I Like Big Cards (I Cannot Lie…)

I picked up some BIG CARDS over the past weekend. No, not big as in expensive. Big as in physically big, like this 8″ x 10″ Be A Player Portrait card of Cam Ward. Yes, it is a sticker autograph, but Ward is hard to get an autograph from through-the-mail.

I might have to find more of these 8″ x 10″ autographed cards.

I also picked up a lot of 50–count ’em 50–2005-06 Beehive Jumbo cards. These measure in at 5″ x 7″. Here are a few of my favorite cards from the stack:

Luc Robitaille
Martin Brodeur
Bobby Clarke
Phil Esposito
Grant Fuhr
Jaromir Jagr
Roberto Luongo
Corey Perry

I’m not sure if I’m actually going to build out this Beehive set. The jumbos were issued one per pack, and there’s like 150 of them. And a few of these were doubles, which I’ve put up on my  Singes for Trade page.

  1. Big cards are lots of fun but hard to get holders for them. I have a few oversized young guns from 07-08(Such as Bernier and Backstrom) and I can't seem to get any sleeves for them to go into oversized top loaders. Any idea if they exist? My LCS guy doesn't seem to think they do.

    I am interested in your extra Brodeur!

  2. Cool to see all the different top loaders on BCW, but it is too bad that there are no sleeves to protect them from scuffing in the holder.

  3. In addition to 5" x 7" top loaders, there are also 2-pocket pages that hold 5" x 7" cards. Ultra Pro makes them, and that's how I'm going to store the ones I'm keeping. The extras will go in top loaders.
