Case Breaking Company Guide: Top Group Break Options

Case Breaking Company Guide: Top Group Break Options

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the plethora of sports card and entertainment trading card case breaking companies that provide group break options to collectors. We have created a detailed breakdown of some of the top companies in the hobby to ensure you have the best group breaking experience possible:

Featured Online Case Breakers

Ripping Wax

You could call Ripping Wax Inc. founder David Gelfman "the Godfather" (if you wanted to) of online case breaking. Founded in 2011, Ripping Wax is based in Miami, Florida and is home to four "Breaking Operation" websites. They are also promoters of the biggest show in the sports card industry: The National Sports Collectors Convention. This includes their role as host to the Case Break Pavilion, where case breakers showcase their skills and personalities live during the convention, and even after the National has closed for the day.

Ripping Wax Breaking Operations

Jaspy’s HobbyLand

Based in Redondo Beach, California, Jaspy’s is a family-owned and operated, brick-and-mortar card shop that also happens to offer live case breaks from Monday through Friday. Aside from sports, they also have entertainment breaks, which are less common. Jaspy’s HobbyLand case breaks include "Random Team" and "Pick Your Team" breaks. Additionally, beginners can check out their "Ten Buck Breaks" to get a feel for the different ways to collect online without breaking the bank.

Nasty Breaks

Featuring high-end case breaks, Nasty Breaks begins live-streaming once all the spots are sold every day, with the exception of Friday and Saturday, which starts at 6 PM EST, and Sunday breaks that begin at 6:30 PM EST. In addition to full case breaks, they also break half cases, making the more expensive products not quite as pricey.

Rip City Cards

Need to see wax busted during lunch? Rip City Cards breaks every single day of the week beginning at high noon. Offering an eclectic mix of current trading cards, Rip City also organizes group breaks for previous years of cardboard products, along with personal breaks.

Online Case Breakers

KTA Breaks

Based in Palm Desert, California, KTA began by specializing in authentic memorabilia before growing into a well-known online breaker. Along with the familiar types of case breaks, KTA Breaks has regular giveaways during group breaks.

STL Sports Cards

STL Sports Cards broadcasts live via Twitch on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning at 5 PM EST. Driven by their company motto: Honesty. Integrity. Community., the site is home to an exclusive breaking community, but don't let that deter you as collectors only need to have a registered account to participate. STL Sports Cards even has a closed group on Facebook—The Clubhouse—that gives hobbyists a place to buy, sell, trade and talk shop while also providing advance notice of upcoming breaks.

Steel City Collectibles

As an online wholesale company, SCC has daily live-stream group breaks. Along with the five major sports, Steel City Collectibles often offers multi-sports case breaks.

Layton Sports Cards

Based in Altamonte Springs, Florida, Layton Sports Cards is a family-owned, full-service hobby shop that closes the store twice a week in order to focus on their case breaks. Although the store is not restricted to breaking on Wednesdays and Saturdays only, Layton has a full calendar handy for collectors to view when their favorite product will is available to break.

Mojobreak

Catering to every type of collector, Mojobreak has different styles of case breaks, box breaks and personal box breaks. In addition, Mojo frequently hosts "mixers," where the host breaks different sports card boxes instead of a case of the same product.

Big Texas Breaks

Featuring random team, along with random division types of case and box breaks, Big Texas Breaks appeals to collectors who prefer current, premium products.

Blowout TV

Part of the Blowout Cards Wholesale online store, Blowout TV offers several case breaks of various past and present products, including non-sport.

Crackin' Wax

The team at Crackin' Wax hosts sports-only group breaks, and unlike most breakers, their breaks serve as a way to give to charity. "Pick Your Team" breaks are the standard option with Crackin' Wax.

TopCutBreaks

Beyond running breaks Wednesday through Saturday, and owning a hobby shop, TCB also offers consignment services for collectors who would like to sell any card(s) from a case break.

Sports Stuff Hub

Along with breaking sports cards boxes and cases, Sports Stuff Hub provides a unique service for clients where they will help find that elusive card missing from their collection.

  1. Cards Infinity is great if you’re looking for personal boxes (he also does some group breaks)

    If you’re big into soccer then join Soccer Breakers FC group on Facebook. There is also a buying and trading group he runs for any soccer needs.
