Disappointed I could see, we would all like to see our favorite hobbies and related sites more popular, but surprised? I don't know why you would be surprised. Ebay probably gets more lookers in 5 minutes than this site gets in a month. That's not to denigrate this site, I love it, it's just the nature of the beast. If you want to have the most sales (or purchases) go to where there is the most traffic.
As far as ebay taking over this site I can't really speak to that because I don't look at the for sale or trade sections but I do believe, like someone else alluded to, it is inevitable. I remember way back when I was trading on the Usenet rec. and alt. groups (all you youngsters are going Huh?, Usenet, What the heck is he talking about? rec? alt? is he loco or something) anyway, at first it was great and most of the posts were direct sales wanteds and trades but toward the end it was 90% "look at my ebay auctions." At least some people were decent enough to put Ebay in their thread title so I could ignore them.Steve Schindler
Collect what you want to collect. Collect players and cards that you like. Collect what you can afford. Collect for you, not to try to impress someone else. If you do this you will much more likely to enjoy the hobby and stay with it.
