The amount of parallels that exist today make player collecting a chore far too often. However, if the player you collect is relatively affordable to chase - as is the case with Ryan Getzlaf - it can be a fun experience. I recently came across a card of The Captain I needed, and it happened to be numbered 05/15.
As it's just a simple sweater swatch with gold tinting, it wasn't a priority to pick up. However, with the price so low that I couldn't resist at least trying, I decided to give it a shot. The bid held and it's the newest addition to my Captain Getz PC.
