I have been collecting sports cards for many years. I am a huge collector and fan of sports. I have been collecting basketball, baseball, hockey, and football. I have learned many diffrerent things about collecting. In this guide I'm going to teach you about buying packs/boxes of cards.
Here are a few quick tips about buying packs/boxes
Check out the seller's feedback rating to see what their past customers have thought of their items
Never buy from a seller that has private feedback. Why would an honest seller want to hide their feedback?
Never bid on an auction where the current high bidder's ID is kept private. Most likely they will be shills. In other words, the seller will create multiple accounts where he/she will bid on their own items to raise the price.
Always make sure the pack or box is sealed especially vintage boxes or packs.
