    Always wondered if any of these questionaries actually get looked at by the manufactures for them to change things to what collectors like. Instead we get this top down approach of “this is what you get and don’t complain about it.”

    As always enjoyed the poll. Interesting to see how my answers/opinion stack up aginst othes. Your one question about the products points out one thing about our hobby…..there are tooooooo many products. So many, that it makes a lot of people narrow/limit thier collecting

    I have to agree with Phillies_Joe, there are too many products and way too many prospecting products.
    Prospecting for rookies is a fun part of the hobby, and finding a player so early on in his career and following him up through the system is fun when everything works out, frustrating when it doesn’t. Bowman (all the different Bowman product lines) has become cost prohibitive so now I tend to stay with EEE, it’s a little more cost efficient, IMO.
