TCC WACKY WAXBUSTIN' WEEKEND!
The first ever Wacky Waxbustin' Weekend is coming this spring!
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!
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.
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!
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!
