Opening Vintage Topps Packs and Hearing Stories with Former Phillies Closer Mitch Wild Thing Williams [VIDEO]

Former big league closer, Mitch "Wild Thing" Williams sat down with our owner, Leighton Sheldon, to open vintage wax packs, tell us some old stories and even owning up to what you know him best for: losing the 1993 World Series for the Phillies.

While at the Philadelphia card show in Valley Forge we had the chance to open packs of cards and have a conversation with Mitch "Wild Thing" Williams.  

After giving Mitch the choice of opening a baseball card pack from 1985 in search of a Roger Clemens rookie or 1983 Topps baseball card pack that may hold a rookie card from friend of the show, Wade Boggs, Williams quickly opted for the '83 because he liked to throw up and in at Boggs 🤣

Watch the video below to see not just which cards came out of the packs, but to hear a few cool stories about Mitch's career and memories he has of other players.  Leighton also ask Wild Thing about a unique baseball record of his, and believe it or not - Mitch talks about blowing the 1993 World Series.




"Fill out your complaint forms and leave them right here."  Amazing!  Glad Mitch can joke a little about blowing a World Series; that can't be easy.


We have done celebrity and athlete pack breaks before that YOU got to be in on.  Perhaps Dominque Wilkins could pull a card of his for you!  How about Dale Murphy and even Gary V getting in on the breaking action.  Keep an eye on our blogs here and our website for the next special event athlete break so one of these stars can pull your cards! 

Seven days a week, we're opening packs for you. We have unopened packs from the 1950's through the latest products that just got released.  We can offer you breaks in all sports, and even non-sports, too.   Original, sealed packs of Garbage Pail Kids or Star Wars up your alley? Those are on the site!  Start window shopping HERE.


Vintage Breaks offers THE BEST VALUE IN BREAKING.

When you check out for a spot 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?  Social distancing has made that hard, too. 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!  Get our breaking schedule HERE.
