INVESTIGATION: Does Backyard Breaks Get Loaded Cases?

Social media is buzzing that sports card group breaker Backyard Breaks is getting loaded cases. 

Backyard Breaks, based out of Florida, rose to cardboard fame or infamy when a giveaway involving a rare Trevor Lawrence rookie card went awry.

The company was able to plow through any negative backlash and are one of the largest breakers on the internet. Backyard Breaks includes over a half dozen males who stream for several hours at a time on Twitch. 

Conversation about loaded boxes sparked when 'The Collectibles Guru' tweeted some big hits Backyard Breaks has pulled this year. 

Backyard Breaks recently added this to their background of a break. A lot of breakers could learn from their marketing skills.


MAJOR UPDATE

Sports Card Radio has obtained statistical analysis that show this is nearly impossible. Are the case breaks at Backyard Breaks rigged? Who could be rigging them? Why?

VIEW DATA -

Data CONCLUSION

The approximate odds for each individual pull were as follows:

>LeBron Triple Logoman = 3.090% (3,090 in 100,000 odds)

>Trevor Lawrence Gold Vinyl = 0.667% (667 in 100,000 odds)

>Cade Cunningham Black = 0.909% (909 in 100,000 odds)

A breaker like Layton or Backyard pulling all three would be a 1:550,000 shot.

The Tweet

Backyard Breaks responded to The Collectibles Guru tweet by implying they pull valuable cards based on the volume of cases they open. 

Group breakers who open the most product are likely to pull some of the best cards in any particular product. 

The Volume Theory

Fellow sports card group breaker Real Breaks also backed up the theory that Backyard Breaks does not get loaded cases. 

Panini does not directly sell to group breakers who do not have a physical store front. 

Backyard Breaks has to acquire products from various sports card distributors, such as GTS, Southern Hobby and Peach State Sports.

Discussion

Sports Card Psychology broke down some of the math on pulling one of these rare cards. 

His breakdown concluded that the odds to hit these cards would be harder than winning the lottery. 

Further breakdown is needed to account for the volume of cases Backyard Breaks opens. We look forward to seeing more breakdowns like the one Sports Card Psychology did.

INVESTIGATION DAY 2

October 12, 2022

We await more data and information from the people working on those details.

Sports Card Radio has invited Backyard Breaks onto our YouTube channel to talk about the allegations. 

Sports Card Radio has lined up some group breakers to come on and talk about the theory of loaded cases.

Any math experts slide into my dm's. You are needed. 


Group breaker Cblez with a good breakdown of the situation from a breaker perspective. 

Key points:

> Many of the big hits Backyard Breaks have pulled were well after the product had come out (LeBron Triple Logoman)
> The Cade Cunningham 1/1 was pulled out of 1st Off The Line & not regular Prizm hobby. 


Backyard Breaks apparently "called their shot" on the Cade Cunningham Logoman 1/1. Predicting they would pull the card before the box was opened. 

This could fuel the fire that they know they are getting loaded cases and even know what is inside.

Sports Card Radio has obtained statistical analysis that show this is nearly impossible. Are the case breaks at Backyard Breaks rigged? Who could be rigging them? Why?

Data CONCLUSION

The approximate odds for each individual pull were as follows:

>LeBron Triple Logoman = 3.090% (3,090 in 100,000 odds)

>Trevor Lawrence Gold Vinyl = 0.667% (667 in 100,000 odds)

>Cade Cunningham Black = 0.909% (909 in 100,000 odds)

A breaker like Layton or Backyard pulling all three would be around a 1:550,000 shot. 


Sports Card Psychology came back and broke down the odds based on the volume Layton Sports Cards has done with the same products.
