Gorges, Leblanc, Pacioretty, and Two Amazing Pocket Rockets - Habs Fans Must See!
This was a great day at the mailbox! 4 bubble mailers with 11 cards in total. I won't show them all here (especially the football card since that's not appropriate) but as soon as I saw the names on the return addresses I knew this would be a fun time.
First up I've got two new additions to the Max Pacioretty collection:
Next up is the latest Louis Leblanc RC:
I was so happy to see UD finally making some nice cards of Gorges beyond base parallels. This one is a beauty - scan doesn't do these cards a lot of justice.
Not pictured here is the 08-09 OPC Retro Rainbow #26/100 that I picked up - nice to get those jersey numbered cards!
But with all of that, the day belonged to one of the most overshadowed players in Habs lore. Only in the Montreal Canadiens story can you have the most Stanley Cups as a player and not even be the most beloved player from your own family. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you The Pocket Rocket, Henri Richard!
This beauty is from Captain C and numbered to only 9 copies.
Nine copies. That's nine times as available as this next card.
When I first saw this pop up on the Bay I thought that it would be really cool to own. Any version of his brother's would likely be cost-prohibitive. But like I said, Henri's so criminally under-appreciated that I was able to get this gem of a Superlative 1/1 for a very reasonable price. Behold!
BOOM! Hope that you all enjoyed this show & tell - comments always appreciated!
