So....can someone explain to me why, according to the organizer, there is a Canvas YG of Petr Mrazek, but not a regular one?
Oh that is a great question, the answer is of course not an easy one, many would speculate that a mistake was made. That would probably be the easy answer but i like to think that it is just because that is the way they did it.
They have to save some of the Young Guns for series 2. There's also a Ryan Spooner Canvas, but no YG. I'm sure they'll be in S2.

They want to tease us! I cannot wait to add that Young Gun to my mini Mrazek collection.

Apparently the canvas set is not a direct parallel of the base set this year. For instance, there is a canvas YG of Brendan Gallagher in Series 1, but the base YG will be in series 2.

Why they chose to do that, I have no idea.
The canvas inserts have NEVER been a direct parallel of the base set. Never marketed as such. For me I would have like to see the rookies only have a YG in 1 series and the canvas in the other. So that all the big hit rookies would have something in both.
Historically it's happened at least once that a player had a YG Canvas but no regular Young Guns card ...

The one i'm thinking of is Andrew Shaw who was in Series 2 YG Canvas but didn't have a regular version. There may be more but i haven't been following hockey cards for a while and can't think of others.

PS. Wow. This is my first post in over a year. It's been a while.
They split some YGs so you have to buy both products lol. Simples Big Grin And some of the ones that dont have a regular YG wont have a Rookie Materials or whatever, so that way ya gotta buy Series 1, and Series 2 lol. Well thats what they hope.
