This time around I watched a few boxes get opened, nothing by me (other than a couple fun packs of Wacky Packages....ahhhh, takes me back. I may have to post about it). But I did make one trade which brought in what I consider the top card in my trade box.
2007/08 Upper Deck SP Authentic
Sign Of The TImes
#ST-JT Jonathan Toews
When I walked into the shop, I was immediately asked if I had any Young Guns from this season's Upper Deck Series I. I did. And after filtering out the one card that the other person needed, I immediately started sifting his trade box for an on par return.
I didn't find anything that was in the ballpark, but did see this sweet looking Toews auto. So I asked if there was anything else I could offer to even up the deal.
It didn't take long and the Toews was mine.
It was nice to make a trade and not bring in anything that'll go into any projects or collections of mine. It was a trade so that I could have something different in my trade box.
Little did I know at the time that this card comes from his rookie season in the NHL. Graded copies go for a good chunk of change. Makes me want to take a closer look at this one.
Even if I don't get it graded, I think it's a super card to have in my arsenal. I had a couple people look at it already. So here's hoping I can parlay it into a Linden or two.
