Trade With Sportscards From The Dollar Store: Puig RC, Etem Young Guns, Getzy.

I completed my second trade with Douglas from Sportscards From The Dollar Store. Doug has helped add some excellent hockey cards to my collection, and this trade was no different, although it wasn't just limited to hockey.

Another Yasiel Puig rookie for my modest #ManBearPuig PC. It's numbered 216/399, and I quite like the design from Panini.

Emerson Etem Young Guns! I've been after this card since it was released into the wild, as I'm a huge Emerson fan and was fortunate to be in attendance at the draft when he fell to the Ducks at the end of the first round. I see big things in his future, and this card features a great action shot on what is a great design for the 2013-2014 Young Guns class.

A sweet Paul Kariya relic with a Mighty Ducks' sweater swatch is next. Paul is pictured as a member of the Colorado Avalanche, and while I understand why that's so I do wish In The Game had switched the positioning of the photos to better highlight Paul's tenure in Anaheim, as he's thought of as a member of the Ducks.

I inquired as to the availability of the above Johnathan Franklin relic, what with The Mayor being one of the better football players to ever grace the field for the Bruins. It will go nicely with the pair of autos I have of the former UCLA tailback.

And finally, some random Ducks and a sweet Kevin Love card featuring the elite stretch four in his UCLA garb. The Nick Bonino and Teemu Selanne cards are all kinds of cool, while the Getzs are new additions to my modest base card portfolio of the Ducks' Captain. The Bobby Ryan and Jonas Hiller Black Diamond cards really pop, and the Cam Fowler is some sort of blue pulsar parallel.

That Getzy card with the red smoke surrounding him is card of the year material.

Thanks for another sweet trade Douglas!

  1. The Fowler was the Wal-Mart parallel, falling at 3 to a hangar pack.

    The Puig was part of a redemption pack I picked up at the Toronto Expo. I don't know if that was the only source for the card, though.
