breaks!

    Hockey breaks with Breakaway are fun if nothing else. Chuck and Matt are personable, honest and offer the highest level of customer service.
    Special note: I’m a Scott Laughton collector, but no matter how many times I ask or how nice I ask, they will NOT pull me an auto/shield 1/1 of his… but at least they’re always nice about it. :)

  236. browning51 3 December, 2014 at 09:50

    I break pretty much exclusively with ultimate box breaks. The drafting system is the best part, no other site has it. Tons of free give aways, my collection has become ridiculous due to Bryan and his system. Do yourself a favor and go to, set your draft preferences and grab a spot. The only question is, why are you not breaking with UBB.

  237. Greg S 3 December, 2014 at 11:22

    I exclusively use Breakaway Sports Cards in Hamilton, ON.
    and @breakaway_sc on twitter

    I use them because they love what they do, have great giveaways and are overall knowledgeable and friendly to deal with. Never felt ripped off with them and had some great pulls from their breaks, which are all done with the utmost integrity. They are a big hockey breaker, which is what I collect.

  238. brad8671 3 December, 2014 at 11:32

    CCX over at is the main guy i like breaking with. Good Prices, Great Atmosphere, and Very Trustworthy. Always a good time, if you havent broke with him you are missing out.

  239. Jestin Haugh 3 December, 2014 at 11:34

    I only use the following 2 breakers: – @RIPKINGSRippin Downers Grove IL – chris j @Cardsinfinity Wilmington NC

    These 2 are the best IMO, they are fun and very trustworthy.
    Rip Kings has great promos and tons of breaks each week. They sell teams and random spots via their website and also teams through ebay auction. You can always find something you want!
    Chris Justice has to be the fastest shipper around and has been doing this the longest! He also does a great end of the year giveaway that can’t be beat!

  240. Barnes622 3 December, 2014 at 13:50

    Ultimate Box Breaks is by far the best break site I have ever been apart of. He sells spots for reasonable prices. Breaks high end products. Gets many exclusive UBBproducts. Gives away more free things than you could imagine. I guarantee he will sell out product faster than any other site. Amazing community of people included in his forum always willing to help out with anything. The only site with drafting and trading of teams. Cards are shipped safer than they come from the factory. If you don’t believe me try his site one time and I guarantee you will not be sorry.

  241. Tommygolf85 3 December, 2014 at 15:32

    I usually break on with @Firehand17 on Twitter Chad Redfern, the Truth17 has been breaking longer than anybody I know of and is one of if not the best around. I also break with others on Pdoubles, Undefinedg20, pfudd, and Jvirts all are good breakers, I have never had a issue with any of them.

  242. Chuck 3 December, 2014 at 15:56

    Vikings841180-49359835798574837574957984 AKA Bryan at is the absolute funniest room to be in. He doesn’t care if you’re breaking or hanging out. Will talk to you as he would anyone else.
    You will catch him with a Vikings hoodie and a Twins hat. If he has that luscious ginger beard going on, you know you have found the right place.

  243. JD 3 December, 2014 at 16:38 is terrific, fun, great to watch with your kids, fast ship and extremely honest and fair.

  244. Bill9591 3 December, 2014 at 17:26

    The only two breakers I use(and will ever use) are Chris Justice (Cards Infinity) and Chad Redfern (FireHandCards) Here are my reasons:

    1. Ive been collecting for over 30 years but breaking online for only three.Both Chris and Chad were EXTREMELY patient/helpful to me when I first started. I didnt find that with other breakers when I first started. I felt at home and comfortable.

    2. Their prices are as low as anyone out there. Chad’s breaks, in my opinion, is geared more towards group breaks and the ‘packages’ he creates are always well thought out and sell out quickly. I find myself participating in more breaks that usual because his choices are so enticing. Chris always has great deals and my boxes (and sometimes cases) of cards are purchased and broken online thru Chris.

    3. They Ship their cards extremely fast and I never had a single problem receiving the wrong card, damaged card, or no card.

    4. They are extremely passionate with their craft and it shows in their breaks. Their passion gets me pumped and lowers my Checking account balance!

    Anyone not using Chris and/or Chad are crazy!

    I have seen Chad Breaking Cases and Boxes for a few years Now. I finally decided to Join. I’m not going to get into the Big Hits i have had in his Room, but its been a ton. Most 2 recents were a Tom Brady Flawless Green Patch #/5 and a National Treasures 1/1 Mario Lemieux Stick/Nameplate Booklet. Chad’s breaks are incredibly affordable and he does a tremendous Job. The 2 biggest things i look for in anyone who does sports cards breaks is Honesty and quality service. Chad goes above and beyond, he’s friendly and he sets the standard for breakers as far as i’m concerned. I’ve been in a lot of breaker’s rooms and i have to say most of them weren’t the greatest experience. When i entered Chad’s room, i felt at home right away, and knew from that moment on he would be getting all of my business. Keep up he good work Truth. You got my vote!

    Derrick @ oneofoneboxbreaks,

    Fair, enthusiastic, energetic, great prices, and lightning fast (secured) shipping !!!

    Highly recommended.

    this guy deserves recognition.

