Default if there's only one pack left what do you do?

when you go to your LCS and you rummage through the inventory if there's only one pack left in any particular box, What do you do?
(sorry if this has been posted before)

I ALWAYS BUY THE LAST PACK IN THE BOX!!!

so far the last pack has always given me a hit although not always a good hit

here are my last pack experiences

kwame brown auto/100 from flair
luis scola auto from ud
rookie redemption auto eider torres from 2008 sweet spot
danny granger rookie auto sp authentic 05/06
and my only lebron and mj auto/25 from 05/06 trilogy

the lcs owner still can't believe that i pulled the mj/lebron from that last pack that was sitting on the shelf for 2 years...i pulled it in 08

Im the same way. Last pack (or few packs) in the box and I'm apt to buy them. The more dust the better!

BUY IT! I've heard of some amazing things being pulled out of last packs. An MJ atomic refractor out of Bowmans Best in the late 90's. I pulled a McFadden auto last year out of Sage with the last pack.

I'll definitely take my chances on it!

You buy it ... then have him crack a new box for you
You have to be like NIKE & "JUST DO IT"!!

I've been staring at the last pack of 08/09 Trilogy hockey for months. But at $18 I can't pull myself to buy it. I can probably get it at cost and save a few more dollars but my luck is never good on the last pack. Its always all base cards. I remember buying a pack of SP Game Used Basketball for $25 last year and pulled a Shaq jersey. I still have that card today!!!!
