How One Base Card Can Turn Into One Hell of a 1/1!

How One Base Card Can Turn Into One Hell of a 1/1!
Good afternoon everyone. Allow me to demonstrate an amazing magic trick if you will. Here I have one base card. Not very exciting right? A common card of a relatively unknown yet history-setting NHL goaltender:

Before I continue the trick, let me dazzle you with his record. He was and will always be the first and only goaltender ever to make the jump straight from the UHL into the NHL (in fact, while in the UHL, he even scored a goal). He jumped into the Tampa Bay Lightning roster in 1999-00. His career lasted 21 games from 1999-00 to 2002-03, playing for both the Lightning and the Minnesota Wild. He compiled a 1-11-1 record with a 3.96 GAA and a 0.862 save average.

Now, watch as a I continue my magic “hocus pocus chiribocus!”

*POOF*

The jersey from the base card is now in my hands!

The back right shoulder:

And the photo match. Note that he did not really wear many jerseys in his career, and this is a first for me to get a photo match out of a hockey card! But here is the match:

Comments always welcomed and always encouraged. These will all be in my museum one day. Seeing it in person is indeed much more stimulating than online, but it still looks pretty on the internet Wink

I forgot to mention that. It is 2000-01, the last year that they used the brushstroke style writing on the jerseys.

Why wish for smoke, when there was Lightning? Smile

Thanks for all of the other comments everyone!