  247. Jason 3 December, 2014 at 18:31

    I break with Ozlander79, pulled me some sick and sweet PC cards from his breaks.

    Plus Wilson is a beast.

    Also break with Jvirts, has also pulled me some sick PC cards.

    These 2 are my favorites, both great.

  248. Robert Summers 3 December, 2014 at 18:34

    The best breaker on the PLANET! P_DOUBLES on!!!!! Patrick and his brother John are amazing trustworthy gents that always do a awesome trustful break. With everything top-loaded or one touch case with all HITS!

  249. Kevin aka DT 3 December, 2014 at 18:35

    The P_Doubles aka P Dubs is the best breaker hands down….He shakes it up every night and is an awesome room. Fast shipping and an awesome time no other place to go. #realtalk

  250. Andrew 3 December, 2014 at 18:37

    Breakaway Sports is who I use quite a bit. The guys are friendly can joke around and have good prices for breaks and boxes. They don’t just do the breaks but actually chat and have fun with the people hanging out.

    I have been participating in Online Breaks for about 1 year now. If your looking for the Best Spot Prices, Some Laughs, Fast Shipping, be sure to give Boomos Breaks a shot. Great guy that keeps you laughing. Also Boomo will purchase solid hits for at or near going rates on Ebay. Great feature that Im pretty sure most other Breakers do not offer. Always has the newest hottest products on release day as well. Give him a shot you won’t regret it.

  252. Cory aka bogey79 3 December, 2014 at 19:46

    I stumbled into group breaks over this past Summer, while browsing auction listings. Since that time I have been “hooked” by this new perspective of the hobby.

    I’ve broken in multiple rooms, but have settled into the rooms of Ozlander79 ( and P_Doubles (

    They feel like family, in that everyone-has-that-one-crazy-uncle-or-weird-cousin kind of way. You wanna be entertained with a never-ending giggle or some no-nonsense “real” talk about cards, sports, and everything else under the sun? Give these guys a shot!

    Both are hopeless fans of even more hopeless football teams. But I think that makes them appreciate the hobby even more!

    Trustworthy, honest, appreciative, reliable… 5 stars all the way

  253. Nathan 3 December, 2014 at 19:46

    I have broken with many hockey guys in the past, Breakaway is by far the most professional, honest, and fun people to break with I have found. Cards are shipped VERY securely and in a timely manner. Breaks happen almost every night, with different product and styles being broken to satisfy just about anyone. While Chuck’s appearance may scare small children, the rest of the break is top notch!

  254. David panopoulos 3 December, 2014 at 20:03

    I use Breakaway Sports Cards in Hamilton, ON.
    Chuck & Matt Durka
    and @breakaway_sc on twitter

    I use Breakaway because they are passionate, knowleagable, and they take pride in what they do. They have the best prices in hobby boxes and breaks (of high end to mid to low end to reach out to all collector levels) they put together some great giveaways and over the years i feel that our relationship has grown thru trust. They are always going out of the way to help me complete sets and or connect with others to help. They are the best hockey breakers out there, which is what I mostly collect and i exclusively only buy my hobby boxes from them.

  255. Chiefsrule2006 3 December, 2014 at 20:08

    I break with CCX and PFFUDD on Great guys and fun rooms, they make the Hobby fun!

  256. knelly83 3 December, 2014 at 20:16

    Been breakinthree yrs now, and ozlander is my go to guy, most down to earth and trustworthy breaker out there. Second will be jvirts and Bobby boxcutta. best guys in the business who do it for the hobby not the $

  257. Brandon 3 December, 2014 at 20:23

    When I do group breaks, it’s solely for Hockey, because that’s what I collect. I use STL Sports Cards pretty much exclusively. I like the way Mike does his breaks live and he’s pretty charismatic. It’s always a fun break, even if you don’t win there’s a lot of dialogue and comedy, just a bunch of people enjoying the break. I encourage everyone to check out stl sports cards breaks, he does other sports besides hockey as well. Everything is professionally handled and I’ve never had an issue.

  259. Dan 3 December, 2014 at 20:49

    Over the last year I’ve seen some monster hits pulled in Ozlander79’s room. Oz is an honest and dependable breaker. Fast shipping with every break is great.

    Go check Oz out. Hang out, chat, and see huge hits pulled. There’s only a couple of breakers that I would use and Oz is my go to guy! Plus you get to hang out with Wilson.

  260. Leghorn56 3 December, 2014 at 21:16

    Hands down BigHurt35! His breaks fill fast, he puts his videos up quickly, cards are received same week and he is a great guy to work with. I also have done a lot of business this past year with K2Sportscards, Firehand Cards and P_Doubles. All three are pros at what they do.

