Attention all you prospectors out there! This is the VERY FIRST TIME I will have ever torn through a case of Bowman, and it’s going to be big! My case of 2014 Bowman Jumbo boxes have been ordered, the official checklist has been finalized and released, and pricing has been set! Now’s the time to get in on a fun way to do some good for a great charitable cause—and maybe even score a rare autographed prospect card or two in the process.

There are 8 jumbo boxes in each case of 2014 Bowman Jumbo. Each jumbo box is composed of 12 packs with approximately 32 cards per pack. Every jumbo box is also advertised to have 3 hits on average.

New to Bowman this year are Silver Diamond and Black Refractor Autographs, Black Refractor and Green Refractor Autographed Bowman Chrome Prospects, Red Ice and Purple Ice Parallel Autographs, Red Autographed Chrome Refractor Bowman Minis, and Chrome Refractor Bowman Mini Superfractor Autographs. New base parallel colored borders include green, yellow, silver, gold, black and purple. There are plenty of different fun items to chase!

Topps has scheduled 2014 Bowman for release on March 30 2014 and I will be cracking our case on May 7 2014. All slot pricing has been determined and posted. Invoices have been sent to those who reserved slots earlier. Slot prices cover the cost of the cards as well as shipping, handling, supplies, and a $5 donation to charity! Not only that, with your slot, you’ll be invited to my Private Break at the end of the year. You’ll also get a discount of $5 for that Private Break—in fact, you get a $5 discount for each Crackin’ Wax charity case break you join in 2014!

It was a helluva night, too. I’ve never pulled so many hits out of one case in my life. Out of the 40 advertised hits, I pulled 46 PLUS two reverse photo short prints! For those who don’t quite have enough time to watch/re-watch the 3 hour long video, here’s a photographic recap of the amazing hits pulled. Click on the images to view larger versions.

Hey there errvrabody! Just givin’ alla y’alls a reminder that the 2014 Gypsy Queen charity case break is happening LIVE at 5pm Central tomorrow April 16 2014! Not in the break? Who gives a hoot?! You can still watch, you kinky little voyeur, you. Just come back here at the appropriate time, sit back and watch me crack that wax!

Everyone is more than welcome to join me in the chat room. The break will be broadcast via Google+ Hangouts, so in order to join the chat room, we’ll have to be in each other’s circles. I’ll send out an invite before the break so you can get in on the talky talk.

When we did the Turkey Red break, I turned it into a drinking game. Being that this is a charity break, I will not be imbibing alcohol. However, for those who would like to drink along, please BYOB (bring your own beverage). It can be orange juice, milk, an Arnie Palmer—hell, it can be a Perrier for all I care! No matter what you’re drinking, here are the rules: for every hit, take a sip; for a hit from any of your slots (for those in the break) or your favorite team (for those not in the break), take a full drink (approximately 6-8 ounces). Jeff B., I suggest you keep a direct path to the bathroom completely free and clear.

Want to get a head start on the next charity case break? Now’s a good time to do it because next up is 2014 Bowman Jumbo. I have a feeling that slots are gonna go flying. Better grab a net. Better yet, grab your slot as soon as you possibly can, man. Just scroll up to the top o’ the blog, hover over Crackin’ Wax Case Breaks, then click on 2014 Bowman Jumbo to find and lock your slots!

See alla y’alls soon, ya dig?!
