I'm in Manhattan from UK, advice needed

Please can someone tell me where I can pick up some hockey cards? Nowhere seems to sell them. Either after this season's packs or those budget store ones with various years in.

Please someone help. Booked my holiday to catch four rangers games so already off to a bad start.

Been to NHL shop, but is was a bit rubbish for Rangers stuff.

Believe it or not Target is great for all kinds of sports cards. I don't think there is one in Manhattan but you can try the KMart near MSG since they're essentially the same type of store.

Can't help through personal experience, but...

Call every number on there in sequence until you get an enthusiast? Best I've got.

If you feel like driving up 87 and taking 90 to Morrisville (about 4 hrs) I have two boxes of unopened Pro Set cards from like 1999.

I don't know what stores you can buy them at - but I'll sell you a whole binder full if you want.

British English and American English have both stemmed from a more primitive version of the language. English was originally spoken by the Germanic tribes (primarily Anglo-saxan) that begun to inhabit the isle of Great Britain after Roman occupation.

There is no such thing as a right or wrong way to speak a language. There are only conventions. A language's "rightness" is certified by the people who speak it. If it becomes customary among the populous then it becomes right, there is no official decree of what makes a part of speech correct or incorrect. The dictionary is a living document.

lesson over.
