Just wanting to share a few memories.....
One of my buddies who played men's league (where I was a referee) on a rather fast and skilled team a few years back. When I first met him I had no idea who he was but his on ice skill was very apparent and you knew he had to have played somewhere before. Unfortunately he suffered a very serious leg fracture and hasn't been the same since. Kudos for getting a taste of the NHL in Minnesota to my friend George Servinis. Also stepping on the ice

The cards in my store are always posted with the current Beckett pricing and without exception I don't mark them up. Cards that don't have a published price because of scarcity are priced based on comparisons with similar cards and thirty-five years of experience. PERIOD.
On a long weekend here in Canada, it isn't a stat holday just one of those 'we need a long weekend' things so I thought I would do some card shopping. I was looking for a Crosby YG RC to put in the store since I don't have one. I could have picked one up a couple of weeks ago for $200 but missed out because I was otherwise occupied.
