I find it very hard to believe that the people at Dansco, Whitman
, Littleton, et al. are sitting around saying "Yeah, there are blank holes until 2011 - we've got nothing to worry about and we're already making enough money"
Rather I think there have already been meetings and decisions on how to leverage this into money - that is why they are making the albums, right?
However, having said that, it may be awhile because:
a. The economy is in the dumpsters
b. Let's face it, SACs or whatever you want to call the new coins aren't that popular among collectors which equals low sales.
c. For the time being, there would only be one year to fill.
I'm guessing we'll see both - updated SAC albums with "Native American" extentions and completely new Native American albums.
How soon depends on how much it costs to do an initial run of anything new vs. what you think you can make off it.
But there will be some demand, this is a given.
