Epic Irbe Super-Collection Expansion: A Feast for All Senses (Game-used and more!)
#1

Epic Irbe Super-Collection Expansion: A Feast for All Senses (Game-used and more!)
Hello to everyone, you may know me as I have a posh little Irbe collection. I have not posted a recent acquisition thread in sometime due to my wanting every thread to be a rare treat instead of a stale re-used bag of chips that everyone grows tired of, but everyone continually goes back to regardless of the health implication and the flavour.

Anyways, I have been busy with work, but never too busy to keep on expanding the ole' Irbe collection. THis thread will represent all of my Irbe acquisitions from July 18, 2012 to now. The quantity is not in the hundreds, but the quality is there and the cost for these has been in the thousands. I am currently standing at 788 unique Irbe cards and countless other unique items!

Anyways, get your eyes ready as we start with the more standard stuff. Every exercise needs a warm-up, so why not every show and tell thread.

1997-98 Pacific Red

Some cameo cards (cards of other players which feature Irbe somewhere in them)

And if you would believe it, that is where the boring stuff ends. Now comes the oddballs, rare and eclectic pieces that don't quite fit in any category but are invaluable additions to my collection:

And claiming the number one spot is this beauty, a rare piece as any fan of Irbe can attest to...a game-used Vancouver Canucks stick of his from the 1997-98 season:

That Gold Label Black is nasty...well, it's all pretty gross but especially the 1/1. Ooo, and the buyback auto - how many copies of that are there? To the untrained eye, it looks like one of his all-time best AU cards. Amazing show dude...something for everyone.

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate it. I am assuming that this card would have less than 30 copies out there. It is the toughest to find of all of the BAP buybacks...or at least I have found.

And the Sean Hill base card is an excellent Irbe addition. When my dad saw it, he called me "strange".

Some amazing adds, Bruce! That stick is amazing, and I had a good laugh at the "Spot The Irbe" cards! Congrats on the brilliant haul!
