I collect hockey cards however I don't buy much from stores. This year, I bought none from stores (minus some randomly packed $1 packs from Dollarama with used cards). I still buy cards but they're from eBay or Sportlots or COMC (I prefer base cards anyways). The reason I bought none from Walmart or Toys R Us or wherever is because of the lockout, I don't wanna spend $ on the NHL. So if I buy a jersey then it'll be a replica knock-off and if I buy cards, they'll be used.
I know most people don't have the restraint with that boycott but I'm sure not in the mood to give the NHL $ (I understand the licenses for this have been paid in anyways but that's besides the point).

True, didn't listen to collector's, got greedy.