  261. James Co 3 December, 2014 at 22:21

    Breaker: Derrick S.
    Twitter: @oneofonebbreaks
    Location: California

    I have been involved in case breaks for almost 4 years and Derrick from is the absolute best. His customer service is above and beyond any that I have broke with and I have broke with quite a few over the years. He wants everyone to get a hit in his breaks. His enthusiasm and knowledge of the product is also top notch. He actually knows how to pronounce the players names, unlike so many others. You can tell that he truly loves being a breaker and satisfying his customers. He interacts with those in the chat room and gets to know his customers. He also does bad break bonuses that are usually better than some of the hits in the case. His shipping is extremely secure and quick. He offers consignments for hits pulled, so they can be put up as quick as possible. One of the things I love most about breaking with Derrick is the breaks he does for holidays and special occasions like Black Friday. He just did a Black Friday break & I absolutely killed it. He gave so many freebies away it was unbelievable. My packages are due to arrive tomorrow & I am super pumped. My best card, other than the Johnny Manziel 2014 Topps Prime level 5 auto quad patch RC, was the 2014 Topps Finest 1/1 Superfractor Allen Robinson RC I hit that was SICK SICK SICK! The Jaguar face was the patch! Check his Twitter site out for the picture. This does not even count the “free” full size auto helmet, 2 full size auto jerseys, 2 2014 Topps Finest hobby boxes and so much more that I received in the random drawing he did for buying spots in his Black Friday breaks. There are probably a thousand more things that I could say about breaking with Derrick, but you just have to check him out yourself, you will not be sorry.

  262. Jason K 3 December, 2014 at 22:35

    If I’m going to break individual boxes on a site I go with ultimate box breaks. Brian at UBB is a honest breaker with a great personality to go with it. He ships cards out right away and also offers BGS grading on site. There is live trading along with a live draft.

  263. acam1234 3 December, 2014 at 23:45 (@batesrippingwax) and the ripping wax crew are great on
    Bates always makes the breaks enjoyable and they have great prices with a variety of breaks.
    The promotions they run are unlike any other breakers out there. Gave away Flawless briefcase and a trip to South Beach and tons of break credit.
    If you aren’t breaking with him you should really check them out

  264. A 3 December, 2014 at 23:49 @richlayton42
    Rich is a great breaker. Has lots of different types of breaks available and has everything scheduled out in advance. Has been pulling me monster cards since I started with him.

  265. Paul Galletley 4 December, 2014 at 02:19

    Breakaway Sports Cards out of Hamilton, Ontario has been the BEST over the past couple of years – and I live in Arizona! Good pricing, a sharp web site, fast shipping and above all TRUSTWORTHY. Chuck and Matt Durka are brothers and co-owners of the shop:

    and be sure to check them out on Breakers TV several times a week!

  266. Alex G 4 December, 2014 at 03:45

    I have been breaking for a few years now, and I have a list of good, trustworthy breakes that I would recommend.

    Matt – BlowoutTV
    Chad – TheTruth17/Firehand
    Josh – CCX
    Irving – Minera Sports Cards
    Bill – KTAuthentics

    also need to mention a few others, NoSauce (GV Sportscards), Bateson, and Cards Infinity.

    There are many others, it is great to see how many good people are in this hobby right now. People with whom you can spend money and know that you can trust them with your breaks.

  267. John T. 4 December, 2014 at 03:53

    Forgot to add majorLP – the seals on his cases are always intact and the product is legit, it’s like someone pulled out the cards ahead of time and got them all shiny for us. One of the best breakers around, does eBay breaks mostly now.

    Some other guys……………/ all these guys are on sometimes

    A. Boomo – Though he and gelf can’t sell on eBay anymore because they were curt schilling, they’ve each gone their separate ways since. Boomo now breaks by himself if you don’t mind the parakeets flying around during breaks he’s topnotch. Love the freeze faces…hes single ladies
    B. pakerbob – Pulls some excellent diamond cards! Takes longer to sort cards (needs to do it standing up because of the knee problems) but cards get sent out eventually. Prices are good, you can take a full spot, half, or one third sometimes, he’s a packers fan just like me so i lik that
    C. Randy Smulliano’s friend – he owns a cardshop in like idaho. The first night he went live he set on fire, literally!! If you don’t like a product he’ll burn it for the price of the box or send it out to you. One time he forgot a redemptino at the bottom of the card but it wasnt on purpose. a lot of people stopped breaking with him after but im staying with him. one of the best price-wise, AND always entertaining (did a shirtless break once) but doesnt ship base (look up smulliano on youtube)

  268. Rich39 4 December, 2014 at 04:33

    My favorite breaker for hockey is Top Notch Breaks ( and TheTruth17 ( for football. These guys are my go-to breakers because aside from packaging your stuff very professionally, they are also very entertaining during and in between breaks. Their rooms are laid back and friendly, a lot of great back and forth chatter. It is also very easy to tell, these breakers are genuinely passionate about the hobby and enjoy interacting with their customers, which to me is very important and adds to the experience.

  269. Jake S 4 December, 2014 at 06:09

    After reading most of the comment is sounds like most people just have a personal preference with who the break with. Seems like ever Breaker listed is Trustworthy, Fast Shipper, Down to Earth, Fair, and has the Cheapest Prices in the world. Although I have only purchased spots from maybe 10 or so of the Breakers Listed. I have checked out many of the other breakers sites most charge 2 to 3 times the retail cost of a Hobby box and I wonder how do they ever get people to stay in there room? I would go into more detail about some of these guys screaming into a web cam like a used car salesman, but I am sure beckett would just delete my comment. My advice would be look around find the best deal especially if you are trying to make money flipping the cards from a break. Only makes cents pay the lowest price to get the cards, sell and maximize profit!!!!! Doesn’t take a PHD to figure that out.

