I’ve been breaking with Crackin’ Wax for several years now and have only missed one of his breaks since starting. Chris goes out of his way to make sure everyone that buys into his breaks has a good time. He is good at breaking, keeps everything on-screen and is up front with everything.

One thing that sets Crackin’ Wax apart is the fact that all his breaks are for charity. He’s raised thousands of dollars for a variety of charities and is still going strong. I’m never disappointed with one of his breaks and look forward to many more.

Anyone that has been involved with Crackin Wax breaks knows that everything is top notch. I’ve been breaking with them for years and not only are they professional and knowledgeable, but also wonderful people. Pricing is extremely competitive, shipping is the fastest I’ve ever experienced, and the great banter between Chris and Amy make the whole experience a pleasure. But the most important thing is it’s all for a good cause and they have raised thousands of dollars for numerous great charities. Breaks sell out fast, I encourage you to give them a try if you haven’t already!

I love breaking with Chris and Literal Quirk! The fastest and most reliable shipping of anyone out there. Breaks are usually on Saturday and I have my cards by Tuesday. Also enjoy the fact that money is going to worthy charities for each break.

I have never been disappointed by one of these breaks.

Chris and LQ are great to break with. Fast shipping, giving money to charity, and not obnoxious frat-boy wannabes going on and on about “sick hits” and garbage like that. They are collectors and that matters.

I have been breaking with Topher & Literal Quirk for the past few years, and you will not find better people in the hobby.

Ensuring their breakers are entertained & satisfied is their #1 priority. With each and every break, a donation is made to a chosen charity (March of Dimes, Boys & Girls Club, etc).

Cards are usually shipped in 1 business day.

I have seen the popularity of their breaks increase with each new one. Main reason- because the people behind the breaks are simply the best!

First time breaking with Crackin’ Wax. The break was entertaining and great care was made to ensure that you could see everything going on with the cards. The cards arrived quickly and securely packaged. Definitely worth it.

I’ve been getting in on these case breaks for a couple years and they have yet to disappoint.

I’m always entertained and I usually end up with a hit. Which is completely awesome.

Chris and Amy put on a good show. The banter between the two is entertaining making the break a great experience.

The fact that Crackin?۪ Wax breaks are for charity is another reason I support these him. He?۪s raised thousands of dollars for a variety of charities. I?۪ve never disappointed with one of his breaks.

The sorting of the cards and packaging is on point.

Once I get my cards it is so easy to put them away in the PC.

Keep Crackin’ that Wax.

I have done breaks with Crackin’ Wax for a few years now. Prices are always great, and many breaks are for charity. The breaks themselves are always fun and entertaining. Shipping is fast and everything is packed well and arrives safe.

Give them a try, you won’t regret it!

If your looking for a breaker who loves the sport of Baseball and card collecting as much as you do, get into one of Crackin’ Wax’s breaks! Team’s go fast so get on his email list pronto so you’ll know when breaks go on sale. Pricing is the best around and a portion of most of his breaks are donated to charity. Watch the break live or later on YouTube and you’ll enjoy the lively banter between Chris and his lovely wife (and sorter) Amy! The amount of care they put in sorting and shipping your cards will blow you away!

When you break with Crackin’ Wax…you break with one of the BEST!

I am always entertained and never disappointed in Crackin’ Wax breaks. I don’t always walk away with the hit of the break, but I am always entertained and get my money’s worth. He and his wife make a great team and I will often times watch the breaks, even if I didn’t get my team. The charity breaks are the best and I know CW’s using his platform to make a difference. Go get in some CW breaks. You will be glad you did.

I have been “breaking” with Crackin’ Wax for 2 years mainly for my beloved Pirates collection and never been disappointed – from a pure customer service standpoint, CW is solid, timely, delivers the cards immediately following a break by investing the time to organize, sort, package and mail within a day or two. There is lots of fun, total transparency and integrity in CW’s approach to the breaks. I also appreciate the CW has a strong social conscious and raises $ for local charities in the Minneapolis area. You can’t go wrong with CW if you want to invest in good cards and a reliable service.

