    10 months of Mail Part 3 The Best of the Best, or...

    Hello again everyone! Welcome to the third and final installment of my 10 months of mail call, The Best of the Best, or , Priorities Rarely Initiate Overt Reasoning, Inversely Targeting Yesterdays Obscene Fantasies

    In case you missed part 1 – The Wheeling and Dealing, click here
    In case you missed part 2 – The eBay Stuff, click here

    There will only be a small semblance of order here, but mainly, this is just the stuff that I liked the best from the last year of goodies that I’ve picked up. I’d love to hear everyone else’s thoughts, what should have been held back until this post, or what could have probably been posted in one of the other threads.


    Why don’t we start off with the deal made with ryan2374 (Ryan) that I made you wait for. To be honest, just about any one of most of these cards would be worth a S&T by itself, in my opinion. All of these came in three installments, each just as impressive as the other two. Well, here, I’ll let the scans do the talking.

    2005-06 The Cup #172 Mike Richards RC /199 graded PSA
    2014-15 UD Premier 02-03 Premier Retro Gold #SRR-EK Evgeny Kuznetsov /15


    Alright, you’ve made it this far. You have to be thinking “well, what could he possibly still be holding back?!?” Well, I’ll show you.


    Let’s show off another deal, the first one with allonblack (Shawn) for a nice little collection of Matt Niskanen shinies:

    2007-08 Be A Player Player’s Club #234 Matt Niskanan /10
    2007-08 Black Diamond Gold #208 Matt Niskanen /10
    2007-08 OPC Silver #534 Matt Niskanen

    2007-08 SP Authentic Limited #210 Matt Niskanen /100
    2007-08 UD Victory #325 Matt Niskanen RC

    Oh, and this little nugget…

    2007-08 Black Diamond Platinum #208 Matt Niskanen 1/1

    Do I have your attention now?


    This last deal comes from everyone’s favorite Orca…_Pod, that is, Randy:

    2005-06 UD Ice #117 Mike Richards RC /999!!!!

    No, wait, that’s not it. That was a freeby he threw my way a few months ago. THIS is actually the little gem he dealt to me recently, sent via another one of my favorite guys, kmitchel (Kevin)…

    2011-12 Black Diamond Platinum #138 Vincent Lecavalier 1/1

    That’ll do, Mr. Quaid. That’ll do…


    Alright, we’re almost at the end, I promise. Just…prepare yourself for the onslaught of awesomeness that is about to be bestowed upon your sense of sight.

    All via eBay.

    First, how about some HoF autos?

    2015-16 Leaf Ultimate Six Signatures Blue #6S-03 Bobby Hull / Dickie Moore / Milt Schmidt / Bill Gadsby / Ted Lindsay / Red Kelly 4/4

    Oh, that isn’t shiny enough for you? How about these?

    2015-16 OPC Platinum Golden Treasures #M31 Chandler Stephenson 1/1
    2015-16 UD Black Black and Blue #45 Chandler Stephenson 1/1

    Ya know, I really do like that blue ink. It definitely pops off the card.

    Still not good enough for you?

    Fine, I have one card left to show.

    The reason for the rather odd title.


    Get it yet?

    2007-08 The Cup Property Of… #PO-VL Vincent Lecavalier 1/1

    Where is the mic drop emoji when you need it?

    Well, that’s it. I appreciate you lasting throughout this entire S&Tstraviganza, but myself, my computer, and my scanner need a break.

    Just as a reference, it took over a month to scan and crop each card, and write up these posts. Just saying.

    Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed the show!
