    Oh yeah, and some other bits of shiny as well, and 2 more boxes of ITGU.

    Which brings me to my odd title. Let’s play a game of trivia, shall we? OK, what do you get when you have…

    4 Calder Trophies
    8 Art Ross Trophies
    8 Hart Trophies
    10 Ted Lindsay Trophies
    11 Rocket Richard Trophies
    5 Conn Smythe Trophies, and
    10 Stanley Cup Championships?

    Stay tuned to find out!



    First, some redemptions from Upper Deck…



    2014-15 UD Exquisite #67 Liam O’Brien RC /87
    2015-16 OPC Platinum #181 Mikko Rantanen RC
    - I’ve been waiting on that O’Brien came out, so just about 3 years now. Glad they were able to make it, and a sweet patch to boot!


    Next, I got into my first group break in a quite a long time with the boys over at Breakaway. An inner case of SP Authentic, Washington of course.



    2017-18 SP Authentic #154 Christian Djoos RC /999
    2017-18 Upper Deck Update #513 Travis Boyd RC
    2017-18 SP Authentic Sign of the Times #SOTT-RL Rod Langway
    2016-17 SP Authentic Marks of Distinction #MD-AO Alex Ovechkin /25
    - What can I say, super happy I decided to get back into the group break game, at least for this case!


    From crjeff (Jeff) came this little shiny number:



    2017-18 OPC Platinum Royal Blue Cubes #188 Christian Djoos /99
    - Thanks again for the trade, Jeff! Hopefully we can complete another one soon!


    From Leafsman (Tony) came this:



    2011-12 SPx #180 Devante Smith-Pelly RC /799
    - Nothing super fancy, but an RC of a CLUTCH Stanley Cup Playoffs – and especially finals – performer is always sweet!


    Next, a sweet package from Oasis (Steve), who was awesome enough to trade down with these:




    2005-06 SPx #165 Mike Richards RC /1499
    2008-09 The Cup Scripted Swatches #SS-NB Nicklas Backstrom /25
    2010-11 Dominion Red Auto #98 Alex Ovechkin /25
    2008 Sweet Spot Signatures #CR3 Cal Ripken Jr /258
    2011 Topps Marquee Gametime Mementos #GMQR-18 Reggie Jackson
    - Let’s see..an RC for the Caps collection… check…two SWEET Caps autos.. double check…and two LEGENDARY baseball players..triple check. Just…wow. That’s all I can say. Thank you Steve!

    - So, some of you may be saying to yourself “Capsfan30, why did it take you and Sanita P so long to complete the deal? There doesn’t seem to be anything in that lot particulary noteworthy or hard to find!” To that, I would say “Well, it’s quite simple really. I have opened a TON of 2015-16 OPC Platinum, as you are well aware. Well, Sanita P is trying to complete the auto rookies, the inserts, and the Retro sets. Well, I had quite a few of each of them for him. However, he unfortunately didn’t have much that I needed in return. So, this is where the fun part begins. None of the cards I had for him are particularly clamored after by the masses, so I agreed to hold them for him until he can come up with cards that I needed to complete the deal. So, it may have taken a considerable amount of time, but we got the deal done to both of our satisfaction.” So there you have it.



    Last, but certainly not least, this easy deal with WHEC716 (Chris):




    2010-11 Certified #174 Casey Wellman RC /1299
    2010-11 Limited #192 Casey Wellman RC /299
    2010-11 Luxury Suite #157 Casey Wellman RC /499
    2010-11 SP Authentic #276 Casey Wellman RC /999
    2010-11 SP Authentic Limited Auto Patch #276 Casey Wellman /100

    - All these Wellman’s put a huge dent in my 2010-11 wantlist, so a huge thank you to Chris for parting with these!





    Now, for everyone’s favorite part…the ‘bay pickups…






    2015-16 OPC Platinum Black Ice #107 Mark Giordano /99
    2015-16 OPC Platinum Red Prism #81 Jonathan Bernier /149
    2015-16 OPC Platinum Red Prism #156 Grant Fuhr /75
    2015-16 OPC Platinum Seismic Gold #14 Anders Lee /50
    2015-16 OPC Platinum Marquee Rookie Black Ice #M18 Nick Shore /99
    2015-16 OPC Platinum Marquee Rookie Black Ice #M20 Jared McCann /99
    2015-16 OPC Platinum Marquee Rookie Red Prism #M31 Chandler Stephenson /149
    2015-16 OPC Platinum Marquee Rookie Seismic Gold #M37 Zachary Fucale /50

    - A little shiny to start us off! Oh, and before you think we’re done with this stuff…just wait until the end!





