News from the card collecting world.
Just wanted to post a reminder that Upper Deck National Hockey Card Day is this Saturday, February 9th. This is an event we have supported over the years with FREE packs for all who visit. Frozen Heroes will also be giving away FREE Biography of a Season ten card sets to collectors and giving away a few signed hockey pucks from our Toronto Maple Leafs friends.
Come out and see if us if you are local. More info can be found here:

Well....hope everyone is doing well. I've been getting a lot of requests for article posts to a number of sites and while I am flattered I really don't have the time to give to it as noticed in how infrequently I get to my forum blog. My time is pretty much getting eaten up by a number of things I do including community work so it would be a difficult thing to do properly and I would feel awful if I couldn't do it right.
Anyway, on to current items of interest. Cracked our first case
Well I figured without any real exciting news or updates I would take this opportunity to chat about some of the hockey card issues this year.
I guess the biggest 'issue' was Upper Deck tricking us with Series 2. Only shipping what was preordered and then saying that is it. This in effect drove the wholesale price up from issue by about 75%. Hobby boxes are being quoted on the secondary market at $100 or higher and even the retail and blaster boxes are taking a hit.
