You actually made my point there. I probably didn't write it in the most concise way possible, but it was 3 in the morning and I couldn't sleep so, eh.

I believe there are too few kids in the hobby, because prices are too high. Ebay is an avenue where everyone can see a card and bid on said card forcing the card higher and higher. This will create more of a demand on a box of whatever that card's brand was. So Ebay is, IMO, the largest contributing factor to high demand for a product. This causes prices to go up which forces kids out of the hobby. That is the way Ebay is hurting our Hobby.
