This sucks - I just got into buying hockey cards again after a long long time.
What's everybody else doing?
I have gone back and forth with international shipping over the past coulple of years because I list a decent amount of hockey but most of it is low-end (team sets, base pick lots, etc.) but this is the end for the foreseeable future - no one is going to pay those shipping charges. I did the same thing you did - disabled int'l shipping and will not get back into it again.
