it's sad to think that there may never be another one of these again. The best we can hope for is national treasure or a college edition exquisite---this makes me sad

[QUOTE=JOHNJOHNNY;3475522]If this is not the representation of America, I don't know what is. How many thousands of dollars is that? How many starving children could that feed? How many homeless people could that help? How many returning veterans with PTSD could that help. How many cots and clothes could that buy to help a battered women's center, what about an orphanage or a home for mentally challenged people.

Instead of giving and helping our fellow man we spend thousand (or in this case) tens of thousand of dolars on cardboard, while our fellow man is starving to death. When foreigners speak of the decadence of America and it's uncaring attitude, this is what they speak of.



yes man, but I think it's an investment like to buy stock actions in stock exchange!
For me Exquisite is the best, but not necessary to have an amazing collection!!!

Feel bad am not performing life changing surgeries on third world orphans. Am looking out over Central Park and considering killing self via defenestration.

However, excessively high standard of living mitigating impulse.



Feel free to steal the answer...

You made the conscious choice to spend thousands of dollars while people died. Their blood is on your hands. I hope you are happy with yourself.



























































This is what an extremely liberal coworker said to me when I brought some of my cards to work to show another guy. She wanted to teach me a life lesson, and I just wanted to pass it on to you Money grubbing, wasteful, cardboard collectors!!!!

By the way, awesome collection. Is it sad that I don't have a single exquisite card in my collection??
Isnt Verona from Italy?
