    #001 League Sensations & Young Guns (Framed Jersey Image on Page 13)

    So you think buying whatever crap they dish out, and letting them increase prices every year, without increasing the quality is ok. Ffs, they took out half the autos, but increased the price by what, $4 a pack. That's just bulls***, and still you guys took the reaming they gave you. There's no...

    #001 League Sensations & Young Guns (Framed Jersey Image on Page 13)

    I think you may be one of the few team collectors that has no problem with 1/1's, but most of the others do not want them. A lot of collectors want this chance at hitting rare cards, but there is so much resistance and whingeing from these hard core collectors, that it's affecting the rest of...

    #001 League Sensations & Young Guns (Framed Jersey Image on Page 13)

    Well I think it's the team collectors that are killing the nrl trading card hobby. No matter what garbage ESP dishes out, they continue to support them, with this whole "my collection needs to be complete" bs!! Instead of pressuring them into supplying quality products by closing their wallets...

    Mate, I've got no dramas with 1/1's. I love the chase of short printed cards, unlike most of these nrl team collectors. I hate ESP for their gouging and non-transparent trading practices, and the fact that their releases have gone so far backwards from their original release.

    #001 League Sensations & Young Guns (Framed Jersey Image on Page 13)

    Well I've just read the closed thread on the Parker, and am still shaking my head. The seller pulls a card he doesn't want, but because he thinks he got a raw deal on a failed trade, sells the card for $1200 less!! Gotta be one of the dumbest things I've ever read/heard of in this hobby. Yes, he...

    NRL Autograph Cards? Interesting new product......

    I've lost so much interest in collecting nrl cards, after what ESP has done in the last two years, so I don't even look at the NRL boards anymore. That's why I'm late on signing the petition. I ordered a manly set straight from their website, so does anyone know if they are going to send refunds?

    Goodbye Jarryd Hayne

    So he's got too old in the 3 months since the 49ers Signed him!!! I think if he gets picked up, he could possibly play for 3 or 4 seasons, but that's probably about it. I hope he doesn't go to the Lions, as it will be a similar dysfunctional situation as he has been in.

    Goodbye Jarryd Hayne

    No, they cut him today. At least we won't have to watch so many games of the sh$&y 49ers now. He'll get picked up by another team and get time to develop on a practice squad. Laughing quite a bit at the gravy trainers and all their 49ers jerseys.

    Goodbye Jarryd Hayne

    I'd prefer he just run over someone, than take a helmet to helmet cheapshot!! What was his fine for that again?

    For the price they charge for a box, every one should have 2 or 3 "hits". To pay $170 for a box and not get a hit is a f&@king disgrace!!

    So do you just rush in, buy high, take the gamble and end up with a plain patch and loose a few hundred dollars, or wait and take your chances on a nice one. Big risk in my opinion, and if it's for a PC, then most of us want the best one possible, so don't mind paying extra.

    So much wiser than so many. Why would anyone be paying big money for a card that you don't even know what it looks like. Such a big gamble to buy one blind. Let someone else redeem, then pick the patch you want.

    And who determines this value? Just because ESP increases their prices, doesn't mean the cards are more valuable. Collectors determine value, and when you put out an average release, with ugly cards, there's no way people will pay huge money for crap. Poor design, wrong pen's, poor selection of...

    Hey Matt, does the second manly young gun have a brother playing in the forwards?

    Would you like to see Checklists and Promo's before a new release ?

    Just another thought. ESP have obviously had the 4 jerseys for quite a while. They could've had a pic of the whole jersey with a cryptic little statement like "ooooh, look what we've just picked up from the semi's". This would've created excitement. Now I'm sure ESP would be following some of...

    Would you like to see Checklists and Promo's before a new release ?

    Im sure this product isn't designed a week before release. They could show unsigned blanks like other card companies do. Production mock ups etc., and then as soon as the cards are signed, show a finished version. There are plenty of ways to create interest and look after collectors. ESP choose...

    Would you like to see Checklists and Promo's before a new release ?

    I like that they are showing images of signings, but that should be happening a month earlier. It looks like theyre only releasing images now, because of all the negativity on the release thread. Companies like rittenhouse and panini show pictures of cards months out from release, sometimes...

    Would you like to see Checklists and Promo's before a new release ?

    They shouldn't guarantee anything in a promo pack. Maybe one or two random cards, just to fuel interest. If they get binned, they get binned!! We can't control what other collectors do. I have no interest in promos other than a sneak peak at what I might be out laying money for.

    How is it not an asset to a seller, unless they are producing garbage releases!! Why can't they put a few promos and a flyer in magazines like we use to get. Get interest circulating about a month out. Rugby League Week maybe!!!!! Surely this advertising would boost sales.

    This practice of ESP not releasing info to collectors, has just worn thin. I brought 5 cases of 2013, maybe 6 boxes of 2014, and I won't be buying any of this years now. Totally over it!! Why so f&$king secretive? And it's just total b/s to let the dealers presell individual cards on eBay before...

    It's disapointing that they do not have one nrl player on their books (listed on their site anyway). Would be more opportunities to give collectors value if they did. They could add clauses in contracts to sign or supply a jersey.
