I should, because I've only bought large bunches of clearance motors a few times. Pink packaged motors once, Cobra packaged motors once, and at Walmart a few times with their special retail packaging (wadding included, two motor packs, etc.).
I may never have seen the pink packaged motors (I had some of the old "three motors with wadding" packs, from Michael's Crafts and Wal-Mart). I vaguely recall Estes motors with artistic, multi-color ink, "multi-copy character" printing (of the motor designations printed on their casings) in the 1990s and 2000s; I don't know if those were of the Cobra style.
