I was wondering if these are sealed in any way or can a company you order them from online open up a few to get the super rares out of them then repackage the unopened boosters and sell them as a new box.

It is not seal, so technically yes someone can get the SR and repack it up to 60 packs and sell it...
The thing is, each GF does NOT guarantee a SR. So even if one want to do it, one will be taking a risk.

I brought a GF and didn't find a SR until the last two packs.

It becomes a thing of numbers, though. If you open 10+ GFs, stopping when you hit an SR in each one, you would be able to repack 2-3 (maybe more?) GFs and resell them, even though you could be very sure they didn't have SRs in them.

they could, but repacking those 60 in there is pretty tough, they should be fairly tight and uniform. If I got a GF that didn't have the uniform packing I got in my 2, I would be concerned. Unfortunately, if you buy a GF and it's your 1 and only one, you have nothing to compare it to.

I have purchased a full GF from Target and got zero super rares, another full GF online (eBay from the_gameking), which was even wrapped in the tissue paper and got zero super rares. I bought a full GF from a local shop (The Wizards Chest) and pulled a SR Canucklehead, I also purchased an additional 74 boosters from the same local shop and pulled a Tsarina. Take that for what you will.

Another thing to consider is that we all know that each feed has, almost without exception, 9, 10 or 11 rares, so the repacker would have to somehow make sure to get the right amount of rares back into the feed. If someone bought a feed online and got no SRs and only 6 or 7 rares, they would definitely smell a rat. Or it could go wrong the other way with the feed ending up with 13 rares in it, in which case the re-packer has lost out on potential rare profits.

With SRs going for more than 10x the cost of a rare, that's where the real profit is. And while I agree that a store with a reputation to protect would be wary of doing that, eBay resellers wouldn't.

I don't think places like CSI are going to repack boxes (I think they're just going to open more boxes than they sell until the bottom falls out of the SR market). But I wouldn't even consider buying a box from eBay.

That's the target distribution, but it's not guaranteed. A sealed case of six boosters should net you all four SRs, but there's a slim chance you'd just be unlucky and not get them all.
