On today's show we talk about how the actions of a few 'companies' in this hobby in recent weeks have showed how desperate they are for customers and/or profits. 

Industry Summit bans yours truly & Brian Gray from Leaf because of some things said at last years Industry Summit. You know you are getting desperate when you care about what is said to only a few hundred collectors (at most).
 
I've said this before - if all your customers (or even visitors to a website) are coming from Twitter or YouTube videos - you'll be broke in no time.
 
DA Card World is showing how desperate they are for customers by running illegal raffles, 7 months after I clowned on the idiots who were doing them last year.
 
One reason why people in this hobby are so sensitive recently might be because cards aren't selling. Here are the new wholesale prices for 2013 Panini Football boxes vs the original ones - OUCH!!

Absolute Football $75 vs $129
Limited $48 vs $80
Momentum $89 vs $159
Playbook $89 vs $160
Rookies & Stars $50 vs $76
Select $67 vs $112
Certified $60 vs $80


Finally, I talk about if companies should get rid of base cards - or if there is a way you as a seller could promote the purchase of them.

Finally I finish by telling you it's wise to save your money!
