Mail Day! Trade With Shoeboxlegends

My wisdom teeth extraction is in t-minus 6 hours and I figured that I should finally post this trade I made with Shoeboxlegends almost five months ago, if however I should bleed to death in the dentist chair and never get the opportunity.  Also since the fact that I got around to gathering up my finds to send in return to Shoebox, I figured better late than never to show some collector courtesy.

Shoebox sent me some very nice cards to help complete a couple 2011-12 and 2010-11 sets that I had been working on as well as a few other cards that he figured I would enjoy.

Teemu Selanne 1993-94 Leaf Hat Trick Artists #3 - Love the hat trick insert set idea and the full-bleed photos featured on the cards.  Here`s Selanne in a Jets uniform streaking up the ice; he would light the lamp thrice in a game a total of five times during the 1992-93 season.

Mats Sundin 1992-93 Ultra Imports #25 - Another card from a `90s insert set, Mats Sundin in a Quebec Nordiques sweater.

Francois Leroux 1996-97 Pinnacle Be A Player #112 Autograph - Leroux was a big guy on the ice but also largely a talentless, dirty player most remembered for the cheap shot he laid on Pat Lafontaine.

Paul Kariya Keith Tkachuk Brad Boyes 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee Materials Triple #3MKTB - A+ card that`s going straight ino my player collection.  Thanks Shoebox!

Guy Lafleur Mike Bossy Bryan Trottier Jean Pronovost Ted Bulley 1979-80 Topps Game Winning Goals Leaders #7

Sidney Crosby 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee Winter Classic Highlights #WC39 - And last but definitely not least, this beautiful Crosby Winter Classic short-print card from the Winter Classic.

Thanks again Shoebox for the cards, yours will be on the way- I promise!


  1. Glad you enjoyed them, good luck with the dental work!

  2. I love how that Leaf set had backs that featured the player superimposed across their team's home city skyline, as if they were Godzilla or some 100 foot monster.
