thanks in two minutes I looked it up a came to the conclusion these cards are B.S been out since 82 and they are 40 bucks! what a rip off! you can see
why these cards were made and its not to inform anyone of anything.
That's a very pathetic attempt to deride something.
Yeah, you really expect people to hire workers, artists, etc, pay for a publisher to print out a product, even paying for packaging costs; and then
give it for free!!
And also consider that OLD cards (collectibles) that are Increasingly rare, go UP in price/value. Examples, baseball /basketball / comic book/ etc
cards all follow this paradigm to some extent, and rarity increases value especially with high demand.
Oh but Fantastic Four issue 1 should be free. I get it.
Oh and look, to think I thought Encyclopedia Britannica (an excellent set of books I might add!) were meant to educate and teach me about things! I
guess I was wrong! It's not about education, it's all about the $$$ right?
Pay with one convenient payment of $1,395.00
No really. People who invest tons of work and time into these projects want to achieve several goals. Realistically. Think about it please.
1) They need a job to pay for food-bills-rent.
2) They want a job doing something they love.
3) They can help educate others doing this particular job.
4) In SJ's case, he is also making learning a fun game that can be played between friends.
So yes it is educational, and yes it's for profit. Win-Win.
