He is sucking in Columbus which could be damn good news for us here in Van. Saw a ton of him (season ticket holder) and this kid was incredible. Guts and fiestiness of Ryan Smith and hands like Nash. Hurting in CBJ, maybe one more year in the minors but this kids a keeper.

And they'll continue debating it forever just because ...

Why are people greeedy with their stuff here? Like possessive or someting.

Lou, you and I got some things in common. Lemme buy you a drink.


Funny thing about premier, rare, etc.
Everyone views such things differnetly.
Take collect- lets say shot glasses- they put them on display- never use em'

THey look nice, but just decor. A funny story here and there, where you got it-a chuckle. Thats it.

You got your stamp collectors or rare books, gott have gloves on just to look at them, take it out only on special occasions but its special because you "know its there right?"

Then you got your old film collectors of sorts, get a print and set up a viewing date, and friends, family gather round and they feast on this rare items.
They enjoy it, respect it, collect it, but its shared.

Not all hobbiest look at things the same, so don't give up on this site over ones views.

The fact is, i come from the third perspective, I recently flooded- and at the SAME time I flooded a rare 80's sitcome started airing here.
Oh I made sure to get it, just ask Lamont or Jie3, with all respect to the devestation of the flood, I still wanted the show.
SO what did I do with a such a rare item?
I made 3 sets, set up 3 trades, and I admit, I got 5 discs instead of 4 for them on a trade cuz what i wanted was 6 discs and the person said hey, i don't mind- yours is pretty rare-
And the condition upon trading it, was make sure you trade this- so others can enjoy it.

Thats my view- if its rare, i like the glee and joy of being the first one to bring the set to the table
To bring back the memory, the jokes, the character- that is how i ENJOY my hobby.

But to me the value IS the enjoyment
Others the value is what they can get for it.

You will find this in all walks of life, in all hobbies, in all areas of collecting.

Worth and value set the stage.

but worth and value breed resentment, hostility , and frustration as well.

So this particular arguement is an old one, with this particular user.


And the fact is if EVERYONE that had a rare item, only traded it for a rare item, we wouldn't get much trading done. Thats the hangup.
Rare is in the eye of the beholder-
This discussion took place over Perry Mason- I have Perry mason complete. (shrug)
i don't consider it rare, becuase they have been airing it here 4x a day for about 5 years.
Webster, isn't rare to me, they air it here every day. Diffrent' strokes, Gimmie a break- all part of the line up.
But its rare to Konfusion who really wants Webster and Lamont-
And you know, its funny because by Lamont they are airing the Hogan family- thats rare to me, haven't seen that in awhile

So he can have Webster for Hogan family- not becuase they are special or rare, just becuase we each don't have the other.
And thankfully more people look at things that way, which is why this community flourishes.

My 5 cents, with tax.

kim theres a huge difference in what we are refering to

you and your buddy are both getting something thats great

but

what if they wanted the great thing, and offered you some reatil, or some tired set thats been around, or in my case

things i turned down a year ago due to poor quality, from another user

then both folks arent getting soemthing they seek

thus, it would suck


in a perfect world, everyone would ahve nice items

everyone would spend the time or money to ahve their sets redone, with great menus and in order, and in a comapct, easily tradeable disc count

but they dont

many people are far too lazy to do the work

and guess whos the ones that are crying the blues every time??

the same no menu making lazy people


how many times have we seen a post go like this

i want ____ and _____

and have crap for trade

then a couple days later

why will no one trade with me??

then

you people are anti new member


not really

drop a new member on here with soem fresh items, thats willing toi establish themselves and stand back

its the slackers that sit back and wait for something nice to drop into their laps

and hows that going lately

Default rare

Yes but people starting out trading, or don't have the time and money you invest, or if they have something rare to them that YOU don't think is rare- Just can't get the items.

That breeds resentment was my point.

Remember when I wanted Cagney and Lacey from you

And you wanted New Outer Limits? To me that ws rare. It was 9 discs short of the same disc count but you said Cagney was rare.
So even though I just made a set, even though no one else at the time had it
you didn't consider it rare.

Tht was your opinion, but thats my point exactly

He who decides what is rare, will find opposition.

I have had people offer me 2 for one discs for new outer limits, still - becuase they think its rare-

Its all in the eye of the beholder.

Just because you think something is rare, doesn't mean someone else does- so they may argue saying they dont' NEED something premium to get it
While you may feel their list isn't rare, and they put just as much time and money into make the set.
Its all a matter of speculation and opinion.
What value you put on something, rarely meets anothers agreement.

there in lies my best point

i do the work to get around

i dont just hang here and hope something turns up

like the consumate slackers do

i knew where there was a complete outer limits set

and i was offered another one on more discs previous to your attempt

i passed on it, since i didnt want to cut it down to a managable size

yes to you it was a long process and hard to do all that work

to me it wasnt hard to find

i knew at least two others

and when yours wasnt quite complete

i was owed eps by one source and filled it in a couple minutes

so a persons perception of rare, isnt a factual thing without a large enough sample of info

i see quite a number of have and want lists

it comes with reading and paying attention to lists

rather than watching survivor


cagney and lacy was a monster hit for me

a mega monster in fact

i still move it, since my set doesnt have the audio sync problems that the other set thats circulating has--

and oh ya, my cagney and lacy was actualy complete, unlike the other one which wasnt completed as per advertised

like lamont said earlier

theres lots of huge collections out there

that aerent on this site

this is a small pond, a nice pond, but limited

thats why persceptions of rare and not, are scewed at times
