Oh value does matter, while our respective tolerances differ due to personal situations EVERYONE has a point at which value matters.
And nobody wants to feel like they are being shafted.
As for ALS, yes. What the.....
I agree with what was said above in terms of quality, and wanting to move themselves up the chain. BUT I think this needs to come with complete control of price and point of sale and right now they don’t have that. It would be a fantastic place to be if one’s Datograph would lose only 10-20% on resale, maybe a little more even would be a good result. But it’s a hard one to swallow when resale might be ~50% less than retail. I am all for ALS doing whatever they can do to make this equation better and therefore give collectors/enthusiasts/the average buyer more confidence in their purchase.
