I've always been a fan of re-packaged products so I thought I'd take a chance on a 4-box case of 2015 Leaf Best of Hockey. The product contains one slabbed buy-back card as well as one In The Game Best Of Hockey 1/1 foil-stamped buy-back card.
In this post, I'll reveal the 4 ITG foil-stamped buy-back cards... and save the bigger hits for the next blog post.
Ready, set, go!
Originally from 2006-07 ITG International Ice comes this dual jersey Teammates card of Mario Lemieux and Martin Brodeur. When first released, this card was the silver version and numbered to seventy but now it features the 1/1 Best of Hockey foil stamp. Not a bad start!
Originally from 2009-10 ITG 1972 The Year In Hockey comes this nice Jersey Gold card of Russian Boris Mikhailov. A long-time captain of the Soviet National team, Mikhailov won Olympic gold medals in 1972 and 1976.
Originally from 2009-10 ITG Between the Pipes is this Game-Used Emblem Gold card of Glenn Hall. Nicknamed 'Mr. Goalie', the card features an emblem from Hall's St. Louis Blues jersey. He was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1975.
And last, but definitely not least, is my favourite card of the four.
Originally from 2009-10 ITG Between the Pipes comes this Pad Save Gold card of Patrick Roy. As shown on the back of this card, it was a 1/1 to begin with and now features a 1/1 Best of Hockey stamp on the front. The thick piece from Roy's Colorado Avalanche goalie pad is bursting out of the card. A picture just cannot do it justice.
The first three will be placed on eBay. The Pad Save card will find a home in my personal Patrick Roy collection.
Next time... the four slabbed buy-back cards!
