Another trade night last night... It had a good turn out, a few new faces, a few new trade boxes to look through.
One guy I've always wanted to trade with was there last night. Now you have to understand what I mean.... this guy sneaks in an hour or so into the evening, stays for 30 minutes, and then leaves. And I never manage to trade with him even though he always has cool cards. This time, I got him.
A simple two for two swap. Here's the main piece that I received....
I didn't realize until today while scanning the card that it was /25.
What did I have to give up in return in order to obtain such magnifigance? I said goodbye to this on card auto of Flyer great, Reggie Leach.
The other two hockey cards I acquired were for my chase of the 2011-12 Parkhurst Champions set. Although it took some doing. This Black and White Rendition of Patrick Roy was traded no less than 4 times last night before I finally tacked it down.
I had to part with a Wayne Gretzky hologram from the 1991 McDonalds set for Sir Patrick.
And finally, the last file photo I needed. Orr vs Esposito All Star edition.
All in all I was sad to see the Leach auto go, but it didn't really fit into my collection. The Cobra does. And rather well too....
