TCC WACKY WAXBUSTIN' WEEKEND!

The first ever Wacky Waxbustin' Weekend is coming this spring! clapping.gif

What is it, you might ask? The fundamental right of mankind is freedom, and so too for trading cards! Cards the world over are imprisoned in waxy, paper, or foil wrappers and then hidden away in cardboard boxes sealed in shrink wrap! Who knows how long some of these innocent cards have been locked away, having not once seen the light of day since their birth during mass production. Our mission? Bust 'em out! ph34r.gif

Want to participate? Participation is easy. Buy a box of cards - any box - and bust it open on April 3 and 4, 2010. Once opened, you must share the contents of the box with the rest of the Waxbustin' Weekenders in a special thread dedicated to the event. Tell us where you got it, why, and what you think about it. Share with us and we share with you! We're in this together... For the cardboard! And freedom!

Can you do this live? It might be easier you keep your box breaks contained within a single post, so as not to confuse the other people who may be busting boxes at that time. However, there may be a defined schedule once the event nears so that we can dedicate a certain time period to LIVE breaks. Stay tuned!

What about video breaks? Not a problem. Record it and post it with a summary! In fact, it might be fun to see some people on camera who haven't been before! It's up to you!

How many boxes can you bust? As many as your heart desires and your wallet can afford. We aren't going to limit people on what they can open, nor how much. You wanna open a blaster box? Go for it. A case of Heritage? More power to ya. Some Exquisite? Bring it on. boxing.gif

Is this just sports? New stuff? You can open a box of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from 1990, you can open 2010 Topps Baseball, or even a box of Magic: The Gathering cards. Hobby, retail, both. Sports, non-sports, gaming, all of the above. There's only one rule: Sealed box of packs of cards.

Do you have to announce what you're opening before the weekend or can it be a surprise? Up to you! biggrin.gif

Please remember! This is not a competition, it's about having fun!

My sincere hope is that many of you will participate and that all of you will support our first Wacky Waxbustin' Weekend! A success will bring more events such as this to Trading Card Central!

Comments, questions? This is the place to ask. smile.gif

I have a question: I like the wax wombat have a very hard time keeping unopened wax (boxes) in my house without getting the urge to just rip into them, so how do I hold out this long? I am usually lucky if a box sits in my house for a week, let alone a day. Any help would be appreciated.

A safe?

What were those things used back in the middle ages for women ?? Chastity belt??

Wait until the day of to buy?

Those are probably all valid suggestions

I'm gonna wait until the week before to buy it. I can wait a few days. Usually. I hope.

I found that if you lock it away in your closet, it's an out of sight, out of mind kind of deal. It's much easier when it's put away than when it's out sitting in front of you... looking at you, staring at you, daring you to open it... biggrin.gif

I'm not sure if I'll have something around to bust or not. If I remember to I'll try to have something. Maybe even ustream it.

If a stray box or two finds it way to me for my Birthday by way of a generous TCC member I wouldn't object. tongue.gif

I think we might have to make an exception or two here...

Things like Just Minors helmets, mini bats, and 8x10s include packs and/or cards. I think we should allow these.

Same with other memorabilia (balls, helmets) from Tristar Hidden Treasures.

Also, multi-pack boxes (boxes of 10 or whatever random packs from different manufacturers) should be allowed as well.
