What is "Open That Box" day?

On one day, Non-Sport Update Card Talk members and collectors from around the globe can come to a special area of Card Talk and all share the experience of opening a box of trading cards (or premium pack), all on the same day. This is the eighth year for the event and it's open to one and all.

What is Open That Box! day?
Let’s face it -- trading cards were meant to be seen, held, read, discussed, and traded; not kept in a box gathering dust. Open that box! day is Non-Sport Update magazine’s specially created day when collectors open a box of trading cards and share their experience with the non-sport collecting community at large.

What Can I Open
You may open the latest box or premium pack, or that "special" vintage box that you've had lying about and you've been saving for a rainy day.

How Do I Participate?
On May 11, we invite you to open a box of cards or some premium packs. Pull that special box out of the back of your closet or purchase a new box or packs from your favorite retailer. For those of you going to the Philly Show, the show takes place one week before OTB! day so plan ahead and pick-up a box at the show. Open the box and visit Non-Sport Update’s Card Talk web forum to tell the card collecting community what you got. We’ll have a special thread for everyone’s results. Try and make this a more meaningful experience by opening your box/packs with a friend or family member. Tell us about that, as well as why you chose this particular product and why this one means more to you then others. Take a couple of pictures or video and upload them for all to see. Feel free to use YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, or anything from today's tech arsenal. And hey, if you get an extra set, use the NSU Card Talk trading forum to trade with other collectors who are doing the same thing today.

What if I Don't Have a Box or Pack to Open?
You can purchase a box or premium pack from your favorite hobby dealer. Or purchase one from one of the dealers in Non-Sport Update magazine or our retailers on NSU Card Talk.

Do I Have to Open a Box to Read the Entries?
No, anyone can read the entries on NSU Card Talk. Of course, it's much more fun if you also open a box or pack yourself!

Some of your comments from Open That Box! day '13 may make it to a future article in NSU so remember what you post in the OTB submission thread is fair game. We hope this day will be fun for all who participate.

Other ways you can participate–
You may also take part in Open That Box! day by e-mailing your comments to us at info@nonsportupdate.com. Or by fax (717-238-3220) or mail (NSU, PO Box 5858, Harrisburg, PA 17110).

We hope to get a lot of new submissions from this (from collectors new to Card Talk and maybe from some of you who haven't posted in a while). Additionally, I hope that all of you "regulars" will help support this as well.

Thanks!

Since I won that box of Star Trek TOS Heroes and Villains from Rittenhouse Archives, at last Sunday's NSU's Gathering event, I'll be opening that box this Saturday. My son can't wait to get into it and neither can his father either.
Thumb Up

I told myself I would not open any of this, but figured I'd go high end for OTBD...I'll be doing a box of UD Marvel Premier.

Harris- I tried opening the topic on the other board, but it said an administrator had to approve it- just wondering if you saw it at all...

Yes, we are hoping to have it in late May of this year (i.e. next month). The date will be posted in the upcoming issue of NSU as well as here on the forum soon.

Thanks for asking, Darth Vader Fan!

Wanted to let everyone know, we are planning Open That Box! Day 2014 for May 31. So hold off on opening that box for just about 7 weeks, ok?? Big Grin Or better yet, open it now and buy another one in a couple of weeks for OTB.

Are we still on for May 31st for OTBD? There hasn't really been any discussion about it from other members here which is kind of surprising.

I was wondering that too. I hope so! Now that I seem to have inadvertently stumbled back into the hobby, I'm looking forward to taking part this year. Smile
