As much as our collections are about the actual cards and memorabilia, this is really a hobby based in trust. What happens when that trust is broken and how can it be fixed? http://www.cardboardconnection.com/leap-faith-importance-trust-hobby

Mr. Cracknell,
Are you searching for Montreal Expos cards.  I've inheritated a small collection of Baseball and hockey cards.  Not quite interested in keeping them, but at the same time, I know that some cards have increased in their value, based on players professionalism, popularity and (the one I hate most) media marketing.  Please let me know what your looking for (if you are).  My name is George Maraston and I am on Google +.  Ciao

It's hard to believe that up until now there has been just one standalone Star Wars set with the Topps Chrome name. That changes next year with 2014 Topps Star Wars Chrome Perspectives. Every pack has a Refractor and autographs are all on-card. http://www.cardboardconnection.com/2014-topps-star-wars-chrome-perspectives-trading-cards
