I guess you are flat out of Penguins cards eh?
Got a few here and there, two that are listed as your wants: a triple jersey with Crosby, Stamkos and Tavares and a dual of Crosby and Fleury, a 10-11 SPA Limited Auto Patch of Tangradi, some stuff doesn't show up in the org as tagged with the Pens, for whatever reason. Check the tags section of my Photobucket too, I have almost everything that's auto/game-used there.

EDIT: Huge update to the list, as I've got both an auto and a game-used card of Mike Bossy incoming, as well as a Chelios auto! Lots more to get, so if you've got something I need, drop me a line!

Got three extra Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Young Guns RC's available for a higher end hit from my wants, and I've also added a few new players to the want list, so hopefully we can see some progress!
I just made a list very similar to yours. I have a RC list and then an all time greats list. Its cool seeing you go after my generation of player! Anyway here is a Sakic, cheers.

Which generation is yours?!?! I grew up watching a lot of these guys. Maybe not Beliveau or Richard, but certainly the late 70's and early 80's guys. I as always a big fan of guys like Shanny and Chelios, because they seemed like they would make great Bruins, if they were in Boston. It was a heck of a pleasure seeing Coffey take the ice with the B's, as well as Brian Leetch, Andy Moog, always cool to see a player that you know is stellar join your team. Very cool.

Anyway, I made a deal for a sweet Dionne jersey, and a few others, so the list is being updated after this post!
My generation was late 80s and up but im a fan of the entire history of the NHL! There are so many great that changed the game Cheevers to Dryden, the Rocket to Bossy and sooo many others. My list is so similar to yours that about 12 players that are on your list are also on mine. I could watch any game from any generation a be very happy! Do you think it will be extremely difficult to get some of the older players cards? Im thinking that id rather collect recent patchs or autos than RCs. Good luck on your list!

I'm the same way, love watching hockey no matter what era the games were played. I've got about a half dozen videos of game highlights, fights, games, etc., that range from all eras, and I love watching them.

Some players are harder to find than others, but it's more about timing than anything else. I was able to trade a $50 Malkin auto for my Howe Whalers auto/jersey, but getting the Gretzky cost me an Orr auto. Some trades come easy, some are like pulling teeth.

Originally, I considered RC's, but they're just not as personal to me. If I own a jersey or patch card, it's something the player wore, and autographs come straight from the hand of the player, even if it's a sticker, they had to sign that sticker or card. RC's are just too varied. You go back to the Howe era, best of luck landing his one and only RC, and if you do, it's just another card. It's value is clear, I get that, there's demand, it's a great idea, but it's not in any way different from any other piece of cardboard, there's no personality to it, so I decided to go with at least one memorabilia card and one autograph, if possible.

Patches are great, but sometimes they're harder to find, but honestly, I'm happy with just a jersey, if I can find it. Like Ron Francis, I'd like to land a Whalers card of him, because of his history with the organization, even now, but there aren't many cards that have Whalers gear. If I found a shot of him in a Whalers uniform with a bright red and black patch, it wouldn't be right, I'd want plain white swatches over that, just so that the card looks right. Weird, but true, haha.

In any case, have fun with the PC, it's been great fun for me thus far, and is a great distraction when I'm short on luck finding stuff of my PC guys.
I have a Kovalchuck GU/AU in my thread if you are interested

Lots left on the want list, let's cut it down some!
I was able to trade for or buy autos of Patrick Roy, Eric Lindros, Marian Gaborik, Paul Kariya and Grant Fuhr, and jerseys of Marcel Dionne and Jari Kurri for the all-time greats PC this weekend, but I've still got a long way to go!!!

My deal for the Brodeur auto fell through, so I put it back up on the want list!

Cheers folks, let's get some trading done!!!
