My card guys at the expo this weekend. and buying me 2 boxes of product (So i get two redemptions from the show), but i do get to open two fresh boxes he is bringing back, (And selling me anything lehtonen that comes through as a hit). one of my redemptions is a 1/3 something, and a 1/1 something. So im kind of excited to see what exactly i got. I wanted it to be a surprise, but he told me what to expect.

He is interested in the 1/3 whatever it is.

I pay above retail at my local shop, still going to be an improvement as sad as it is. I'd mainly be going for single hunting, and just to experience it though

One guy here is all like 30 over retail, the guy I have whose never in matches pricing I find online on canadacardworld. Then our other "sports store" does nothing but magic and yugioh cards.

Surmy did you find me sweet lehtonen cards yet?

I might. Doing a garage sale today and selling grab bags of cards. 3 inserts or 1 mem card per pack. 5 bucks per 25 pack. I am getting rid of so many base and useless doubles.

Also just sold my Canucks starting six jersey card for 36 bucks. Woo

For sure. I just did a quick look through of my junk pile for this sale. Disappeared for two hours came back and sold 15 packs

Ashekaban
Aug 30, 2011


So i have about 15 packs of my grab bags from my garage sale left.
25 or so cards per pack, (10/11pin11/12pin11-12blackdiamond/11-12certfied/otherstuff//10-11donruss/betweenthepipes)
I have no idea what is in them.
If anyone is interested in them, make me an offer and pay for shipping and they are yours.

Each pack contains 3 inserts/SP/rookie or 1 memo hit(i had 40 packs, and had 14 memos included..jerseys/autos).

I will even offer a special extra memo.

So you will be getting 350ish cards or more!

Was in a case break of contenders on release day. It's a very nice set, with lots of hard signed autos. Patches are roughly 1 in every 2.5 boxes. Every box seems to have atleast one good auto. Overall like most products some good boxes some weak boxes. but overall I'm personally a fan of the set. Much better than the garbage known as Elite.

ELITE IS KING.

Welp, CNC had their case of each Cup tonight. 36 tins. $1000 per spot in that break. And the winner is... no one. Best hit was a Wayne Gretzky honorable numbers /99 patch auto. A $500 card. Other highlights include Jordan Eberle 1/1 plate auto, Eberle Signature patch, Eberle Limited Logos, Corey Perry Rookie patch auto, Vinny Lecavalier honorable numbers /4 Program of Excellence dual auto MAF/Lehnier.

And a bunch of other ~$300 cards. Howe, Lemieux, Crosby autos.

End of the day, a huge bust. Even the guy who gets 1st overall will be hard pressed to do much more than turn a profit. Welp, glad it was not my money.

So what you are saying is surmys break earlier won.

Is anyone in this thread from Vancouver? I am culling my collection very severely before I move to Ottawa. It is hard, but I need to get it done. Does anyone have a card shop they trust I can get an appraisal at?

You could try craigslist or ebay the important parts.
Some of us around here might even be interested. I am a Dallas Collector, as well as some early Thrasher stuff if it helps.

I've actually only been in one OPC and one Score in the last three weeks. After these, I might jump in panini prime(Though probably too expensive/risky for my tastes) and then it's onto the expo.

Although through trading I did pickup 25 new cards for the Gudbranson collection today.

I was on eBay doing random searches looking for something interesting or cheap (or both) and came upon this: an autographed picture of the fight between Ruslan Fedotenko and Colby Armstrong where Ruslan literally broke his hand punching Colby in the face.



Guy had a ridiculous buy it now which meant he had no idea what this was worth and had probably been sitting on it forever. Well, lucky for him I found it and lucky for me he accepted my super-low offer.

Now why would I bother to buy such a thing at any price? Well, because I have Colby's jersey from that fight :coal:



hahahh, nice..odd to see someone actually have a armstrong AND thrasher jersey to be happy about it..he was the most hated dude there. I still have hate for him.

Hey, I specifically traded for a Lehtonen, JUST FOR YOU, and you dont like it, so i don't want to hear it.




Also in the break I was in last night an Ed Belfour/Kari Lehtonen dual auto from Elite got opened. I did not have Dallas. Also worst tin of cup ever, 2clr Brendan Smith RPA (I got that) 1clr Roman Horak RPA, Daniel Sedin 1color jersey and 3clr Joe Vitale gold RPA /46. Hooray 4 $20 cards.

It's elite. It's crap. And hey I never saw said lehtonen.

That sounds like a terrible the cup.. That product upsets me so much.

The card is a little warped near the bottom, but there isn't any creasing that I can see. Still, by the far the coolest card I've pulled.

I also pulled a Jets clear cut foundations, which is apparently a case hit. So all in all a pretty good box!
