Out with the old and in with the new
This might be a strange title for me, especially when you consider my love for vintage but I actually sold a few old cards this past summer. I even sold off a few cards high end cards including a HOF rookie (My Cheevers). I got rid of the card because it did have a fair bit of value and I didn't actually have much of a connection with the card. I do hope to get another one some day but there are many other cards I could get with that equity and in the end I wasn't terribly in love with its condition and I hope for a better conditioned one or a very cheap one in poorer condition. Funny the two polar opposites appeal to me more than the middle ground but sadly its true.
With that money I picked up two hugely important 11-12 Certified rookies which I do love and personally think it is the nicest rookie card design in the past 5 years (The Cup included).
11/12 Certified Gabriel Landeskog Auto Rookie /499
The Avalanche are a team on the rise and last season Landeskog finished second in goals and points on the team. With MacKinnon on the rise I suspect that Landeskog with either benefit as a linemate or benefit from seeing weaker line combinations from the opposing team. Either way, I am expecting him to have jumps in all offensive categories while still being very responsible in his own end. Definitely a fun card to add to my 11/12 Certified Rookie PC.
