While parallels can sometimes become a daunting thought, particularly as a player collector, I always enjoy picking up a new one, especially considering a couple of the guys I collect are affordable options in this great hobby of ours. One of my favorite sets hails from 2005-2006 Upper Deck Beehive. It's a parallel-laden set, and one I'm nearing completion on.
The above Ryan Getzlaf Yellow Beehive RC awesomeness brings me one step closer to the finish line, and it was had a long, long time ago for under a five spot. While I seemingly stumble upon new parallels of the card from time to time, I know I still need the blue parallel, and I think the blue alone.
Yellow joins red....
....and beige. The yellow is easily my favorite of the bunch.
