So now that the Sweet Shot love-in is over, I can get on to other posts that have been piling up on an already large list. This is an important post with a great act of kindness and a simple but fun trade to highlight.
First off, an act of kindness from Shane over at Shoebox Legends. I sent him a few cards that didn't belong in my collection and he was far too kind (especially if you consider he was robbed at the post office, insane shipping rates that now exceed what we Canadians overpay). He sent four cards, all Devils, all cards I don't own and all cards I do like having!
Card 1: 05-06 Artifacts All-Stars Patrik Elias
11-12 Artifacts Emerald Zach Parise
03-04 OPC Blue Brian Rafalski
10-11 UD Retro Kovy
Thanks a million Shane, next time I will try and make up for the shipping differences in this exchange and any other future ones :)
This next card is part of a trade I made with Kyle from Beware The Hockey Card Closet.
In a trade with Kyle we did two cards for two cards and this Khabby auto was the centerpiece. Despite his run-in with the law, he was and still is a pretty fine goalie. Over 300 career wins and 46 shutouts, not to mention, a gold medal at the 92 WJHC as a member of team CIS (remember those days). Neat auto in black sharpie on sticker with number.
So there you have an expected card that looks great and some unexpected cards that are just awesome! Thanks boys and happy blogging!
