I remember a few days ago, Fuji asked everyone who reads his blog, why do you collect cards? I answered a few reasons, but one that I forgot was.... one man's junk is another man's treasure. I'm of course talking about trading. Getting rid of crap you don't want in exchange for some treasures you can't for the life of you figure out why anyone would part with.
Trade night at one of the local card shops was this past Thursday. It was a really good time. Fifteen to twenty people sitting around tables, passing around trade boxes while chatting and watching tape delayed coverage of the Olympics.
I managed to come home with a few beauties for myself. Only one new Carey Price though.
People are really reluctant to rid themselves of his cards.
Fourth generation player Blake Geoffrion.
Speaking of odd........ A "Rookie Rivalry" card featuring Louis Leblanc vs. Ben Scrivens.
Not exactly the Hatfields vs the McCoys.
But it's a good looking card, so I'll look the other way.
For those of you who have read this far.... can you believe that the new 2012-13 OPC set is coming out in 2 weeks?
