A strange box of OPC and some morrrrrrre Keslersssssss
Well I bought myself a box of OPC on Thursday night because I was stuck doing after-hours deliveries and NOTHING beats opening packs in traffic...........
It was.........a one-hit wonder box. Almost every card was a 3rd or 4th liner.
The retros, other than Bobby Orr, were awful - Colin McDonald, Trevor Lewis, TJ Brodie, Andrej Sekera, Jay McClement, Jason
The rookies, if they were UD Ice, would be Tier FIVEs - Ben Street, Chris Terry, Chad Ruhwedel, Drew Shore, Jordan Schroeder, Mark Pysyk etc..........
The Rainbows stunk - Nick Spalding, Marcel Goc, Doug Murray, Jochen Hecht, Benoit Pouliot, Craig Anderson & Ryan Clowe
The Black Rainbow was Kari Lehtonen wheeeeeeeee......
Two rings, Marty looks thrillllllllled to be here heh
These were the keepers.......
Not a super-fantastic haul eh? But then in the second-to-last pack....................
Not a SP or anything, but still, one in three boxes gets one. And it looks pretty cool, I think I'm keeping it :)
On to the Kesler show. I have come to realize that there are only 27 unique Kesler cards out there, the rest of the 962 listed are parallels. Sometimes this hobby is vomit-inducing:)
.......... Alex (TMLxCrosby87) is a Leafs fan but it turns out he's NOT useless bahahahaaaaaa!!!
For a piddly Score RC auto, he sent me this, which I have not seen on eBay or anywhere else in the 5 months I've been actively looking for Keslers........
And now I have THIS.............
So big thanks to Alex, may his Kessel and Ashtons arrive soon as well. Godspeed Leafs cards, get away from my city!!
/100 I loooove this one
Can't spell Kesler without an "S".........two "S"'s if you want your stuff to go really cheap on eBay hahahaaaa
Annnnnnnnnnnd another 1/1
That's it! I'm broke just in time for tomorrow's card show, I'll see a few of you there and the rest of y'all can have a great weekend eh? Cheers!

Congrats on finishing the rainbow! Took me 8 years and a stupid amount of money to land the Hank Opc red not too long ago - really love the look of the rainbow once its all complete though!
That Nordiques logo is awesome too, I'm normally not a fan of manufactured patches but the OPC set is one exception, gorgeous!

Thanks again for helping me clean out those Keslers Ed, they probably would have just ended up in the trash eventually
Seriously though, great SnT and I'm glad to see that completed rainbow!

If Kes doesn't pick it up this year, they mind just wind up in the trash after all :( This might just be one of "those" seasons..........
And you couldn't have said SOMETHING about the Ashtons and Kessel?? I'm 45, my memory is like Dan Cloutier's/Vesa Toskala's goaltending!
But yeah, those 4 cards look sooooo good together, thanks again !!
