Remember when it was Taylor vs Tyler? Well Taylor ended up being the top choice and both have had great starts to their career, Tyler already has a Cup and Taylor already has cracked 50 career goals and 100 career points. I unfortunately still have yet to crack any hobby boxes of 10-11 UD so pulling these guys rookies hasn't been something I have done yet, so secondary market here I come.
I have owned both of their "lesser" rookies, but never any of their big rookies so I always felt my collection could benefit from improving rookie quality/caliber of these two marquee players. So here are two fall additions to my collection.
10-11 Donruss National Rated Rookies Taylor Hall /25
Here is the first of the two. These cards were released at the National Card Convention (in Chicago ?) and there were three versions. Black border /250, Red border /25 and Blue border /10.
10-11 Donruss National Rated Rookies Tyler Seguin /25
Check out that flex! Cool photo from what is likely a warm-up.
So I was very happy to land these two "rookies" into my collection. True for some (Beckett included) they may not be "real" rookies, but they are to me and actually I like these more than their Young Gun counterparts primarily because of scarcity, but also because they are actually good looking cards and I am glad to have them. Certainly helps fill a void in my collection!
