Thread: My First Expo

  1. #1

    My First Expo

    (A little late I know…)

    As I have stated on the forums recently, I just got back into collecting again. I have never attended an Expo event. All the talk online….and the Mats Sundin auto session…peaked my interest.

    By chance, I planned a trip to ON months ago, before even collecting again. I was planning it around some scheduled Maple Leafs home games, including the Hall of Fame Game. (Let’s get the game back on the ice!!!!)

    Anyway…I made the trip on Saturday. I was immediately overwhelmed. The collections were impressive and tables were covered with great cards. In the end, I wish I made more time…and more money. :) Great event!

    Now on with the additions….

    First, some traders that arrived in the mail during my time away (via group breaks):

    Not pictured are 12-13 Artifacts Kipprusoff /999, Niemi /999 and Couture Authentic Jersey





    TRADED

    Some PC items that arrived via deals on SCF or C+C:

    Schenn on the front






    This one is from ebay...GOLD version!


    The rest from the show...

    It didn’t feel right to attend the Expo and not try a redemption program, so I went with Forever Rivals. It resulted in a nice redemption card. (Leafs autos/mem are PC)

    Not pictured: Net Rivals - Bower and Plante, Double Agents Dick Duff, Immortals - Newsy Lalonde, Base cards of Guy Carbonneau and Turk Broda











    Red version


    Sundin! Blue version


    The bonus :)



    The floor pickups (all for the PC):


    It’s Crosby and it’s a cool card


    I really wanted to add a new auto to my PC. Who better than one of the other Hall members for the weekend? :) I have always been a big fan of Sakic. It is not hard-signed, but I was immediately attracted to this card. It was actually my first purchase.


    I was very happy to find this one. I now have all 4 Maple Leafs true RCs from Titanium.


    This one is my favorite of the new additions



    The Big Prize...



    An auto and a hand shake with my favorite (and in my opinion, the best) Maple Leaf of all time – Mats Sundin!



    Thanks for the look all.

    Awesome haul!!! That is a VERY classy Sundin pic to get auto'd. The Rivals box coulds been better, but the Redemption more than made up for it eh?? And yup, Leafs cards, they're always..........nice.
