  1. Was a bit confused after I read this. It says that Shapesharer foils went from $5-9 this week. I saw this article about 2 hours after it was posted and found numerous foils for UNDER $5 on eBay, and at Cardkingdom and ABUgames. Of course, I bought them all. But before that, WHERE had they gone from $5 to $9?
