But now the pieces of cheap cardboard are shiny! With topographical bumps on them to give a marginal 3D effect! And the expensive inserts with 1cm x 1cm pieces of game worn fabric.. wow!
(sigh) I miss those old days of card collecting. I find it hilarious that people are willing to pay $10-$15 for a 'pack' of cards that only includes one card. Then there's all that grading system stuff where anything of worth must be encased in a very hard case and given a decimal value. It's unreal.
