09/10 The Cup Rookie Auto Patch Antti Niemi /249 - Patch Quality Question
I know Niemis Cup RC has a large variety on patch quality. Some are plain white, then we go to a 2 or 3clr number or nameplate patch. There seem to be a decent amount of 3clr feather patches ( ive owned 2 previously ), and I think ive seen the Blackhawks eye somewhere. I think we can all agree that the 7 color feather patch is most likely his best Cup RC!
Now my question is, does anyone know the numbers on feather patches with 4, 5 and 6 color patches?
For example, I know someone found out that there are around only 10 3clr Carter Cup RCs .... and that there was a lot of knowledge about the entire 05/06 set.
Im asking because I just won a nice 5clr this morning. I am happy with the price I paid for it as it didnt reach my max bid cap, just wondering how many patches are equal or better than mine ... and how rare the 5, 6 and 7 color patches are ..... if anyone has some concrete numbers =P
Heres the auction if anyone is wondering:
Thanks and any input is appreciated!
I can't be certain but you might be able to find pictures of pre-signed sheets of the cards (like they did with Subban). Otherwise, I'm afraid you're probably out of luck as most places don't document the /249 sets. Also, check the patch database and maybe that could be of luck.
Great card by the way! I really love the options available to collectors with the Blackhawks patches!
Good call on the archive Matt, thought they only did the /99 rookies, but I did find a few Niemis.
