But today, I scored what was probably the best purchase I have ever made in my 20 years of hockey card collecting.
I bought a 1985-86 Topps Hockey Set for $50.
Yes, it had the Lemieux. It’s not perfect, but I have a few Topps Lemieux RCs anyway, so a less-than-perfect one will be fine to put in the 9-pocket page.
I won’t have to piece this one together.
Yes, it seems too good to be true. Hooray for me.
I also got some other stuff–including a 2009-10 Upper Deck hobby box. Seems kind of unimportant by comparison, now that I think of it.
Ironic that I spent more on an unopened box of new cards than a complete set of old ones…
