1- I'm french, and i don't know a single person in this country that collects Hockey cards, making it difficult to buy/exchange... (i made my first order in an american store via internet)

2-I don't have a clue as to prices and that kind of stuff. I know what the Beckett is ( i also collected basketball cards back in the day), but i don't have it and i would prefer to have the opinion of people who know what the "real" prices are.

Which brings me to my questions :

1- Are there any french fans that collect that kind of stuff here?

2- Is there anyone who could help me get started in this stuff?

Thanks,

Gardak

P.s : i browsed the forum, but i thought it would be best to start a new topic because my questions were specific. Thanks for reading

It all depends on what type of collector you are. Do you like, a specific team? do you like a specific player? do you collect Rookie cards (like me) do you like Jersey cards, do you like autograph cards, Patch cards.. etc... OR you simply love to open boxes and test your luck.. If the last choice is your taste, well buy boxes or packs once in a while, on a store with reputation, on ebay its good too but there is ways of selling boxes that know pretty much there wont be the biggest thing.. (its calculated by the number of boxes in a case and with the ration of some specific cards) if any of the other options go on ebay and purchase the cards individually, and if many base cards are in your list, find another collector who collect rookies, mostly they dont give a *** about the rest of their cards (ask me) lol.

good luck collecting, but be carefull not to overspend (ask me again) lolll

Bonne Chance Cousin !

Steve

I stopped collecting cards and would never start again.It's a big waste of money.You have better chances winning at the Casino then pulling a great card from a pack.

I was buying lots of cards a few years ago, Card shows,Ebay etc.. When came time to sell everything, Thats when you realize that it's a big waste of money.Cards you pay 100$+ you end of selling for like 35 40 bucks.Never again and have now instead of buying hockey cards have started buying Memorabilia stuff like signed jerseys and stuff like that so I can make a sports room and my GF gived me the ok

Well that's probably cuz you wanted to sell everything fast and at once....
If selling cards isnt getting you the money, well how can i almost live with that?

You just have to now how it works.

But as crusher says, know what you want first....will cost a lot lessthan buying everything and anything just to have cards

Thanks for the good words

Right now, i don't really know what kind of collector i am...I suppose, like you, i have a taste for rookies or prospects...after all, i bought a 05-06 Heroes&Prospects Box without really thinking about it, so that must mean something...But i also like game-used stuff, like jerseys and stuff, so i think time will tell what i end up collecting.

Concerning the spending spree, i think (and hope ) i can control myself, and i'd rather buy boxes and open packs and buying cards one by one...seems like a dull way to acquire them, as opposed to the "memorable moment" when you open THE card you want

Also thanks for the links given in the previous replies ! I'll try to make the most of them (still lacking a "mentor" in this thing, but i have enough material now to get started !)

Not helping the OP at all but I just thought I'd toss it out there that my mother was lucky enough (or perhaps smart enough ) to randomly buy the O-Pee-Chee sets from 89-91.

Something tells me the Sakics, Federovs, Sundins etc will land me a few bucks some day

Talk about a windfall, thanks mum

i stopped collecting hockey cards long ago.. i just recently found a bunch of cards i had put in a plastic thing to protect them

i'm not sure what they are worth:
- Gretzky 79-80 O-Pee-Chee
- Hawerchuk 81-82 O-Pee-Chee
- Chelios 83-84 O-Pee-Chee
- Yzerman 83-84 O-Pee-Chee (2 copies)
- Messier 79-80 O-Pee-Chee
- Bourque 79-80 O-Pee-Chee
- Lemieux 84-85 O-Pee-Chee

and a few second year cards as well.. are they worth anything interesting these days?

If so, it's worth a nice amount. Now send me my cut.

What is the most prized Habs collectible you own

I need a few ideas. I have a few Habs items that I cherish but nothing really big. I have a few extra bucks around now and would like to add a real good item.

I had an autographed Patrick Roy stick form when he was wearing #30 for the Sherbrooke Canadiens and my brother sold it for 50$ to buy some dope.

True story.

Habs wise I don't have anything of value I guess.. I have some stuff worth nothing but I keep them as souvenirs, such as:

- A Nordiques stick signed by Jean Pagé and Jean Perron
- A Guy Lafleur's poster they gave us at his last NHL game(or home game) at the Colisee on March 31, 1991
- A couple of signed Steve Duchesne & Guy Carbonneau hockey cards
- A picture of me on Carbo&Duchesne knees
- A game-used Duchesne's stick

But nothing compares to the 1 minute I had the authentic 2002 Stanley Cup ring of Steve Duchesne on my own fingers
