Thread: European/International cards

Is the card collecting thing as big in Europe as it is over here in NA? I have never seen these kinds of cards for sale over here, and would love to have some cards, especially representing the Swedish leagues, but also others. Are they worth more/less over here than over there?

Judging by the number of European members on the boards I think it's safe to say that it's a pretty big deal overseas. Many Finnish collectors out there are incredibly enthusiastic about their native-born sons that make it, as can be seen by how much a Jesse Joensuu rarity can fetch if two of the well-heeled collectors get into a bidding war. Guys like Selanne and Koivu are as well-revered over there as any Canadian is in Canada.
As for their releases, it's a tough go. Because we North Americans don't have much access to see the SEL, DEL, KHL, and other major European hockey leagues, there's not much enthusiasm here for the products that originate from Europe. Sure, if our guys from the NHL go to Europe during the lockout and get included, people may pursue those cards, but I don't see too many card shops looking to order cases of Swedish Elite League products.

I also have another question that you might be able to help me with...(I already posted something a bout it in the Inventory section), but how do you add cards to the inventory that the search can't find? My example being my Grant Fuhr rookie card

Fuhr rookie card should be easy to find as he only has the one OPC RC. Just ensure that you've got your search parameters correct (Name, Sport, Year, etc.) and it should pop up with no issue. See below.

Nice - I just had a similar experience about a month ago when I went into the crawlspace at my mom's house. Unearthed two boxes full of my old cards from the 80's and 90's. Some nifty stuff. Most of it probably not worth very much, but still nifty.
