The Great Lightning Card Quest
 
Hey everybody, I just wanted to post a link to my brand new blog for you all to look at. Basicially, it is a journal of my attempt to compile a complete, all-time, roster of Lightning player cards. Might seem a little odd to some, but what the heck, right? Read it, follow it, ignore it, trash it; whatever you please. It is my first ever blog and will also include other Lightning and hockey related posts. Anyway, thank you for looking. :)

Thats awesome man. I dig it.

I may actually be able to help you out with this. I have a ton of base cards around that I have no use for. If i'm able to get some together, i'll shoot you a PM and get your address and send them over if that's okay.

The Fear Boners 07-24-2009 10:17 AM

I have boxes of them too... I don't know if I have any rookie cards, but i'll certainly look.

CaptBrannigan 07-24-2009 10:32 AM

Wow, thanks for the offer guys. I'd feel a little guilty simply taking them but I'm sure something could be worked out. My next posting was going to be a spreadsheet of who I do and don't have, which I will post here as well. Thanks again for the offer. :)

Oh man I have a bunch of old Lightning player cards, maybe if you're missing some I'll ship them over to ya.

The Fear Boners 07-24-2009 11:31 AM

Psh, i'm easy. Buy me a pint when you're in Tampa sometime and you're welcome to some of the cards. ;)

CaptBrannigan 07-24-2009 11:58 AM

Actually, I am in Tampa. I went to Toronto earlier this month and forgot to edit that location thing back until you mentioned it. :laugh:

brymel 07-24-2009 04:48 PM

I have boxes of them. I also have a lot of older ones. PM me a list of what you need, and I'll sort through mine and send them to you. Anything for the cause...:nod:

I have some stuff from the mid 90s, including an Enrico Ciccone Lightning card by Upper Deck. Why Upper Deck would make a card of Enrico Ciccone I have absolutely no idea, but I have one if you need it for the collection.

CaptBrannigan 07-24-2009 11:05 PM

Again, thanks for the interest and offers to help. I'm quite shocked at the offers to pitch in actually. I'm hoping to get a complete checklist posted here by Sunday afternoon, but it depends on how busy work is tomorrow. A new beginner league is starting up at our rink tomorrow and that means working until 11. :help:

Well I have gone through all of my various boxes and stacks and I am off to a better start then I thought. I have 149/287 players, 52%. So nothing done, halfway there! lol :laugh:

I have attached two .txt files. The first one is a list of the players I do not have. The second one is a list of players that I do have, but as a member of another team. (No big whoop about that, I was just on an Excel list-sorting kick.)

I have a *****in' Petr Klima card.

Yeah, that just happened.

I'll look at my cards when I get home, I used to buy the team packs so I'm sure to have some of the early players.

I went through this same thing earlier this year... I was going card crazy on Ebay... Only though you said you wouldn't spend more than 2dollars for cards i was just bidding it up for sets...

Do your player cards have to be with the lightning? Or can they be with other teams because I know that a lot of those players probably don't have player cards with the lightning.

I have a lot of cards where it's marked Lightning that the player is with, but they are wearing a different jersey like the Matt Carle card...

Ah, Petr Klima, he of the spiral tape job and egg shell helmet. To say nothing of his prominent schnozz. :laugh:

No, they don't have to be with the Lightning. I'd prefer it but it's no big deal. Like your example of Matt Carle, many players simply do not have a Lightning card. Wade Flaherty is like this, his only Lightning card is a horizontally oriented jersey card.

I'm not above spending $2, I just have yet to spend more than $2 per card. Buying lots is something I've looked into.
