Every so often I receive an email that goes something like this:
“I wish you wouldn’t have posted that via-venue address for <insert name here>. I haven’t gotten mine back yet and I would appreciate it if you wouldn’t post VV addresses because the more mail they get, the less chance I am going to get mine back.”
This is probably the poster-case for talking about the scarcity mindset.
This type of mindset occurs in different fields every day and is easy to spot. It can be boiled down to a simple statement.
The more others have, the less I can have
And, in the TTM autograph collecting world – it is running rampant.
