Quoted from Pinmeister:

Many of you may be glad to see the higher end collectors values destroyed and enjoy your chance to own an MM, CC, MB etc.
Enjoy the decline.

No one wants to see you loose money but at the same time it's not much of a hobby if only an elite few (mostly middle aged men) can afford to drop 8K+ on a popular theme. With an investment\hoarding mindset, the hobby will certainly decline as owner's ultimately pass away (worst case..)

For the hobby to flourish, there needs to be a strong base of new fans which means having a lot more quality pins accessible to the public. Increased production makes that possible.

Can you imagine if only the wealthy could afford to have cars, computers, cell phones, etc....

Quoted from jimjim66:

This hasn't changed the demographics of ownership,

What percentage of new production pins go into man caves vs. out in route?
