But anyway it's been fun so far and I've found myself daily searching Kariya and drooling over cards I wish I had for my PC; someday. I'll try and keep in mind the advice some of you had shared when I began this project, "It's not a race".
Anyway I picked up a few cards to add to the collection from the local shop earlier this morning, the guy gave me 50% off on them so I ended up spending my allotted $10.
Hull / Kariya / Bure 1995-96 Donruss Dominators #6 #d 1850/5000 - This was my favorite card from the pickup, featuring Hull, Kariya and Bure. I was never really a Hull fan but Kariya and Bure were two of my favorites growing up. It's serial numbered on the back out of a hefty 5000 by the way.
Paul Kariya 2000-01 Upper Deck Ice Rink Favorites #FP1 - An insert from the early 2000s Upper Deck Ice series, Ice Rink Favorites. I like the look of those Mighty Duck sweaters but the unique unpopular "Wild Wing" jerseys are still my personal favorite. The card is slighty see-through at the top, nice card.
Paul Kariya 1999-00 Topps Premier Plus Premier Team #PT1 - Topps Premier Plus, hrm never heard of this set before. Cool looking card with the Mighty Duck logo in the background - the card has a textured feel to it that you can sorta see from the scan. Got it for a buck, had to pick it up.
Paul Kariya 2000-01 Upper Deck SP Authentic Parent's Scrapbook PS1 - Parent's Scrapbook? Alright. Card is made to resemble a notebook and a faded photograph of a young Paul Kariya with the current Kariya in the foreground. The back features a quote from Paul's mom Sharon mentioning how he always wanted to play with the big boys and how he always liked to share the puck.
And that was all she wrote for this Wednesday morning. It's coming along.
On a personal note, I have an appointment to have my wisdom teeth (all four) removed via oral surgery on Friday, not looking forward to it at all. Have any of you guys had your wisdom teeth removed, share your experiences!
