Should I buy Hot Packs on eBay?
Give me a reason to buy or to not buy. What price should I buy?Hidden Content in progress. I collect OKC. Current and former players have be in current uniform unless the attribute of rookie. I also collect former Oklahoma players, Kyrie Irving, Blake Griffin, Dikembe Motumbo, and Reggie Miller. Always looking to trade up regardless if it's a PC card. I usually ship within the next 3 week days. Want HOFer Autos.

I can't speak from experience, but I just can't bring myself to do it. There are so many dishonest sellers on ebay I just can't justify it.
-BenCollecting LeBron James, ANYTHING and EVERTYTHING. Emphasis on RCs!
Also LF: Irving, Varejao, Ilgauskas, Gibson, Waiters, Zeller and Thompson in that order.
I trade by BDV (Ben Denham Value). I will use BV and SV as a starting point, but in the end it is all about what it is worth to me!

I wouldn't do it. people tend to word things so particular to trick you into buying things.... i.e. "box" meaning hobby or blaster. People are suckers sometimes and sellers on ebay like to go after them.Sorry... "Lower than ebay" makes no sense when 1 card went for $4 and the rest go for $30+
LF Good Stuff of: R. Wilson, Peyton, Megatron, AP, T.Y. Hilton, Durant, R. Westbrook,
S. Curry, Trey Burke, Miggy, Hamilton, Chipper, Verlander, Fielder, Trout, Harper

Hot Packs on ebay,unless stated case hit or something like that, yield cheap single color jerseys most of the time. Also I think the seller goes further and actually knows the player on the card, so you are never going to get a Kobe or Lebron or a star player.

you can, if you dont mind paying 8-20 bucks for a super cheap gu/auto that you could probably get for 1 or 2 bucks. otherwise, steer clear- no one who sells hot packs is gonna put the great stuff in a 10 dollar packtaking a break from trading

At the same time it beats buying a whole box for 5-10 times that money and get the same card.

I talked to a couple of sellers that had these hot packs listed and most of them are from retail packs. So take that into consideration and rarely are there decent hits in blaster boxes and these are the same kind of thing.
