Hockey Card Haul – Part 1: Rookies

Every November and March, there is a big card show in Chicago sponsored by the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper. I almost always find a bunch of cards that I am looking for, and sometimes cards that I’m not looking for but are too good to pass up.

This past Sunday, I went to the show and got quite the haul. So truly epic was this haul that I will have to break it up into several blog posts. First, some recent rookie cards:

Eight (8) 2007-08 Young Guns for $22, including David Krejci, Brian Little, Sam Gagner, Jiri Tlusty and Devin Setoguchi

Twenty-four (24) 2005-06 Young Guns for $29. Mostly scrubs of the “Common YG” variety, but I did manage to pick up Ryan Getzlaf, Tomas Vanek and Andrei Kostitsyn.

Now, onto some SHINY ROOKIE CARDS!!!

2006-07 Upper Deck Trilogy Shea Weber 745/999. For $1, who would not want this shiny Shea card?

2007-08 Black Diamond Milan Lucic. One day, I might actually complete this set. It is a low priority for me, but a $5 Lucic rookie seemed like a good purchase.

2007-08 SP Authentic Holo FX Patrick Kane. It would be insane of me to pass this up for $1. I remember a shop in Chicago selling this very same card for $20 about 2 years ago. Wait long enough, and you eventually get the deal you want.

Much more to come…
