Default Pack Searchers!

I just wanted to inform everyone that I am doing my part to prevent pack searching! LOL

Maybe we should get a petition together?

Heres my news/announcement about what i am doing....some may call me an A$$ but i was a little pissed when i see this...

I was in Target over the weekend and tend to stay away from the retail packs because i know people will search them. So i took a walk over to see if they had any Sweet Spot tins left. I noticed a guy standing there searching all the packs. He was putting all the packs in a pile on the shelf. So I nonchalantly walked over to look at some packs, grabbed his stack and walked to the counter and paid for them! He was pissed and tried to argue wth me. I just told him i was disgusted with him and that if they are on the shelf they are free for anyone to buy! He had no argument. That and the fact that i was about 3 inches and 50 lbs bigger than him helped too.

Sorry just wanted to vent. Searchers take all the fun out for little kid collectors now aday and it angers me.

Wow...hey speaking of Retail packs I bought a boster box of 2008 Gridiron Gear. I was feeling the weight and the one that felt heavier was the one I went with. I pulled and Andre Woodson. A Rookie Gems of Glenn Dorsey and a Ronnie Brown Jersey. Not bad for retail!

Do you mean where I got it? I got it at Target! Target seems to have the best hits in its retail products!

its hit or miss i think, they have 3 packs, i with an auto or GU "on average" i bought 4 tins, 2 had regular jerseys (bonderman and someone else) and he other 2 had auto baseballs (smoltz /15 and a Brandon phillips)

not too bad for 30 but like i said...you may just pull a jersey then you are out $25

At my Target, I went to today, I noticed workers walking over to put out new boxes, I was excited to see Bowman DP Baseball and Football.

I went over and grabbed a box to see if any packs were huge (I usually buy those, I dont think it is packsearching so much because I buy thick, I dont squeeze or bend or anything.)

So I check out and turn to say bye to cards, I see someone searching already.

I was like darn, if I stayed I wouda gotten some good packs.

(It seems whenever I look at a packsearcher with my huge big blue eyes, they give me a pack and leave.)

So ya, got a Angel Villanola card and a jersey card of a no one.
