Mail Day! 2006-07 Artifacts Bronze /25 Set Project Progress Report
So far in 2013 I’ve been making some pretty decent progress on a number of my major collecting projects, particularly my 2008-09 Upper Deck Masterpieces Master Set project.
One project that hasn’t seen any cards removed from the want list prior to today is my 2006-07 Upper Deck Artifacts Bronze Parallel /25 set.
In today’s post, however, I’m able to cross a pair of cards off that have arrived over the last 10 days or so.
The first to arrive was a Henrik Lundqvist Stars subset card:
I picked this one up for a measly $5.95 including shipping, which to me is an absolute bargain for a goalie who has become a perennial Vezina Trophy contender.
Second on the docket is a Bill Thomas card from the Rookies subset:
It came with a price tag of $5.99 including shipping, which is a price I’m comfortable paying for a common from this set.
When I did a quick search about his career I was surprised to learn that Thomas has actually played more than 80 games in the NHL since the 2005-06 season, including as recently as last year when he played 7 games for Florida, notching a total of 16 goals and 12 assists.
I had been expecting to read up on a guy who had a cup of coffee in the NHL and then faded into European league obscurity as so many players featured on NHL rookie cards do these days.
With that said, knowing that I got the Lundqvist for basically the same price as I feel comfortable paying for a common player, it only serves to increase my feeling that I got a bargain basement price on the first of these two pickups.
With these two cards knocked off the list I am now up to a total of 91 cards acquired for this project, leaving me with 139 still left to track down. A daunting task to be sure, but what good is a major collecting project without some significant level of challenge involved?
Please feel free to take a look at my want list and let me know if you have something that I need for this project or any of the others that I’m currently working on. Post a comment, connect on Facebook and Twitter, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch and let me know what you’ve got and what you might be looking for yourself.
Until next time, all the best in your collecting pursuits!
