All of this 1990 Topps sorting and scanning has gotten me pretty sidetracked. Although I've continued watching all the Bruins games (painful at times) I've slacked off on posting a new Krejci card every time he registers a goal. Since the Olympic break, and even more so since Marc Savard went down, David Krejci has really stepped up his play. In fact, he's gotten back to the level that he was at last year when he had such a spectacular sophomore season. Since I posted last, Krejci has registered three more goals. I just happened to have three parallel cards I haven't shown yet:
First up is the 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee gold parallel. You can see the base card here. It doesn't show well in the scan, but the gold parallel consists of a slightly sturdier, foil type card stock that gives them a "gold" tinge. I bought two hobby boxes of this stuff last season and I want to say these were seeded at maybe 6 per box or so. Just the sort of thing I hate as a set collector.
Next we have a parallel of a parallel, a 2009-10 O-Pee-Chee Retro Rainbow card. This is a parallel of the regular Retro parallel, which you can see here. The Retro Rainbow cards are on glossy card stock with a rainbow foil, and are numbered to 100.
Finally, we have a 2009-10 Fleer Ultra Ice Medallion parallel. These mirror the base set with the exception of the "ice colored" left border. They are numbered to 100 as well.
The Bruins have won 3 of 5, but suffered a tough home loss last night to Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres. Huge game tonight in New Jersey against the Devils. The Bruins are desperately clinging to the 8th playoff spot in the East, and need the two points badly, but it's not going to be an easy win...
