    I have seen lines... like people camped out with tents on Thursday night. It is a joke!

    Am I missing something. Like the guy I saw buying all the tins at Walmart. $45/each. Bought at least 10 tins. $450. The tins on ebay are selling for about the same price as Walmart. I don’t understand what he would do with 10 tins.

    My Target does not even hace a sign. I'm thinking some of the Flippers took it down. The Flipper for my Target and Walmart brings all his friends so they can grab all the boxes when they stock. I found where they store the boxes as well. They store them in a cold place (Around 30 Degrees.) and the guy has at least Hundreds of boxes for each brand.

    This is why the hobby is ruined. It's just ridiculous.

    Grown adult folks stand in line for hours to buy everything up just to make a profit!? That, my friends, is pathetic!
    I use a bubble mailer with DC, and expect the same courtesy, unless we both agree on another method.

    Also I am pretty sure my Target has something to do with it. I went to my local Target every day for a week. (Sometime Last Summer) and I asked this guy if they have any Football Cards. He said that Panini stocks the cards straight to the shelf and Target never holds on to the cards. Then he said let me look in the back. (I was told Target does not hold cards?) So he asked how many boxes I would like. I said 2 Should be fine. He then comes out with 2 Mega Boxes of 2020 Prizm. He said they were the Last 2 they had. (Why did Target have some in the back???).
    So the next day I go back I asked the same guy when they stock them. He said this, "They Stock on Mondays at 10 (I could be wrong with the day..)"
    The Next day I asked the guy when they stock again and he said this to me! "We never know when they stock they have been coming on random days for the past few weeks!" (But Yesterday I was told Panini stocks them on monday!)

    I think my Target is holding boxes for these Flipppers. (The Flippers pay them to hold the boxes.) I was told thet Target does not hold boxes, then he goes in the back and gets some and I was told they stock on mondays and that they never know when they stock.

    Everytime I went I was told a different story. This is getting so annoying.
    Just thought I would share this story.
    (by the way, I asked the same guy for the week.)

    Very true. What upsets me the most is, it's the young kids with little to no disposable income that suffer! It used to be an enjoyable hobby, but not too much anymore. All because greedy people would rather make a quick buck than to help a new generation of collectors enjoy this hobby.

    Card shops exist for one reason and it's the same reason every other business exists ...to make a profit.

    That's all well and dandy, but there's a difference between making a profit and making a killing. The product I once saw in Wal-Mart and Target are now on Hobby shop shelves selling for 4 to 6 times more.
