  1. Been awhile.....

    It has been awhile and I apologize to those who follow my blog . It seems the same shineola is happening everyday and I have gotten so bored with the whole damn thing that I found it very difficult to to say anything. All the same garbage is still happening and to top it off with a cherry our favourite past time has decided to have a work stoppage.

    This is the third lockout/strike since the little dictator has taken over as commish of the NHL and in all honesty I've had enough ...

  2. 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'll keep you informed.

    Happy Collecting !

  5. Updates for a September 24th

    Well here we are on a Monday with the month of September almost gone and no hockey in sight. For hockey fans this is another disgusting kick in the teeth by the greedy powers that be. 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 ...
