A rather rough estimate, mind you, but about 70-30 with me. I keep about two-thirds of everything in the box or on the blister card, the rest I open for display.
How do you decide what you're going to open and what stays in the box? Do you buy duplicates?

One of the things I started doing was buying open items if it was something that I knew that I wanted to display. They are cheaper and then I don't beat myself up about breaking the seals. It helps that I know if this great shop here on the Northside of Chicago that sells lots of used and vintage genre collectables for cheap. I've found all kinds of cool figs to decorate my desk at work.
