    Never buy packs or boxes off eBay I'm pretty sure people just sell the left overs after they get the big hit in the case or in the box. That's just my thinking though.

    eBay "Hot Packs"

    "Hot Packs" usually they end up having chrome or relic cards inside.

    The sellers will often open a case or box, and weigh all the packs. The chrome or relic packs will usually weigh slightly more than packs with just regular cards. They can then sell those packs for much more. Sometimes they can see enough through the pack that there is a chrome, relic, or autograph card.

    Sometimes they can tell just by feeling the packs, though. That's why, when the cards first get into Target or Wal-Mart, you'll see guys standing by the box, picking up pack ... after pack ... after pack. These 'feelers' go through the entire box, and get all the relic cards before anyone else has a chance to buy one. I had the pleasure of confronting a 'feeler' at Target, once. Before leaving, I looked him right in the eye, picked 5 packs he hadn't 'felt' yet, and walked to the register. Got a relic out of one of them.

    I've bought a few 'hot packs' before, and I think 90% of them ended up being a relic card. Except for the Allen & Ginter packs - the mini autographed cards came in a heavy cardboard protector, and weighed much more than the normal cards.

    I miss the days when rack packs came in transparent plastic, and you could SEE a few of the cards in the pack.

    I've obviously considered the likely possibility of being riped-off, but before labeling me as a rube, keep in mind that 10 bucks isn't all the money in the world. ;)

    As Toppsman said, I believe that this particular seller who has 100 percent feedback, weighs them.

    yeah there are different methods, I know some people open the packs, and place a low-value card into it and re-seal it. Not saying this guy does that specifically, but I'd be cautious

    This. I'm not calling you a rube by any means, but the vast majority of "hot packs" on eBay have been searched and resealed.
    "He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

    Some are above the board, some come from boxes which have already had the big hits pulled, most have been searched.