  270. Levi Aka Ivandrago814 4 December, 2014 at 09:22

    A and N Sports Cards is my favorite and the Number 1 spot for UFC Breaks!
    Also like Dan’s Cards, Friendly Box Breaks, and Card’s Infinity!

  271. Andrew P 4 December, 2014 at 09:33

    Nick is one of the best dudes out there from aan sportscards. A shop owner and collector himself he loves the hobby. Very personable and guaranteed you will laugh in his room. Great prices and shipping. Break with others but nick is probably the top.

  272. Andrew P 4 December, 2014 at 10:07

    Nick at a and n sports cards is top notch. One of the best dudes in the hobby. Very personable and friendly. Doing giveaways all the time and always pulling heat. Does breaks from boxes all the way up to multi cases.

  273. Andrea 4 December, 2014 at 10:10

    Nick from a and n sportscards is awesome. Makes you laugh and makes you feel part of the group right away. Handles cards like a pro. And great price range of products. Use other breakers but prefer stopping in with nick

  274. Jeff 4 December, 2014 at 13:01

    i break with Mike Hodges at mystlsportscards. He is very honest and fair. I enjoy breaking with him because of the array of cards memorabilia he busts. Always interesting and keeps me intrigued.

  275. Mike Hood 4 December, 2014 at 20:28

    For me, the best Hockey Breakers out there are Chuck and Matt at Breakaway Sports Cards……

  276. Chris (Hortanokilli) 4 December, 2014 at 22:43

    I enjoy breaking and I have found a few who are really good guys. I really like Andy (, Chad (Truth 17 –, Bateson (, Paker Bob ( and on Ebay Breaks I like MajorLP09 ( They are all good guys, ship promptly, make you feel welcome and are honest. I enjoy spending time in all of their rooms and you can’t ask for more than that. Breaking is a great way to be able to get in on super expensive products and have a chance at a big hit.

  277. Kirk 5 December, 2014 at 08:52

    I only break with Crackin’ Wax out of Minneapolis. Fun guy (and gal, of course), enjoyable and affordable breaks. He also mixes in quite a few charity breaks, in which a portion of payments go to great organizations. Just a fun, fair, and personable breaker that I’ve really enjoyed getting to know over the past year or two. Other places really didn’t bring the personal touch that he brings. PLUS he has a skunk rule in which if you don’t get a hit, you get some $$$ back (which I’ve never had happen to me). More places should be like this-

    I have used several break sites, but only use one now. Ultimate Box Breaks (UBB) is the best. It’s the only site I have found that has customized draft picks and trading that leaves you plenty of time for trading, the breaks range from mid-end to high-end with very reasonable prices, cards are always shipped immediately with tracking numbers, the customers are all very friendly and supportive of each other (not yelling and cursing at each other like I have seen on other sites), and Bryan, who runs it all, has got to be one of the funniest and friendly breakers I have ever seen who loves to add bonuses like signed helmets and jerseys to a lot of the breaks. He is also super easy to contact and always responds quickly. Like I said, I have used a lot of break sites and now I only use one. The best,

  279. M J Nettle 5 December, 2014 at 10:51

    I break with Bryan at Ultimateboxbreaks (Twitter@TheUBB). From the above posts, its clear that there are plenty of breaker sites to choose from, many which offer similar services: fast shipping, bonuses, trustworthy, variety in cards, etc. But in addition to these expected services, the UBB offers the most technologically advanced site out there, allowing unique ways for customers to interact, trade, and chat. I love the live draft and trading options…you feel actively involved…and not just like a passive observer. It’s these features that separates this site from the breaker herd. The UBB offers a professional business image to this fast growing field. Personality wise he’s tops. No wonder Panini invites him to do special presentations at the National. His presentations with kids at the Cleveland National were standing room only! I’d strongly suggest breaker enthusiasts visit his site.

  280. Alex Oey 5 December, 2014 at 13:46

    I break with a variety of great breakers, but the one I always return to is Crackin’ Wax. Not only does he do a lot of charity work with his breaks, he also enjoyable to deal with. He ships fast and does his best to make everyone happy.

    i use @theubb for the one of a kind drafting/trading system. Bryan is a really nice guy and very knowledgeable. I always get my hits fast and well packaged. He also has very easy to use grading(beckett) where you can sumit your hits from ubb to get graded simple easy to use try this site you wont go any where else

  282. Fred Gervin 5 December, 2014 at 18:06

    I don’t get in too many anymore, not enought time. But CCX is very good. JVirts is also(and he is a Skins fan, HTTR). BH35 has some nice breaks too!

  283. John 5 December, 2014 at 19:34

    I’ve purchased breaks from Layton Sports Cards. B & M Sports Cards, MOJO Breaks ans
    All of these breakers are absolute fantastic, easy to deal with and all have skunk protection which is a plus.
    Note: no longer does group breaks.

