Talking about searching packs at retail stores, I used to be one of "them"
Back when I was a kid, I learned that you could move all the cards around in a rack pack EASILY to see which players were inside.
I'm sure that's one of the reasons why I was able to have so many duplicates of the top stars and rookies from the late 80s.
It basically ended with the 1990 rack packs because topps went with a tighter packaging and no longer were in clear wrap.
Thankfully for me, there were no cell phones with cameras or message boards back then because I might have been plastered all over those.
Think of this post as also a warning when considering buying vintage rack packs. If a young kid could do this, what could an adult do?
I will willing accept all tar and feathers thrown my way
