Kraft dinner!

my first Check Out My Cards order arrived a couple of weeks ago. 113 cards. Of which, 8 were of the hockey variety.
Only 8? Yeah... hockey cards are just a wee overpriced on comc. Must be a lot of Calgary sellers on there or something. Maybe they think it's an online showroom or something...
I picked up one card to go towards one of my sets, the other seven cards went into my player collections.
The first card I went for after attending our hopefully annual huge card show here in Big C. The seller had a graded 10 copy of it, and also a hefty $30 price tag.
I grabbed a mint, sharp cornered, well centered version for $0.35 cents. It's a 1986 Kraft Dinner card of Chris Nilan.
 I like mine better.

For Knuckles, I also obtained a 1991-92 Stadium Club for $0.60....

 and a snazzy 91-92 Bowman for $0.50
 Keep in mind I would never pay these prices in person, but on comc I sell crap I don't want dirt cheap, then use that to purchase cards I do. So I don't mind paying a little more.... a little.

Sticking with the same theme.... I got four cards of Lyle Odelein as well.

A gold parallel from 1994-95 Parkhurst SE for $0.63

and a copper parallel from 2000-01 Paramount for $0.70

Jersey card alert! 2000-01 Titanium Draft Day for $1.25. I can't believe how thin this thing is...

and an on card auto from 1995-96 Be A Pplayer for $1.25 as well.

a single card of Carey Price that no one around here would ever trade me. From last year's Fleer Retro set, the metal parallel for $1.00 It doesn't scan very well...

and finally a mask insert for the 2013 ITG:BTP mask subset.for another $1.00.
I'm slowly building this set... these are hard to find at realistic prices.

So there they are... I had fun shopping for them. And they all look fantastic in their respective binders.
