Major Milestone - My 1,000th Henrik Sedin card
After over 13 years of collecting the Sedin twins, I've finally reached a huge milestone... today I picked up my 1,000th unique Henrik Sedin card!
This doesn't include any expo promo or oddball stuff here, nor any 'dual Sedin' cards where he shares cardboard with his brother, just 1,000 Henrik pack-pulled cards from major sets. (Just like his career stats, Daniel is not too far behind his brother, only a couple injuries likely have kept him from having quite as many points or cards, but I'm sure I'll hit the 1,000 mark for him by the end of the year as well... not to mention I recently hit the 200 card milestone for cards that feature both twins).
What's even more cool is it is no ordinary card, on its own it would probably warrant its own Show n Tell - before we get to the show, here's my remaining Henrik wantlist (excluding 1/1's)...
