Allstar Redemption = WIN

haven't posted a mail day in awhile so thought I'd go ahead and post this one.

This is my first Tedenby card, live one that is.

I think it's very well put together.

Only complaint..............wish Teddy signed it higher up.

Certified Devils Mailday

finally back to the blog

I have to say I'm really liking what Panini is doing with their first release.
I've had a whole lot of fun busting score blasters when I can, easy and cheap.

What I really like is what they did with certified. To me these certified jersey cards are exactly what UD should have been doing with the OPC Premier stuff all this time.

So on to the show:

First a Kovy NHL

Next we have Zajac show up:

Now Kovalchuk shows up again (hopefully on the scoresheet soon)

these are some of the coolest and well designed cards I've picked up in awhile. If this is what we can look forward to then Panini is really on to something

My new favorite card.................

I just have to say that today was a monumental mailday for me.
I've always stood on the sidelines as cards like this one where quickly bid up to levels that I couldn't get involved with.
Until a perfect storm happened. I had a made a bunch of sales and was chalk full of paypal. The redemption's from UD where starting to pop up and this beauty came up with a best offer. I put in my offer just before work ended and by the time I got home I was notified that I had won this:

Three Patch's One Card.....Brodeur Mailday

past editions of OPC Premier where some of my favorite releases. I always liked the personalized patch windows and the many colors that could appear in them.

This years edition though, left much to be desired in my eyes. Here is an example.

I understand the influence that the Olympics has on the product but I'm just to excited about a patch card showing "ada". I've noticed the "can" is a triple jersey card. Atheistically for me it would've been much nicer to have both cards as "CAN"

Another piece to the puzzle.........MB30 mail

so here we have another piece to the puzzle.
09/10 The Cup has been known to use these patch piece's before so when I saw this come for auction with a hard to tell scan I was a interested. One quick BBM to Andrew, who confirmed what was thinking, put the card at the top of my list.
Here we have another piece of the red rubber patch which I've detailed here:


without further suspense here is the card in question:

Blue Ink..............

Today the mailbox had some blue ink in it.

I've always liked the SPA Chirography sets. I have always liked how in SPA the base card color is white with nice crisp blue auto's. It really helps the auto pop.

There is a nice clear headshot on the card with a nice touch of foil to outline the box.

In my eyes this is a very pleasing very nice card. It's a PC keeper.

A long time coming ........ Marty Mail

When 08/09 ITG Between the Pipes came out we saw a new addition to an already impressive lineup. The debut of Super-Sized Pads.
Since those cards came out I've wanted one, just never had the funds to pull the trigger. In my opinion the 08/09 Pad cards are a lot nicer then the 09/10 Pad cards.
What I like most about about the 08/09 is the inclusion of the head shot.
Sure the pad size isn't as big as the 09/10 but the head shot is what does it for me.
