I normally have zero luck with just buying a few packs. That night though I had some extra cash so I figure I would blow it on this stuff. I have two complete sets of the base stuff so I knew that I would be leaving the base stuff at the LCS. I was hoping for an insert and best case scenario an auto. Turns out it was two autos, no inserts and no base set that I wanted. I cannot complain though.
Pack busting is a lot like roulette. Sometimes you hit the number other times you get the color. Last week I bought a box of past and present and got 4 hits 3 autos and 1 mem. Then I bought 4 packs of Topps Chrome football and pulled an auto of T.J graham and then I bought the last 5 packs of 12 prestige and got the burks auto. That was a descent day. But I have had some really good days buying packs.
