Well you're not very good at getting your point across then. Perhaps you should put more thought into your posts. And in reference to your last sentence, that sounds like somthing an upper deck employee/owner would say.

It wouldn't be the same without them. I'll pay decent money for a Twins card with a piece of Mauers patch inserted into it, I think it's great. But if they are fake........screw em all.
I agree 100%, and I think everything about this post is common sense.
