It's fun if you set realistic limits.

Very nice collection Dale. The Gretzky looks awesome. Way better than the one I got graded by PSA (it came back a PSA 4). Bring some stuff down for the draft.

Stuff like that really makes me want to get back into card collecting.
So Andrea randomly picked up a pack of McDonald's cards for me last week, and it kinda made me lose my mind.3 awful meals and 25 packs later, I'm 2 main cards and 1 checklist short of the completely McD's base set.But there's more... I also impulsed a bunch of boxes from e-bay and found a card store nearby where I bought another couple boxes, and basically spent the weekend opening packs and getting back into collecting.I know packs are a bad gamble, but damnit, the fun more than makes up for it. Plus, I think I ran good, and even the low end of the Beckett guide prices total out to more than I paid for the packs.The coolest pull so far is an 08/09 Upper Deck Series 2 Alexandre Burrows Black Printing Plate which is serial numbered "One-of-One." It appears to be the actual metal plate that they used for printing. I don't know how they do it, but that's what I'm assuming. There are actually 4 different plates per card, one for each of the base colours, I think, so "One-of-One" is a bit misleading, and they have these plates for each card in the 500-card set. But, it's still pretty cool, and one-of-a-kind. I'll probably throw it on eBay at some point though, because I don't really care about Burrows, and I feel like the odds of me running into the Tyler Kennedy plate is probably slim, ha.So yeah, anyways. I figured I'd bust open some packs, build a few complete sets, and then move on into focusing on some of the current Penguins, most notably Kennedy, Staal, Letang, etc, as well as picking up a few Crosby, Malkin, Lemieux pieces, as I come across them.I don't think there's a more entertaining gamble than busting packs, though. I'd take it over casino gambling any day, for pure entertainment value, heh.

The funny you should be talking about hockey cards. The big Sportscard Expo is coming up at the International Centre in Mississauga. It runs from Nov 13-15 and I do have a booth (number 510). My son and I have been selling cards for the last 2 years. I setup this business for him to give him some sense of business such as cashflow, profit margins, etc. So if you do attend the show, pop by the booth.We did the last Expo and I sent my son in for the Upper Deck redemptions. He got a Patrick Roy auto out of 3. We put it in our showcase and in 10 mins, it sold for $300 (I could have gotten more and hassle for an extra $200 but to me, it was free money for the kid).

Hi Wayne...I didnt know this, maybe ill drop by and say hello.Quick question, not sure if you can answer..I have maybe 20000 cards sitting in my parents basement like a lot of people. I started collecting cards around 1980 and have a lot of cards PRE the boom(early 90s) i believe. Is there any money sitting there? Is there appraisers out there that can take a look and see what i have?Thanks

Admission is $12 which I think is outrageous. I might be able to sneak you in for free. If you want, I can look over your stuff but the truth is the old stuff is hard to move. People love the new cards.On another note, Mario Lemieux is signing on Sunday but he is charging $179. Do I pay? Gordie Howe is signing on Saturday and he is $99 which I am considering.Also Dale knows alot about cards too.

Yes $179 plus if you want an inscription (like HOF), it costs another $50.I guess your answer is no?

That's really disappointing to hear. $179 is bloody ridiculous, and just goes to show why kids were priced out of the hobby 15 years ago.Does anyone know if Mario will still sign for randoms that come up to him on the street?

Stupid Zach talked me into starting a card collection, so I started with the new 2009/10 upper deck series 1 (which came out today).I went and bought a box, and got a great card with the Dale Howerchuk Game Patch. So I obv went and got another box, which wasn't a great one. I just took a couple (bad) pics of my jersey cards to share.Posted ImagePosted Image
