I decided to get a head start on my spending this year, and picked up a couple of sweet cards on eBay. I will not say who they are for just yet, just in case that person is actually reading this blog.
That person happens to like the Pittsburgh Penguins, so I decided to bid on a couple of auctions for them.
The first card cost me $15...a buy it now for a pretty nice autograph...the scan isn't that great, but IMO I believe I got a pretty good deal.
I don't know what got into me, but I saw this next card and I knew that my intended giftee had to have this card. (Yes, I did buy these before the revelation about the relic cards...you can't go back in time unfortunately)
|Wonder if we'll see any of these guys play hockey this year?|
A nice 'graph from one of the Sutter brothers...no complaints here!
As much as I'd like to start cheering for the Penguins, there are two reasons that I just can't bring myself to do it.
First, they gave up the blue and white for black and gold....
Second, the guys who call their games on TV...can't stand them....worst pair of announcers in my opinion.
You will never see me migrate to the dark side that is Penguin hockey....
Thanks for reading, Robert
