"Random Stuffing Ingredients"
or "How I became a Pirate", (hockey collecting)

One thing I often find myself wondering:

Where have all the inserts and parallels gone?

I mean there were millions of these in the mid to late 90's, yet searching the trade boards yields only a handful of collectors who even admit to having them, much less seem to have a list of them marked for trade.

Oh, you can cruise the bay and find people trying to sell them as singles for $1 plus $3.50 shipping, but really, who's paying that for them - no one.

I don't mind paying $1 for an insert if it's something I lack for my PC, and often do so at shows or shops, but that's rather the top end of it, except in rare cases of wanting a specific one to finish a parallel set or the like.

Seriously, I have stuff on my want list for years on end that high books at $4...$4 really!?!

So I ask - where are they?

Give me a big box of mid to late 90's inserts and parallels to sift thru anytime smile.gif
