Many people claim to know the “secrets” and “clues” to knowing when a pack contains more than the boring old base. When they pick up a pack, they can supposedly feel the thickness of a game-used card, or other odd findings. For me, I personally feel that there is a lot wrong with pack searchers.

Just imagine walking into retail stores and finding some brand new hobby boxes, or at least, hobby packs. The main way most collectors currently pick up these items is through either their local hobby shop or online. However, there are some problems to this method. The harsh issues that individuals face include prices and inconvenience.
In hobby shops, the prices of most boxes are marked up way more than they More >
