Talking Secret Audio Club - Wax Packs Series 1 (Vinyl Record / Trading Card Cross Over)

Hey Guys - Spoke with Tom at Blowout and they should have pre-orders up in a few days. But I wanted to share a project I've been working on for the last year with you.

Wax Packs Series 1 is a 7" vinyl record series packaged like Trading Cards.




Here is the press release that we sent out earlier:



Secret Audio Club has revealed and launched pre orders for Wax Packs Series 1. Wax packs is 7" vinyl record series packaged like baseball cards. Wax Packs will be released on January 28th.

Featuring 10 different 7" records to collect with mix of new music, covers, live tracks, demos & acoustic renditions from: Such Gold, Austin Lucas, PJ Bond, Podacter, Arliss Nancy, Banquets, John Moreland, Half Hearted Hero, Broadcaster, Aspiga, Boxer, The Hundred Acre Woods, Gifthorse, Broken Field Runner, Casual, Crybaby, Marathon, Fire When Ready and Placeholder.

Each 7" is pressed on Black Vinyl, Color Vinyl (limited to 150) and hand numbered color vinyl (limited to just 50 copies). All 7"s are then placed in a jacket (identical artwork) and shrink wrapped to create random "packs".

Each box contains: 5 packs, one limited edition color vinyl, and a box topper trading card. You're guaranteed to get 5 different 7" records in each box. The box topper trading card features one of the bands in the series (collect all 20!) with a digital download code good for each song in the series.

Two promotional trading cards will be available (each with a unique code good for two songs from the series). One given out for free at our booth at THE FEST next week limited to just 300 copies. The 2nd promotional card will be available in non-sport update magazine in January.

Wax Packs is proudly manufactured and hand assembled in the United States of America.

Hey Dash, yup totally real! Vinyl is currently at the plant.

I run an independent record label and really wanted to being back the fun of opening a pack to the vinyl hobby.

Not sure what you mean by invest? I'm paying for it myself, but we launched pre orders today and the feedback has been fantastic so far.

There is actually a huge aftermarket for vinyl records much like cards. The color variants (or parallels) can sometimes fetch descent coin.

Since most of these bands are on indie labels, there is also a bowman element to them. Many bands when they get bigger, people go and try to track down their first record.

Should be a post on cardboard connection tomorrow!

I really like the idea of have a few extra rare hits like the signed pick card you mentioned.
I was also wondering if there will be any hot boxes with multiple color variants instead of 4 black records and one color?

I just got my promo in the mail. I have to say I really like the card and the music is quite good. I also noticed that the card says promo card 2 will be in Non-Sport Update which is awesome news. Keep up the great work.

Glad you are enjoying the tunes. Did you purchase a hobby box? There are some really great bands and the series as a hole (29 tracks) is enjoyable.

Thanks for the support!

We imported a few 7" binders from the UK to hold your collecting. I put a few up for sale this morning.

I just got my binder with the mp3 downloads and, while not everything is my cup of tea, there is some really good music in this set

Awesome! So glad you like it. There is really a huge spectrum of bands on here,the whole point of this series was to help people explore new music with a collectability aspect. Which base card did you end up getting?
