I agree to some points but not to others. #4, card flipping and trading have disappeared? Look at Sports Card Forum, a highly active trading site. As for flipping, Checkoutmycards.com. #8, Video trading cards? I saw it as a blip on the radar and nothing else. As far as I can tell people aren't running out to get these. I do agree though that the industry is fading fast and needs a lifeline. I have all but decided to stop buying new cards and only concentrate on existing cards.
