Where to Buy..

I'm writing this because it seems everyone is into GU's, and auto's and everything else. I understand those are cool cards, but what happened to the days when you went to your local store and picked up a few packs and you were just happy to get what you got?! I'm a collector of all of it, I'm happy if I just a few base cards worth 10 cents if it's a team or player that I like. It just seems like the hobby has become all about the money these days. If I had a card with a BV of say $200 and someone came to me reallly really wanting that card because it's a team they favor, and they had something that I wanted of say $20, I'd highly consider making the trade. Just dissapoints me sometimes that people won't give you the time of day because you don't have high quality stuff all the time.
