Dollarama 80 Hockey Cards - Part 2

I know, a creative title.

Let's see if this is the better half (or what I refer to as the wife of the couple because, well, let's face it....).

Well, not going to be any better really because of the traders, so let's work through those first.

No surprise again that we start with some usual suspects like 1989-90 Bowman (as no, I do not need a second set of these). I could do without any 7th Inning Sketch cards, and no luck with a few Pro Set Platinum cards from 1991-92 as they happen to be ones I don't need.

A solid Ultra Messier and a really nice Showcase Crosby highlight the rest. I can even give a little props to In The Game for the decent Gump Worsley card from Between The Pipes. Those aren't typically my kind of cards, but some of the designs or use of players does deserve a bit of a hand.

Like the first half, there are a few set building keepers...

We do better off with the Leafs on this side though...

That Nazem is a great base pick up as I really love Artifact set cards, and this is one I didn't have.

As for the inserts/parallels...what else type cards...

First, that Eric Staal stamping is horrendously centered and does a good job ruining the card, but the Going for Gold card wins because...

it's actually a sample card. Didn't notice until I went to look at the back and find the card number. Really cool, even if the first line has an extra "a" in there.

So to be fair in scoring, I can treat the couple similar inserts to yesterday the same....say 25 for the awesome sample card...carry the one...

80 cards, 387 Points.

So top 10 thus far this year are...

1) 2019-20 Upper Deck Tim Hortons Packs 336.5648
2) 2019 Topps Chrome Value Pack 332.3750
3) 2019 Topps Opening Day Blaster 1 14.8750
4) 2018 Diamond Kings Baseball 6.0400
5) 2004-05 Pacific Hockey Hobby Box 5.9206
6) 2019 Topps WWE Women's Division Blaster 5.6825
7) 2017-18 Upper Deck CDN Exclusive Series 1 Box 5.5128
8) Dollarama 80 Card Assorted Hockey Pack 1 4.8375
9) 2013 Triple Play Baseball Box 3.2588
10) 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball Jumbo Packs 3.2222

I would say, this was the better half with the sample card and extra Leafs, and overall - wouldn't mind having another 10 of these to open (but I don't, only a couple carry overs from last year).

Tomorrow for a birthday treat - going to go through a blaster box I got for father's day...


  1. Whenever you send another PWE my way, you can always include the Denomme.

  2. Voting for the Ranford.

    Have a Happy.

  3. Was gonna comment about Crosby until I saw that Yzerman Press Release. That's a true hidden treasure.
