I've been collecting cards casually and hardcore off and on and the basis of my personal collection is mainly Kings cards, of course. I have a ton of other players as well but I'd love to post some cards of our beloved team as I find them in my collection or newly acquire them...plus I'd love to see other fans' cards as well. Not to sell or trade but just to show off here.
I would have thought this sort of thread would be obvious unless there's some sort of rule against it but I've never seen a thread like this in other team forums here on HF either.
I haven't collected in years, and even a couple years ago, I got tired of tripping over/moving all the old ones I had. I ended up giving them to a neighbor kid and he loved them. Passed the hockey tradition on.
Well, lots of reads of this threads, one yes (and another in an unrelated thread) and no "no's"...so here goes.
First card of course is the 08-09 The Cup Black 1/1 parallel of Drew Doughty...the best card of his in the world...and I'm happy to say it resides in Los Angeles (as do all of my cards) where it belongs! Just turned down $3.5K for it this week.
I opened this one in 2009 when visiting Bakersfield...that card shop is gone now but I opened what's probably the best hockey card that was ever opened there. It made up for a weekend of me busting boxes there and getting a lot of redemption cards...expired ones.
This is from 05-06 BeeHive (the Crosby/Ovechkin rookie year). It's a rarer autographed /50 parallel of the Matted Materials jersey card set.
Wow, you have some great cards. Looks like you really put in the work.
For Kings stuff, I have to work hard. It's easier for me to open money players like Crosby and Ovechkin than it is to open Kopitar or Doughty. When Doughty was a rookie, I opened 5 Stamkos for every 1 Doughty. It's easier evidently to open Gretzky cards than it is to get Doughty.
These cards are from the Trilogy set, usually you get one autographed (it can be single, dual or triple autographed) plexiglass card per $150 box. They are insanely gorgeous, hard-signed and relatively inexpensive.
It's been so long since I bought anything the only player I collected still on the Kings is Dustin Brown. Got all of Frolov's best rookie cards, got a few Cammalleri and O'Sullivan. Tons of Marcel Dionne autograph and memorabilia cards and a few of Dave Taylor and Rogie Vachon.
Got 2 Kopitar Upper Deck Young Gun rookies and an oversized card from 07-08 Upper Deck called Rookie Class. The last Beckett I have is from November 2007 so I have no idea how much these things are worth anymore.
If anybody is interested in buying anything on the cheap let me know.
Havent bought cards in a while but do have a few Deadmarsh autos from his WHL days, a Lehoux auto and a few others. Have to say the pride of my collection is an UD Iginla 5/5 auto reissue rookie card and a Gump Worsley GU auto 12/25.