  284. Lynne 5 December, 2014 at 19:55

    I started getting in breaks about a month ago, been with a few other breakers until I hit on Platinum cards They handle cards with care as if they were there own. They go out of their way to please. They have lots of giveaways & have fun in the room It keeps this girl coming back for more!!

  285. k.pappas 5 December, 2014 at 20:57

    I just got two difractor Yukon Darvish redemptions fromantic one case break.This site is hot and great fun.Like having a party with Dr.Dave General G and Major Meg. Lot of fun and great bunch of people in the breaks.every night is cool

  286. Mark DeBarge 5 December, 2014 at 21:33

    Top Shelf Breaks is a blast to break with! Super friendly and knowledgeable. You never go hitless, which is nice. I love that they have McFarlane figure breaks, which no one else does. Weekly Fantasy Football contests by using packs of cards. They truly have fun thinking outside the box. Great guys! Check them out!

  287. JD Moseley 5 December, 2014 at 21:41

    I’m new at breaking and Chris and Nate welcoming me right in. It’s awesome these guys interact with you and we have fun breaking cards. We have hit a 1/1 almost every break. Highly recommened for all new breakers to join and watch. come on in and try it out.

  288. Andrew Dempster 5 December, 2014 at 22:05

    I had never done a group break before and one day a friend told me about a website called, I went and checked it out and saw a guy with black gloves opening cards in a little preview box on the home page. I clicked on it and was blown away by the enthusiasm of the man they call “G”. He makes breaking cards so exciting and his wife Mrs Megz keeps everything very organized. My favorite part about there break site is that all your cards are directly top loaded or put in magnetic holder by a gloved hand and never touched by a human hand when they show up at your doorstep. Check them out they really go the extra mile for people and give great deals to new customers.

  289. Garth 5 December, 2014 at 22:09

    I break almost exclusively with Platinum Card Breaks. They always wear gloves when ripping and all hits go directly into sleeves, toploaders/one touches and bags. Shipping is fast and the cards are well protected, and a lot of times they throw extras in your package. Plus they always give away a ton of freebies during and between breaks. The room is a lot of fun just to hang out in whether you’re in the breaks or not.

  290. tony ragsdale 5 December, 2014 at 23:05

    I break with top shelf breaks!! simply put great guys that offer skunk protection, affordable breaks big hits a friendly atmosphere!!

  291. giantSmash 5 December, 2014 at 23:15

    Awesome group of breakers! I usually jump from breaker to breaker. But I find this group to be by far superior to the others. I take great pride in my cards, and they do that with them and handle them with respect. Thanks guys/gal if you’re reading this.. Great daily giveaways as well. #highlyrecommended

  292. Steve 6 December, 2014 at 08:58

    I break with top shelf breaks. Fast shipping, great promotions, great communication and no skunk policy. The guys are great.

  293. Gregorio Guindon 6 December, 2014 at 09:33

    I break with @TopShelfBreaks awesome atmosphere and all around great group of guys !!!

  294. Andrew 6 December, 2014 at 09:54

    I break with (@topshelfbreaks) they are great! They have awesome prices and do breaks that no one else is doing like fantasy drafting where fantasy football wins get you a draft hit based on your place week to week! They have good prices and they do a lot for their customers! They do a lot of giveaways and no one goes away from their breaks empty handed. If you don’t get a hit of your team goes without they will send you a hit anyway with their “skunk free” policy! They are awesome and they have really good stuff to break every week they have scheduled breaks so you know when you’ll be able to get into something cause it doesn’t vary week to week. They are awesome and I’m a regular customer of theirs because they always are fair with me! They hit the hype horn for big hits too! Breaks are always fun!! Best out there for sure

  295. RandyB 6 December, 2014 at 10:27

    I started breaking this year with Cardsmith breaks. Sam was awesome but doesn’t break anymore. Went to Layton – Rich (and AP) are awesome. Shipping never an issue. Very knowledgeable an fairly priced. But LSC does a lot of high end breaks which are just beyond my budget sometimes. Started using Top Shelf Breaks! Nate and Chris are awesome! They are new to the game and still learning but they have great affordable breaks, amazing giveaways, and really, who else does McFarlane breaks and weekly FF breaks? Give them a try!!

  296. Eric 6 December, 2014 at 11:11

    http://WWW.BREAKERS.TV/BCSCARDS is my favorite! They are always prompt and answer any questions you have almost immediately. They always ship next day and take great care of the cards. Each hit that is pulled is put in a protective case right away, so you know they are well taken care of. If you have not joined them, I would strongly suggest them!

  297. klete pappas 6 December, 2014 at 12:06

    Great people, great cards and great prices. I have received more great cards in the last two weeks than I have in the last decade of collecting cards. Make sure you check them out at

  298. pparkyy 6 December, 2014 at 12:17

    I have tried multiple breaking groups and TopShelfBreaks definitely takes the cake. Presentation is great and the breaks are well organized, and many of the normal participants have become friends and interact with each other both during and away from the breaks.

