Quote from celebristI bought one of these today because it had a planar chaos precon still wrapped, I thought. The deck box was re-shrinkwrapped and repacked with basic land! I am more than displeased and amazed that this can be done.

Turns out it is a long one, hence the spoiler tags.
So I went and bought a few of these for kicks and had mixed results.
To be specific, I bought the "Extreme Value Package" that includes two booster packs and 8 bonus cards. The bonus cards are nothing to write home about; just a mix of older common and uncommons from all kinds of sets. Worth it for the nostalgia and maybe some Commander play, but that's about it. Except for an Umbral Mantle from Shadowmoor (worth $.50), every other "Bonus" card was worth $.15 to $.25 so other than the fun of it, no real money to be made just from the bonus cards. (I suppose they might include a random expensive card but I highly doubt it. That's how legit card shops retain customer loyalty from customers already in the store. These guys are banking on uninformed spouses and parents seeing these in Target while shopping for groceries. They don't give a crud if you ever buy another "Extreme Value Pack") However the packs I found were all packaged so they showed a Standard legal pack (3 New Phyrexia and one Core 2012) in the front of the package, but the booster pack behind it was hidden. While the New Phyrexia only hid a 2011 Core pack, I was surprised to see the 2012 Core pack hiding a Shards of Alara pack. This one pack held a Quietus Spike and a foil Hellkite Overlord. While I cannot say that was normal, or in any way indicative of the quality of said packs, I'd like to say the packs seem legit and not resealed. I would never guarantee that all packs are this good (or bad considering) but I had fun opening them. On another, possibly related note, of the eight packs opened, six of them had foil cards in them. Like I said, probably not the norm, but cool anyways. I'd buy them again, but only as an attempt to try for an older pack of cards.
Good luck to all who buy these.
Quote from hmyzakHi, are this value packs still in sale? I would love to have several of them, but they seem to have dissapeared...
