Nothing is stopping them.

Yes, trust can be a hard thing. That is why you have to really become friends and get to know them, and really find out if you can or not.

I have only trusted 1 owner. He was a 70 year old hard ass that hated baseball cards. He had a coin shop/card shop but hated what the card industry was. He would open the box and mix the packs in a seperate box. You would pick from the box. You couldn't feel the packs you would just pick one. I was there once when someone complained and wanted him to open up a new box. He said "If you don't trust me don't buy from me."

Don't buy open packs. Unless you see a case hit. Then buy it.

i think you are misunderstanding. the OP meant "loose" packs, i.e. from an open box. It sounds like you mean "open" packs as in the packaging is ripped open.

I trust one guy at my main lcs. If anything is pulled out of the box he'll tell me about it, so I won't waste my money on it.

I have a LCS that I trust. I've been to other card shops that I didn't trust so much though. For those card shops, I felt like the guys running it had no interest in really getting to know their customers.

I trust one of the LCS stores in town, the other takes all their packs out of boxes and put them in a display case. You have no idea how many boxes are mixed together, if rest of packs sold, if they took them themselves, in a backroom waiting for the others to sell, etc. Always has seemed sketch to me. Also almost every pack they open for "previewing" has a freakin hit in it. c'mon!

I trust my LCS. I don't normally buy packs, but I've seen plenty of people do that and have success. I've also seen the guys open new boxes and mix all the packs to make sure the hit(s) aren't always in the same spot.

I trust the main one that I go to. The owner is a truly great guy. I only make it there once every couple of months, but the owner remembers me. He even talked to my mom about her collecting Barbies lol

I trust mine, he actually doesn't open packs... he mainly deals with sealed product, so no gain for him to pack search. More times than not, he will open the new box in front of you, shuffle the packs... so no problem with trust here.

I wasn't aware that you actually opened packs, considering all the crap you give others for "wasting their money" when they take the gamble...
