    Ok, I'm stupid and I have never asked anyone. How much heavier are printing plates than cards? The reason I ask is because I would think pack searchers would be able to tell and grab them. Again, great cards, thanks for posting.

    No question is a stupid question. ;) Anyways, plates don't weigh any more or less than a card. The texture of it is about the same as a normal card also. Unless the guy is an amazingly good packsearcher, I think that it'd be really hard to determine whether a plate is inside. Also, thanks for the nice compliments!

    Your very welcome, very nice cards. Thanks for answering my question. I found this article recently after I had read a post about pack searching. The article is five years old but I found it somewhat interesting.

    One last question (I hope). Am I correct to assume that a printing plate is used for every type of card (Certs/GU'd/Parallels/refractors/ect) but only certain cards have a 1/1 printing plate released to the public? The reason why I'm ignorant on this is because I only collect game-used and occasionally a cert. Thanks...

    Thanks for the article. Even though its a little outdated, all the concepts are correct. Pack searchers are the scum of the hobby in my opinion.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that every card produced has a plate associated with it, but only some types of plates are put in packs. The ones not put in packs probably stay at the factory.

    Again, thanks I appreciate the answers. I would have thought that since it's called a printing plate it would have been a metal of some type. Thanks so much and look forward for more Konerko postings...

    Love the ones of him in a Dodgers uni! What do you think his chances are at 500? 76 away... but age 36. I think if he stays in the AL, he will get there. Hope he does!
