Ending with the Showcase and a PWE

No - this isn't The Price Is Right...though that would have been a good lead into getting Carey Price cards...

Wow - that's three packs in a row with the Crosby insert - what are the odds? Well there are 5 cards in the insert, and the odds are every three packs, assuming equal distribution, that's a Crosby every 15 three in a row...that's one in 3,375 odds for three Crosby All Star inserts in a row.

A great way to end, with an Auston insert highlighting his help in leading the Leafs to a 4-1 start to the 2017-18 season.

We also end the 23 packs with 43 of the 120 cards for the base set. A good start, but plenty to slowly add to it.

23 packs, 69 cards, 234 points

Given the low number of cards and high number of inserts, figured this would be near the top, and it slots in at #6 on the list for this year.

If you are still reading - thank you as I have a small PWE to share as well. I got a PWE trade offer from Robert at $30 A Week Habit - and how could I say no?

One card help to the early 90s Upper Deck sets as I do want to finish those off one day - though still a good while before that happens. Add to that some Leafs...

Don't worry - the cards were fine, my scan was not - somehow missed the top bit of the cards (oops). Any Gilmour is a great card in my opinion, as is a Canvas card. I may not be a fan of the feel of the cards, but like what they are trying to go for.

Thanks for the great little trade Robert!


  1. Nice Bondra rookie card! There was a time when I thought he was headed for the HOF. It'll be interesting to see if he gets in eventually.

    1. Agreed - I felt the same too as there was a point when he was a dominant player in the league, but may not have been long enough to make the hall - time will tell.
