2015 Leaf Best of Hockey Case Break - Part Two

Continuing on with the final four hits from my 2015 Leaf Best of Hockey case break, we start with some vintage goodness.

Unfortunately, it wasn't vintage greatness.

From 1960-61 Parkhurst comes this PSA Graded 7 card of Hall of Famer Alex Delvecchio. Although a great player in his day, this card is from about 600 games into his career. His rookie was much earlier... 1951-52 Parkhurst. It's a nice grade on a vintage card but this card will be hitting eBay as it doesn't really fit into my collection.

From 2007-08 Upper Deck Fleer Ultra comes this BGS Graded 9.5 short-print Ice Medallion rookie card of Jonathan Toews numbered to /100. Captain Serious is one of the best in the game and this card is almost perfect. Although I really like the card, I think another collector would appreciate it much more than I would... so it will be put up for auction as well.

From 2012-13 Panini Crown Royale comes this Silhouette Materials Signature card of Mario Lemieux. One of the greatest to play the game, the scan doesn't do the card justice. It's never a bad day when I add another Lemieux hard-signed autograph to my personal collection.

And the final hit.

The big hit.

And the hit that was perfect for me to get...

From 1986-87 O-Pee-Chee comes this PSA Graded 9 rookie card of Patrick Roy. My favourite player on my favourite team as I grew up, this is one heck of a pull. I already have two Patrick Roy rookie cards in my collection... one that my mother bought for me as a birthday present in 1991.... and one that I pulled from an unopened pack a few years ago at the Sports Card Expo in Toronto. This card, my first graded Patrick Roy rookie card, will stay with me forever!  :)
