Yesterday we went to Vancouver, Washington for my son and daughter anniversary party that was combined with a 2nd birthday for their daughter.
Since there is a paucity of card shops on the east side of Portland I decided to stop at a card shop near my son's house. I had been looking for some Heritage at every Fred Meyer and Target in town and had been unable to find any.
I got to the store and looked at their pile of junk wax and picked up a box of Corvette cards for a friend and a box of Yo MTV Raps to see if I can make a set.
I went to the counter and asked for some packs of Heritage high numbers. The person behind the counter went over and got some packs out of the box. I asked if I could pick my own packs and was told no. He said they had too many pack searchers, so I told him he could watch me take the packs. He said no card stores in Vancouver allow anyone to pick their own packs. I bought my Corvette, MTV and Heritage cards and left. I may go back to get some cool boxes or singles but I will not be buying any packs from them. If they don't trust me I don't trust them.
What do you think? Have you experienced this?
