Tribecards Break Rules (as of 07/16/2018)


It is your sole responsibility to know and understand the rules and procedures of these breaks before proceeding. By joining, participating in and paying for any spot(s) in any break, you agree to the rules and conditions posted below. Tribecards cannot and shall not be held responsible or liable for failure to adhere to this agreement.

Here are the standard rules for each break held here at Tribecards. Please be sure to read this page thoroughly before buying into ANY break here. Some Tribecards breaks will have their own rules but most will adhere to these general rules.


All cards contained within each respective box and/or case will be used for each break. You pick the spot(s) you would like, pay for your spot(s), and I’ll send you your new cards after the break! In most cases, Tribecards keeps ALL Cleveland baseball-related cards. In the case of multi-team cards, Tribecards adheres to the procedures listed below. Some breaks are done for charity. For those, I donate a portion (usually 10%) of the cost of every purchased team spot per each respective charity break to that break’s assigned charity.


Many breaks will be broadcast live on the Tribecards: The Hobby YouTube Channel after either all spots have been fully paid or after the product arrives–whichever comes last*. This scheduling condition is subject to change for each respective break. Videos focus more on the hits and other cards of interest in order to keep the video at a reasonable length. Video of the each break will be available on the Tribecards: The Hobby YouTube Channel.


In the event that a card of any type containing multiple players from multiple teams is pulled, that card will be distributed this way:

  • The team majority owner of the card (i.e. 2 Team A + 1 Team B on 1 card goes to Team A owner), or
  • The spot majority owner of the card (i.e. 1 Team A + 1 Team B + 1 Team C on 1 card goes to owner with most spots on card), or
  • Random spot owner (i.e. 1 Team A + 1 Team B + 1 Team C on a single card goes to randomly picked winner)


In the event that a card is pulled in which the team represented is now playing in another city and/or has changed names, it will be assigned to its current counterpart’s spot. For instance, all Montreal Expos cards will be assigned to the Washington Nationals.
