Karine's Thoughts

In a nutshell, things I find interesting these days and happenings in our card collecting community!

  1. My Best Hobby Day so Far...

    I came back to the hobby in early 2007 and boy had it changed since I left it. Back in the days when I was still collecting the game-used phenomenon had yet to hit the masses and the emphasis was still on completing sets. That was back in 1995 or something like that... Fast forward to 2007 and being stuck at home after yet another knee operation, I decided I needed to find a hobby if I didn't want to go completely bonkers. Having moved to England in 2002, I was missing hockey dearly and taking up ...

  2. After Roy...Brodeur time...

    Having finally sorted out all of my Roy cards earlier this week, I decided to do the same for my second main guy; Martin Brodeur. It took some time, but I did it. I started by importing the checklist to the application Luc made before entering each of the cards I have in my inventory.

    Overall, the new winningest goalie in history has got over 4,700 cards, again quite an impressive total! Of those, 534 are autographs and 1,726 have a piece of memorabilia. Impressive number...Ever since ...

    As most of you no doubt know by now, I collect Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur. Although, to be honest, Martin is the number two guy and my first priority has always been Patrick...Why? Probably because he is the one I grew up idolizing and mimicking (from the butterfly style to the bad temper and even to that wink, I did it all).

  4. National Fifth and Final day

    Today was the last day of the Nationals and it was quite a good day for all of us. It was less busy than the last two days but our giveaway still managed to draw a bit of a crowd. Debbie Herrmann was the lucky winner of a triple autograph card numbered to only five and ?I must say that her son looked absolutely chuffed.

    Today, I had planned to stay at the booth for most of the day however, things did not go as planned...My husband and sister in law who came to Cleveland with me attended ...

  5. Nationals Day 4

    Today was yet another great day for SCF at the Nationals! There were numerous highlights to my day starting with the interview I did with Chris Carlin from Upper Deck, a really nice guy who answers every question openly and doesn't shy away from giving you information! Thanks for your time Chris I really appreciated it. You will all be able to read the full interview in the next edition of Collector's Corner which should be out on the 10th August (delayed a bit because of the Nationals).
