I would still collect cards, but the prices are so jacked up now and you don't get any cards.

Used to get 12-15 cards for $1 or so. Now you for $2-3 you're only getting 5-7 cards. There are also too many "special" cards. I always liked collecting the regular cards and try to complete each team, then they started with all of the foils and pieces of jersey/stick etc.

I think the biggest killer of the card industry though is the internet. You used to collect cards mostly for reference material. Now just go to NHL.com (or other sports site) and you've got all of the stats you could ever need on every player.
