BOX & CASE BREAK RULES

Definitions

  1. Breaker: A breaker is a host of a break.
  1. Break: The card pulling event, also known as box or case breaks.
  1. Trading time:
  1. Spot purchaser

For every box or case break, we will provide a break description which includes but is not limited to the following details:

  1. Product information from the product sell sheet
  2. Number of spots available in the break
  3. Whether the base cards will be shipped or not
  4. Other useful information relevant in making purchase decisions

 

  1. BREAK SCHEDULE

Please be aware that the dates appearing on the Break Schedule calendar are subject to change. Please always check the Break Schedule for the latest updates about any delays in product releases as it is updated constantly. Note that we will not know of any product delays ahead of the general public. While every effort is made to ensure that the breaks run as scheduled, some breaks may end later than originally planned. All times in the Break Schedule, unless noted otherwise, are in Eastern US Standard Time.

  1. BROADCASTS

We stream our live breaks and upload recorded breaks via our YouTube™ channel.

(Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/bigleaguecards

Livestream: https://www.youtube.com/c/bigleaguecards/live )

After a live stream for a given break night ends, we will make the entire live stream available to you as an archived video. Individual breaks and randoms for breaks are also found in the “Uploads” section of our channel.

  1. OUR LIVE BREAKS

When you purchase a spot or team from us for one of our breaks, you will receive cards from the team you selected or are given as part of a randomized result via random.org or other alternative randomizer services such as PsychicScience.org, instead of receiving a sealed box or case of unopened product.

  • Conducts during Live Broadcasts

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion or determination, to select or to dismiss people from our YouTube™ channel during the live broadcast without notice, regardless of whether you are in the break or not. It is our policy to foster a safe, enjoyable, and fun environment for all those who participate in the break. Abusive, foul, or threatening language or behavior including but not limited to harassment and intimidation directed toward the break participants is a violation of this Terms of Use and will not be tolerated.

  • Types of Break

 

  1. Pick Your Team

We may offer a “Pick Your Team” type of break when a new product is released. In a “Pick Your Team” break, you can purchase the team(s) of your choosing provided they are still available to be purchased.

  1. Price The prices for participating in “Pick Your Team” break, are calculated based on the probability for hits for each team as listed in the product checklists.

No Purchase Necessary Code

If requested, we can provide you with No Purchase Necessary code that the card manufacturers provide on the same products that we open during the break. Please email any NPN code requests to BigLeagueBreaks@Gmail.com.

**While attendance in the live break is required to receive your cards, it is however recommended to do so for sheer fun and excitement of the break.

  1. Random Team

In “Random Team” breaks, all participants will receive a random team.

When we list a product, we will let you know in the break description, how many spots there are in the break. This is noted as we have found that some teams have very few or no hits in a product. If we do get the product checklist and find that a team has no hits, we will throw that team out. If any hits are then pulled for this team, we will randomize that hit to all HITLESS teams at the end of the break (Due to scheduling, we will hold randoms of this nature, the following day, if this is the case, we will tell you this during our live feed).

We may also, based on the product checklist, combine teams to give you a better chance at getting a hit in the break.

  1. Random Team style breaks

Step One: DICE ROLL

We will roll the dice, using either Random.org’s dice roller or physical dice, to determine the number of times that we will randomize the list of spot purchasers’ names. We use a legal and SSL Verified version of Random.org. Claims against us using anything other than a legal version of this will not be taken lightly. We will re-roll if it is anything less than three.

Step Two: SPOT PURCHASER LISTING

We will then list all the names of spot purchasers in the Random.org list randomizer and randomize this list based on the number derived from Step One.

 

Step Three: TEAM LISTING

We will then list out all of the team names (a full list, or a list with combinations of teams, or with some teams deleted; please read break description.) in another Random.org list randomizer and randomize this list based on the number derived from Step One.

 

Step Four: MERGE LISTING

The spot purchaser list and team list are then placed next to each other in a Microsoft Excel® spreadsheet to be displayed on the screen as the breaker read the results aloud.

Step Five: RECORDING END

The recording of the randomization process will then end and we will upload it to our YouTube™ channel where it will be available in our video tab. Due to the time required to process the video and upload, you may need to wait several minutes before the video becomes available.

 

Step Six: TRADING TIME

For those who are in the break and watching live, we will provide trading time to trade teams. Set by the breaker, the trading time can last between a minute and five minutes. Once the trading time elapses, all trades will go through subject to step six below.

