Well..it's just about over...my most wanted, highly sought after White Whale has been hooked...I've chased Henrk Lundqvist RC's from the day they were released back in 05' I've had them all but one..the most expensive one of course...2005-06 The Cup Patch/Auto /199 ...I've made offers for it over the last couple years and even attempted to trade for it once or twice..but no one really trades a card like this one...it's either in your PC Safe, or up for sale to the highest bidder..Back when it was first released I could have had it for around $75 but I passed on it..I've always kicked myself for that. But hind sight is 20/20 and we can all talk about cards we let slip through our fingers, or put in our Bicycle spokes or used to pick our teeth..it's not very productive though...So here it is, it's an Ebay pic for now...when it comes in I will take out my little Pic sudio and take proper pics..then it will be shipped off to Beckett for grading..All of my Lundy RC's are graded except Ultimate and Hot Prospects, but I plan on sending them all out together..the Insurance that Beckett requires will hurt, but I want them all to be graded, if just to assure that they are protected from damage forever. Now I need a new Goal..With the National coming up, who knows what I'll come home with !

    Here's a non-ebay pic....This badboy, as well as his Hot Prospects GU/AU RC and his Ultimate AU RC were sent to Beckett for grading on 5/22....tsent it USPS Priority Mail...they should have it by Weds...it'll be a couple days before I get the email they it's been received and it's in queue. I elected for the 10 day service, so add another 10 Business days to that till I get the email with a link to the Final grades....Oh Boy ! lol
    anyway here's the pick...I had to hold it once before it gets encapsulated..yea, I know...weird right ?
