I don’t know how it will translate to video form but how about the “paper clip to Ferrari” trade?
@Strawberry Fields any thoughts on these? They look pretty decent.
I haven't opened anything in a while and never tried any of the monthly boxes. I was planning to wait and maybe pick up a box of SP Authentic but might give one of these a go.
GOLDBOX HOCKEY – APRIL EDITION – SPORTCARDBOXES.COM
Received two more Clear Cut boxes as a generous gift.
I got this back in the mail today. It's been so long that I don't even remember exactly when I sent it (I think it was spring 2019, fall at the absolute latest). I had actually forgotten about it so it was a pleasant surprise. He also returned the $ I had sent to cover the cost of CDN postage. So this is my first through the mail auto return since last February, lol.
Thinking of listing this lot on ebay. Thoughts on price (alternatively if someone is interested let me know)?
Cool $8 pickup
Well I got my two tins in today that I ordered a couple months ago... here are what I would consider the hits from an untrained eye. Not much here, IMO.
I have half of those on holograms in my mind.
I’ll pay double.
Last base Young Gun I needed for my PC from Series 1 came in today. May or may not pursue his canvas YG too at some point, though it seems like his prices are rising already from a few months ago even though he hasn't played in the NHL since the start of the year.
Goods incoming from Ebay. First a Brayden Schenn glove (I think) card won in an auction from my friend in Anaheim's page (check out his YouTube channel- 714 Hockey Breaks). I remember watching him pull it and thinking it was a cool card, so I'm excited to own it. I was and still am a fan of Brayden but I don't have many of his cards. Then a couple Beatles cards from the 1964 Topps color series. I've been eyeballing Beatles cards since I started my channel so I could keep them in the background of my videos- you know, since my channel name is a reference to them- but I always prioritized hockey cards. These were dirt cheap and obviously aren't in perfect condition, but they'll more than do given that they're 57 years old. One of all four and one of just George.
Got my replacements from Upper Deck's expired redemption raffle. I know I wasn't guaranteed hockey cards in return but I'm kind of disappointed. The Kapanen autograph is okay, I think that's replacing the Sam Bennett auto. Really disappointed to get a Marvel autograph to replace a hockey autograph though, especially since I never heard of the guy, and since the card it's a replacement for was of a player I really like (Nicklas Backstrom). I wish they'd just replace hockey with hockey cards, especially since that's the bulk of what UD makes. I'm not big into movies anyway and especially not superhero movies.
That is Sean Gunn, the brother of James Gunn (director of Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming Suicide Squad movie). I think he also did the motion capture acting for Rocket Racoon. Very weird auto for sure.
I know of James Gunn and that he directed GotG so I was wondering if there was a relation there.
Would be nice if they'd do separate raffles for each sport/entertainment brand... so only hockey cards can replace hockey cards, only Marvel cards can replace Marvel cards, etc. Why would I want a Marvel, football, basketball, etc card in return for an expired hockey redemption? (Unless it's a huge name, of course, lol) And vice versa, why would a Marvel collector want a hockey card if the scenario was reversed? Really wish UD would get some competition again
Some recent pickups:
Recent pickup, probably my new favorite card
That's a beaut. I forgot the Rangers even had white versions of that sweater.
Box two of Trilogy. I never posted the results of box 1 on here but 2 topped it I think. Always one of my favorite products.
Wayne Gretzky rookie card sells for $3.75 million, shatters record for hockey card (espn.com)
just a tiny bit of fun at my house
and a few more. I also have displays of Konecny, sanheim, Provorov, Clarke, Patrick, Morin, Hart and Parent.
Picked up a few months back. Will definitely send to PSA when they open up the cheaper tiers.
Decided to buy a 20/21 Series 2 box.
Pretty underwhelming, even though I pulled a marquee rookie (O-Pee-Chee) or Young Guns card in nearly every pack.... except I also pulled a UD Canvas Young Guns Kaprizov. One card makes the box worthwhile, I guess.
Yeah UD Series 1 and 2 just aren't worth it at this price.
I've never opened SP Authentic but at least you are guaranteed some sort of auto. Been sticking to singles but might give that a shot if prices aren't insane.
