Ebay Auto Lot Purchase - Panini Certified

Received an eBay purchase of mine yesterday and I felt it was a total steal. I like the Panini Certified product, however at 12 bucks a pack, I find it a little rich for my blood. But, I won this lot for $7.00 including shipping (almost half the price of one pack). So in the end, each card cost less than two bucks a piece and they are all rookies #/1299 how could I go wrong....

Noreau wasn't the reason why I bought this lot.

However, he was a pretty solid offensive defenseman both in junior and in the AHL. His past two AHL seasons have him scoring 28 goals and 104 points in 152 games. Could have Tobias Enstrom potential in my opinion.

Nick Johnson, again not the reason why I bought this lot.

I seem to be getting Nick here and there. I pulled him from a pack of SPx as well so maybe I should be jumping on the Johnson bandwagon! He is a power forward with some potential, though I am not sure if Pens fans are thinking he has second line potential or not. I don't see him riding shotgun to Crosby.

Jamie McBain is one reason why I bought this lot
McBain is one of the best prospects in the Hurricanes system and this past season had a great rookie year scoring 30 points in 76 games which was good enough for 5th among rookie defenseman. I think he could be every bit as good as Keith Yandle.

Dustin Tokarski the main reason why I bought the lot.

Reasons why? Read yesterday's post. I love this guy and playing for a Tampa team that will be strong for years to come can't hurt Dustin's chances at winning a few games.

I would have a hard time scoring four TTMs for the price I paid for these 4 including shipping. So as I mentioned before, if you want affordable autographs, eBay lots purchases are often a good way to go(especially from companies like Panini, ITG and Pinnacle).
