Playoffs. No one does it better.

This is how you do it.... no brain bleeding club music. No stupid human ice bowling. Just tradition, class. And a wee bit of modern 3D effects.

Time to get it on.

Are you ready?

If this doesn't get you ready.... you're dead.

It's the best time of the year.... playoffs baby!

Last card show booty. Yes, I said booty.

The last monthly card show of the season was last weekend. And for good reason. Nice weather and a general malaise over what's out there to buy resulted in  not many sellers attending, and even fewer customers.

However it was a good chance to wish everyone a "Have a good summer" and pick up some last minute deals.

I had hoped to leave there not spending any cash at all... but a few cards forced their way home with me.

There were some outstanding deals in the $2 and $1 boxes. I could've bought all of the boxes... but restrained myself into just thirteen hockey cards. (and three baseball)

Here we go. A lot of scans, not a lot of chatter.

2013-14 SP Game Used dual $1

2013-14 SP Game Used Rookie Gallagher jersey $2

2013-14 SP Game Used Nathan Beaulieu Rookie jersey $1

2013-14 Totally Certified Nathan Beaulieu Rookie jersey $1

2013-14 Totally Certified Max Pacioretty Clear Cloth /100  $2  (the space around Max's head is clear acetate.)

2013-14 Totally Certified Brendan Gallagher rookie card. $2

2013-14 Titanium some sort of metallic parallel  /76  PK Subban  $2

2013-14 UD Oilers Devan Dubnyk auto  $1 (since he's minding the cage in Hamilton, I had to)

2013 ITG BTP Damien Rhodes auto.  $1 (my first Rhodes auto..... I think....)

2012-13 ITG Forever Rivals Jim Dorey auto   $1  (slowly building this set... s.l.o.w.l.y.)

2012-13 ITG Forever Rivals Lanny McDonald jersey SP  /20  $1  (see above)

2013-14 Select Gold parallel /10 Guy Carbonneau   $2

2013-14 Select Gold parallel /10 Thomas Vanek  $2

oddly enough, both of those are numbered 10/10...

There you have it... quick and easy.  All for $20. Or I could've bought a blaster for between $25 - $30.
