    A few questions about case breaks

    First, I'm pretty new so if I put this in the wrong spot, my apologies. Someone let me know and I'll delete and start a new thread in the correct area.

    So I'm thinking about getting involved in my first case break and thought it might be a good idea to inquire with the board on what some do's and don't's might be. The whole process seems fishy to me but they're extremely popular and a lot of people do them so I assume they must be on the up-and-up.

    Are there any red flags to look for from breakers? At this point, I've just searched ebay for some so not sure what I should be looking for.

    Are there known/trusted sellers that someone could point me toward?

    Many thanks for any help.

    I only use one breaker and he is on this site, [MENTION=1816]All In Cards[/MENTION] is his handle. I would trust him holding a million dollars for me / thread.

    I use only a couple and can definitely can recommend Andrew [MENTION=1816]All In Cards[/MENTION].

    I can also recommend (via PM if interested) a low-end guy too, since sometimes full Cases are a little pricey to get into...

    Mind if I pick your brain on this? I kind of assumed this would be a high-risk ebay proposition, which is why I started the thread. How do some ebay sellers rip breakers off? Fudge the video? Not send the cards? Again, thanks for all the feedback everyone.

    Yes, I have seen everything from people faking videos by putting up dead cases which where already broken and resealed to people taking the cards out of the cameras view and hits disappeared. I have seen shill bidding where they bid up their own items and I have seen them bid on their own items so they can get the big hit they already know is in the case.

    I can literally go on and on.

    Fire Hand Cards are a lot of fun to do group breaks with and they've been around for years. Chad does the majority of the breaks and Irv is the Monday night host. I've never had an issue, they are really quick shipping cards out and their prices are equal to or lower than anyone.

    not all ebay breakers are bad, just ask around if you see a break you might want to get in, as this place is great for information.

    I currently have an ebay break that is ending tonight, 2013 Bowman Sterling - https://www.ebay.com/sch/allincards/m...p2047675.l2562

    I think I would add to the discussion make sure they send you everything from the break. I hear some breakers just send hits, other send the hits plus inserts and base. If they just send hits, they are likely lining their pockets beyond slot revenue by selling team base sets and insert sets.

    You might as well make sure they send you everything so you can partially offset the cost of the slot by selling off base team sets and inserts.

    Agree 100% on this one. I see tons of breaks, especially Bowman Draft where all you get are the refactors on up. So the breaker is keeping the paper and base chrome.

    Thanks to everyone for their feedback. [MENTION=1816]All In Cards[/MENTION], I signed up for your BDPP break.

    Was thinking about taking a stab at this break. Anyone spot anything funky?
