The world's most trusted source in collecting

Some people I know break cases and boxes and sell all their big hits while making base sets and auto sets. Myself I collect Prospects and Hall of Famers. But that doesn't mean I buy only off Ebay or from the LCS (Local Card Shop). Sometimes I have bought just a few packs and pulled some amazing stuff. I also agree this hobby when buying packs and boxes is a complete gamble but it is a complete rush when you buy a box and you pull a 200 or 1000 dollar card. I also sell on Ebay some of my hits but I am picky about that so I don't sell quite as often as I should. Just have fun and figure out what works best for you.

There are times when I put the white decoy cards in with the cards to make sure that it is a little more protected.

This is a best practice with single cards for trades or selling. The more secure you can make the card the better chance it has of getting to someone in near mint or better condition. Also if selling make sure to take pictures before you send it. That way you know what the condition of the card you sent out is.
