I know if I worked there and saw some of these gems sitting around in a filling cabnet...who would notice a few of the millions of cards sitting around if they happen to come up short.

Now mind you I could pay for pbeanjr's College fund with some of the gear hanging on the walls
I think for folks that work in the industry the lure of collecting cards is not that much fun ..... while they love their jobs, they deal with cardboard and players every day so the "rush" is probably long gone.
