I have been a regular customer for the past five years and purchased many boxes of cards - perhaps a few thousand dollars worth. I now realize the cards on his store shelf are picked over stock. While he (or other preferred customers) break a case they learn the sequence of cards found in each box. For instance, bowman autographs are found one per box and follow right down the checklist. They choose boxes with top players and sell leftovers to lower-income collectors who frequent the shop. A large portion of this demographic is children. That's why I feel obligated to post this message. I know this problem is pervasive but you're better off taking chances with another dealer. One that I recommend is Charm City Cards (online).
