Went Fishing and caught some Huge SEABASS! 20 out of 25 to be exact =)

Post by redwingsfan11 » Tue Jun 26, 2018 9:20 pm

Hello everyone,

We're pretty much past the halfway point of the year and I figured it was time for a show and tell =)

To begin, I found a box of old keepsakes from when I was younger last week and found this gem. It was from my first ever Yankee game I went to when I was 5 years old. Oddly enough I still remember the moment of getting into the uniform, grabbing the bat and striking a pose. I've been to a decent handful of ball games since then, but when I look back on it, do they even do this anymore? I know that they have guys taking pictures which you can later request to develop. But do they have these type of promotions where you can make an official card of yourself? If not, I wish they would. I mean who wouldn't like to have a card of themselves as a kid to look back on?

Should have fired my agent at the time because with these type of numbers, I don't remember getting the big contract for it =) Can't tell you how many power rangers figures I could have gotten with that type of money back in the day lol

But now onto the SERIOUS stuff....j/k. Here are the slew of pick ups I have had over the past handful of months. The theme continues to be the jersey numbered cards but I've also mixed in other general goodies in there too.


I'll start if off with some Wings as it would only be right lol

Love the 05/06 Retro design and have actually been holding off since release at the chance to have this card, being that I have the Athanasiou 05/06 retro design jersey numbered rookie auto

Jersey Numbered 71/175

Fantastic design and love to add color to my collection

C'mon Svechnikov! I'm rooting for you!!! Him being a quality player for our team is so important to how deep we can roll our lineup in the future. Big body, good shot. Just needs to get his legs under him a bit more and stop being hard on himself. That will only happen with time, and I hope we are patient enough to grant that. Great character guy though from what I have heard.

Jersey Numbered 37/49

Here is a nice Buchnevich YG Acetate. I'm definitely looking forward to see how he develops over time. Very skilled player and has worked some magic with Zibanejad

Hischier is a good young player, and with time he will only continue to get better. I didn't want to start another player collection, but just wanted to add a nice quality piece to have. So with the combination of acetate (which I'm a sucker for) and jersey Numbered 13/24, I couldn't resist

Through my bi-weekly search of Arvy a few months ago, I happen to have caught this listing. My first Arvidsson jersey numbered rookie!

Big thanks to a great member who sold me this card. Since purchasing it, we have had some great talks! Thats what makes the hobby special in my opinion. Great jersey numbered card, but it came from a great home too.

Here is a nice 1/1 rookie of Jonathan Huberdeau =)

Here are a few Forsberg's too. Man did he pull off some crazy moves in this past playoffs.

What could be the biggest piece of my Forsberg collection yet. Might not be jersey numbered, but no matter. A beautiful National Treasures RPA /9

Here are some few Barkov pick ups as well

Always nice to have a low #'ed Titanium rookie

Loved the look of these cards and went for it

Now here are a few cards from my main "old school" PC guys. Any time I can find a jersey numbered rookie from the early 2000's, is a great day from me.

A nice Jason Spezza jersey numbered rookie. I hope Jason can return back to form, he was such a great player in his prime. Darn back injuries

Kovalchuk, my favorite sniper in the game. Pick ups for him over the years have been few and far between being that not much has surfaced over the years, but I was sure glad to add another jersey numbered rookie to the list. I hope he can develop some good chemistry with Kopitar or Carter and bring back some quality play we use to see over the years!

Here is a nice Zetterberg. Just continue to pass down the knowledge to the young guys.

Being that Sebastian Aho is my favorite player right now, I felt that I should show some love for his Finnish partner in crime; Teuvo Teravainen. There weren't many Canes games I missed this past year, and from what I have seen I feel like they are making their way to being the EuroTwins 2.0? Ok, so maybe I should tone down the hype as anything can happen, but I have really enjoyed ther style of hockey. So now here are a few Teravainen pickups I've been lucky enough to land.

Hoping he can do this with the Canes in the future

Now on to my main man as of late, Sebastian Aho. I'm really excited to see what time brings to the table when it comes to Aho. He's a lion in a small package. I love his creativity he brings to the game, his vision (see some of his assists in the WHC as a recent example) and how he wins battles that on paper he isn't suppose to. A truly great player and a building block for the Canes.

Does anyone know if he has an autographed version /3?

Beautiful PMG's. As I said I'm a sucker for color. Does anyone else get in this happy place when you hold all colored parallels together, be it from Showcase, OPC Platinum or whatever set, and just view the rainbow? I can't be the only one

Beautiful card from a timeless set across all sports

Found this on Facebook by luck and landed it. Jersey numbered 20/49

Here is a beautiful Premier Auto /5. It reminds me of the Kovalchuk Premier Rookie Auto Black /5 that up until yesterday, didn't know if it truly existed having never seen one. But thanks to the PWCC search engine, I found out that since 2004 one sold for a price that I don't wish to dream of. No picture, but at least I know they are out there. Now if anyone can confirm if the white jersey Playmaker bobblehead auto exists, I would be grateful lol.

Another Facebook purchase from a pretty cool guy. Acetate Die Cut SP. A card I really wanted to knock out the way in the beginning. Those unannounced cards are really tricky. Once owned a Mantha Glo-Pee-Chee, but it was damaged. Returned it back and have never seen one since.

Now here is the reason for the title. This card is now the cornerstone to my Aho collection. Once I saw it, I knew it had to come home. Definitely worthy of Aho's nickname, "Seabass".

Without further adieu, here is my Jersey Numbered Sebastian Aho 16/17 UD Premier Rookies Patch Auto Gold 20/25
