WHAT A WEEK! We just finished the National in Chicago and we had to go out in style.

BIG DINNER AND JK'S GUM WORLD RECORD
Since arriving at the National, JK set out to break a world record for most vintage gum eaten. We kept you updated on his daily progress, but we're sad to say that JK fell just short. Heck of at try, though, JK. "The Beard" wanted to make sure we knew he wasn't a quitter and wanted to show off his amazing gift of putting away massive amounts of food with a big dinner. Behold - the before and after photos of what the team ordered. Note the size of JK's plate...
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Break-A-Maniacs! We can't wait to see you at the National in 2022!
Special shout out to the entire VB TEAM from everyone at the show to Kris, Lilly, and Ken working back in the NJ office. An entire team effort.
WHY CHOOSE VINTAGE BREAKS?
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.
You NEVER go home empty-handed. You always get your spot! Unlike team breaks or division breaks where other breaking companies may pocket your cash and send the unlucky home without a card, you always get your spot at Vintage Breaks.
Lack of product in stores has been a problem; we see the same empty shelves that you do. Target has paused all card sales! If you can't find cards, Vintage Breaks is your solution!.
FUN! Cards are our passion! Isn't is just more fun to chat with other collectors? Come hang with us and other collectors just like you during our breaks.
Even if you just want to watch the show, chat, and meet new collectors, that's always welcomed!
A Vintage Breaks, we have our main breaking show in New Jersey (The North), to go with our night owls in the South (Georgia), and the West (Arizona). You can always check our CALENDAR to see when we're breaking.
CONTACT US ANY TIME
If you have any questions about a product, break, shipping, or even if you're interested in SELLING a collection, reach out any time!
