OUR STORY

528 Collectibles was officially established in 2020, but our legacy dates back to the early 90's.

 

As with any three brothers, when the oldest gets into a hobby, the younger brothers usually follow suit. It all started with collecting Baseball cards, and quickly expanded to Basketball, and Pokemon cards. If you could collect it, we started building our stacks. 

 

Nearly 30 years later, we’ve made a business out of our hobby and 528 Collectibles was born. Since our launch in 2020, our Instagram, Facebook, Twitch, and Youtube pages have continued to build followers and fans everyday.

 

Whether you want to buy specific cards from us, or take part in our nightly box breaks, our goal at 528 Collectibles is to continue to foster a platform where the new generation of card collectors can build their stacks too. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do we ship our product?
    The cards’ security is our top priority to our customers. We make sure to take the necessary precautions when handling the cards during and after the break. All rookie, colored prizm, serial numbered and special edition cards get plastic sleeves during the break. After the break, the cards get sorted and placed in bags based on the teams. We take the extra step to wrap the cards in cardboard and ship them in a protected bubble wrap envelope.
  • What is a Group Break?
    A group break is where people share a box or multiple boxes of cards by dividing up the product by team, player or some other method.
  • What am I getting when I purchase a group break slot?
    Purchasing a slot in a group break does not mean you are getting the entire box or case of cards. This is a group-break service where multiple people share the cost of a box, boxes, or case of cards. You will receive all cards from the team you purchase, or the random team you are assigned.

FAQ

HOW BREAKS WORK

A box break is when multiple people purchase a spot to help reduce the cost of the box or boxes. For example, in a Random Team Break, one spot equals one team so you are essentially purchasing one team in the break. Once the spots are filled, our breaker opens a sealed new box or case of cards on our livestream. Each slot holder’s cards from their teams within the break are distributed to them after the break.

There are several types of group breaks that we run on this site which cater to all types of collectors, so feel free to browse and choose whichever works best for you! Remember, your participation gets you every card pulled for your assigned/chosen team.

PICK YOUR TEAM BREAKS

These allow each collector to buy a single team from an entire box or case of cards. Teams are priced fairly based on the market demand for each team. This is the best option if you are looking for a certain player or a fan of a certain team.

RANDOM BREAKS

All teams found in a product are priced the same and randomly distributed. You are buying a guaranteed slot in a break, and a team is randomly assigned to you just before the product is opened. This is our personal favorite!

TEAM DRAFT BREAKS

All teams found in a product are priced the same and drafted just before the break begins. Draft order is randomized and each collector who bought in gets to pick a team.

HIT DRAFT BREAKS

All buy in slots are priced the same.  After the break is complete, we randomize all participants and you will draft from the pool of hits.

MIXERS

Sometimes instead of opening large quantities of a single product, it’s fun to mix it up! We combine boxes from a single sport that may be from multiple years or brands!
