A 20-cent Crosby RC FTW

Last week, you may recall that I visited a shop and picked up a bunch of hockey cards for 20 cents each. Well, the shopkeeper found more hockey cards and set them aside for me to look at. Like before, all were 20 cents each, including this one…

Yes, you are seeing that right: a 2005-06 Upper Deck Victory Sidney Crosby rookie card…20 cents for the win!

I’ll say it again as a haiku:

Crosby rookie card
Twenty cents won’t break the bank
My collection wins!

OK, I’m done gloating.

Unfortunately, the Crosby RC was the only “good” card I found, but I picked up a few other interesting ones, including…

1999-2000 Pacific Prism Sergei Fedorov – numbered 210 of 480 and oh-so shiny.

1999-2000 Pacific Prism Peter Forsberg –  numbered 46 out of 99. And purple-y. Who said disco is dead?

1999-2000 Pacific Prism Bill Guerin – Hey Tim, do you need this one?

1999-2000 Pacific Omega Ron Tugnutt – A great photo of an underrated goalie. Plus this one is numbered 252 of 299. Maybe it will become the cornerstone of a future Ron Tugnutt personal collection.

1999-2000 Pacific Paramount Vincent Lecavalier – Hey Justin G., is this something you can use?

2006-07 Fleer Ryan Potulny rookie card – Potulny is currently with the Chicago Blackhawks, so I will send this to him to try and get it autographed.

The rest of the cards were mainly commons of current and retired players that I hope to get autographed. Overall, not a bad haul for six bucks.

  1. Damn… those are some amazing pickups… I think I'd rather have the numbered Fedorov or the numbered Forsberg over the Crosby rc… either way those 3 cards for .60 is an amazing steal of a deal. Congratulations!
