Joe Sakic card #312 1998-99 Topps Gold Label Class 1 #65

  • If there is one set I'd love to see come back for hockey, it's this one.  Love the dual photo on the front, the cards aren't flimsy and look great when scanned.  
  • Need quite a few of the different classes and colors for Joe.  Only have the Class 1 base from this set.  Finding the red parallels are difficult, and expensive.
  • A black Class 1 card is on auction right now for just under $11 on ebay, not bad at all.  There's a class 2 base on COMC for $5.42 and a class 3 base for $14.04.  For as little as you see them up for sale, these aren't bad prices.

Larry Fitzgerald card #15 2005 Donruss Elite Elite Teams #ET-1

  • Anything featuring Fitzgerald and a big shot of the Cardinals logo (especially with the dark red) will be a big weakness of mine.  
  • Serial #'d 150/1000.  I've had quite a lot of luck picking up serial #'d cards of Larry for less than a buck, many of them around 50 cents.
  • Everyone talks about Fitz being a lock for the HOF, but how about Anquan Boldin?  100+ catches 2x, 80+ catches in 5 other seasons.  13,779 career yards, Super Bowl ring with the Ravens in 2012.  My lasting impression of Anquan will be that he was a tough WR to defend against, very physical.

Larry Fitzgerald card #14: 2004 Upper Deck Rookie Premiere #5

  • Good to see that all those photos at the rookie shoot didn't go to waste; 6 photos on the front of the card!!
  • Someone forgot to tell Larry that he could keep his eyes open on this shot.   No need to prepare to get hit by a defender here.
  • 29 copies of this card currently on COMC.  Cheapest card is $3.50, most expensive is $5.25.  This tells me one thing; I'm pretty sure that Wes sent me this card.  Thanks Wes!

Larry Fitzgerald card #13 2004 Upper Deck Rookie Prospects #RP-LF

  • Been a while since I wrote a post on here, and I've been on a bit of a Fitzgerald binge lately, so why not get started writing again with a Fitz card?
  • Bio on the back:  Formed a trio with Anquan Boldin and Bryant Johnson in his rookie season to give the Cardinals a solid group of WR's.  
  • I'll be approaching 250 cards of Fitz when my next COMC order comes in.   Yes, I am working on quite a few sets as well but I figure I'm going to try and get as many of Fitzgerald's cards on the cheap before he retires then hits the HOF.