  299. Brad(A3xdaddy) 6 December, 2014 at 12:43

    I have been breaking with @ripkings #boooom for about 2 years. Great folks, they interact with the breakers really well and have great pulling luck. They know your teams and respond to any emails quickly. I just have fun! I have tried other sites and had some fun but I always stand by Ripkings

  300. Robert Cl 6 December, 2014 at 19:22

    They only people I break with are ! Heavy D is by far the most sincere and honest breaker out there! Every spot you buy gets you a card! No matter what! Who else does that?

    I used to break with him a ton but health conditions have limited me lately….hope to be back in the game soon. When I am, it will be with !

    I like to break with Layton Sports Cards and Rip Kings

    Layton Sports Cards
    Great breaker, been breaking with him almost from the beginning of his start in the business.
    Pricing is so-so for Team Style breaks
    Random style breaks are priced great though
    No skunk protection policy, you just get a hobby pack, needs a better skunk policy

    Rip Kings
    They have a good Skunk protection policy $5.00 credit if you skunk on a case break and good pricing

  302. David 7 December, 2014 at 09:21

    Chris & Nate @topshelfbreaks ( are very entertaining, the cards (or MacFarlanes) are perfectly packaged, and shipped extremely fast. What drew me to breaking with them is the “Skunk Protection” where you don’t go away empty handed & also the tired pricing. I like the fact that I can load up on spots for a discounted price.
    Check them out.

  303. Sean 7 December, 2014 at 13:18

    I love Top Shelf Breaks. When he found out I was a 49ers fan just like him. He sent me cards from his own PC and I wasn’t even a break at the time. How many other breakers would do that

  304. Kim 7 December, 2014 at 13:46

You have Freddie, Shim, Bazzi, Zamil and many others.It is like breaking with your friends even though you have never meet them. The prices are awesome and no one does a better job of taking care with how they ship their products than RK Collectibles.

  307. b0ss 8 December, 2014 at 07:44

    I use Chris with – he is, hands down, the best most reliable group breaker on the web. Lightning fast shipping too!

    I go with Erick at Big Texas Breaks for all my breaking needs. Always have a great time in his room, cracking jokes, great pricing and pulling those “Ebola” hits.

    Platinum card breaks is hands down the best breakers have ever come across. They take care of your cards as if they were your own cards. Everything from back to top loaders and one touches for high end. If there is any doubt just come check them out and you will never go back to any other room.

    Platinum Card Breaks is the place to be. They are great with their customers, and always keeps the fun going in their room. They do a TON of giveaways so nobody is ever shut out or leaves unhappy. Their website is: and you can register there to break with them. They cast on every day and night !! Great people do deal with, they protect your cards as if they were their own.

    I break with Platinum Card Breaks on They are the best in the business and treat their customers the best!

  315. BigCountry61 8 December, 2014 at 18:07

    Been on not long but found PlatinumCardBreakers just searching and immediately was hooked. They only look to make you happy and respect your cards right away. Great people to deal with and I will continue to do business with them. 100% recommended

    I am new to the group breaking game and when I stumbled upon I was hooked instantly. Between the charming banter of lead breaker Erick, the helpful, always prepared second-in-command Firmelows and the general hospitality of the BTB Crew, I knew I’d found a home. Erick breaks a few times a week, including multiple free breaks. You read that right, FREE BREAKS. No strings attached, no BS, just free cards and good company. Obviously, the paid breaks are the meat and potatoes of the site and democracy rules in Big Texas. You want to rip baseball? Just ask. You want a box of Chrome ripped live and shipped to you? Done. These guys are easy like Sunday morning. Did I mention the sick hits? We’re talking Ebola level pulls. Once the breaks are through, tracking is provided quickly and so are your cards. Erick has an obvious love for the hobby as well as people and it shines through the iSight camera on his MacBook. Whether you’re a seasoned vet or Johnny Clipboard in the group break game, check out Big Texas Breaks.

  317. Bryan K 8 December, 2014 at 18:33

    Platinum Card Breaks! These guys are the best! They have a great time in their room and everyone is welcome. The deals they offer are fantastic. Also, they handle your cards with care and have the best shipping I’ve seen out of any breaker!

  318. Mark Rutt 8 December, 2014 at 19:50

  319. Donnie Juice 8 December, 2014 at 20:13

    PlatniumCardBreaks are the BEST breakers in the business, they care for their customers, they care for the cards and the PULL SERIOUS HEAT!!!! 16 1/1’s in 17 days

  320. Kyle Ryan 8 December, 2014 at 20:14

    Platinum card breaks is hand the BEST breakers! They pull MONSTERS. I saw 12 1/1 in 2 weeks. They take great care of the cards and are extremely passionate about what they’re doing! Highly Recommened!

  321. Paul Finley 8 December, 2014 at 20:21

    The only breakers I use is Platinum Card Breaks. All the packs boxes, cases are opened with gloves on they treat your cards like they are theirs. Great Prices Prompt Shipping Simply the best in my opinion

  322. David r 8 December, 2014 at 23:33

    I just started going to platinum card breaks but they not on run awesome breaks but they respect the cards of others. They are by far the best on Internet. Spud

  323. Anthony 9 December, 2014 at 03:28

    I break with BTB (aka: Big Texas Breaks). Erick is very entertaining! Erick always has at least 1 or 2 SICK case hits. He always ships my cards out next day.

