I'm saying that the reason OPC and Score are so cheap is because they're meant more towards kids and beginners collecting. Think about it, a kid who is in it to collect their favourite player, are they going to buy 5 packs for $5 or 1 for $5? You're getting what you pay for, a bunch of base cards, a few inserts, and maybe just maybe, a jersey piece.

Most adults are in it to have an actual collection to show, or to make money off of. That's why they buy the $5 packs, or the $100 boxes. It's for people looking for hits, not just their favourite players. I don't bother with OPC or Score because I know i'm not getting much out of it. For the price I would pay trying to find a hit in those packs, I could buy a pack of the more expensive product and know i'm getting a hit. Yes i'm missing out on all the lovely base cards, but i'm not in it for that.
