Default 3 Packs 2011 Allen Ginter Hobby

Saw about 20 2011 Allen & Ginter Hobby packs in the clearance bin at the local magazine shop and after feeling a few packs decided to buy the 3 lightest packs and ended up pulling a Chrissie Wellington red auto 5/10. Does anyone know how much this is worth? I couldn't find pricing for red autos in the Beckett magazine.

I like the fact you all have "pack searcher" pics handy for the instances. Awesome.

Probably worth about 8 grand.




Give or take $7,980 or so.

Blowout Tip #1: Never say that you pack-search (even if you do). I don't, its more exhilarating and exciting when you pull a sick hit when you weren't expecting it.

Blowout Tip #1: Don't fking packsearch. It's stupid and usually not worth it (see 98,JP and/or pack). As you can tell, the people who do it are dumb-dumbs. DEFINITELY don't come on here and brag about it after the fact.

All this person did was ask a simple question. Based on XL5's response the most youll probably get is $20. Not bad for about $4-6 or whatever it was you paid for the 3 packs

You probably never want to post on this forum again because the hounds have your sent and they will attack.

lmao, great first post!

All you have to do is hold the sides of the packs and shake them, the hit will shake inside the bordered card it's enclosed in.

No i dont pack search, but yes I know this, say something

Wow, did not realize I would get flamed this bad for my post. Being new to the hobby I did not know pack searching was unethical until I read about it. On the pack it reads "PACKS WITH A FRAMED INSERT CONTAIN 7 CARDS" so I thought hey let's test the theory "7 cards should weigh less then 8 cards right?" so I picked up the 3 lightest packs and ended up getting lucky with the Wellington card. Anyways, my apologies for offending the sports card community and I wont be doing this again lmao.
