Returned home from a weekend away and had 5 successes waiting for me as well as a few cards from an AFL consignment.
Gustav Nyquist 1/1 c/o Grand Rapids Griffins in 8 days
Great success from one of Detroit's top offensive prospects. He had 1 goal and 6 assists in his first 18 games of NHL action last season.
Patrice Cormier 1/1 c/o St. John's IceCaps in 26 days
Nice success from the young Jets' center and former Devils' draft pick and prospect who was traded in part of the Kovy deal.
Adam Henrique 1/1 c/o Albany Devils in 30 days
Absolutely awesome success from one of my favorite players in the entire NHL right now. I will seriously never forget his OT goal that eliminated the Rangers for as long as I live. "HENRIQUE! IT'S OVER!" So glad to get his sig.
Jimmy Nielsen 1/1 c/o Sporting KC in 62 days
Nice success from one of the best goalkeepers in the MLS right now. Since coming to KC in 2010, he's been an All-Star twice and has helped turn KC into a powerhouse.
Justin Turner c/o Mets in 545 days
WOW! Never thought I was gonna see this one again. This was made back when I was fooling around with creating customs and was sent early in the 2011 season. Definitely cool to get it back after this long as I think Turner is a pretty good utility infielder for the Mets.
And 3 prospect returns from a consignment done through SCN:
Kaleb Cowart - Angels top prospect
Grant Green - Oakland A's top prospect
Kevin Quackenbush - Padres relief pitching prospect

After a slow last week, this week started off well with a few successes, a couple of cheap purchases, and some cards coming in from a 50/50.
First, the TTMs
Tyler Wotherspoon 1/1 c/o Portland Winterhawks in 10 days
Nice success from the Flames defensive prospect. He was a 2nd round pick in the 2011 draft and has shown potential during his time in the WHL.
Keith Aulie 1/1 c/o Syracuse Crunch in 33 days
Great success from the Lightning defensive prospect. He has all the talent and potential to be a 2nd or 3rd pairing d-man in the NHL and should bring some much needed size and strength to the Tampa blue line.
Omar Cummings 1/1 c/o Colorado Rapids in 61 days
Nice success from the Rapids forward and member of the 2010 MLS Cup team. He's also a member of the Jamaican national team.
And here are some 50/50s from a deal done with a member from here, everythingcollect.
Miguel Sano 1/1
Widely considered the Twins #1 prospect.
Eddie Rosario 1/1
Another Twins top prospect
Kes Carter 1/1
Rays outfield prospect
And a couple of cheap purchases
I've never had any luck with him TTM so for a few bucks I couldn't resist snagging this.
Another guy I haven't had any TTM luck with.
I'll pick up pretty much any hockey autograph if it's cheap haha.

Two TTMs today, including a long wait.
Dan Ellis 1/1 c/o Charlotte Checkers in 34 days
Nice success from one of the better back-ups in the NHL. I remember when he was just an absolute beast with Nashville a few years ago. It seemed like he was standing on his head every night.
Borje Salming 1/1 c/o business in Sweden (postmarked from NY though) in 304 days
Awesome success from one of the greatest European NHLers of all-time and a HOFer. Definitely never thought this one was coming back.
11-27-2012, 09:07 PM #527
I love the AHL successes! Do you find that these guys sign better in the AHL than when they're in the big show?
11-29-2012, 05:12 PM #528
Anyway, just one return today, but it's a good one.
J.J. Watt 1/1 c/o Houston Texans in 92 days
Awesome return from one of the most feared defensive players in the entire NFL. Dude is an absolute beast. It's a shame it smeared a bit but I couldn't care less, I'm just stoked to add him to my collection.

Good luck man. I'm 1 for 2 with them this year. Success from Luke Adam, nothing yet from Hodgson. Was thinking about trying Girgensons as well but people on SCN are 0-2 with him so far so idk.
