I think their comments meant that they buy retail to add the green ones to their collections?
Me, if we had retail up here in Canada (the wal marts only sell hockey, no bball at all), I would totally go buy some! I'd love to add some of those green ones to my collection, because I think they look beautiful. I mean, I wouldn't go buy 5 cases of the stuff, but I'd definitely stop by and grab 10 packs or even a box.
And me personally, I think the greens look better than the golds.
