Dream Items vs Lucky Packs

Hi ladies and gentlemen! I have a question that is mainly an opinion one to consider but also I wanted to know if some of you have been in the same dilemma that I am in. 


I have my eye on an item being sold secondhand that is on my wish list of dream items to wear and own. The only con is it is my second choice color scheme and I haven't found the first choice color way any where else. 


At the same time, I have never purchased a lucky pack before and I've read numerous posts of good and bad luck with packs. I have my eye on a lucky pack that is being sold secondhand with none of the contents revealed but I always have bad memories of the $10 Sanrio grab bags I used to buy in my childhood. (There was one instance where all of the bags were said to be worth about $20 or more and my pack came with flimsy paper plates, cups, and some party invitations. In short, a really disappointing bag.)


What would you do in this situation? Would you take a chance on the dream item or go for the lucky bag with more items?

EDIT: Thank you for the advice ladies and gentlemen! I am most likely going to buy the second option color way in my dream item over the lucky pack. Lots of you reminded me that I can be picky about items in a surprise pack and sometimes being surprised isn't always the best thing for me.
