I thought it was a great idea. The thrill of the hunt is half the fun.

That's an option on the secondary market. Check out ebay!

I'm sure someone would sell you all 10

The reason I think it is dumb is because you are openly promoting people to flip records on a secondary marketplace (i.e. eBay) for a higher price than it's worth.

I would want the Such Gold 7" but I'm not gonna buy a bunch in hopes that I get it. And I most certainly will not support people trying to make a secondary profit off of it by buying from eBay.

This is more of a "collect-and-trade" medium than a regular record series. It's based off of baseball cards, which are all packaged blindly. What do you expect? I don't really think "flipping" applies here. It's the same thing as KidRobot bbs or Magic:The Gathering.

The Such Gold 7" band exclusive was available on their tour and on their merch tour.
Here's an Ebay one for 7$:

so these are all packaged the same, same amount of each pressed, and you truly have no idea which one you stuff into a mailer if the single pack option is purchased?

if that's the case, I'd consider a 5 pack

Crows is spot on, it's all about promoting trading and finding new bands you might not check out otherwise. Again it's not for everyone - but I encourage you to check out the release on spotify at least.

Each box has 5 sealed 7"s. In a box you will get 5 different ones, one being on color vinyl. But yes, you don't know what you get until you open it.

Got the Such Gold/Placeholder split from Placeholder. Just like hunting that certain Pokémon card, it's easier just to buy it secondhand...
