  1. My Anti-Store Rant

    Well this is my anti-store rant

    As a card store owner I get a lot of people coming and going who ask all kinds of questions. Some interesting and some quite stupid. I enjoy trying to help educate those who are genuinely interested in getting into the hobby or wanting to know more about it but the ones that absolutely annoy me are the questions such as "why are your prices higher then the flea market". Well this has to be one of the dumbest questions that I have ever ...

  2. The Panini Caper

    The recent announcement that Panini products would be distributed in Canada by Universal Distribution only and that Grosnor Distribution had been cut out of the picture is rather disturbing on several levels. Allowing only ONE distributor in Canada is going to create several problems with very unfavourable results. Not only will this mean increased prices to hobby stores and to collectors it will also mean more stores and collectors buying from US based suppliers. It will also add further credence ...
  3. Hot Off The Press *Panini*

    Hot off the press is news that Panini is about to become available through Universal Distribution in Canada exclusively.

I'll keep you informed.

    Happy Collecting !

For hockey card collectors this means cards being issued with last year's pictures and no new rookies. For store owners like myself, on top of all that we are faced with trying to keep interest in hockey cards going. This is something that we do on a daily basis anyways by talking product goods and bads with customers ...

  5. 2012-13 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey News

    The disappointing news about Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey (due out mid-November) was just given to me. The Young Guns Rookie Cards will only contain players who played at the end of last season and weren't included in last year's series 2. Unlike 2009-10 when Tavares, Duchene, Bozak and such were photographed at the rookie photo shoot and put on cards Upper Deck says that won't be done this year. What does this mean ? Most of all NO NAIL YAKUPOV !! Interest in this product will take a big hit knowing ...
