Default 07 Bowman Chrome FB Hot Pack

How in the heck can you guarantee this w/o opening and resealing the pack?

If the picture can tell you anything, look at the crimping at the top, and then look at the same crimping at the bottom. It has been cut off.

I have spoke on this subject many times in this forum. I bought several "hot packs" from several different sellers, and they were ALL resealed, and it was very obvious to see. I'm not going to say that this seller does the same thing, but that picture is definitely suspect to the exact same thing that I'm talking about.

Matt,

Did you get your moneys worth out of the "hot packs" you bought?

Heck no! It was a complete scam. I didn't plan on getting my money's worth though. I wanted to find out for sure what was going on with these so called hot packs. I reported every seller to Ebay, and all but one was eventually removed. The part that sucks is that the sellers they removed weren't sellers at all, but seller, (singular). He had several different Ebay accounts that he sold these cards through. I was glad I could help get him out. I would bet though that he's back with new accounts.

There has to be a way for eBay to filter through bad sellers. Sellers need to use the credit card info so I don't see how they can filter the SCUM of eBay. But then again eBay is just in it to make money. I may have answered my own question.

You can weigh the packs of certain brands, and you can run one finger on top and one on the bottom with even pressure and feel the auto sticker or Gu'ed bump. There are a lot of tricks to that, but it's shadey. People do that at Target all the time. Not all people open them.
