Great Golden Getzlafs.

I recently picked up a couple of short-printed gold parallels of Ryan Getzlaf. The pair combined ran me less than half a blaster. First up, a gold parallel /25 from 2012-2013 Upper Deck Artifacts.

Numbered 01/25 - oh snap, an eBay 1/1 - it's a welcome addition to my collection of The Captain. I always love cardboard that features my favorite player donning the Captain's C, and a photo of Getzlaf in a visor is an added and cool bonus.

The second /25 gold parallel I acquired hails from 2010-2011 Panini Certified and is the awesomely awesome Mirror Gold version, numbered 22/25. Here we find Getzy surveying the ice sans visor and wearing the Alternate Captain's A.


  1. I really enjoy 12-13 Artifacts (could have went without the retired players) and really would love to add some colored parallels. I only pulled one, a Jagr, and flipped it on ebay pretty quickly.

  2. there's nothing quite like a good colored parallel
