So on Monday I went back to the card show at my local mall to do a more thorough search through the bargain bins. What I came across during my search was perhaps the WORST game-used jersey card I’ve ever seen. Look at this 2002 Pacific Private Stock gamer of Shannon Sharpe. Can you spot the swatch?
Having a hard time finding it? Yeah, I did too, that is why I bought the card. The swatch is located behind the Raven’s logo, which is like half the size of a dime. FAIL.
Anyhow, I also picked up some other cards from the bins. Not nearly as awesome as the cards I found the day before, but these worked out OK.
I’ve said it before, I am not a hockey collector. But I have a soft spot for vintage cards, particularly ones of goalies. Plus, this is the first card in the set. Pretty cool card to own.
I own a few 1951 Topps cards, I may do the set. This card certainly isn’t mint, and honestly, I don’t give a flying bleep.
So, it’s not a real rookie, but it’s a rookie-year insert. Still a cool card to add to the pseudo Ichiro collection for a buck.
The card that prompted this purchase is the Arthur “Doc” Hofman Turkey Red reprint card. The card looks awesome in person. I figured it was a reprint since I figured all of the original Turkey Reds were cabinet size, but the card was cool enough that I had to own it for 33 cents. Along with it I purchased the Nixon rookie, which had eluded me for 15 years, and this McCann. I’ll add the McCann to my trade list/’bucket once I get that stuff all sorted out.
