I wasn't as much excited about receiving these today as I was to actually receive them in general. I've been waiting for over a month for these cards to arrive in my mailbox and was almost sure that the seller had ripped me off.
I bought this lot from eBay for a cent + shipping charges. The set of these cards from th 2008-09 national Hockey Card day promotion seems to go for about $8-15 online. The set was comprised of the top rookies, stars and legends of the game. Upper Deck are currently at work putting together the 2012 set; looks like it will be based around memorable moments of Canadian-born players.
HCD6 - Sidney Crosby. Essentially the reason for my bid was to have this card.
HCD7 - Vincent Lecavalier. Lecavalier has represented Team Canada a total number of 4 times in international play.
HCD10 - Martin Brodeur.
HCD2 - Kyle Turris. People seem to think Turris is poised to breakout this upcoming season; others say that he was picked eight slots to high, I guess time will only tell.
And that was it for the lot! Just a few scans of the newest cards I've added to my collection.
