I joined the LaLD community about a year and a half ago. At that time I first leaned about Super Treasure Hunts.
I kid you not... within a week I found my first regular treasure hunt... The rather unhearalded Fast Felion. I thought to myself “Well that was easy! Finding a Super should be a breeze.”
First 3 Months: Check every car on every peg and dig through dump bins looking at 99% of the cars = no supers found.
Following 3 months: Research which Supers are currently out, check every car on every peg, half-heartedly dig through overflowing dump bins = no supers found.
Following 3 months: Slowly lose interest in knowing which ones are current... skim the pegs and determine full effort based on amount of pegwarmers and damaged cards currently out = no supers found.
Following months to present: Judge most displays based on face value of peg warmers and only spend two minutes tops looking at the upper crust of dump bins = no supers found (of course)
