Thining about the weekend!

She Who Must Be Obeyed has been invited to a Super Bowl Party at Jumer's casino in Rock Island, Illinois. She is not a football fan, but she does get to invite a friend, so I'm it!

Went last year and saw my Patriots lose, but they do things first class! Huge projection screens, open bar pepsi.gif , stadium food, prizes and more. Even though my team is not there, I'll be wearing my Tedy Bruschi Super Bowl jersey! toot.gif

Where is the current state of the hobby and where will it be in a few years?

Looking at the economy, the overproduction, the overuse of Event Used, current postal rates, etc. I am not seeing much of a hobby in the future. Current postal rates have all but killed low-end traders, as if it wasn't bad enough that Ebay and Paypal had sucked the life out of low-end selling and even mid-range selling. The postal rate to Canada doubled to $6.55 for a bubble mailer, that is going to pretty much kill my hockey trading, unless a lot of people move south of the border (not Mexico laugh.gif ).

UHOH That sounds like you received a dead soldier, or a severly wounded one.

I don't know if this will help but I've noticed that some of the sportlots dealers I get cards from (who always seem to send everything in PWEs) will sandwich the card in heavier cardboad stock. Usually from a post office priority envelope or some common breakfast cearal box and sometimes from heavier corrugated boxes.

Of course what really drives me nuts is the ones (and ebay sellers) who will put the card in a "card saver" w/no penny sleeve and TAPE the saver closed with regular tape and no barrier to prevent the tape from sticking to the top edge of the card(s).

Seen ones shipped that way reinforced, but it doesn't always work and have seen too many messed up bubble mailers even that got stuck in the sorting system. Also GU cards crease (around the window of piece) real easy as they not uniform in thickness always, so shipping that way it goes thru their rollers on the sorting and as they don't bend it puts pressure on the card and can cause it to crease even in a toploader, hence why I go overkill on my packaging. Not worth the risk to me, so just puts a major damper on low end trading out of country, as not worth $7 in postage for $15 in cards even let alone less than that.

just wish it was cheaper to make one card trades, dont mind trading in the states, but out of state trading for me is done unless worth it, so yeah, PWE for out of the USA will be my only option, hate to start charging shipping on trades, not right as I would make a trade to Canada and it will cost me $6 something and when my card comes, it only cost them $2 to mail to me, dont get it!
