The hobby may not be growing, but the prospecting game absolutely is. I have been doing this for awhile, and there is zero doubt in my mind that it is growing. You make the claim that more and more people are ripping and flipping which will flood the market, and at the same time you say that there is no increase in the prospecting game. I hope you have 9 lives, because if you fight to the death over this one you may lose one.
