Never underestimate single loose packs

Tonight on the way home I stopped at one of my local card shops because I needed to pick up a ball cube holder.  While I was there, I picked up 2 packs of 08 Donruss Classics and 2 packs of 08 Upper Deck Football.  The Classics packs yielded a Doak Walker insert #’ed/50 and the Upper Deck ones gave me a Drew Brees and Peyton Manning jerseys.  I don’t think thats too bad for 4 packs.

Hot Packs and Pack Searchers

Lets face it, hot packs and pack searchers go together like two peas in a pod.  People will weigh packs to determine whether or not there is a memorabilia and/or autographed card inside.  Then they will sell or open the packs.  Searching eBay you will find many people selling hot packs.  Some people are satisfied with the results but many are not.  How do you know what they are selling is a hot pack or not.  They could just be out to make money.  You never want to purchase a product that has been searched.  If there was something really good inside don’t you think they would open it before they sold it to you?
