    is Allure the new Parkhurst ??

    it seems like nobody is interested in these new cards.
    too many parallels?
    to few in the basic set?

    It's probably because I was out of the game for so long but..

    I like the Synergy and Allure stuff, my Allure blaster was a hell of a lot better than my PUTRID series 2 blaster... not even close.

    I've had no issues trading the Allure or Parkies this year tho

    I really like the look of them, having seen them in-person on Saturday at break night. That said, I can see why a lot of collectors are a little shy about the product. Hockey collectors haven't really embraced the chromium/shiny parallel sets with the same fervour as our compatriots in bsaeball/basketball have. You look at what a shiny Zion card from Prizm goes for....it's light-years beyond anything we've seen from the hockey releases.

    I haven't touched the Synergy stuff other than to pick up PC items but I think it has a place in the collecting world as does Allure.

    I really like Allure. Surprised at how low the book values are on the parallels. But I don't see much on eBay at the book values.

    There's just too much stuff around to collect. I have a Yellow Taxi Nick Suzuki rookie incoming, I'm curious to see it in hands. The better hard-signed stuff still isn't released yet.

    In addition to the usual truth about there being WAY too many products for collectors to focus on (hockey collecting is a pretty niche hobby...there really aren't many people who collect worldwide), many of these products are new and it takes people years to kind of "get used to" a product where they start to pay more attention to it and think of it as legitimate

    I think in 15-16 when they started throwing products at the wall to see what sticks some collectors have been tentative to get on board until they think the product line will live-on

    with things like champs, full force, contours and whatever else were 1-and-done, people just don't care about cards from sets that aren't lasting

    That is a good point. I wish the hockey market would start to embrace these a little better. There are instances of it, but I do wish there was more of it.
