What is card breaking?
Over the last several years, sports card breaking has become an important part of the hobby for its emphasis on socializing the hobby, being a cost-effective way to enjoy more expensive products, and just being a lot of fun.
So what exactly is card breaking?
In its most simple definition, card breaking is opening up a case, box or pack of cards. But in its most popular and most commonly used form, including probably why you are here, “Card breaking” or “card breaks” refers to when a company or individual purchases a product (such as a sealed box or case of cards), sells parts of the break to collectors and then ships the cards that each collector hit during the break.
Oftentimes, breaks are sold to collectors according to teams, meaning that for a price, you will receive a specific team during the break, which you can either buy specifically or at random (terms and conditions will vary based on the break and the breaker).
During the break, the breaker will stream the opening of the product live, so that all participants and viewers can watch, sweat, and discuss the action in real-time. And of course, fawn over the cards being pulled and opine about how lucky a particular break participant is.
After the break, all cards that you pulled will be shipped to you. For instance, if you had the Minnesota Twins during a break, would you receive all cards from Minnesota Twins players pulled during the break.

How can I buy in to a CardLines break?
Breaks can be purchased directly from CardLines by going to the page of the break (links at the top of the page). Note that all break sales are final — no refunds or returns.
How will breaks be divided?
Unless specified otherwise by the break terms and conditions, breaks will be divided by specific teams and randomized before the start of the break during the live stream.
Names and slots will be randomized through Random.org.
What is a PYT or Pick Your Team Break?
A “PYT” or Pick Your Team break is one of the more popular types of card breaks. With this type of break, participants will get the opportunity to select a specific team before the break.
Unlike the set flat prices for random breaks, PYT breaks typically have variable costs based on the desirability of the team. For example, purchasing a PYT of the New York Yankees is going to typically be more expensive than say, the Baltimore Orioles.
What is a Random break?
With a random break, participants in the break will purchase a random slot in the break. Then at the beginning of the break, all slots will be randomized, often by team.
What happens if a card includes players from multiple teams?
If a card is pulled consisting of two or more players from multiple teams, we will use Random.org to determine the owner of the card.
What happens if a break is not filled?
Should a CardLines sports card break not sell out, we will delay the start of a break until a time that the break can be filled.
How long will it take to receive my cards?
CardLines.com will aim to ship cards out the next business day after a break.
