What Is a Basketball Box Break?

Basketball box breaks are a live online event where buyers purchase “spots” from the breaker (the seller) to obtain high-value sports cards. The breaker opens the box, and packages live in front of the online audience. Once the event is over, the cards are shipped out to the buyers.

Box breaking involves chance, meaning you are not guaranteed a rare or valuable card (i.e., a #bighittie or case hit) when you participate. Box breaking harnesses the power of group buying. If you participate in a box break, you will typically pay a fraction of the price vs. buying a complete box full of sports cards. This lowers your cost and increases your chances of hitting it big.

You see the breaker (the seller) and the users (the buyers) in the image below. In box breaking, there is typically only one breaker and multiple buyers who purchase spots in the break. Each spot can cost anywhere from $25-$335, depending on the breaking method. There are multiple methods of breaking to choose from. Some common ones are Random Team, Pick Your Team, and Pick Your Price.

In a Pick Your Team break, you pick one team or several teams. When the break is live, you’ll receive every card pulled for the team(s) chosen. Pricing typically depends on the team’s strength on the checklist.
