Here it is March and I still haven't bought any new boxes of cards. Not sure why, I should really have at least picked up a box of Upper Deck Hockey by now, but I haven't. That doesn't mean I haven't picked up anything new. Time for another COMC "Blaster Box". For roughly $20 I picked up some cards I need....well...want is probably a better word. No autographs or relics in this batch.
On a side note, I would like to thank the US Postal Service for forwarding this package to me. See, despite graduating with honors I am kind of an idiot. I actually mailed these to my old address in Chicago. After not seeing them for a month I had actually given up on seeing these and was going to reorder them. And then boom - here they are.
So what did my four Abraham Lincoln's get me?
Some Heritage needs. Hey 2016 Heritage is out! I'm still working on 2009 and 2012. I've been putting 2009 together for 7 years? Crap, I'm never going to finish this damn set.
A couple of Vinny cards for my personal collection. Any card of Vinny in a "rain" jersey I will buy without even looking at the price.
Have you ever traded away a card you actually needed to complete a set? Yeah, I've done it a few times. This Bergeron completes my 2013-14 Upper deck set. Well at least the non-Young Guns part of it.
Just a random card of two of the greatest players in Lightning history. I really, really like the Chemistry on Canvas set.
Yea new cards.
