Default Buying Boxes from Sellers on Ebay that Break Boxes themselves - 2011 A&G

Hey all,

just curious. I bought four boxes of 2011 A&G from a seller a few days ago and now I see that he has over 1800! singles up on ebay. He has sold boxes of the product as well.

I just am wondering do you ever suspect someone of this caliber to open cases until the big hit of the case and sell the rest of the boxes?

Does anyone have any experience with this seller?

Just a little buyer's remorse.

its possible, but at the same time,ome cases have had 0 case hits and some have had more than 1, so even if they did that, they might not come out ahead

with A&G there's no guarantees per case, so any box could be "THE ONE"

The only thing I can think of is if he hit a rip card and sold off the rest of the case but I've seen cases with no rip and some with 2

This is true about 2 rip cards in 1 case. Somehow my normal luck decided to take a vacation when I bought 2 boxes from the same case at my LCS and pulled 2 rip cards.

I just got 3 rip cards in a case! I think you are safe buying boxes. There's no way these guys know if there are 2 or 3 rip cards in their case, and considering they seem to travel in twos or threes it might not be a bad investment.
