So I rounded the corner and noticed this guy on the ground with a bunch of Topps Heritage cards on the floor and a portable scale. I asked what he was doing and he said that more valuable packs weighed a certain amount. Of course, this just reaffirmed my previous hesitancy to buy any cards and I passed on dropping my hard earned cash on cards and instead used it for toilet paper (I guess I could have used some of the cards as toilet paper too, depending who I got - Andruw Jones...cough cough). But I wanted to ask - DOES THIS REALLY WORK? Do the the more valued cards weigh more and which are the more valued cards? Is this guy taking all the fun out of it and ruining it for everyone else or is he just conducting his business? Let me know what you think!

I was in Target the other day and while dropping the customary 100 dollars on household goods (why does this always happen at Target?!?), I stopped by the baseball card aisle. I was inspired by SOSG Sax and Roberto over at VSIMH and thought maybe I could get lucky. However I haven't bought a baseball card pack for many years because: 1. They are so damn expensive and I am a cheap bastard (seriously two bucks for a pack?) and 2. I remember hearing many years ago that all the dealers and hard core collectors know exactly which packs are good in the box and pick those out before they sell to the general public.
