One of the things I enjoy doing at COMC is looking for uniforms that didn't make appearances on cards during their time of actual use. Usually, that means home NBA or NHL uniforms, since cards from the 70s and 80s used to originate from games in Washington.
That was my rationale for grabbing a Darcy Rota autograph earlier this year.
And that was also my rationale for this:non-throwback form, I had to settle for an autographed one. Benson isn't a huge name, despite being a #1 draft pick, so the price was reasonable.

I recently busted some 2022 Draft Chronicles, so why not follow that up with some of the NFL variety.
The draft product promised Playbook & Playoff. Here, I get Pinnacle.

two hangers there that had a James Neal card as the opener. But we have different teams and different sets (this one is regular SP), so we still have the variety of the repack.

The finale of the 21-22 NHL season's flagship releases dropped last Wednesday. Mind you, there are plenty of releases of mid-range products still to go, including Artifacts, which usually hits the market in October of that release year.
But that gave me a chance to get into a group break to wrap up the season.

Even if it only means looking through the lists at TCDB, I always like finding new candidates for the 2/14 binder. And after last time, I now do a basic google search on them to see if they have some rather nasty skeletons in their closet.less insulting option available if he want to show proof of his pro hockey career. That one, alas, wasn't available at COMC.
just that. I particularly liked learning that he received a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture when he was 73 years old. That just makes him seem like a cool older guy, almost worthy of a card merely for that accomplishment.
