Same here. I found it pretty ironic that he bought the whole franchise, with what amounted to (3) junk wax cases (French Upper Deck Hockey).

Very disjointed doc, with pockets of interest here and there.

As somebody who was doing weekly card shows as a teenager during that time period, a lot of it struck me as disingenuous, but hey, like some have said already..........it wasn't really about the cards.

Seems like the co-director already knew that, but was constantly being stymied by Stu. If they had both gotten on the same page, it might have actually have been somewhat compelling.
