The Worst Kept Secret seemed to hit a nerve with several people who subscribe to this forum. Fears that the card companies who are members of this forum wouldn't be too happy with what I said and that retribution down the road may happen scared a few people. I stick to my comments and as an 'insider' I feel that I am quite qualified to make them. I wish I had recorded the original comments I made regarding this item back in July but I did make them to several people who have commented to me that I was right. Although the comments I made are mine and mine alone this topic was a constant discussion piece in the store this past week without a single person disagreeing with me. I believe I have the right to state my opinion on whatever I deem relevant to the hobby, especially hockey card related. I have been involved in this hobby for over thrity-five years and I actually started card collecting over forty-five years ago. This has led me to protect and defend the hobby because for me it is a passion and a true love which is why my store is a not-for-profit and supports four local area charities. Unfortunately some people tend to mix up the definiitions of passion and greed and are solely looking for self recognition at the hobbies expense.
