Man I'm torn. The 2 reasons above are what's making me not wanna buy. Can't stand that I'm waiting on big redemptions and not knowing when or if they will ever get fulfilled.
What if I took the $150 I would spend on a box, and bought singles? I could easily buy the cards I want, and get good hits instead of the gamble of a box.
But it's the gamble that draws me in, the fun of opening with the family, that's keeps me buying.
