Hockey Card Haul – Part 4: Sets

OK, this is the end of all my gloating, I promise. In addition to the rookie cards, vintage cards and autographs I bought at the card show on November 22, I also hit the mother load of cheap complete sets:

2005-06 Upper Deck Series 2 (base set 243-442) – $5
1998-99 Pacific (1-451) $8
1997-98 Collectors’ Choice (1-320) – $5
1997-98 Pacific Paramount (1-198) – $8
1996-97 Collectors’ Choice (1-348) – $8
1995-96 Score Summit (1-200 – $6
1992-93 Classic Pro Prospects (1-150) – $3
1992-93 Pinnacle Canadian (1-420) – $6

That’s $49 for 8 complete sets. The best part is that all of these sets came in new Ultra Pro pages. So more accurately, $49 got me 8 complete sets and 258 card pages.

I also purchased three other sets, though they did not include pages:

2004-05 SP Authentic (base set 1-90) – $5
2004-05 Upper Deck Ice (base set 1-90) – $5
1993-94 Parkhurst (1-540) – $6

In all, that is 3,007 new cards in my collection for $65–a mere 2.2 cents per card! That’s enough cards to go around a hockey rink 1.5 times.
