National Sports Collectors Convention: Day 1

So I just went to my first sports show and to my surprise it was very fun and overwhelming with the amount of dealers and cards available to purchase. Some even at prices so low it's amazing what deals you can get. I even got to meet the ever so popular SAL from Puck Junk and Sal's Hockey Autographs. Unless you don't know who he is, a great blogger and master of all things hockey collectibles. A Super nice guy indeed.

I will show off what I picked up in Auto's, Jersey's, Rookies, & Inserts. (Not Scanning all my cards, there are too many)

15 Patrick Roy pick ups for ROY PC. NEW One's HERE: (

Lucky Luc pick for $3.

Luc Robitaille, A Hockey Hall of Famer and 12th in all Time goals and though it's a sticker it's authentic.

A $3 Malkin Pickup, Super Cheap for a NHL Star


A nice trio of Hawks Stanley Cup Champions with Seabrook, Johnny O, & The Man-Child

Inserts (Mostly Goalies)
A Very Cool Transparent Donruss Goalie Set. 

Had the Thomas since December but this Insert set is SWEET, Glossy Foil with a close-up on the Goalies is just SICK!

4 Goalies Trophy cards from Limited. Sweet Cards, Expensive Product

Looking forward to more Tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday

TTM: Kent Simpson

Sent: 10/22/12

Received: 7/13/14

I sent a card to Simpson when he was in Toledo with the Walleye and I am happy to get this back as it is a nice addition towards my BTP and he looks to be a solid future prospect for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Simpson is still in the Blackhawks system and looks like he will be playing in Rockford this year with newly aquired goaltender Anntti Raanta ror the IceHogs.

BTW, I have added a lot of cards to my trade list, so make sure you check that out, either on the sidebar or here (
