If you want to see some box breaks with a twist, check out the Burger King’s box breaks. This guy busts box after box of high-end stuff and gets completely shafted every time, but he has a good sense of humor about it (with some naughty language).

Recently he put up a signed photo of himself on eBay to ease the pain of his latest Exquisite Box Break and it sold for $25!!!! I guess this guy has a real following of sympathetic viewers.

It’s even numbered 1/1. Anyways, check out his vids for a good laugh and if you are feeling sorry for him paypal him some spare change.

You know the drill. Here’s the 07-08 UD Black Basketball Video Box Breaks on youtube. List will be updated every so often.

I must say, I feel the urge to go out and get one of these boxes even though I got burned by UD Black Baseball. The Basketball version looks slightly better, even though its still loaded with no-name rookies and semi-scrubs.

I Call BS!!!! Beckett Exquisite Football Box Break

Check out Beckett’s 2007 Exquisite Football Box Break. They bust two boxes and pull basically the two nicest cards in the entire checklist.

2007 UD Exquisite Football Break from Beckett Media LP on Vimeo.

I understand that UD wants to create buzz and show off their cooler cards, but is it really necessary to make it so blatant?? For those keeping track at home thats three 1 of 1’s, a quad patch auto, and a dual cut signature in two boxes…

Now Topps is also guilty of sending loaded boxes to Beckett to open on their box breaks. A while back they busted 2007 Topps Sterling Baseball and pulled a Joe Dimaggio Cut Auto.

Leave some hits for the collectors!!!!

Exquisite Box Breaks!

2007 Exquisite Football is hot off the presses. In case you didn’t know, Exquisite Football is like the Rolls Royce of football products. Since I can’t afford to buy a box myself, I figured the least I could do is compile a list of the breaks on youtube so you can see what it’s all about. If you see a card you like, check the eBay links. They might be up for sale right now.

2007 National Treasures Cut Autos

I found this video by Donruss TV showing some of the Cut Autos from 2007 National Treasures Football. These are the big money cards from a super high-end product. Some of the subjects include Football Hall of Famers, Boxing Legends, former Presidents, and entertainers. Most of the lower numbered cards should sell for over $1,000 a pop.

Another box break for your viewing pleasure:

Much better than my previous debacle of a box break.

My regular readers (all 3 of you) know by now that I’m pretty obsessed with Topps Sterling. Exhibit A and Exhibit B (Exhibits C,D,E and F coming soon!). So I finally decided to put my money where my mouth is and pick up a box.
