Layton Sports Cards Based in Altamonte Springs, Florida, Layton Sports Cards is a family-owned, full-service hobby shop that closes the store twice a week in order to focus on their case breaks. Although the store is not restricted to breaking on Wednesdays and Saturdays only, Layton has a full calendar handy for collectors to view when their favorite product will is available to break. Mojobreak Catering to every type of collector, Mojobreak has different styles of case breaks, box breaks and personal box breaks. In addition, Mojo frequently hosts "mixers," where the host breaks different sports card boxes instead of a case of the same product. In addition to full case breaks, they also break half cases, making the more expensive products not quite as pricey.
BM: How did you get into collecting? I use to go to the LCS and hang out all day and talk sports and trade. BM: What is your favorite all-time card?
It was the first card I remember pulling out of a pack and being super excited about it. I told my parents he was going to be the best player ever. BM: What lead you to case breaking?
Hawk: Back in I was just getting back into collecting. So I was always online looking for cool cards from my favorites teams. I came across some videos on YouTube of guys breaking boxes and showing the cards that were pulled.
Back then most of the guys uploaded the videos instead of doing it live. I loved the idea of doing the breaks live so I created Liveboxbreaks.
BM: How long have you been breaking? Hawk: Right around 7 years now. Some of my favorite moments have been pulling something amazing for a customers personal collection.
Especially in a random team break. Sports has always been a big part of my life so working in this hobby is a dream come true.
Hawk: It has to be the first Vip Party we went to. I met Tom Glavine and Dominique Wilkins, two of my favorite players of all time.
That was our first National so the entire experience was amazing. BM: How often do you break? Once a week, once a day, etc. Hawk: We break 4 days a week. BM: When do you break mornings, evenings, multiple times a day?
Hawk: Our stream starts at 8pm ET and goes late into the night. We have been up till 6 am many times. Hawk: We have a team of 5.
Everyone is family. Me and my best friend are the breakers. Hawk: I love National Treasures, Flawless and Immaculate like everyone else, but I am always super excited about Select Basketball and football on release day.
