    I recently purchased some 1st edition fossil booster packs on ebay. They all seem to have a semi perforated side with 3 or 4 very small holes along the side of each pack. I'm trying to figure out if that's normal for these packs or if they have been tampered with.

    RE: Booster pack question

    I remember those marks from years ago. I believe it was done by WOTC packaging machines.

    Strange. I have never seen those marks on a booster pack.

    I doubt marks like that would help increase a packs value seeing as people would most likely want one in the best condition possible. I've been noticing a lot of those holes on the Boundaries Crossed booster packs. I personally find it displeasing to look at. I know they havn't been tampered with but that's always the first thought that comes into my mind.

    I have noticed those marks on various WOTC packs, primarily Gym Challenge/Heroes packs. I guess it's just a packaging error. It shouldn't effect the cards though.

    I think they might have happened on the belts that quickly moved them from machine to machine and some machines had little pns that help seal packs. Sometimes during sealing they would press down to far and sometimes puncture the booster covers for the cards but I don't think the holes released any pressure from the holes though. It was something like that. Not sure how PUSA does it though.:)

    I've gotten Neo Discovery packs that came in a weird order... anyone know if this was a tampered with pack or if that was just later producing, but the cards are usually... 3 uncommons, the rare and then the commons... the lot of 4 I got had the rares all the way in the back, which is cool but suspicious... I did get a holo though and it seems like it's gem mint but it's curious.

    Heya,

    Did you ever do anything with these? Open them? Prove they were legit? I have some base set packs with the exact same holes. At the time of buying the seller confirmed all his other packs in the box also had them.

    Now with the boom on pokemon cards maybe someone can confirm.

    Thanks
