      LOVE IT
      Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

            I absolutely hate it. I have a Target store near my work with plenty of loose packs. One day, I saw some scum emptying every single box in the store (MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL), and feeling up each pack. Now I won't buy any single packs anymore because there's basically no chance of getting any of the good stuff.

              So the card companies bear no responsibility for having virtually nil good inserts, or for making the packs more searchable?

                I've tried it before and I'm not good at it. I don't really care whether people do it or not.

                  What packs are in your stores? That is, assuming that you won't worry that I'm "obsessing over you", will "troll" you, or that I can even contribute anything constructive.

                    Nil? Did you seriously say nil?

                    They bear the brunt of it but the collectors who search pack after pack after pack like the one mentioned in weberd's post do spoil it for collectors.

                    It's on the card companies to mix things up a bit better and the stores to better police the killjoys. Vultures are vultures regardless.

                      Have you seriously not heard of the term?

                      It's on the stores to prevent customers from buying a particular version of an item they want? And nice how no one ever mentions dealers who do it too

                          Thanks for reminding me. I got one Upper Deck Masterpieces pack today. See the Pack Pull thread

                            I have heard the term nil. It's just not one you see often in general conversation.

                            It's on the store to make sure people aren't coming in and tearing up the peapatch that someone took the time to stock. If you were stocking shelves and you watched someone tear up the salad dressing section, wouldn't you say something, respectfully of course?

                            Dealers are consumers in this case, and they're the worst of the lot. They'll rifle through their own stock and then go about and try to do it to someone else's.

                              Almost all the time, I leave a card section tidier than I first found it.
                              Next issue?
