No. Hobby is still cheap, why retail may I ask?

Brings back memories buying a few packs at the store. I have weaned myself from nearly all other retail, but this was how I spent my allowance between 1975 and 1986.

I'm with you for the most part there, ripped my fair share of wax as a kid...but knowing what we know now about the hobby, why wouldn't you spend your hard earned $$ on hobby packs? The value is much higher, is it not?

Saw it today at Target, standard box as well as the 4.99 "value packs" or whatever, I suppose those would be good if your looking to only set build. Also saw Retail Donruss for the first time, got a nice Boys of Winter jersey of...Boll I think? I don't remember I left it in my car.

Some retail products have excluisve cards or Jumbo cards, especially like the tins. I really have no idea about the O-Pee-Chee this year, but before tins had Bobby Orr exclusive cards in each. Artifacts has the single swatch retail jersey cards , which look pretty cool. I know Victory Rack Packs had the exclusive red parallels. And Upper Deck Series one fat packs(?) had exclusive inserts. I am pretty sure they are *retail* , and they do offer unique things really.
