A short but sweet blog post tonight.  It's zoo time at work and that means little time for much else.  It's the norm for this time of year and it's not as bad as it seems.  It helps when the weather plays nice too.

But when I got home tonight I saw a nice little bubble envelope sticking out of the mailbox.  I knew exactly what was in it (seeing as it was the only item I've picked up from anyone, anywhere in a while).

ITG's Ultimate Memorabilia 12 just keeps pumping out the solid looking card, but this one might just take the cake.  I've been wanting one of these ever since I learned that Dr. Price and the gang picked up a Linden game used Habs jersey a while back.

2012/13 ITG Ultimate Memorabilia 12
Journey Autograph & Dual Patch Gold 1/1

Not much to say here.  It looks even better in person.  A superb Canucks patch from Trev's glory days and a solid 3 color Montreal piece.  The auto isn't a sticker, but rather a signed tab that is inserted into the ITG card (designed specifically for this design....a nice compromise to stickers).

I was unsure if I was going to chase this card when it popped up a couple weeks ago but after some quick chats I decided to go for it.  Somebody said the words "run the table"....I don't know if I can go that far, but I do feel pretty lucky to have 4 1/1's in my possession just a month after the products' release.

We'll see.  I think I'll take it one card at a time.


  1. Beautiful looking card and I dig the signed tabbed as opposed to the sticker. ITG always does it right. ALWAYS!

  2. that's a nice card.

    now. break it out of it's cage and let it freeeeeee....

  3. Sweet. Nothing else to say but that.

  4. The nicest card out of this year's Ultimate imo. Well done!
