Gimmicky 1/1s Are Still 1/1s

I came across an interesting 1/1 of Ryan Getzlaf at the end of 2012. I didn't expect to win but as so often happens the high bid when I saw the card was too low for my liking. I put in a small bid and it ended up holding up as the card became the newest addition to my Captain Getz Collection.


My fourth Getzlaf 1/1 is a gimmicky Spring Expo 2012 1/1 that was had for $6.59 delivered. The card hails from '11-'12 ITG Captain C and was originally one of 90 copies of the Silver parallel prior to its Expo stamping. It marks my first Expo 1/1 of the Ducks' centerman.

Are there not many Getzlaf collectors out there? You seem to be getting an uncomfortable amount of steals of them.

Or maybe his market just plummeted, like Ricky Romero's, with a less-than-stellar last season.

Of course, Romero pretty much puked up 2012, Less-than-stellar would have been a compliment.

PS I have a stack of cards looking to head to sunny California...

There are actually a surprising amount of Getz collectors.

I just troll eBay too often haha.

And I know! I'm still looking to see what I have that might entice you.
