About Real Breaks
Real Breaks is Facebook’s largest volume group breaks exclusive community and is LIVE EVERY NIGHT (excluding some holidays). Real Breaks was established in 2016 with three goals: (1) To create a family-friendly community where we can enjoy our hobby with our kids, significant others, friends, and others we love. (2) To break at scheduled times so you can plan around your other commitments and never miss a live event. (3) To make it easy for collectors to get “back into” the hobby by introducing and educating on new products and the current hobby landscape.
Ryan’s first collecting experience was with 1987 Topps, the same year his beloved Minnesota Twins won their first World Series. He left a career in sales & marketing to co-found Real Breaks so he could travel less and spend more time with his family. He lives in Minnesota with his wife Laura and daughter Amberle.