  324. Wade Powell 9 December, 2014 at 11:22

    First off BTB Big Texas Breaks is the only place I will Break. I was new to Breaking and when I ran across Eric with BTB I was skeptical. He gave me his personal phone number and I called and he explained things. I was breaking with him that night. I play poker for a living and am always on the look out for a scam. Eric was totally transparent with everything. Not just about the breaks but he will meet and hang with you if your in his area. I shouldn’t say this be I know he has a great job. So he doesn’t do it for the money. That should matter to Breakers. I’ve read some of the other reviews and the site might be great but I didn’t get the personal attention. Anyone can do beeaks. But what happens if some mistake or misunderstanding happens. This is were the personal relationships really mean something. I have done tons of breaks with them. The only problem I have had with BTB is too many cool Breaks. I just wish I could get in on all of them.

  325. aaron 9 December, 2014 at 14:24

    I have been to numerous room platinum, friendly, blowout etc….
    But the best by far is BIG TEXAS BREAKS on They have the greatest deals and i always get my cards fast and when i get them they are not beat up like from some of the other breakers out there. They really do take care of you. Don’t fall for the gimmicks of some of these other breakers out there, if u want a great reliable breaker than BIG TEXAS BREAKS is the place to be.

  326. bclapp 9 December, 2014 at 18:33

    at first I shopped around but it did not take long to see the only place to break at is Bigtexasbreaks. we always have a great time and I always get my cards fast. BTB treats your cards like they were his own. plus when I was just getting back into the hobby he treated me like a equal. the crew at BTB is like Family

  327. skeety22 9 December, 2014 at 19:13

    Chad Redfern the man with the fire hands – thetruth17 is who I always break with. I have broke with him for years now. The reason I choose to go with him besides the reasonable prices is that he is entertaining and not obnoxious like some of the other breakers. He is a very stand up and honest guy, just look at the reseal incident that was ran into. He took his own personal case and broke it for his paying customers not knowing if he would be able to recoup his losses. My wife does hate him though because she is always always seeing on our monthly bill payments to Firehand SportsCards!

  328. John S 10 December, 2014 at 09:30

    Heavy D is hands down the best breaker in the biz! Hit or no Hit you get something Every Time! He is always doing fun mixers and giveaways as well as the newest products to hit the market.

    His pull it and list it system on ebay is the first of its kind, definitely bringing something new to the table on a weekly basis!

    He even changed his whole site around just for the Holidays! Its festive, and its awesome!

    Thanks Heavy D for always hookin it up!

    Location: So Cal
    Breaker: Derrick “Heavy D” Stevens

  329. Will Fi. 11 December, 2014 at 00:17

    Heavy D!! Derrick is an Exceptional breaker, and an even better guy. Customer friendly, and great pricing. Would recommend him to anyone. Always goes the extra mile, and no one goes home a loser (best bad break bonus in the business)

    Go to and give him a try, you’ll be hooked.

  330. VEGASVINNY 11 December, 2014 at 15:39

    Have had the best luck with Friendlyboxbreaks on Breakers… They have pulled me some great value cards. They are very upbeat and make you feel right at home. The guys are funny and never ignore you. I have also had great pulls from STLsportscards on Breakers…

  331. D.J. 11 December, 2014 at 16:51

    Can’t recommend Derrick enough. One of the few sites I allow my son to watch and interact with the room. Great core group of people. Derrick always keeps it clean and exciting! Fair pricing. Fast shipping. Great pulls. This guy is on a hot streak of 1/1’s.

    Highly recommended.

  332. Ryan 12 December, 2014 at 12:04

    Bryan at @thubb is awesome! I won’t go anywhere great time great breaking site and GREAT prices. I also like that he proves he isn’t taking the prime cases. He’s honest and great to work with.

  333. DB 12 December, 2014 at 23:59

    The best case breakers on the Internet is…period! I’ve been collecting for over 30 years and since I have been dealing with them over the last 2 years, what they have pulled for me is epic!!! Tim and Larry, (Brad Z on special occassions) have pulled more spectacular cards for me that even leave me speechless at times! Every break is run professionally and fun! I thank them personally for introducing me to case breaking online and suggest anyone looking for an opportunity to get some amazing cards, check them out at….you will not be disappointed…I’m not!!!

  334. Chad Batson Brian 13 December, 2014 at 02:52

    My Favorite breaker are ScammingWax INC – Shadyhand Cards – Aluminium Card Breaks – Bigdirt35 –

    Group Breaks are a rip off. Most of the time you just donate $50 to someone who sits on a webcam all day. For what it cost to get in a Group Break you can go buy the card you want off Ebay for about the same price. Plus, All the new product coming out drops $25 a box in a week. And this High end stuff these card company are pushing out is way overpriced. $350 for 1 Card with a patch that might be game worn but we don’t feel like putting it on the back of a card to save ourselves the same embarrassment Panini went though. This is a Dead Hobby get out while you can and invest your money in stocks.

