The trip to the local show was twofold. Score a few cards for me, and help out stateside collectors with their hockey needs in trades. I did some set building of my own, and even knocked a couple cards off my personal wantlist. Some of the cards on this list cost me as little as 5 cents, but one went for $5.00. However, only one other card did go for a $1.00, so I left with a nice stack of cards, and barely had to break the $20.00 I brought with me.
I'll go from the least expensive to the most. I'll let you, dear reader, determine the cost of the 7 other cards.
2009 Topps Allen and Ginter Mini World's Biggest Hoaxes #HHB20 - Cold Fusion. This is one to salute my love of MST3K, as Pons and Fleischmann made a couple appearances in riffs, most notably during one of the rather questionable laboratory scenes in Wild World of Batwoman. Plus, it can keep some of the Robert Smith cards in my binders company. Again, it is because of MST3K.
2011 Topps Cognac Diamond Anniversary #530 - Felix Hernandez. SHINY!
And now, for my splurge of the show. $5.00 for this beauty:
2011-12 Panini Prime Combos Jerseys #2 Daniel Alfredsson/Jason Spezza. Yes! Come to my Senators-loving home! I've got relics of both players, but really couldn't resist. Probably two of the players you're most likely to think of when you think of the Senators, and it will probably stay that way for quite the while.
Whew! (with Tom Kennedy)
