Modern Masters 2 Packaging


While kudos go out to WOTC for the new recyclable cardboard booster packs, they do present a problem for stores and customers. The flaps on the packs are glued together and, as you can see in videos on the interwebs, a heat gun will loosen the glue so the pack can be opened, cards inside inspected, and resealed without any indication of tampering. After learning this, we gave it a try and found we could open and reseal a pack in a little over a minute. In order to avoid customer accusations of resealing, some stores of which I know are either A) relying on their reputation of always treating customers properly or B) only selling sealed displays and drafting.
