My Most Recent Box Breaks And Acquisitions (Pic Heavy) - rayeates - 05-25-2011 07:00 AM

Hello all!

I am back! I had an amazing trip to Eagan, MN to see my son over the past week-and-a-half, and trust me when I say that it was extremely hard to leave. I miss my boy so much and wish that I could be with him all of the time. The city of Eagan is gorgeous too! So much greenery, very nicely kept, forest area everywhere. It was just a great place to be. We are surely going back and hope to stay longer next time.

While there I attempted (not too hard, mind you) to find some hockey cards, but only came across baseball in WalMart, and was unable to find an LCS. So I just waited until I got home and bought a box of Contenders. I liked what I got, but am not that impressed to collect anything from it. I also picked up three boxes of 2010-11 SP Authentic, one 2010-11 Series One and 12 packs of 2010-11 SPx. The SPx was the absolute best for the money out of these pick-ups, but I did manage some great hits out of the Contenders and SPA. I have also acquired some traders from eBay for decent prices.

On to the show:

PC from my breaks and eBay:

2010-11 Upper Deck Series 1-Jeff Skinner Young Guns RC

<a href="http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy356/rayeates/Jeff%20Skinner%20Not%20For%20Trade/?action=view&amp;current=052.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i807.photobucket.com/albums/yy356/rayeates/Jeff%20Skinner%20Not%20For%20Trade/052.jpg" border="0" alt="Jeff Skinner"></a>

2010-11 SP Authentic Sign Of The Times Dual-David Backes/Jaroslav Halak

<a href="http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy356/rayeates/Jaroslav%20Halak%20PC/?action=view&amp;current=086.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i807.photobucket.com/albums/yy356/rayeates/Jaroslav%20Halak%20PC/086.jpg" border="0" alt="David Bakces/Jaroslav Halak"></a>

And this Halak RC brings me down to needing only 2 to have one of each. 2007-08 Trilogy-Jaroslav Halak RC

<a href="http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy356/rayeates/Jaroslav%20Halak%20PC/?action=view&amp;current=088.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i807.photobucket.com/albums/yy356/rayeates/Jaroslav%20Halak%20PC/088.jpg" border="0" alt="Jaroslav Halak"></a>

If anyone knows where I can find a Halak Be A Player or OPC Premier RC, please let me know. They are the last two that I need!

All in all I think that I did very well for what I bought! I would like to thank all of those who wished me well while I was on my hiatus. When I last logged in I was shocked to find that we have to now pay for the Org. feature! Wonder how many people have quit due to this new ruling? Well... all is available, save for the Halak and Skinner cards! I hope that all are doing well!

Randi, Great to have you back!!!!! Those are some pretty impressive breaks there. Looks like you have quite a few Pens cards that I will be needing to wiggle from you hands. Really nice to hear that you had such a good time with your son. I bet it was very enjoyable.

Welcome Back
Walt

Thank you for the warm welcome back, Walt! I am kinda happy to be home, but sad at the same time. Being with my son was amazing! I had yourself and Hugh in mind when I acquired the Pens cards, and Craig when I snared the Giroux's. I also yanked a few for you guys, so hopefully we can work out some trades soon!

P.S. Here is my Emerald Terry O'Reilly:

As stated, welcome back... YAY! Now there's 8 active people on the hockey boards! hahaha!

Glad the trip went well...

RE trades: We'll have to try to work something out for that Yip SPA FW/AU/RC. I'll see what I can dig up.

Cheers!

Tim

RANDI!!

I am happy to hear you had a great time with your son and were able to spend some quality time with him. I am sure he missed you just as much as you missed him...Hopefully you'll be able to spen more and more time with him here in the future.

As for cards: I could use the Crosby holo and the Malking great outdoors card.....Ive already acquired the rest....But will take the Tangradi and johnson rcs if you cant trade them to Walt.

Glad to have you back buddy...somebody has to watch TIMMY!!!

Sick patches nice additions


RE: My Most Recent Box Breaks And Acquisitions (Pic Heavy) - jafi1972 - 05-25-2011 06:37 PM

I am guessing that the error is that Alexander Burmistrov forgot to sign that card?

Where is my prize if I am right? Big Grin Tongue


RE: My Most Recent Box Breaks And Acquisitions (Pic Heavy) - irishpenguinsfan - 05-25-2011 08:39 PM

no the error is that in the Auto space it reads Carolina not Atlanta
