House Rules for Group Breaks
What is a Group Break?
A group break is where people share a box or case of cards by dividing up the product by team, player or some other method.
How do I join a break?
Visit OUR E-commerce store and choose the box that interests you, grab a spot in a random team break!
When does my break happen?
Breaks usually start at 15:00 CDT and last until 19:00 CDT. We break 6 days a week, Monday-Friday, and on Saturday 12:00 - 19:00 CDT.
We will also spontaneously pop on other days! As breaks fill. If we are live and more than one break fills we will do them in the order they filled.
When do I get my cards?
Cards are sorted and will be sleeved, top loaded within 3-5 business days of the break.
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. Base or common cards are subject to each break rules in the listing.
Where can I watch the break and where do I see what teams I have?
Please be sure to head over to our website and we have to buttons on the top of the page for our YouTube live and Breakers.tv We also have a scroll on the bottom of the screen with everyone’s names and teams running during the break.
I missed the live break, how can I watch it?
All breaks are uploaded at the end of the day and can be viewed on our YouTube Channel @ Triple B Collectibles.
Types of breaks
These are the standard formats and rules that we use for our group breaks. (Pick Your Team), (Random Team), (Divisional Breaks) (Serial Numbers) & (Hit Draft).
Instead of selling team spots, dealers sell by division. This style is popular in football. For example, a collector can buy a slot for the NFC East or AFC West.
Serial ##/## Breaks:
Serial Number break 0 to 9
Buyers will buy a spot for the break. We will then take those slots and randomize them on random.org
We will then take all serial #'s and randomize them on random.org
We will match the name and the number up and this will be your match.
Below is a table of what number get what cards
Serial #0 (10, 20 ,30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90)
Serial #1 (1/1, 11, 21 ,31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 81, 91)
Serial #2 (2, 12, 22 ,32, 42, 52, 62, 72, 82, 92)
Serial #3 (3, 13, 23 ,33, 43, 53, 63, 73, 83, 93)
Serial #4 (4, 14, 24 ,34, 44, 54, 64, 74, 84, 94)
Serial #5 (5, 15, 25 ,35, 45, 55, 65, 75, 85, 95)
Serial #6 (6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 66, 76, 86, 96)
Serial #7 (7, 17, 27, 37, 47, 57, 67, 77, 87, 97)
Serial #8 (8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 58, 68, 78, 88, 98)
Serial #9 (9, 19, 29, 39, 49, 59, 69, 79, 89, 99)
For example, a card numbered 5/10 would go to 5, 23/50 would go to 3, and 10/10 would go to 0.
For any redemption, we will look up what the card is numbered out of and randomize between the associated parties. If we pull a NON ## card then all customers would be eligible to win that card.
Random Team Group Break Rules
After all spots are full for the break, names and teams are entered into a list randomizer
We then go to Random.org and select “dice roller” and roll 2 dice.
If “dice roller” is 3 or less we roll again until we hit 4 or higher.
We then go to the “team names” list randomizer with the result of the first dice roll and randomizer that list.
We than go back to the “dice roller” and roll for the next list “your names”
If “dice roll” is 3 or less we roll again until we hit 4 or higher.
We then go to “your names” list randomizer with the result of the Second dice roll and randomizer that list.
Once both lists have been randomized, the lists are copied onto a spreadsheet and matched by number.
Your name will be on the right column and your team will be on the left column.
All hits, jerseys, patches, autographs, rookies, inserts and #d cards that come out for your team will be shipped to you.
Other Group Break Rules
During the hosted breaks, there will be plenty of time to trade teams among each other. If there are any trades
Trades must be confirmed to the group break host via the Chat box
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.
If a card is pulled that is from a past team that card will go to the current team.
If a card is pulled from a Defunct and moved team Like the Winnipeg Jets (PRE 1996) go to Winnipeg Jets, Atlanta Thrashers go to Winnipeg jets (EST.2011)
All breaks are archived on our website and YouTube so they may be viewed at a later date.
Triple B Collectibles 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.
IF A SINGLE PLAYER IS PULLED AND THEY DID NOT PLAY IN OR FOR THAT MAJOR LEAGUE TEAM. EXAMPLE: IF A FOOTBALL AUTO FROM A FOOTBALL GROUP BREAK WAS PULLED AND THE PLAYER ON THE FOOTBALL PLAYED FOR THE HOUSTON ASTROS IN THE MLB, THIS ITEM WOULD NOT GO TO THE TEAM IN THE FOOTBALL GROUP BREAK, BUT THIS ITEM WOULD BE RANDOMIZED AT RANDOM.ORG. TO ALL CUSTOMERS IN THE GROUP BREAK.
HOW THIS WOULD WORK, I WILL ROLL THE TWO VIRTUAL DICE, I WILL ADD UP THE NUMBER AND THEN ROLL THE CUSTOMER LIST THAT AMOUNT OF TIMES ON THE DICE. TOP SPOT WOULD WIN THE ITEM.
IF A MULTI PLAYER CARD IS PULLED THEY WILL BE RANDOMIZED ON RANDOM.ORG, WITH THE OWNER GOING TO THE TOP NAME AFTER THE RANDOMIZATION, UNLESS SOMEONE OWNS MORE THAN 50% OF THE CARD. IF A PLAYER HAS BEEN TRADED, RETIRED, OR SIGNED BY ANOTHER TEAM OR A COLLEGE LOGO IT WILL GO TO THE TEAM IN WHICH THE PLAYER PLAYED FOR THE YEAR THE CARD WAS/IS MANUFACTURED. FOR RETIRED PLAYERS WITH NO LOGO, IT WILL GO TO THE TEAM WITH THE LONGEST TENURE.
We do reserve the right to look up any player/players to see who and when they played for in any major league sport or minor league sport. If we find that the said player/players did not play in the major/minor league sports of said group break, then the following rules apply from above.
