F.A.Q.

What is a Group Break?

A group of people share a box or case of cards by dividing up the product in a pre determined method.

How do I join a break?

Visit the My Store and choose the box or case that interests you, grab a team or a spot in a random team break!

When does my break happen?

There is no set schedule or specific time when breaks happen rather it is when they fill.
We do the breaks once they are full while I am live on the set schedule of Monday thru Friday starting at 6 PM EST.

When do I get my cards?

Cards are sorted and will be sleeved, toploaded within 3-5 business days of the break.  Please remember there are usually multiple cases of cards being sorted and shipped at any time!

What cards do I get?

- All hits, jerseys, patches, autographs, rookies, inserts and #d cards that come out for your team will be shipped to you.   No base veteran cards will be shipped unless otherwise noted.

Where can I watch the break?

Make sure you are logged into our website and watching the break under the view live category.  

I missed the live break, how can I watch it?

All breaks are uploaded right after completion of the break on our YouTube channel.  

Types of breaks

These are the standard formats and rules that we use for our group breaks.

Random Team Group Break Rules

  • After all spots are full for the break, names and teams are entered into a list randomizer
  • The lists will be randomized depending on the roll of a die. Once the lists have been randomized, both lists are copied onto a spreadsheet and matched by number.
  • Your name will be on the left column and your team will be on the right column.
  • All hits, jerseys, patches, autographs, rookies, inserts and #d cards that come out for your team will be shipped to you.
  • If the break being done has teams that have been taken out before the random is done, anything that comes out for those teams will be randomized off to teams that go hitless.

Snake Draft Group Break Rules

  • After number of spots are determined and all spots are full for the break, names are entered into a list randomizer
  • The list will be randomized depending on the roll of a die. Once the lists have been randomized, the list is copied on to a spreadsheet.
  • Your name will be on the left column in the order in which you will draft your teams. The draft will be done snake draft style (Example: #1 – #15 then #15 – #1).
  • All hits, jerseys, patches, autographs, rookies, inserts and #d cards that come out for your team will be shipped to you.
  • If the break being done has teams that have been taken out before the random is done, anything that comes out for those teams will be randomized off to teams that go hitless

Other Group Break Rules

  • During the hosted breaks, there will be plenty of time to trade teams amongst each other or trade for the teams that are out of the break.
  • You can also sell your team before the break begins to another person, as long as you can come to terms with the deal.
  • Both trades and sales must be confirmed to the group break host.
  • When a card is pulled that has multiple players on it, it gets randomized at the end of the break between the teams on the card that are in the break.
  • Although highly recommended, you do not have to be present to participate in a live break. All breaks are archived on our website and may be viewed at a later date.
  • Many breaks are filled before the actual break date. Please sign up for or email newsletter in order to get the most up-to-the-minute information. You may also want to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for information and special contests and promotions.
  • Nasty Breaks reserves the right to expel and if need be, ban an individual from the site. No foul language, harassment or bullying of anyone in the live chat will be tolerated at any time. In order to make the process a pleasant one for all, please use good judgment and abide by the rules.
  • By purchasing a slot or team in a group break, you are acknowledging that there is no guarantee that you will receive any particular card, or cards for your slotted team, or teams.
