Default 1 Pack of Preferred

Went to my lcs to get some supplies, he had an opened box of preferred, the booklet was rebound with no big names so i was hoping there was something good to be had out of the packs. One of the packs was missing and he grabbed a pack and told me it had a diecut auto in it, so i thought, why not, those autos look good. I opened the pack, the back of the card was showing 49/49, and then I saw Kobe on the back. I also opened 17 packs of past and present before this pack and didnt pull anything to good, i got a starks elusive ink auto, reggie theus elusive auto redemption, ekpe udoh gamers gu's, and a 2012 draft redemption #6, i also pulled 2 of the bread for life (only suppose to be 1 per box) and it was ewing and maravich.

Nice hit--- but i'm surprised that no one has called you names seeing how the store owner was apparently pack searching to tell that there was a die cut in the pack.

Aren't we suppose to kill people for that lol!!

well after opening $100 worth of loose packs in the past and present, i was asking him about the preferred, and it was the first pack he picked up, and i asked him what was wrong with the pack, i thought it had been opened (because its really obviouse which ones the die cuts are in), and thats when he told me it was a die cut, he was trying to sell me the last 3 packs and was going to throw in 2 crud rebound booklets. he wasnt searching the box for me lol, he was trying to make a sell, and when he saw the look of disgust on my face since the pack was crumbling in his hand, he was honest about what he was holding. but when i pulled the kobe, he had the look of disgust on his face, im sure in the past he has held that pack and debated about opening it. so why would anyone call me names if the store owner was allegedley pack searching lol. but anyway, there was no pack searching going, its just random the way the events unfolded.

wait, so this guy opens boxes probably looking for silhouettes and then tries selling the packs individually? that's odd.

what did he charge you for the pack?

Didn't know LCS would sell preferred by the pack. The booklets aren't even packed. And then you can feel the packs and see which pack has auto patch and which one are just cheap sticker auto.

Just wait until the LCS owner figures out how to reseal packs.

You got lucky, but I wouldn't do business with that guy.

You lucked out on this one.

My LCS will only sell these higher end boxes as a sealed box which I think it should be. Preferred is the only recent high end with individual packs right?

im sure he opened the box to hopefully get a nice booklet, cash in on it, and then sell the packs at cost, i paid $50 for the pack, he did this back in 06-07 with finest, he would open the master box, take the bonus pack out, and sell the individual mini boxes. 95% of the time i get wax from here, but i needed some supplies and havent opened wax in over 6 months, so i tried my luck and actually had some lol.
