now some of you may be saying 'What the hell is Canuck talking about? The year is just starting...' And you would be right. But around here, the third biggest city in Canada, the card season is over. Anyone notice that the hockey season is about over? Coincidence?
It sucks. The summer is the best time to have a card show. But I am in the minority in this apparently.
Although there is a travelling show that is coming in May, bringing autograph signers and everything.... this is the last show of the year for all the local "dealers" such as they are.
as a plus, with it being the last show until October, they were more than willing to
dump, unload, sell off their treasures at a reduced price.
Speaking of Price, how about a Carey Price game used Authentic Fabrics card from 09/10 UD SPGU.
I moved on... there were a couple of guys with $1 boxes and $2 boxes. I still want to go to a show like everyone else and find dime and quarter boxes. One day. But not here in Calgary. Anyways.... I found these in a dollar box to go along with my Carey...
Carey Price /799 Frozen In Time. This card is super thick and clear so you can see through it. This guy, who spent the entire time while I was looking through his boxes making fun of his customers with a friend of his. Total ass. Then he preceeds to accuse me of cheating him because the Price wasn't in his dollar box. Which it was. Whatever. I gave him $7 for the next four cards and wished him a nice day as only I can.
Anyways.. the next 5 cards cost me a buck.
All of these came from a dollar box.
(For you Bruin fans, that means they cost a dollar apiece)

Cristobal Huet. Huet is playing in Switzerland right now so the Hawks can circumvent the salary cap.
