My most sought after WHALE, and a new display jersey. Worth a look ;)
So Ive been working on a project for about 3 years. It all came down to this last card. After looking for it for literally 2 and a half years, I finally was able to land one. I considered giving up on it out of frustration more than a few times but Im glad I didnt. Thank you to all my friends who searched daily along with me. HUGE thank you to Marcel, who sent me the link to this one and allowed me to get it. I hit the BIN button immediately despite the fact that I could have probably saved a few $ waiting for the auction to end lol.
I figured that with all the work and $ that went into this project, it was important to find a proper way to display it. Luckily, my father is a signmaker, and was able to come up with something I feel is perfect for displaying these. For what its worth, the pesky "E" was the last one I attained. Here they are together, along with my new display jersey :)
If youre wondering why theyre a little crooked on there, its just because theyre not attached yet. I just wanted to share them lol. I now have a much greater appreciation for these nameplates when they are completed. They look awesome, and they are ridiculously hard to actually complete. Comments are greatly appreciated, and if youre a Sabres fan who has a completed nameplate, I could probably make one of these up for you if interested :)

Congrats on finishing the journey man, I know you've spent a LOT of time and energy searching for that last piece. Congrat bud!
