Mail Day #6 – Tomas Kaberle on Black Ice!

Well, Score has been out now for, what, about six months? I had no trouble (as was to be expected) setting aside a base and a glossy parallel from my own case breaks back at launch, and even procured a gold parallel relatively quick via eBay. I was starting to wonder, though, if I was ever going to see the Black Ice parallel. These were only seeded one per case (as per Panini’s notes, anyway), and I only managed one in my two cases, so I think they’re a tad rarer than you may expect.

Fast forward all the way to March 7th and I managed to find one at auction…which I won quite handily for under $10 delivered ($8.00 total in fact)!

Now I just have to get my act together and get my 2011/12 section of my Tomas Kaberle collection updated!

Mail Day #4 – Leaf Lovin’

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!
