Hello everyone! My name is Frank, I’m living in The Netherlands and was born in 1993. I decided to create this blog because I want to show everyone realistic box opening experiences, whether it be trading card game boxes, sports cards boxes, non-sports cards boxes or perhaps something else, as long as it’s collectible. I want to show genuine experiences, so both the good and the bad. Next to that I’m interested in writing informative articles and spreading the knowledge. You can read more about my motivation in my Welcome! article.

One day I hope for the blog to be self-sustainable such that I can open and collect all product I want. Today that is not possible yet, so it is possible that you will see me selling some cards to recoup some costs and open more product, because that’s ultimately what I like most, opening more product.

To accomplish that I have chosen to run ads and affiliate marketing campaigns. Due to that I need to include some notices on my blog which you can find below. And this site of course also has a Privacy Policy.
