I'm extremely excited about stumbling upon this site. I used to collect cards with my dad and the last few years started buying my son a box here or there. But we just have WalMart and no lcs. I actually got more when on Christmas he pulled a Luck/RG3/ Weeden/Tannahil patch card #237/610 if I remember right.

I'm wanting to get more in the collecting and selling cards. What I've read so far is buying from WalMart really isn't going to net anything. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome! You'll definitely learn the difference between cards from places like WalMart/Target ("retail") and LCS or distributors like Blowout ("hobby"). The former is less expensive but has limited appeal in terms of content while the latter is more expensive but where most of the good stuff is found.

This is a great forum, you should enjoy yourself

Welcome to blowout. I used to hunt for retail boxes at Walmarts and Targets that were the same as a' hobby box. That was until 2008 and now most stores only sell the same retail stuff. It is a nice break, buybut majority of the time it is a waste. Hobby is the way to go.
