Look the bottom line is this. There are people who open high end product and then there's the rats that scavenge off of what is pulled. Either you open or you scavenge. You can't do both because people who open product are far more willing to pay above and beyond to acquire a card they want. And people who scavenge, do that, they scavenge the remains. Rarely do they haul out the big bucks to buy something they want. They would rather wait 3 years and buy a card for $20 when they could've had it 3 years ago for $50. I don't have time for that, go scavenge elsewhere.

What if there were no "rats" in the hobby? Don't the hobby need those "rats" to pay the piper who open the cases? I mean if you can't sell mid-low end singles that would hurt the case crackers a bit. You should just suck it up and move on. Your brilliant idea didn't pan out, not the first time and i'm sure it won't be the last

Probably the best post Ive seen in a while. Those "rats" are the only reason anyone makes money off of a case break. Period.

Why do people keep on bringing up old topics? I don't get it.
