$180 Raised for Charity!


Thank you so much to everyone that participated in my first-ever charity case break! We raised $180 for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America as part of the Crackin' Wax Allen & Ginter charity break!

*Note: This amount reflects contributions from break participants. Money raised during the sale of unpicked teams will be donated after those sales are complete.

A Quick Allen & Ginter Charity Case Break Update!

Hey, everyone!

As some of you know, I was out sick for the past few days. This means that sorting and shipping for the A&G case break is a bit further behind than I had hoped. I will also be out of town for the next several days, so the A&G case break hauls will be mailed by FRIDAY, AUGUST 24!

Charity money totals will be posted this week as well.

I will start posting unclaimed teams to eBay on Saturday, August 25.

Thanks for your patience.

Look for a PAD Circus update coming in the next day or so as well!

One for the Thumb! Indians host 6th All-Star game!

The Cleveland Indians will take top honors in 2019 when they become the only TEAM in Major League baseball history to have hosted SIX All-Star games! WAHOO!!

Other cities have hosted more, but not by one, single team. That is AWESOME!!

Today (Aug 7, 2018) the Indians revealed the logo for the 2019 All-Star game:

Allen & Ginter Case Break BOX TOPPER Update

Hey, everyone! I have removed the "ALL Box Toppers" option as a separate buy-in. Instead, box toppers will go to the team(s)/spot(s) chosen by participants!

That's right, folks: If your team/spot pulls a box topper, YOU get it! Wahoo!!

Remember, the cut off is August 10th at 11:59pm Central US Time.

The break is planned for Saturday, August 11th! The break will most likely *NOT* be live due to Internet issues at my house, but I will record the breaks and post them to the Tribecards: The Hobby YouTube channel, make posts to Twitter, and will put together a highlights video/pictures.

Still plenty of spots open until the cutoff and remember: $30 buy-in then you name your donation! EVERYTHING you offer above $30 goes to help Crackin' Wax raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America!


Use the "CASE BREAK" tab above to sign up!

The Charity Case Break Will Go On!


Here is a charity case break update (08/02/2018):

The break will go on! No matter how many spots are filled or not filled, I *WILL* be doing the charity case break! Thank you so much to those of you who have signed up and paid for your spots!

UNFILLED SPOTS: Unfilled spots will have those cards listed for sale on eBay or possibly other online sales sites. A percentage of each sale will go to the BBBSA charity donation.

Not sure why I am having such a hard time selling spots to this case break, but I am taking it on faith that good things will come of this!

The break will happen shortly after August 11, 2018. I still don't have a break date yet due to family and work things going on, but the break WILL take place before September 1!

Remember, the deadline to sign up and pay is 11:59pm August 10, 2018!

Thanks again to everyone participating!!
