Frequently Asked Questions

What is a group break?

A group break is a way for people to split a box or a case of cards without paying the full price of the box or case. There are many different ways to do this.

What types of group breaks are there, and how do I get into a break?

  • Pick Your Team (PYT) - You choose which team(s) you want, and each team has a different price based on demand and the number of hits in the product.
  • Random Team - Each spot costs the same amount, and you are randomly assigned a team via five list randoms on random.org/lists. Sometimes two teams will be combined to make up one spot because they have a smaller amount of hits in the product.
  • Random Divisions - Each spot costs the same amount, and you are randomly assigned a division (e.g., AFC North, AFC South, AFC East, AFC West, NFC North, NFC South, NFC East, and NFC West) via five list randoms on random.org/lists.
  • Random Hit - Each spot costs the same amount and is guaranteed a hit. After all of the cards have been opened, they are randomly assigned to all participants via five list randoms on random.org/lists.
  • Draft Style - Each spot costs the same amount and is guaranteed a hit. After all of the cards have been opened, all participants are randomly assigned a draft position via five list randoms on random.org/lists. The hits are then drafted by all participants in the determined draft order.
  • Random Number - Each spot costs the same amount, and you are randomly assigned a number 0-9 via five list randoms on random.org/lists. For cards, you receive any cards that ends in your assigned serial number. For example, the participant with number 4 would get any cards with the left serial number ending in 4 (e.g., 4/10 and 24/50). For jerseys, the jersey number determines who the winner is. For example, the participant with number 7 would receive a jersey with the number 7 or 97.
  • Personal - This is a single box break done live. In most cases, only the hits are shipped, not base cards. 


You can buy into our group breaks or purchase a personal box by clicking on "BOX & CASE BREAKS" at the top or bottom of the website. From here, you can select the sport and which type of break you would like. Next, you will be able to purchase a number of spots or specific team based on which type of break you are buying into. Once a break is full, we will notify all participants by email. 


MVP Sports Cards & More processes orders through PayPal, and we use Square for credit card orders. Your payment information is sent directly to PayPal and Square, and it is never kept on our website. 

Additional Break Rules

For any college product, cards will go to their current team. For example, a T.J. Hockenson Iowa Hawkeyes card would go to the Detroit Lions. 


Any retired players or current free agents go to the team that player spent the majority of his career with unless there is a specific MLB, NBA, NFL, or NHL team designated on the card. 


Any card that depicts a player on a defunct or relocated team will go to that franchise's current team. For example, any Seattle Supersonics cards would go to the Oklahoma City Thunder. If that franchise no longer exists, the card would go to the team that player played the most games with. If a card cannot be claimed by a current team, it will be randomly awarded among all break participants via five list randoms on random.org/lists. 


Any card that depicts players from multiple teams will be entered into a random for all owners of that card unless someone owns all of the teams on the card. For example, if a card features Aaron Judge, Pete Alonso, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the Yankees, Mets, and Blue Jays will be randomized five times. The card would go to whoever owns the team on top after the randoms.

When and where do I watch the breaks?

All breaks go live at 6:00 PM CST. They can be watched on YouTube Live, and recordings can be found on our YouTube channel if you are unable to watch it live.

What happens if I don't get any hits?

It's unfortunate, but sometimes the cards don't fall your way. While some of our breaks do have a form of hitless protection, you may walk away empty-handed at the end of a break. No refunds will ever be issued for hitless teams.

Anything else I should know?

Have fun! Card collecting is a hobby we all love and are passionate about, and it can only be as good as you make it. Please be respectful to each other, and let's form a strong, trustworthy community!
