Welcome to Crackin’ Wax!

Hello and welcome! Please, make yourself at home. Looking to join a good case break? Just head up to the Crackin’ Wax Case Breaks menu! Want some relatively free cards? Check out the Take My Cards section! Want to know what my wife thinks of her husband collecting baseball cards? Read “The Better Half!” Looking for new blog posts? Just scroll down.

And now, a video of our cat making baseball cards…

Our end-of-year Private Break continues to grow with the addition of one box of 2015 Topps Tier One Baseball! This high-end product features 3 cards per box—all hits! Only those who have at least one spot in any one of the four Crackin’ Wax Charity Case Breaks in 2015 will be invited. There is just one charity break remaining with available spots, and that’s the huge annual Allen & Ginter charity case break! Spots for this break are not currently live, however those who have signed up for our Group Breaks Mailing List will be the first to be able to grab spots in that break. If you want to be one of the first to grab a spot in the Allen & Ginter charity break and earn an invitation to the end-of-year Private Break, just subscribe to our Group Breaks Mailing List!

While I Was Away…

f04As you may have noticed, we’ve been a bit preoccupied with so many different things going on in our neck of the woods. Tonight, Literal Quirk is accepting her award as Minnesota’s Big Sister of the Year as a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters. With so many different things going on, I haven’t been able to keep tabs on the goings on in regards to trading cards. For instance, thanks to Waxtopia, I learned that Topps will be issuing a 1951 Heritage set later in the year. If I’m reading the article correctly, it seems as if it will be released much like Heritage High Numbers was in recent years. Also, without immediately noticing, our upcoming Topps Finest charity case break sold out! As usual, if you have any spots in that break, please watch for your final invoices after the full checklist comes out. Also, now that the Finest break is sold out, I will be having a pre-sale on spots for 2015 Topps Series 2 (which is included for those with the 2015 Season Pass). The ONLY way to get in on that pre-sale is to sign up for our Group Breaks Mailing List. That pre-sale could happen at any time, so keep your eyes wide open!

It’s been a whirlwind of activity in Crackin’ Wax Manor, so things haven’t been tended to here at the blog as they normally would be. With that in mind, I’m going to quickly touch on a few subjects. The first being the 2015 Topps Finest Charity Case Break. Spots are now live to the public and, as of this posting, there are only 4 left! Why, you ask? The Group Breaks Mailing List pre-sale! Those who are signed up for the mailing list have the first crack at spots in select breaks. To check out the break specifics and grab some spots, just head up to the Crackin’ Wax Case Breaks menu and click on 2015 Topps Finest Charity. To get in on future pre-sales, just sign up to join our Group Breaks Mailing List.

The second subject has to do with the recently released 2015 Panini Diamond Kings. I’ve got a box of this great product and I’m adding it to the end-of-year Private Break! The only way to get an invitation to the Private Break is to take at least one spot in at least one Crackin’ Wax Charity Case Break—just like Finest!

The Mrs. and I are going to go back to selling our house while buying a new house while she’s running for a promotion at her job while being recognized as Big Sister of the Year while I’m working on relaunching Varsity Trading Cards while… did we bite off more than we can chew? NAH!

Oh, and if you missed it, the Bowman break this past Saturday was awesome! Somehow I managed to get all of the cards sorted, packed, and shipped on Monday morning! If you missed the break, check out the replay video and a couple of the nice hits we pulled below.

What’s the deal with Domingo German’s card numbering?
