Taking a page from the book of CardBoarded I decided to take a snapshot of my progress:
February 29, 2012
March 12, 2012
Just to clarify a few cards in the above photo; the third Upper Deck card is an Exclusive #d/100 and the two 2011-12 O-Pee-Chee cards near the bottom right are the Rainbow and Black Rainbow parallels - I'm still looking for the regular base card in the set to complete that rainbow. Although I'd like to feature the majority of the new additions in this blog post, it's way too early in the morning to go on a scanning spree so I figured I would just post my 'biggest' card in the project thus far.
2011-12 Panini Crown Royale
Royal Lineage #d 28/50
Logan Couture, Ryane Clowe and Joe Thornton
Two color swatches from the starting three players of the Sharks. In my opinion Clowe has the nicest piece on this card, I'm guessing that it's a cut from the home jersey collar. There's also a one color swatch version and a Prime Patches version of this card unnumbered and #d to /25 accordingly - snatched myself one of each of those as well, just waiting for them to arrive.
The 2011-12 Panini Certified jersey and auto redemption card should be nice as well, if it ever arrives! It's my second time applying for a redemption card; the previous account would be the 2011-12 Upper Deck Artifacts card that I applied for over the telephone many moons ago, on the first day of the Artifacts release to be exact. Still haven't heard a peep from them or received my card. I really hope that this redemption actually turns into something, until then I'll be impatiently waiting near the mailbox.
