My old hockey coach 10 years ago gave me a ken dryden rookie card in mint condition in a case... was worth 300 when he gave it to me .. told me when i was his age it would be worth a lot! plus i have a bout a million other cards.. ima big time collector
I was wondering if any of you guys here are hockey cards collectors.
Might be fun to have a sticky or something *official* for us
I'm asking that because If there is a couple of collectors here maybe we could talk about our collection, the player we collect, The cards we are missing and everything around this hobby.
We could maybe Make some Selling / Buying / Trading over the fans of the habs wich would be great. And at the same time complete our series.
If there is any collector interested in talking about this habby well just let us know here! and by the way, i'm starting a store slowly with a partner so maybe we have stuff your looing for and *vice-versa*
Let the party begin
My dad and I used to collect a lot. We even had full sets from the 40's seasons with Gordie Howe rookie card, etc. Never owned a gretzky rookie card tho, had an assload of Jagr/Lindros etc rookie cards which were from later collections. Had many older rookie cards and such, dad sold em all.
We pretty much only have a few jersey's/sticks left. Bobby Orr signed stick, etc.
I've been collecting for about 20 years off and on....
I enjoy collecting series in which I can complete. Such as Upper Deck, Fleer Ultra, Score, Fleer and so on..... That black Diamond, artifacts and the Cup stuff is just too much $$$$.
Before i get absolutly ripped for this.......
I collect the following players:
Jose Thodore (I have well over 150..couldn't stop becuase of his play, it's like an
addiction now..close to 20 RC alone)
Other sports Include:
I have thousands of cards I will trade, sell... If your looking for those few singles to complete your sets from last year..let me know... We could work something out...I myself are looking to complete a couple sets from this year and last....
This seems like a great idea to start.
beckett has something similar, but even since I got hosed in a trade I don't use it anymore.