Step Six: EMAIL CONFIRMATION

Owners must email BigLeagueBreaks@Gmail.com to confirm trades using ONLY the email address you have registered with on our Site, or the one you used in your PayPal™ payment. We will CANCEL any trade if it is from an email address that we do not recognize.

*We reserve the right to void any oral trade agreement made in our chat rooms if we suspect or have a reason to suspect that there was any wrongdoing or foul play. We will supply proof of said wrongdoing such as screenshots if necessary.

Step Seven: FINAL LIST POSTED

The final list of team names to spot purchaser names will then be posted in the Blog section of our Website using the name of the break as the title.

 

Step Eight: BREAK BEGINS

The recording will resume again as we introduce and begin the break.

  1. Hit Draft Break

Step One: DICE ROLL

Using the Random.org dice roller, or a physical pair of dice, we will roll to determine the number of times the list of spot purchasers’ names get randomized. If we roll anything less than 3, on the die or dice, we will re-roll.

Step Two: SPOT PURCHASER LISTING

We will then list out all the spot purchasers’ names in Random.org list randomizer (there are instances where we may need to use a different online randomizer like PsychicScience.org) and randomize this list, the number of times the dice determined in step 1.

STEP: MERGE LISTS

The results are then placed in a Microsoft Excel® spreadsheet next to each other and are displayed on the screen as the breaker read the results aloud.

Step: RECORDING END

The recording of the break will end and we will upload the recording to YouTube™ where it will be available in our video tab. Due to the time needed to process the video and upload, you may need to wait several minutes before the video becomes available.

 

STEP: TRADING TIME

For those who are in the break and watching live, we will provide trading time for them to trade teams. Set by the breaker, the trading time can last between a minute and five minutes. Once the trading time elapses, all trades will go through confirmation provided all participants have each emailed us at BigLeagueBreaks@gmail.com to confirm the trade.

*We reserve the right to void any oral agreement made in our chat rooms if we have a reason to suspect that there was any wrongdoing or foul play. We will supply proof of said wrongdoing such as screenshots if necessary.

Step Eight: BREAK BEGINS

The recording will start again as we initiate the break. We will open all the boxes and all the cards will be displayed on camera or we will hold them up for you to help you make your draft decision. To make this process smoother, we suggest you to take a note of the cards and card information as the break happens.

Step Nine: DRAFT DECISION

After all the boxes are opened and all the cards are shown, the recording will stop once again and the draft will start. We will inform you who is on the clock first. Each person will be given exactly 3 minutes to make their pick.

SNAKE-SYTLE DRAFT ONLY

For a snake-style draft, the order will go 1-end of list then end of list-1. This will continue until all the cards are picked. We may at times get more or less than the expected number of hits. If this happens, we will determine what is the fairest way to move forward with the hit draft.

If there is a greater number of expected hits, we will randomize the extra hit to all of those in the break, or provide it as a bonus hit to the spot with the worst hit as determined by Big League Breaks.

If there are fewer than the number of expected hits, we will work with those that did not receive the prescribed number of hits to get a replacement hit to them. The hit sent out could be a card of their favorite player or team. Big League Cards will work with you to make sure you are happy.

No Purchase Necessary Code

If requested, we can provide you with No Purchase Necessary code that the card manufacturers provide on the same products that we open during the break. Please email any NPN code requests to BigLeagueBreaks@Gmail.com.

 

  1. Multiplayer Cards

For multiplayer cards, we will go by majority rule, that is if one person owns MORE than fifty percent of a card (2 out of 3 teams/players, 3 out of 5 and so on) the card will go to that person. Otherwise, using a Random.org dice roller, or physical dice, we will roll to determine the number of times that the list of teams or owner names will get randomized. We will reroll if we roll anything less than 3 on the die or dice. We will then use this number to determine how many times a list of whoever has a player/team on the card will be randomized. After the final randomization, the person whose name is on top will receive the card.

  1. PERSONAL BOX BREAKS

For a personal box break, you will receive all of the cards from your break unless noted otherwise in the product description. The fees for personal box breaks may vary because sometimes the product may be base heavy, resulting in a higher shipping fee. We may charge you for the higher fees if you request all of your cards. If you chose not to receive all of the cards, there is an option to donate your base cards to our local softball or baseball league, rather than to ship you the base cards. We also can ship anything we have in stock as a sealed box or case! Just let us know that you want it shipped as sealed and we will happily do so!

YOU WILL ALWAYS RECEIVE YOUR HITS, PARALLELS, INSERTS, NUMBERED CARDS, AND SHORTPRINTS.
