John Starks of New York Knicks Joins Vintage Breaks for Grand Opening

Starks Fan 5

Thank you for helping make the Grand Opening of our new retail store here in Millburn, New Jersey a night to remember! From the moment the ribbon was cut to the time we turned the lights off for the night, you helped us make our new Vintage Breaks store a home. New York Knicks legend, John Starks, even stopped by to take photos, sign autographs, and open cards! Take a look at the pictures from this special night.

Our new store at 296 Millburn Ave here in Millburn, NJ. is everything we can dream of and more! Trust us - NONE of this would be possible without you. From you the card breaks you join at {{cta('df0917f9-6925-401e-a24b-d48c9b4e7e5b')}} to the cards and supplies you purchase from our retail shop, you are the reason we were able to open our doors this week.

To help us christen our new store, John Starks came by to meet you! Starks was an NBA All-Star for the New York Knicks, the team he still holds the record for career three pointers made. Not only did John pose for photos and sign autographs, but he was kind enough to open a box of Mosaic basketball with our owner, Leighton. You can tell Starks really enjoyed ripping packs just like you and we do; he smiled the whole time!

We had the newest wax from all sports and non-sports including Pokémon, hot single cards, and iconic cards like Mickey Mantle and Michael Jordan rookie cards on-hand for you buy. You had the opportunity to see a historic collection of 800+ 1930's Goudey baseball cards that our sister company, {{cta('9c335468-d04c-4706-970a-92541739dbc9')}},discovered that includes 22 (yes, 22!) Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig cards. Our good friend, Darren Rovell, brought his AMAZING ticket collection for viewing, too.

A One of One Derek Jeter autographed card was pulled from Topps Archives during our live breaks for Daniel, and he was here at the grand opening for the break!. We had a huge pizza party thanks to Star Tavern pizza in Orange, NJ. A game of musical chairs broke out. Alex Giaimo and Jess from Bleecker Trading were here. Leighton and his son, Crosby, even stopped by the breakers' station while giving a tour to break-a-maniacs. like you, Mike, and Nick C. 

Here are some great shots from this special night:


Not all of the photos we took made it to this video, because what happens at Vintage Breaks stays at Vintage Breaks 😉 You'll have to come by the retail store today to see ALL the action in-person. Thank you again for making our grand opening a success. 

If you can't come to our new store, you can still find all of your sports cards needs on our site! Window shop 24/7 by clicking 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.

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!  

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.


If you have sealed wax, vintage or modern, that you are considering selling, contact us today to discuss or get our industry-leading purchase offer.  We're always interested in both sealed products of both sport and non-sport.  Whether you have that pack of 1977 Star Wars, that rare 1955 Bowman cello pack, a wax box of 1984 Topps football, Pokémon, or 2019 Panini National Treasures basketball you'd like to sell, we'd love to hear from you!


If you have any questions about a product, break, shipping, or even if you're interested in SELLING a collection, reach out any time!