Chris and LQ are top notch! They are witty, entertaining, and most importantly, two of the most caring individuals you’ll come across in the industry. When you’re in their breaks, you aren’t just a customer, but a guest in their home, and that’s how you truly feel.

You won’t find a better breaker that does more for others than these two right here.

Crackin Wax provides a great breaking experience! Chris clearly enjoys hosting the breaks and he always makes them a lot of fun. He gets just as excited as I do when he pulls a big hit and his banter with his wife LQ is always fun. Even when I don’t get a good card pulled for me, I still leave the break having enjoyed the experience! Crackin Wax offers great loyalty programs like Wax Bucks and monthly free box breaks. He ships very quickly and everything is well protected during shipping. My oldest son and I love everything about Crackin Wax and once my other two sons are old enough to enjoy the hobby, I plan on introducing them to the best breaker there is, Crackin Wax. Keep crackin that wax!

Thanks for the review, Alex! I know it can be a pain to find places in the U.S. who will ship to Canada, so I am very thankful that you’ve been joining our breaks!

I started out looking for a place to trade cards and stumbled on Chris and LQ. I really enjoy their banter and the fact that they break boxes for charity is my favorite part. I’ll keep coming back to join their breaks whenever I can.

There is not a single breaker better out there. Chris takes his time and make sure everybody knows EVERY CARD (even veteran base cards) they are getting on the Wednesday/Thursday after the break (depending on where you live and if USPS runs timely), makes sure all the cards ship carefully, cares about getting the cards out the next business day after the breaks (not a single breaker I’ve ever done a break with does this), created a great chat room community, and donates most profits from most cases to a charity. If you try one of his breaks, you will have the time of your life and start joining on many of his breaks like I do.

I don’t know what good things to say that hasn’t been said already and FYI there is no negative things. If you’re looking to join a case break then Crackin Wax is the way to go! It’s easy to buy your teams from his website and you get your cards super fast after the break. And you can earn Wax Bucks to use towards future breaks. The best part is the video break itself, Chris & LQ do a fantastic job & they are top notch in case breaks. They are great people too! You won’t be sorry if you join a break & I’m pretty sure you’ll join another, I did.

Come for baseball breaks…..stay for the witty banter between Chris and LQ.

I’ve been breaking with Crackin’ Wax for a few months and have never been disappointed. They have some of the best prices in the business, and with those prices, you also get skunk protection with free box break entries for hitless spots and packs of cards for cardless spots. Chris works really hard to provide a wide variety of products, and always makes sure everyone is having a good time. One of my favorite things about CW is that I can tell they really enjoy breaking, and that’s it’s not just about making a profit for them.

I know there’s already been a lot of positive feedback posted here already, but I just wanted to post my two cents because I really can’t recommend Crackin’ Wax enough!

CRACKINWAX is an amazing Breaker. Both Chris and LQ are knowledgeable, honest above reproach, affordable and downright fun. They do more breaks for charity than any other Breaker. They have the fastest mail on cards won than any other Site. I enjoy breaking with them and have “won” some great cards

Crackin Wax is a fun and entertaining place to experience the breaker culture. Chris does an excellent job at letting his clients know what’s going on and is very open to questions from new people. The cards I have hit from the Breaks are shipped quickly and are packaged well to not damage the cards. If you haven’t participated in card breaking before, you’ll enjoy the experience at Crackin Wax.

I started breaking with Christopher in March of 2020 after 2 months I can say for sure he does things the right way. Nearly every break is a pick one get one so you get 2 teams. The prices are very fair and he takes care any buyer who goes hit less. The lure is always good entertainment and banter between Christopher and his customers. Crackin Wax has created a very comfortable, knowledgeable, welcoming community. Anyone looking to take pets in breaks should start here

Crackin Wax is a top tier breaker and brings joy to this hobby! Each break allows everyone a chance and there is a sense that you are not wasting time or money. I actually really enjoy the fact that the focus is on three nights and the breaks happen at a reasonable time of the night. You can sense a small community is being built each night and everyone enjoys the breaks. Chris a great host/breaker and really takes the time to make everyone feel welcome. The products have a great variety, the prices are very reasonable, and they make sure you don’t walk away with nothing after each break. And wait…he gives a portion of this to charity!
