I received my FA Football Heroes Prestige Book this morning from the RM. It's foil packed. Now do I open it or keep it sealed, if I do I'll never know the condition or see the contents, better buy another, however if I do then my dilemma returns, do I open it or leave it closed?
I wonder what prices the opened / unopened will achieve in the future. Confused

I share your pain!

I usually order two copies of each Prestige Booklet: one to keep intact and one to split for key Machins (if any). I have just ordered a third copy of this booklet so I can keep one in the unopened foil!

Note to self. Must buy shares in Royal Mail ... Wink

I had exactly the same questions running through my head when I saw them... additionally I had to ask my self .... do I collect stamps or tin foil.

I still haven't opened one but I have the excuse that I have so many other purchases to sort at the moment I can leave these for a while.

What if your pack contains errors like an extra page - you will never know and what would be the value of that as against leaving it unopened?

Thanks Gooner, I hadn't even thought about the potential of holding a booklet error, now I have more to ponder about. Rolling Eyes
