While there may be many styles of breaks involved at Vintage Breaks the main avenues are “Set Breaks”, "Pack Breaks", and "Box Breaks".
If a pack consists of an extra card or extra cards, the first person on the list will receive it, seeing that the first card will typically have gum residue or damage. This goes for inserts and stickers as well.
Vintage Breaks will post complete set breaks for sale. The total number of spots for sale will generally correlate with the number of cards in the set; however, from time to time, additional items may be added to the set break.
Additional spots representing these items will be added to the overall number of cards, or spots, in the set break. For example, a 1968 Topps baseball set has 598 cards; however, Vintage Breaks may decide to add 10 spots from a separate break thus bringing the total number of spots in the 1968 Topps set break to 608. This will be clearly disclosed in the store listing. As all cards will be selected using a randomizer, there is no guarantee that any one spot purchase will result in a particular card.
A hit random is a collection of pre-selected trading cards assembled and offered at random for a set price per spot. As all cards will be selected using a randomizer, there is no guarantee that any one spot purchase will result in a particular card.
Pack breaking is very simple. For each pack we sell a number of spots that corresponds with the stated number of cards in the pack. The order of the cards drawn will be chosen using a randomizer. In the event that there are more cards in the pack than slots the remaining cards will be awarded at random to a customer or customers in the break. As all cards will be selected using a randomizer, there is no guarantee that any one spot purchase will result in a particular card.
Sometimes a single pack won't do and you’ve gotta break the whole box. These function similar to pack breaks except that instead of card spots we use pack spots. The customer list is randomized and each one is assigned a pack slot in the break. As all pack spots will be selected using a randomizer, there is no guarantee that any one spot purchase will result in a particular pack.

If you have any questions please contact us at 732-828-2261 and ask for Sam.
When we are live on YouTube and Breakers.TV we will have vintage cards, packs or other miscellaneous items to give away during the show when someone meets the criteria set by the breaker. For example, if someone purchases spots worth $100 in one transaction and the breaker is offering a 1962 Topps Whitey Ford baseball card for the next person to spend $100, he/she will win that incentive. All incentives are first come, first serve and we check by our time stamp through our software.
In the event a pack is short of the amount of advertised cards in the pack or box, we will refund customers in the form of break credit. For example if a pack advertises 17 cards and we sell 17 slots but the pack only has 16 cards the customer who was awarded slot 17 will receive a break credit for the amount of the spot. In the event that there are more cards in the pack than advertised we will award the card(s) starting with the first participant in the break then go down the list. If a break does not sell out and you would like to receive a refund please contact us and we will issue you a break credit for the amount of the spot(s).
In the event you are unable to watch your product being broken live on camera you are welcome to watch your break on our YouTube channel at http://youtube.com/vintagebreaks.
To find your video you will need to find the video title in our channel that matches the SKU for the product your purchased. For example if you purchased this product you would look for the video that matches 1975 Topps Baseball Cello Pack 19.
To protect the buyer and seller from fraudulent charges, PayPal places random holds on invoices. Unfortunately, since they are placed on hold the funds do not go through our system and we can't see your purchases until PayPal removes the hold. Another reason purchases are placed on hold is if the customer uses E-Checks, please reach out to us if you do use this method as it takes 3 to 5 business days to see the funds. PayPal does let us know via email once a payment that was placed on hold goes through, at this point a break might have happened already and your spots were not included. Please reach out to us via phone 732-828-2261 or email us Sam@vintagebreaks.com if you did not see your name in a break, we will be happy to look over your invoice and check PayPal. If your order was placed on hold and you were not in the break we would be happy to refund you for the missing spots.
