Are any of you out there high volume case breakers?
I've been reading a little bit on Blowout's forums (not sure if that is a good thing or if it will make me jaded about the hobby). I'm wondering if people who do that are actually able to make a big enough profit to make it worth all the time spent ripping as well as managing sales online, etc. Or do they even make a profit at all?
I'm wondering because now that my seasonal job has ended and I'm looking for work in an area that still has high unemployment, a source of money would be a nice thing. And I have realized that my joy in the hobby is much more about just ripping packs to see what's inside than it is about collecting the cards. (Besides Braves of course!) I understand that there is a real risk if you're small scale, but does it balance out in the higher volumes where you have a better shot at landing the really rare stuff?
This is probably just a pipe dream but I sure would love to make some real money off ripping packs, as I'm sure most all of you would.
