I guess they are not but...
...the owner (2 years ago I bought a couple of cards on eBay from him) was hoping to try to sell them to the Hockey Hall of Fame for $10,000 but he has been told the Hall of Fame doesn’t purchase anything. "They will want you to donate them and they’ll give you a tax credit.”
Funny thing is that he is from Toronto but had never been to a card show in his life. One week ago he was switching between radio stations while driving when he heard an advertisement for that big sportscard show at the International Centre. To make it all short he went to that show and was offered $5000 immediately. In a little while he decided to go home but left his number to a couple of dealers. The same evening one of the dealers called to him and made an offer - $10,500, which he accepted.
