My First NHL Shield Card

16 Feb

This is long overdue, as this arrived quite a while ago, but back in early January a bubble mailer arrived via Registered Mail that I knew was something worth the price I paid! For the longest time, I’d seen this card on the 2009/2010 Cup Checklist, but had never seen it surface, so of course I wondered if it had ever even been made. Even asking UD staff on hobby forums never got me an answer…but I got my answer between Christmas and New Year’s when I was doing one of my daily “Kaberle” searches…the 09/10 Dual NHL Shields Kessel-Kaberle had, in fact, been made, and it was now being sold on eBay!!

Knowing that there are some pretty hard-core Kessel collectors out there, I had to wait and set a price I was willing to pay and be patient…wasn’t sure how high it would go. I also don’t have a ton of experience on these rare items, as my main players had never had one up until this one. Anyway, I set my price limit in my mind, and then went and set my snipe bid. All I had to do, then, was wait a few days to see what happened.

Well, without further adieu…it’s obvious that I did win it (and a few bucks under my limit), so here it is…the cornerstone of my collection now (it slightly edges my 1/1 RC parallel that I’ll show in another post)!

Enjoy the scans, and comments are always welcome!
