By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Hockey Editor
Richard Huffman doesn’t normally show off his dance moves, but when he pulled a redemption card out of a Parkhurst Champions pack, he couldn’t help but get down.
The redemption was good for a 2011-12 Parkhurst Champions Autographs Wayne Gretzky/Gordie Howe wire image.
A thrilling card for sure – one that books for $600 – but in that moment, it wasn’t about the amazing pull for Huffman or Scott McCharles, the owner of Stadium Sports Card in Blenheim, Ontario. McCharles could only be happy for his friend.
In many ways, the hobby is what keeps Huffman going. Read More »

Baseball | 2008 Topps Heritage, Marco Scutaro, Pablo Sandoval, San Francisco Giants, World Series | Comments (8)
With three home runs in his first three at-bats Wednesday night — two off of reigning AL Cy Young winner and MVP Justin Verlander – in Game 1 of the World Series, San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval just might be on the minds of a few collectors.
He became just the fourth player to homer three times in a World Series game, joining Babe Ruth (who did it twice), Albert Pujols and Reggie Jackson.
Sandoval, who hit .283 with only 12 home runs and 63 RBI this season, appears on 849 cards in the Beckett.com database (click here for a Sandoval checklist or Online Price Guide). Of those, just one is classified as a Rookie Card and 207 of them feature a certified autograph.
