Figured if you didn't frequent the PSA/CU board, you might still want to see it.

Quite a production for 449 YouTube subscribers but you said he was new. That was a quite a pack! Several times he mentions "equity pack". Members purchase equity in his pack breaks and:
"each share purchased is equal to a percentage of all the cards valued in the pack"
Sound effects and some kind of wild spinning wheel. Of course I did skip ahead to the actual 1958 cello pack opening. Thanks for the link.

I really enjoyed the video!

So in his first cello pack opening, he pulled a Jim Brown rookie and then in his second cello pack he got another one? Wow! I know the first one is missing a corner, but still, it's crazy to pull them back-to-back like that.

Now I'm not an expert on cello packs, but it looks like these were not machine sorted. It looks like a lot of the big names were put into these packs to make the kids happy back in the day.

Missing a corner? New from a pack? I didn't watch so shame on me, but are we sure these aren't loaded "packs" to entice buyers to future breaks?

Pack rips like this remind me of cards selling on home shopping network back in the glory days ...

There are so many scammers in this part of the hobby that you might as well just put your money on a roulette number in Vegas. And I can never tell whether those that post these to hobby sites are doing it because they really like these breaks or are being paid to promote them and attract players/viewers.

But each to their own so if you enjoy watching these, have fun!

Unitas and Brown consecutively, what are the odds?

C'mon Peter, probably highly likely. They were graded packs.

The theatrics the guy does with his hands are ridiculous IMO.

The flip started with 18,000,000, which means the pack was graded at least 6 years ago. So no, this guy didn't plant two cards and then get it past Steve at BBCE and into a PSA holder.
