While there may be many styles of breaks involved
at Vintage Breaks the two main avenues are “Set Breaks” and “Hit Drafts” and will be explained in detail below.
Vintage Breaks will acquire classic and vintage sets and will break it down by the number of cards in the set thus reducing the cost to customer to get a chance at some of the most iconic cards in the sports card industry. For example, a 1952 Topps set with 407 cards will be listed on the site with 407 total slots up for grabs at an average price across the board. Once all slots in the Set Break are purchased the fun will begin. All 407 entrants into the break will be put into a list randomizer and two die will be rolled, whatever the outcome of the dice roll is will be how many times the randomizer will be clicked to set our first list. Once we have completed the random we will then copy and paste the list over to a spreadsheet and move on two our second random to determine our results.
The second list will be the card numbers and names of all the players listed in the set that is in the current break, for this example it is the 1952 Topps Set. The same scenario above will also occur with this list except that there will be no roll of the dice as we will use the same number from the first dice roll to use for both randomizers. Once this random is complete the outcome will be copied and pasted onto the spreadsheet with the entrants and whichever card lines up with your name will be the card that you would receive from this set. For example, if your name ended up in slot #47 on the entrant list and on the set list card #311 ends up in slot #47 you just won a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle for a few hundred dollars as opposed to paying well into the thousands of dollars!
“Hit Draft Break”
A Hit Draft is a predetermined number of spots with a predetermined number of items in the break. How the process works is if we have ten items in the Hit Draft Break there will be ten total entrants. All ten entrants will be put into a list randomizer and two die will be rolled, whatever the outcome of that roll will be how many times the list will be randomed. After the final click of the list randomizer the draft order will be determined. Whoever ends up in the first spot on the final random will get first pick from the ten predetermined items after they make their selection whoever ends up in second place on the random will get to choose from the nine remaining items available. This process moves all the way down until the final spot at which point that entrant will get whatever the last remaining item available is.

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.
For customers who purchase spots when we are not live, the number of entries you purchased will be gathered and placed for our 7pm Hourly Giveaway at the next live session. For example, if you purchased 12 entries into 4 different packs on Saturday and Monday night, your 12 entries will be included in our Tuesday night 7pm Hourly Giveaway. Your name will be in our list for every entry purchased prior to Tuesday's 6pm EST. show. If you purchase entries on Wednesday then your name will be in our Thursday night 7pm Hourly Giveaway.
Aside from our Hourly Giveaways, we also have our Big Board Giveaways. This is only available when we are live on Tuesday and Thursday night and also on our Friday Happy Hour Show (when available). We have random items on our Big Board ranging from $25 up $100 as a minimum to be entered in that specific giveaway. For example, right now we may have a 1963 Topps Mickey Mantle baseball card as a giveaway and we need 25 names to fill it up and random it off to one person, but you need to spend at least $100 to participate in this giveaway. Once we have 25 names we will random it off using www.random.org, and the person's name at the top will win the Mantle card. Our Big Board giveaways are only available when we are live, we have to know which giveaway you want to be a part of since we have different items at different price points. You can contact us through our YouTube or Breakers.TV chat room or you can email the breaker at email@example.com while he is live.
