So, I received an offer at the end of November from repeat Canadian trade partner Hugo (TCDB ID:pennytendencies) which took me a little while to get through. Let me explain.
Hugo asked me for 15 Montreal Canadiens cards of varying types, such as serial #'s, silver signatures, inserts, you get it...
On my side, there were 13 cards that either fit my player collections
and 3 that helped a couple of early 2000's Topps Heritage hockey sets...
|I LOVE these two sets, and can't wait to finish them. Someday|
But apparently that wasn't enough, because I guess Hugo had a few extra 2018-19 OPC hockey doubles lying around.
Good ol' Henrik Lundqvist was one of two hundred and six cards that I was able to mark off of my 2018-19 OPC want list. In one shot, I gain almost 35% of the set.
If you're familiar with trading on TCDB, you know that 222 cards will take quite a while to scroll down on the screen, and I'm sure it took Hugo quite a while just to click and enter them on the trade proposal. Above and beyond for sure.
Down to 157 cards for the 18-19 OPC set, 1/2 of which are SPs. Doable. But after I finish about 10 other sets that I'm close to finishing. Priorities you know.
Thank you for reading, and thank you for the trade Hugo, it is very much appreciated!!
