Group Break Card Rules:

 

  • All hits pulled during the break will be shipped to the users address that purchased each specific team/spot.​
  • The card will go to the team listed first on the front, then back of the card, if no team is listed it will be the team of the jersey that is being worn by the player on the card.
  • If the player is a rookie and is pictured in their junior/college/international jersey etc…, it will go to the team that they started with that year of the product indicated in the auction. (eg. 09/10 Upper Deck ICE – the NHL team the player played for at the start of 2009/10 season or 2011/12 Certified – the NHL team the player played for at the start of 2011/12 season)
  • If a player is retired, and no jersey is worn or team specified, it will go to the team that the player played the most games for.
  • If a player played for a team that no longer exists, it will go to the team that they became. For example: Hartford Whalers would go to Carolina Hurricanes. (See list below)
  • If the player is in a international jersey (eg. TEAM CANADA/TEAM USA) it will go to the team that they started with that year of the product indicated in the auction. (if traded through out that year it goes to the team they started with that year.)
  • If a card has more than one player, each players team (eg. 4 player card - 2 Leafs, 1 Ducks, 1 Bruins...Leafs get 2 spots, Ducks 1 spot, Bruins 1 spot) will be listed  and random'd on random . 0rg - 2x 6 sided Dice will Determine the Number of Random's (has to equal 5 or more).
  • Teams or situations not listed will be drawn on random . 0rg website hitting the random button (Total between 2x 6 sided Dice has to equal 5 or more)  times in the final video (eg. Female international card -TEAM CANADA) or special insert card (eg. Fans of the game) etc…

Types of breaks

These are the standard formats and rules that we use for our group breaks.

Random Team Group Break Rules

  • After all spots are full for the break, names and teams are entered into a list randomizer
  • The lists will be randomized depending on the roll of 2x 6x Sided Dice the Total has to Equal 5 or More between the 2x Dice.   Once the lists have been randomized, both lists are copied onto a spreadsheet and matched by number.
  • Your name will be on the left column and your team will be on the right column.

 

Snake Draft Group Break Rules

  • After number of spots are determined and all spots are full for the break, names are entered into a list randomizer
  • The list will be randomized depending on the roll of a die. Once the lists have been randomized, the list is copied on to a spreadsheet.
  • Your name will be on the left column in the order in which you will draft your teams. The draft will be done snake draft style (Example: #1 – #15 then #15 – #1).
  • All hits, jerseys, patches, autographs, rookies, inserts and #d cards that come out for your team will be shipped to you.
  • If the break being done has teams that have been taken out before the random is done, anything that comes out for those teams will be randomized off to teams that go hitless

 

By The Hit Draft Group Break Rules

  • After the number of spots are determined and all spots are full for the break, names are entered into a list randomizer
  • The list will be randomized depending on the roll of a die. Once the lists have been randomized, the list is copied on to a spreadsheet.
  • Your name will be on the left column in the order in which you will draft your hits. The draft will be done snake draft style (Example: #1 – #15 then #15 – #1).
  • All the hits or cards you draft, jerseys, patches, autographs, rookies, inserts and #d cards will be shipped to you.
  • Any leftover cards that are not drafted will be randomized to everyone who participated in the break.

 

Team Draft break
You buy a “numbered spot” in a break
Usually a spot equals a team, so 32 spots (or less) in total are sold depending on sport (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, etc).
The evening of the break, we random (5x times or more with random.org) the spots numbers to determine the draft order selection
When its your turn, you select the team you want from the available teams remaining. 
If not live with us, you need to send a list in order of preference prior to the break or we’ll have to select for you
The team(s) you draft “sticks” with you for the entire break
The cards in the break of your team are sent to your address

 

Team Break

This is also referred to as "Pick Your Team" because you purchase the spot for a single team, receiving the cards for only that particular team. The PYT break is especially appealing for team collectors since you are paying a fraction of the cost for hobby cards and not dealing with the unwanted cards from your rival team or teams. Because some teams have more cards in a particular set, or simply better players, individual team prices can fluctuate a decent amount.

Other Group Break Rules

  • During the hosted breaks, there will be plenty of time to trade teams amongst each other or trade for the teams that are out of the break.
  • You can also sell your team before the break begins to another person, as long as you can come to terms with the deal.
  • Both trades and sales must be confirmed to the group break host.
  • When a card is pulled that has multiple players on it, it gets randomized at the end of the break between the teams on the card that are in the break.
  • Although highly recommended, you do not have to be present to participate in a live break. All breaks are archived on our website and may be viewed at a later date.
  • Many breaks are filled before the actual break date. Please sign up for or email newsletter in order to get the most up-to-the-minute information. You may also want to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for information and special contests and promotions.
  • Sports Card Collective reserves the right to expel and if need be, ban an individual from the site. No foul language, harassment or bullying of anyone in the live chat will be tolerated at any time. In order to make the process a pleasant one for all, please use good judgment and abide by the rules.
  • By purchasing a slot or team in a group break, you are acknowledging that there is no guarantee that you will receive any particular card, or cards for your slotted team, or teams.
