Explaining Team Breaks with Vintage Breaks and How to Buy Spots Today

We like to keep things interesting at Vintage Breaks. Amongst the variety of breaks you will see while browsing our website are our Team Breaks. In short, a team break is when the cards you receive are for a single team. 

I know what you’re thinking. “Hey man, I already know what a team break is. I don’t need it explained to me.” While that may be true, this article is for everyone. Whether you’ve been collecting for years or are new to the hobby like Drake, collectors of all experience levels can benefit because our Team Breaks come with a twist. Like I said, we keep things interesting.


Our team breaks are also mixer breaks which means that if you purchase a spot in one of our team mixer breaks, your cards will not only be from the team you landed on in our random draw, but also from different years and products. Instead of hunting for a key rookie card of a particular year, you can hunt for key rookie cards for multiple years. Now that you know about our team breaks, let’s take a look at what we have to offer.
