All 264 cards are included in this set break including the Dr. J rookie card. We are only offering 264 spots in this break - this ensures that you will take home a card from the set! The list of names is always randomized LIVE on the show as the break occurs; you have the same chance as everyone else in the break to land the cards you desire. For example, if after the random your name lands on spot #195, you take home the Dr. J card! 

Whether you're looking to build a set or add a key card to your collection, or if you're simply joining our card breaks for the first time (welcome!), this is the perfect break for you; each spot is only $17.50. That price includes taxes and shipping - a straight $17.50.

Take it back to a time when the ABA had the legendary Dr. J in 1972 before the league merged with the NBA. Back when the Dr. and other stars of the ABA shot that sweet red, white, and blue ball that you see him shooting in that PSA 6 rookie above (the exact card in this break!) The God Father hit theatres (March 24th, 1972), Mikey liked Life, cereal, Sanford and Son was on TV, and you heard The Candy Man by Sammy Davis, Jr., and American Pie by Don McClean for first time on the radio. 

For details and to purchase your spots in the break for just $17.50 per spot just click here:

Vintage Breaks offers THE BEST VALUE IN BREAKING.

When you check out for a spot on the site, the price you see is the price you pay. Taxes and shipping are included!  Your cards always come protected in holders.  The last time you mailed a package out had to have set you back more than three bucks, right?  If you buy a $3.00 spot, you get your card holdered and shipped for that price.

Lack of product in stores has been a problem; we see the same empty shelves that you do.  If you can't find cards, Vintage Breaks is your solution.
