Default Packs

I am a huge fan of Blowout Cards but was wondering what sites are great for buying packs, not searched, not opened, etc.

Thanks for your help in advance.

2 things.

1) Don't ever buy packs over the internet.

2) Are you kidding me with wanting us to give you a link to Chris and Pat's direct competition? Thats just dumb.

Ebay is full of good sellers and those that resell resealed. Most local stores would be your best option for packs, but to be honest with blowouts pricing, if you can hold off the itch for a week or two you can get a box. While a box doesnt give you the variety mulltiple assorted packs will, you'll typically get the odds, so you can get something. But you will also loose out on those rare days the packs you pick up are golden.

not to get off topic, but I had a student write a paper when I taught at the University at Buffalo, and he cited "google" as one of his references.... I nearly died of laughter

Thats just about as bad as the idiots that use Wikipedia as a reference for papers.

I don't know if I'd call it a great site. Its probably the best site for completely unreliable information on the web. If it were something that only published documents were on I would call it a good reference site, but when I can go on there and post something about, lets say, the government of South Africa, which I know nothing about and have it used as a reference for other people, well thats just not a good idea.

I definitely understand what you mean with comment #1, sometimes it's not even a good thing to buy packs at shops.

The #2 comment I didn't mean any harm to Chris or Pat. I have not been around this site that long but there weekend specials are great deals.

I do have to admit (that thanks to you) I found a way to be able to afford sports cards but not have to buy packs where they could be kind of sketchy and that is to sign up for the group breaks whenever I see a price I can afford. I went ahead and signed up for your Ballpark break (in reserve) b/c I could not even pass up that price.

I apologize for any stupidity I have brought in and promise next time to leave my stupidity at the door.
