Congratulations on the autograph in just three packs. And was this really your first EVER hobby store visit? Wow....I remember being twelve years old in Bell Gardens California walking about 5 miles with my buddies to the card shop on just about a weekly basis.

Sports cards is the only retail business that I know of that you can't ship back unsold inventory and usually eat at least half the cost if you can't sell it. Unopened stuff VERY rarely appreciates and usually just falls off a cliff after a year. Unless a dealer is dealing in super high volume there is just no way he can compete with the online warehouse places.
The nice part about being a regular in a shop is the owner can really do you some solids. A lot of times customers will crack open a pack and get a really good card that the dealer just doesn't think he'll be able to move but if he knows you and knows it's something you'd like he can get it for you at a great price or sometimes just put the guy in touch with you. It's good business for him and gets you access to cards you'd not otherwise be able to get. And as corny as it sounds, I just miss the days of sitting back and opening a box of cards at the shop. It was different then.
