Welcome to the First Annual Crackin’ Wax Holiday Gift Exchange! This will work something like a Secret Santa except I’ll be using to assign gift-givers to giftees. A form has been provided for you to enter your information which will be shared with your selected gift-giver and, vice versa, your giftee’s info will be shared with you.

There will be NO spending minimum (you may have something in your PC that your giftee would like)
There will be NO spending limit (who am I to stifle your generosity?)
Sign-ups end at 11:59pm Central 11/30/2012
Participants will be notified of their giftees’ information on or after 12/1/2012
Gifts should be sent before 1/1/2013
Once you’ve received your gift from your gift-giver, please share it on Crackin' Wax
I am keeping a list of all participants and their information
I will not be participating–I’ll know who my gift-giver is and that’s just no fun

Feel free to be as creative as you like. Don’t feel like you absolutely must stick to your giftee’s wish list. If your giftee has a blog, visit it and find out more about him/her.

Want to join in on the fun? All you need to do is go to the Holiday Gift Exchange tab on the Crackin’ Wax Facebook page and fill out the provided form. That’s it!

Crackin' Wax's Topps '13 S1 Jumbo Case Break Raffle

I'm doing my first ever Case Break! This one is going to be a doozy. I’m going to be cracking into a brand new jumbo case of 2013 Topps S1–but things are going to be just a little bit different. Not only is this going to be a traditional case break divided into team slots, I’m also going to be giving away one of the jumbo boxes from the case!

All cards from five of the six boxes will be used for the case break. You pick the team slot(s) you would like, pay for your slot(s), and I send you your new cards after the break! Along with your paid slot(s), you will also receive one free raffle slot for each team slot you purchase. After all team slots have been filled, raffle slots will be open to the general public for a $5 donation per raffle slot. The raffle slots are unlimited, so you are allowed to request as many as you wish after all team slots have been filled!

After all of the team slots have been filled, all post-fee PayPal donations* made for requested raffle slots will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation! That means that for just a measly $5 you could score an entire freshly sealed jumbo box of Topps ’13 S1 AND you’d be helping out an amazing cause!

For more information and to sign up, just visit the Topps ’13 S1 Jumbo Case Break Raffle page at Crackin' Wax. Hurry up, though! Your team(s) might not be available for long!

*Donations will be paid through PayPal via Crackin’ Wax. PayPal charges a fee of approximately $0.45 for every $5 donation, therefor approximately $4.55 of your $5 donation will be sent to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

2012 Bowman Platinum Double Box Group Break

The first group break at Crackin' Wax (which was also played as a BoBuBingo) was AWESOME and was a LOT of fun! That's why I couldn't wait to get onto the next group break. 


Yep! 2012 Bowman Platinum! Interesting choice, I know. I liked the look of the product so much last year that I thought I'd give it another spin this year, and I'd like all of YOU to get in on it! 

Oh, and look, Twins fans! It's a Minnesota Twin on the sell sheet! (Pssst... it's Miguel Sano) 

So, what's so special about BP this year? It features a modest base card set of 100 subjects including all of the biggest stars from each team as well as a prospect set of 100 current and up-and-coming rookies. 

Parallels are there, too, and are right in the goldilocks zone--not too many, to too few.
There are autographs abound as well--many of them on-card! Some of the auto'd features in this set include Purely Platinum--a metallic card signed in gold--and a continuation of the intense Bowman Black. 

Of course, the big "get" in this year's installment of BP is the 1-of-1 Bryce Harper "Mondo" bat barrel card. 

Sound interesting? Then you'll want to get in on this double box group break. All the details on the break and how to sign up can be found at Crackin' Wax

And for those of you who missed out on the last break, look what we pulled!

JABOs Box Break #11

I'm back to box breaking fun!

For Box Break #11 let's open:

(1) box of 2003 Upper Deck Prospects Premiere
(1) box of 2006 Artifacts
(1) box of 2009 Topps Unique

BREAK NOTE: As I have seen in other box breaks, duplicate base cards will be distributed evenly across participants unless you state otherwise.  So, you will get one of each base card pulled for your teams and your duplicates will be "traded" for duplicates from other teams.  Questions? Please ask!  Thanks!
