Mail Day #4 – Leaf Lovin’

22 Feb

Well, despite the poor performance over the last week and a bit from my Leafs, I had to show off the two mailers that showed up today…one is for the Keith Aulie collection, while the other was just a “random Leaf” pickup in an easy trade over on Hobby Insider. On to the show…

First up is my very first Aulie printing plate…and from the top-tier Panini release of 2010/11 no less. Panini does up their plates much differently than Upper Deck, for sure…they mount the plate to a “patch-thickness” card that actually has the back of the actual card on the reverse…take a look:

Then, as I said, in a random trade, I picked up this Joe Colborne addition from this year’s Crown Royale. I typically don’t go outside my own PC guys, so this is very odd for me, but the /75 print run and the autograph in red ink made me do it! Not sure if the red is unique or not, as I haven’t had time to really look around, but who cares? I like it!

    I’m a fan of what Panini has done with their printing plates…combining the essence of a ‘plate’ with the feeling of a ‘card’.

    I like ’em.

    The Colborne is nice. I’ve bought a lot of Panini stickers for the kids, but haven’t really looked at their card products.

      I like most of the products, but they have major collation issues, so you get a ton of duplicates of base, etc. It’s gotten to the point of being “beyond annoying”. I am not busting any more Panini product until I see a few releases in a row where it’s fixed.