  335. Matt G 13 December, 2014 at 10:25

    There are a ton of great breakers and not so great breakers in the hobby. The breaker that has separated from the pack (pun intended) and in my opinion is the best is Bryan Gavin who owns Ultimate Box Breaks. With any breaker you want and expect great customer service. Without a doubt Bryan provides this! What makes Bryan the best though, is his dedication to innovation in the industry. He has developed software utilized on his website to allow for the collector to maximize their experience. Team draft preferences are able to be set and once boxes are sold the team draft happens immediately via integration of a randomizer on the draft site. He then has layered in the ability to trade on the website with the use of your own personal dashboard. It’s pure genius. Further, Bryan recognizes the importance of helping collectors with their grading needs. He has integrated a BGS submission process on the Dashboard. This is a tremendously easy way for a collector to enhance their collection by having Bryan assist with the grading process. Bryan is dedicated to making the hobby better and creating an enjoyable atmosphere to grow a collector’s personal collection. Thanks Bryan for bringing me back to the hobby!

    Check out Out of the Box Breaks

    2194 Robertson Road,Unit 27C, Ottawa, ON K2H 9J5

    Dan , Jim and Nabber are the best breakers on the internet. Not only are they the most honest , and enjoyable breakers to watch, but the room itself, from the mods to all the members are the most inviting online. There shipping is perfect, and they will go out of their ways to give their members the best possible experience. Not only do they have some of the best prices on breakers but they also have a monthly loyalty program where they give away 1000’s of dollars in group credits and boxes. Make sure you check out Out of the Box, there is no one better doing Hockey.

    Iam doing Group Breaks every week too.

    The Difference between me and other Group Breakers is that i do Group Breaks for Collectors from Europe.
    Iam from Germany and we have many Collectors here who join my Group Breaks.

    Of course its more expensive because of shipping and Custom Fees but people like it that they can have Live Breaks over here in Europe.Plus they receive their Cards much quicker then from US Breaks.

    Iam not looking to make any Profit of it as i just want to give the Oversea Collectors the Opportunity to stay in the Hobby and have Fun in the Hobby.For most of us Collectors it would be a dream to go into Card Shops and search through cards.But sadly to say in Europe there are not many Card Shops as the Euopean People are watching other Sports like Soccer and Tennis instead of US Sports.

    So if its possible i would love to get into the Top 50 Group Breakers List just to tell the people from Europe that there is a opportunity for Group Breaks in Europe and that they are gladly welcome to join my Breaks.

  338. Jim B. 21 December, 2014 at 17:19

    THE ONLY PLACE TO BREAK IS AT Ultimate Box Breaks @Theubb.. The ONLY Live Drafting & Trading System Out There, Bryan is The Best at Making Sure EVERYONE Feels Welcome and Enjoy’s the Experience, His Customer Service Can’t be Beat, Fast Shipping, Free Monthly Breaks just to say “Thank You” to All his Breakers, And He Will Answer You’re Email Quickly AND YOU CAN EVEN SPEAK TO HIM IN PERSON OVER THE PHONE.!!! Who Else Does That.??? NOBODY.!!! UBB For Life.!!

  339. StateofHockey 11 January, 2015 at 17:13

    Truth17 aka Chad Redfern
    Irving77 aka Irving Minera

    2 best breakers IMO for price and longevity.

  340. ben 9 March, 2015 at 23:48

    Bates is the best in the business. Im sure there are a lot of great breakers out there. But bates is the best. Ive watched the guy do 20+ breaks in a night and everything shipped from all breaks within 2 days. No one else fills like bateson.

  341. mlake 18 March, 2015 at 10:25

    For hockey I stick with:
    TopNotch Breaks

  342. jasonkc8 16 April, 2015 at 06:32

    I go to Jaspy’s Hobby Land for the majority of breaks I enter. The breakers, Nick and Joe are very engaging and knowledgeable about sports in general. They have fair prices and fast delivery. It feels like hanging out with friends to break on Jaspy’s.

    800 S Pacific Coast Hwy. #268
    Redondo Beach, California 90277 USA


  343. Monte Foist 26 April, 2015 at 21:54

    I break with Scott Bateson over at he really works hard to make things fun and fair as possible.

  344. BrandonG 7 May, 2015 at 11:34

    Pretty new to breaking but I like Derrick with OneofOneBoxBreaks. He does some of the high end stuff and his prices are very reasonable. He also does cheap breaks which appeal to me as well. You can pull some pretty nice cards for less than $5…

    Also like Scott with Nastybreaks, Bryan with Ultimate Box Breaks, and Chad at Firehand. All are very personable and knowledgeable.

    I would recommend all 4 breakers to anyone.

  345. rob giancola 21 July, 2015 at 15:33

    The two best breakers are gussy from finest and chad from firehands. Gussy has the best commentary and is the friendliest around he also has the best pronunciations of players names. Chad has the best budget breaks 5 for fun football are the best. Only downside with fern is he is in California and breaks late. #crossyourfingersholdyourweiner # gussy4prez

  346. Thomas Heuer 14 August, 2020 at 21:45

    We are a BRAND NEW sports break company operating out of Fayetteville, NC. Veteran owned and operated! Our first break is scheduled for 5 SEP. HUGE break. Give us a try!
