Topps Heritage a breath of fresh air

Word up,

Yesterday i had the opportunity to pick up a couple of boxes of Topps Heritage.

After much anticipation I got together with a good friend from Denver, J.C.F.

**06/08 Edit**

He runs his own blog called Tulo Trader, where you can check out his growing Troy Tulowitzki collection as well as other Rockies favorites and blasts from the past.


On a side note I would like to mention "Cardma". Its something that i truly believe in. If you give cards away, cards and hits will come back to you in return.

As we broke open our first packs I started to realize how great of a set this is. Short prints in every pack, old school inserts, chrome refractors, returned 1959 topps, old and new autos, well done relics, and team checklists that i feel are far superior to '08 Upper Deck.

mentionables that i can remember: A grip of Rockies which will go straight into my collection, a tommy carrol auto, and a great i-rod chrome.

Scans will be up tomorrow night and if the addictions is right another bit of cards.

along with some side notes about what i don't like.. (would finish now but i have company)

Happy Breaking

Welcome to Wax Breaker

Hello Collectors,

Welcome to Wax Breaker! A brand new sport card collecting site just in time for all the fresh 2008 wax...

I'm a first time collector of sport cards and would like to share as much of my wax breaking joy with you as possible...

Expect to see many updates this month including: My first box break(with scans of the keepers), trade/want lists, worthless packs of the week and much much more.

Feel free to leave some comments once things get rolling. Please remember: that I'm a rookie at this so try not to tear me a new one write off the bat.
