As you can probably tell by my previous articles, I love hockey with a passion, and collecting cards is the best outlet I have found to fuel my addiction. In the numerous hours I have spent on the forum, I have found out about fan packs. They basically are a pack sent to you by a team at your request containing loads of free goodies.
When I first read about this, I told myself there is no way a team would send one of those to England, the shipping charges would be a killer. However, two weeks later, another member who More >
2007-2008 Artifacts Hobby Box
Descrition: The 2007-2008 offering of UD Artifacts features a 100-card base set which includes both a legends and a stars subset. The design of the cards is sober yet efficient, with a picture of the player in action on a blue background including the Artifacts logo. The base set includes 100 cards and there are two further subsets; Legends from #101 to #120 and Stars from #121 to #140. The set also includes rookies from #141 to #200 and rookie redemptions from #201 to #242. Finally it is worth mentioning that Artifacts takes the notion of parallel to new heights, on More >
Last month I traded 225$ BV worth of rookies for inserts (yes, inserts not game used or autos) of Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur. Why you ask? Well mainly because I do not collect rookies, I know there is a lot of hype about a lot of these guys, but the fact is, year in year out, the hype dies down and the value of their cards goes down. However, this year, I have decided to make an exception. On top of Roy and Brodeur, I have decided to start collecting Carey Price. What can I say, a) he is More >
The 2007-2008 edition of the goaltender dedicated product features a base set of 100 cards divided into four different subsets. Cards number 1 to 60 are dedicated to future stars, cards 61 to 74 to the stars of the game, cards 75 to 89 to the greats of the game and finally cards 90 to 100 to players who played in the “Rival League” the World Hockey Association. As in the previous years, the cards feature a simple yet enticing design and make for a goalie enthusiast delight. I personally love the way it has a “retro” feel to it, it’s not More >
Description The 2007-2008 Hockey edition of the popular SP Game Used brand features a rather sober base set which is in my view, not an improvement over last years’ outing. On all the base cards, there is a picture of the player in action which takes up most of the space, the background of the rest of the card is mainly white apart from a spot of colour on the right of the card which is of the dominant colour of the team of the player pictured and two coloured triangles as displayed below. This does make for a somewhat classy look but it More >
Description The 2007-2008 hockey edition of SPx features a great looking base set which is sure to catch the eye of avid set builders. As per last year, the SPx pattern can be seen in the background of each base card along with a picture of the player in action, and a close up on his face on the right as below.
The box contains 18 packs and each pack contains four cards. In our box we pulled 67 base cards of the 100 included in the set and no duplicates. We also pulled four of the popular spXtreme inserts, one of More >
