Turkey Day is over. It's Black Friday. Some of you have been shopping for hours by the time this post goes live. And Black Friday means only one thing: Christmas wish lists.
If you know what's good for you, you won't hit play.
I remember when I was a teenager and asked for my wish list, I usually wanted money. But every year, I put "VW Beetle" on the list. I wanted to create my own Herbie. There would be some form of technology, such as a new laptop, camera, or camcorder. But this isn't about the general stuff I want for Christmas (which, due to my upcoming move to Japan, is short and unlikely: HD video camera, professional-quality camera, nice, new laptop, and a fistful of yen).
No, this is my hobby wish list. This is more than my "Most Wanted" list (linked to the side). That list is sensible, based on finishing my sets. This is a list of the cards that would be the showcase of my collection. It's not about high value, usually, though cost makes a big factor in the fact that I don't have one already.
