(Real) baseball card breaks

SDS

Anyone on hear collect real cards, and any of you participate in live stream breaks? I never knew what that was until recently but I guess someone opens up packs on a live stream, and beforehand people have the option to purchase a team, then the cards the streamer opens go to whoever bought that team.

Anyway I know a guy who just started doing this and he’s just trying to gather a following right now so has been giving the cards away for free. He has pulled 3 one of one cards so far on his streams. I’m not sure if he is going to keep doing the freebies or not, as his first paid break is coming up in a couple of days for some topps museum collection.

My question is can I post the name of his group on here? Or not? Don’t want to break any rules but just thought many in this community might enjoy his breaks.

SDS

I ducking love breaks.

SDS

I never even knew that was a thing but seems to be a lot of fun. I think I’ll prob appear on his streams sometimes as he is looking for some help.

SDS

I guess even if I can’t advertise the group info on here I might be able to give it out through pms? Again if that’s not allowed then just let me know and delete the thread.

SDS

I'm not interested man, I've done a few before and they're a lot of fun but I've already spent close to $300 this year on cards + 2 hobby boxes. Tell him to try r/baseballcards and advertise his breaks there.

SDS

He prob already is, just figured there would prob be a lot of people interested in this community.

SDS

Is he the guy who pulled the 3, 1/1 from archives?

SDS

Idk, I get why breaking exists, especially for people who only want to zero in on collecting their team. But for me, nothing replaces the excitement of having a pack in hand and opening it myself. I collect pretty heavily, but never been in a break

SDS

I do some. But I also do Topps Bunt, more than irl

SDS

I’m not sure, I watched one stream where he pulled a Rangers Choo one of one relic card, think it was from the topps museum, did not see the other one of ones. He isn’t trying to make money just collects angels and so doing it for fun, and so he can justify opening more packs to his wife.

If you're doing breaks, you're doing it for money.

See, I would feel uneasy about breaking with a guy that always has the Angels as his team. Obviously, I don't know him and can't accurately make a judgment on him. But having a break cost covered and keeping Trouts wouldn't sit right with me.

If I ever ventured into breaking, I would never break with someone who has spots in his own breaks.
