What do you need to do? Buy a spot in the '52 Topps break, and put a note in under "Order Notes" during checkout. If you forget, shoot me an email. (Also, I'll email you confirmation of the donation after it's made.)

Refer-a-Friend Special

If you refer a friend to who buys into the '52 Topps break, have them note it in the "Order Notes" section, and I'll send you a coupon for $5 off a set break of your choice.

Any questions? Shoot me an email at burl@burlssports.com

Don't forget to grab your spot in the 1952 Topps break!

Who won the free slot?
Surprised to see only 50 slots sold in the past week. Looks like there are bulk slot discounts on the website for those still interested in trying to win a Mantle, Mays, Robinson, Mathews, etc.

Thanks, guys! I'm a bit surprised, too. Multi-spot discounts are available (details in listing). I'd consider steeper discounts if you're looking at 50+ spots in an effort to sell them all.

Break is set for Sunday evening, though, even if I take the remaining spots myself.

Thanks to everyone who has bought in, and thank you for your patience.

Link to break

P.S. David Hubble won the free spot in the break!

I didn't realize how risky this is hahaha. Thanks god I got 2 highs with my 2 spots, but I saw people with 20 slots get nada. Definitely was a thrill, but I would have been tight with 2 commons for 160 haha

A few observations by someone who does not take part in these. I think people running these should be required to disclose their margin on the set. What looks like a good deal is probably anything but. Second, if you want to give to charity do it yourself. The guy running a break, or an eBay sale...., makes it seem like altruism on their part--it's just a way to get you to spend.

This is the first one I've been in, but I've followed a couple of others.

Just out of curiosity, why should I care what his margin is? I'm going into this with the assumption- and even hope- that he's making a profit providing this service, or I'm guessing these breaks wouldn't continue. The cards available are fully disclosed, as is the price per slot. I can use the provided info to judge whether I find value in participating or not.

As far as the charity thing goes, that's actually a turn off for me- I donate to charities (one of which is coincidentally one of the choices he had), but I prefer to keep business and charitable contributions separate. Don't get me started on the stores that constantly ask/pressure you to donate at the register. Give me a $5 break on the price and I'll decide what to do with the savings on my own.
