CARD SHOW PICKUP - Temporary Holder

What a great card show today. I went down to secure a card for a fellow hobbyist and ended up spending a chunk of change on dollar jersey cards.

That's right....jersey cards for a buck. It wasn't too long ago that I mentioned how much I liked them. And boy did I find a bundle of them. My only regret is that I wasn't there right at 10:00 when it started. I slept in and didn't make it until 11:30. I can only imagine how much cash I would have spent if I had that much more selection to go through.

Anyways, back to that card I secured.

I'm a player collector and appreciate other player collectors. I do my best to keep a lookout for cards that might fit nicely into a player collection.

I know of a Sean Burke collector and have always enjoyed and appreciated his 'show & tell' posts and his passion for his player collection. So, when I happened to come across this card...

2009/10 In The Game
Between The Pipes Pad Save
Sean Burke #PS-05 Gold 1/1

...I was immediately interested.

I e-mailed him and let him know I found it and asked what his price range would be. He let me know and today I finalized the deal.

It will be on its way to him as soon as he reimburses me the money.

I just couldn't pass up a chance to show off a 1/1 card in my collection....only if it's temporary.


  1. Very nice. Hey, if you believe in karma, then something good will come back to you.

  2. 1st off... $1 jersey cards are awesome! I hope you show off your purchases, so the rest of us can drool.

    2nd... Wow that Burke pads card is sweet! Nice pick up... even if it's for someone else.

  3. Thanks guys. I am a firm believer that if you do good things....good things happen.

    I have been very fortunate to have some kind gestures follow my way and I try to do the same.

    It's so much more fun that way too.

    The $1 jersey cards will be a heavy feature in my 'One Sheet, One Set' segments to come soon.
