I want to buy a booster box to hold some office drafts.

I remember booster packs as having 15 cards per pack, which is in line with what Wikipedia says:

Starting with the Shards of Alara block, booster packs for both Core Sets and Expansions began to contain 1 land, 10 commons, 3 uncommons, either 1 rare (7/8 chance) or 1 mythic rare (1/8 chance)

But the Amazon page for the Core M12 Sealed Booster Box says that there are "10 Cards/Pack".

Did something change, or is the Amazon page wrong?

It's probably an error, as M12 only had 15 card booster packs (as can be seen in any online store catalog like this one). As far as I could find, the last core set to have smaller boosters was M11 with 6-card packs.

Indeed. All M12 boosters contain 15 cards. – Hyppy Jun 13 '12 at 23:14
I have seen the 6 card boosters in big-box stores for M13. But yes, I've never seen nor heard of a 10 card booster pack for any recent set (or actually, any set). – corsiKa Aug 14 '12 at 21:25
@corsiKa I answered this before m13 came out :p Still haven't found a single m12 booster pack with less than 15 cards. – rahzark Aug 19 '12 at 9:01