    2009-10 OPC Premier Black #98 Lars Eller /10
    2009-10 The Cup Rookie Draft Boards #DB-LE Lars Eller /25
    - How about some Stanley Cup clinching goal scoring Great Dane? Yes please!





    2010-11 UD Ultimate #112 Kevin Shattenkirk RC /299







    2011-12 Crown Royale #157 Devante Smith-Pelly RC
    2011-12 SP Game Used Silver Spectrum #195 Brett Connolly /10
    2011-12 The Cup Gold #134 Brett Connolly /25
    2011-12 The Cup Rainbow #134 Brett Connolly /14
    2011-12 The Cup Rookie Draft Boards #DB-BC Brett Connolly /25
    - It’s funny what happens when a team starts doing really well, especially in the playoffs – all of the rookies of all of the guys on the team start popping up! Weird how that works!





    2014-15 OPC Platinum Rookie Autographs Blue #RA-10 Evgeny Kuznetsov /25





    2015-16 SP Authentic Black #240 Chandler Stephenson
    2015-16 SP Authentic Sign of the Times Rookies Inscrubed #SOTR-CS Chandler Stephenson /25

    2017-18 SP Authentic Inscribed #154 Christian Djoos RC /50
    2017-18 SP Authentic Inscribed #179 Nathan Walker RC /50
    2017-18 SP Game Used Blue Autograph #119 Christian Djoos
    2017-18 SP Game Used Blue Autograph #153 Madison Bowey

    2017-18 Upper Deck Foil #223 Nathan Walker
    2017-18 UD Ice #159 Madison Bowey RC /499




    Now, the two boxes of In The Game Used I busted today…


    Box 1:




    Nickname Hall of Fame #NHF-39 Trevor Linden /12
    Dynamic Duos #DD-14 Guy LaFleur / Steve Shutt /12
    Nickname Hall of Fame #NHFP-41 Grant Fuhr /2
    Autograph Jersey #GUA-MB1 Martin Brodeur /20
    Nickname Hall of Fame #NHF-31 Maurice Richard /3

    - The patch on that Fuhr, though…

    Box 2:




    Nickname Hall of Fame #NHFP-08 Curtis Joseph /6
    Induction Years #IY-43 Scott Stevens / Glenn Anderson / Igor Larionov /12
    All Time Rivals #ATR-08 Michel Goulet / Peter Stastny / Dan Bouchard / Guy Carbonneau / Guy LaFleur / Mats Naslund /25
    Super Patch Exclusive Signatures #SPES-JV1 Joe Veleno /35
    - So, would the swatches on the Anderson and the Bouchard be considered patches? The Anderson looks like white paint, while the Bouchard is a blue nylon material that is peeling off of the jersey swatch a bit. Also, great timing on the Veleno, #30 overall to Detroit yesterday at the Draft!



    And now, the time has come, for the THREE STARS OF THE MAIL!!!!









    Third Star:


    This is going to go well with it’s regular version, showcased earlier in the thread…









    2017-18 SP Authentic Sign of the Times Inscribed #SOTT-RL Rod Langway /25









































    SECOND STAR!!


    Remember when I said we weren’t done with shiny stuff?












    2015-16 OPC Platinum Marquee Rookie Black Ice #M1 Connor McDavid /99, graded PSA 8







    Well, I didn’t think it was worth keeping it like that, considering the low grade, so I released it from its plastic prison. I think it looks much better this way…









































    And finally……

































































    THE FIRST STAR OF THE MAIL!!!





    So, you must now be wondering to yourself “Man, what can beat that McDavid??” Well, I think this does a pretty good job of it…























































    2005-06 SP Authentic #190 Alex Ovechkin RC /999


    Yep, I think that just about does the trick…
















    Thank you all for dropping by!













    ..wait, what?























    Oh, right. The trivia question! My apologies!



    For those of you keen of eyesight, you may have also noticed that not-so-accidentally only posted 4 of the 5 cards from my second box of In The Game Used.












    So, what do you get when you put together all of those awards?










    Well, simply, this:























    All-Time GR8s Connor McDavid / Steven Stamkos / Evgeni Malkin / Patrick Kane / Alex Ovechkin / Sidney Crosby / John Tavares / Nathan Mackinnon /9




    Yes, I think I’ll just let that image speak for itself.





    Thanks for dropping by!

    Thanks Don! I think the art of negotiation and patience has gone much by the wayside. Still, every once in a while you find someone who has them and it's refreshing.

    Thanks! The Ovi is now one of, if not the, best card in my Caps collection. It's in amazing shape, too, so I'm considering getting it graded.
