Sure you might be able to come up with a legal way (some high tech xray machine or something), but in general the methods employed by pack searchers selling hot pack are illegal. If you want to argue that, bring it on as I prosecute these types of crimes every day. And even if you can find a method that isn't illegal, it is still morally reprehensible and damaging to the hobby. And if you argue it doesn't damage the hobby you are insane.
So defend it all you want, but 90% of all pack searching IS illegal and the other 10% is just as bad. So I am not making a single assumption about anyone engaged in the dealing of hot packs. They are scum.

everyone acknowledges that some forms of pack searching IS illegal. if you dont know which hot packs are gained by illegal or legal methods, than any hot packs purchased or sold support the business of ILLEGAL pack searching

It's a cool collectible because of what all happened and how JFK died so suddenly, but not for me.
Also, it pisses me off that this guy is the one selling it. I hate hot packs. I have bought 1 ever. It was at a show in Dallas last year. I just wanted to see what all the fuss and commotion was about because the sellers behind the booth were opening them and hitting autos, multi-color swatches, etc. So, I left their table and went and opened my pack and got a common 1 color JSY. Paid $5 for that POS and it pissed me the hell off.
I ain't doing no more hot packs. They suck and it should be criminal!
