The pre-sale for this 2016 Gypsy Queen charity case break was phenomenal, however there are still teams left! Teams, such as the Chicago White Sox pictured above, can be locked in right now for just $20 with the remainder due before we break. If your team’s price is under $20, we’ll refund you the difference! This break benefits St. Baldrick’s Foundation, an organization devoted to funding child cancer research. Be part of something fun and help us do something good for a great cause!


The Museum Collection case break sold out quickly, which means it’s time to start taking advance pre-sale down payments for our 2016 Topps Gypsy Queen charity case break benefitting St. Baldrick’s. This pre-sale is exclusive to subscribers of our Group Breaks Mailing List and will go live at 7pm Central on Friday February 19 2016. The only way to gain access to this pre-sale is to subscribe before the pre-sale begins. Subscribers will receive an e-mail when the pre-sale begins which will then allow them access to spots in the Gypsy Queen break. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled this Friday night!

We did it! Another great case break in the books, and this time we raised $150 for a tremendous cause! We pulled 43 total hits, three more than the expected 40, and two variation short prints. Also, I FINALLY pulled my very first ever Jose Abreu auto! Congrats to Ross of Design On Deck for scoring that bad boy!

Of course, there were some downsides to the break. We ran across some damage issues that affected the top card in many of the packs. We also ended up pulling an unusual amount of dupe hits. Pulling even one dupe hit in a full case can sometimes be seen by some as unacceptable.

Other than the few damaged base cards and the dupe hits, it was yet another classic case break made all the better by giving back to such an amazing cause in St. Baldrick’s.

Also, Literal Quirk was back in full force and in rare form! She’s definitely the highlight of any of our breaks! If you haven’t done so yet, I encourage you to check out the replay video of the break if only just for her!

In just under two weeks we’ll be busting up a case of 2015 Bowman. As of this posting, we have just 4 spots + 1 free spot remaining. Get your spots fast! This break WILL sell out!

We’re on! Just head to the 2015 Topps Gypsy Queen Charity case break page to watch and chat!
