Im not really even referring to anyone on these boards, more-so for example some particular sellers on "the place that shall not be named" lol. And by saying this im not having a go at you (or anyone on the boards) either, but i always find it funny, everyones into all the new young guys who are highly touted, yet proved not much and could blow their knee out and reture in a year or 2 (hope not, but it could happen), yet how many Ryan Smyth collectors are there? Well I havent seen many, doesnt mena they arent out there, but he was heart and soul of that team before he got traded, and now hes back there mentoring the youth, teaching them good hard nosed hockey, but no one wants his cards coz theyre worth jack squat lol. Thats more what im getting at, and like i said, and i reitterate, im not slanging off at anyone in this community.
I actually do collect Ryan Smyth, always looking for nice Smyth cards. i didnt take what you said as a shot at me or anyone, just wanted to say that not everyone is collecting "hot young players" for finacial gains... althought the popularity of Hall, Eberle, RNH, even Paajarvi makes it quite difficult/expensive to collect Ouilers cards rright now. and probably the same next year as we have the number 1 draft pick again...
