I know, and I am wondering why Crosby is not in the pack. Anyone think it is Crosby's will not to be in, or McDonald's just messed up?

Anyways I do collect, and I think between my brother and I we have the whole set

Crosby endorses Tim Hortons which is owned by the same company as Wendy's.That's why you don't see any crosby cards in McDonalds.Probably against his endorsement contract.

Tim Hortons would be smart to capitilize on that situation and come up with their own hockey cards. They could probably do well. I know for a fact my parents would go to Tim Hortons rather than McD's for a coffee if they could get me and my brother the hockey cards we want. My dad was disapointed to find out there was no Crosby

There is a big difference between Tim Hortons, and McDonalds.

Tim Hortons is for adults, and the children just happen to be with the parents.

McDonalds is for children, and the parents have to take them...

I didn't say that Hockster, you misread slightly. I did mean Wendy's. I think that they would do great on capitilizing on the poster child of the NHL. It is a mistake not to. What does it help if he endorses them, I never knew till now? Do they have any plans to give the general public info? They should be all over that contract of his.

Not that they do not know what they are doing. But you would think an organization founded by a widow of Tim Horton would know a thing or two about hockey's impact.

Then again, she sold the company for 1 mil. Maybe they have a rep for bad business sense...
