    So I was in Target today, letting my boy spend his Bday money. He just picked up a bunch of Backugan....(the latest kids thing)...and I wanted to check out the sports cards. Every pack that I picked up was open at the bottom. I mean not just the same brand, ALL of them. So I called a manager over and showed her. She in turn called over security and they said they knew is was happening and they were hoping to catch the culprates. They said it was also happening at Walmart. She said they pick the packs up, mess with them and some how get the bottom open. With the bottom open, they slide the cards out, look for good ones, take them and slide the rest back up.

    I in turn said take the open ones off the shelf. Put them in a location where you can see people stealing, ect, ect.

    I never buy stuff from Wal Mart or the like. Idiots will go into the stores with small digital scales, weigh the packs and grab all of the ones containing patches or cuts. At least with the idiots opening the pack you can tell they've been there, with the pack weighing dudes there's no way to tell after the fact.
