Default 17 pack prizm retail break

I'd like to post a bunch of sweet greens, but guess what? I didn't get sh!t. All packs were from a freshly opened and unsearched box. So while most peoe post awesome breaks, I thought it would be fun to post a terrible one.

I would go back and get the rest of the packs there at least got to be a couple greens left in what you didn't grab.

I would make this situation the exception.

My brother got the remaining and edged up with a John Wall green. I'm glad I passed on the rest and had him get them.

Quick question...I don't do basketball but I've heard that if you can find retail prizm you should buy it. I found a retail box w/ 23 of the 24 packs left. It had clearly been searched (cards slid up in packs). My question is, can you easily search for the green parallels? ...or was the person looking for an auto, found it and bought it?

I guess what I'm asking is, should I go back and buy it all even though it has been searched?

Im not aware of anyone being able to search by feel for the green prizms. The pack searching ive experienced is when I buy packs of prizm and a corner or whole side is open. I think that is what most others have experienced with prizm pack searchers as well.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can't search for the greens unless the packs are slightly opened enough to see the edges of the cards.

Just wanted to say thanks to the guys that responded. You guys saved me $75. I went to target this morning and cleaned then out of Prizm. I got out to my car and found a slight hole under the flap by the bottom of each pack (one was just wide open on the top). If it weren't for you, I would have ripped them open. I immediately returned them. I can't help thinking about everyone who wastes money on stuff that's already searched, so I guess thanks again for saving me from that!

They took them back?? That's at least a good thing

They were literally in my possession for 5 minutes (he knew I wouldn't have had time to search 24 packs). The guy at the counter was super cool about it. I guess I have to be more diligent in the first place!
