To buy or not to buy...

Alright so, I'm a player collector, Roy, Price and Brodeur these are the guys I collect. When I buy a box, they are the ones I am after. Why then do I not just buy their singles on eBay and make sure I get exactly what I want? Well, I can only see one reason...I'm ashamed but I have to admit it...I am addicted to busting boxes.
A box seller we all know very well is currently looking through his books for the last year and he mentioned how much I spent in 2008 and well let's just say that if I put that money on singles rather than boxes, my display frames could be a lot more impressive.
If I had one ounce of logic, this is what I would do but I just cant...its not just the busting addiction but I think it's also a trading one. It's fun to get a box and think who will be interested in your latest pull. For instance, I got a Kopitar 2/5 in a box of artifacts and I just knew CSSports would want that one, I got the Sens in the trilogy box break and before the break even happened, i knew that I would trade some cards to Chris. Got two Del Zotto autos in my Ultimate 8 break, now who else but Jeff a devoted Rangers fan could be a trading partner for those ones? I think it's nice that whenever I bust something, I generally know who will need the pieces of puzzle I have just found...
The good thing is, some people appear to feel the same way about me too...They break a box and they send me a PM if they pull a Roy, a Brodeur or a Price. How nice is that? I just love how easy trading is on SCF, you dont even need to look for the cards!
To all my trading partners, thanksfor the great deals and I am glad to have so many friends on SCF!
