Anyways, Saturday's card show was not bad in terms of pickups. I started my Oscar Gamble player collection in fine form, I snagged a few traders (which I'm hoping to parlay into some pc items at trade night this week) and I saw this add in the loonie box.
2010/11 Panini Crown Royale
Voices Of The Game
#4 Pete Weber
Originally stickered at $15, it's clear that this card just doesn't hold much desirability in the world of card collecting. And a quick ebay search confirms that. Heck, I might have overpaid for this auto.
In all honesty, I'm not turning down this card for a buck. It fits right into the broadcasters collection I'm (very passively) building. And it gives me a chance to learn a little bit more about one of the voices working in the NHL.
From the card back...
"The 'Voice of the Predators' entered his 13th season as the team's play-by-play announcer in 2010. He blends knowledgable insight with a quirky sense of humor. If a 'makeup call' is made during a game, Weber will quip that 'it's Mary Kay time here in Nashville'."
Alright then. Not much more to say about that.
I'll show my age here a bit....when I first saw the name Pete Weber, this was the image that entered my brain.
His '96 mullet is legendary.
