It's been a little while since I added to my Upper Deck 300 Win Club set. After missing a couple of key auctions on a few cards which bummed me out, luck finally was on my side as I was able to snag the Barrasso stick card recently.
This Tom Barrasso card was a big piece for the set, as he has a ton of collectors out there which makes this card tricky to grab for the right price. Barrasso notched 369 wins in his impressive NHL career and was awarded a card in this set back in 2015-16 Upper Deckl Series 1. This card features a nice cut of wood from one of his old Heaton (I presume) goalie sticks.
Another sweet add to my set! This is my 16th card from the 300th Win Club set to date and I'm always looking to add more from my want list!
Happy collecting, everyone!
Late this afternoon I was excited to see another yellow bubble mailer sitting in the mailbox today, as I knew exactly what was inside before I even opened it. Don't you love mail days like those?
These cards might not look like much, but it completes my 2018-19 Upper Deck Synergy Last Line Of Defence green parallel insert set, limited to 199 copies. I'm not primarily a set collector, so making the decision to chase a particular set of cards is a rare thing for me. While I've completed some low-end goalie sets in the past, this is the first paralleled set of goalie cards I've completed so far, which is a new collecting 'milestone' for me. Though this isn't a complete master set for this subset (there are also Midnight Parallels #/25), I am still stoked to put this set to bed.
I received these two cards from a fellow Hobby Insider forum member, as he broke very large amounts of 18-19 Synergy and gifted these to me free of charge in order for me two finally finish this green parallel set. Love that!
Until next time,
Added the Frederik Andersen to my Last Line Of Defence Green Parallel set tonight. Can't wait to add the final 2 (Jones & Rinne) to complete this small 15-card parallel set!
I received this in a trade with a fellow SportsCardForum member, Paul. Great guy and a very easy member to deal with. I was able to help with out with his & his daughter's collection with some sweet Price & Fleury cards. I'm glad they liked them!
Collectors helping other collectors - That's what it's all about at the end of the day.
So this week I added the Carey Price and Marc-Andre Fleury to my ongoing 2018-19 Upper Deck Syngery Last Line Of Defence Green Parallel #/199 set. 2 steps closer! Can't wait to finally finish this set off. The Price & Fleury were going to be the toughest to add from this set, so I'm glad to have finally knocked them off the wantlist.
I currently need the following 3 cards to complete this small 15-card set parallel'd set:
#LD-4 Frederik Andersen /199
#LD-6 Martin Jones /199
#LD-7 Pekka Rinne /199
Today I added this 2015-16 Upper Deck 300 Win Club Henrik "The King" Lundqvist to the collection today. This brings me up to 15 cards in the 300 Win Club Jersey/Relic set so far in the (current) 24-card 300 Win Club set I am chasing. Felt great to finally add the Lundqvist! I missed out on a few Cam Ward's not too long ago, so here's hoping I can snag a copy of that one sooner rather than later.
Wow, a lot of blog posts lately. Sweet, right? It means that a lot of cards have been making their way into my collection as of late. No complaints here!
Today's mailday includes another 300 Win Club additition for my ongoing set. This Luongo is from 13-14 Upper Deck Series 1 and is a Group A hit. I was lucky enough to pick this up from another member on Hobby Insider who reached out to me after seeing my 300 Win Club thread. Thanks, pal!
This is my 14th addition to my set so far. Hoping to add more soon! If any of you readers have any of these 300 Win Club cards....yeah... you know where to reach me on here :)
Finally making some progress on my 18-19 UD Synergy Last Line of Defence set!
Added the Green parallels of Hellebuyck, Bobrovsky, Vasilevskiy and Dubnyk today. I only need 6 more Green parallels #/199 to complete this little set! I have all the regular versions already and will not be going after the Purple parallels #/25. So let me know if you have any of these Last Line of Defence Green paralles! Thanks!
