Well folks it was bound to happen sooner or later! NRL was the very first break listed on Gimko.

The original home and pioneer of NRL breaks just keeps on delivering the MOJO to our loyal collectors!!

When the news was out that ESP were releasing four 1 of 1 cards in this years 2016 NRL Elite, the hunt was on.

Tonight we were blessed with the best case possibly out there.

The break delivered beyond our wildest imaginations:

Group Breaks 101

What are Group Breaks?

The basic setup of a group break is that multiple people split the cost of the boxes (or a case) in the break and then the cards are divided up among the people in the break usually by team.

It is a great alternative to buying a full case or box and they are a great way to be involved in a large break at a lower cost.

 

How Do Group Breaks Work?

The number of people in a group break will generally depend on the type of break. For example a random or team based group break will have the number of spots equal to the number of teams in that competition. For NRL, there are 16 people in a group break as there are 16 teams in the NRL. For AFL 18 people as there are 18 teams in the AFL. For NBA there would be 30 and so on for other sports. Once each spot is sold and paid for in the break the box or case is opened and you will receive either every card or just the HIT cards of your team from the group break that you purchased a spot for. This is determined by each seller of the break and will be outlined in the description of the group break. …continue reading
