On Card Autos - A Couple of Great Bruins

Here's something quick to tide you over until this evening's Super Bowl festivities. A few months back I showed off a Mike Liut auto from the Parkhurst Champions hockey set. I liked the card so much I decided to pick up a couple Boston Bruins autos as well...

First we have two-time First Team All-Star Ken Hodge. Ken is a well-known figure in the Boston area as he was a member of both early '70s Bruins Stanley Cup championship teams. This is my only Hodge auto, and what a cool signature. That is one wild H. I wasn't really searching this card out specifically, but I was able to win this one for $6.50. This was an impulse buy because it was from the same seller that I purchased the next card from so I was able to combine shipping costs.


Here's the card that I was searching for as soon as I saw it on the checklist, Milt Schmidt. My Schmidt collection is really picking up steam as of late, and this is my second on card auto of the Hall of Fame great. I think I like the 2006 Parkhurst auto better, but I really wanted to track down this one as well, and was extremely happy to snag it for just $8.50. It really is insane how cheap Milt's stuff goes for.

So there you have it, two pretty great Boston Bruins autos for $17.30 shipped. This was a good reminder of how much more efficient I can be with my card money if I stay away from packs...

What a great signature on that Hodge card. I am really liking those Champions cards, especially the signed cards. That set sort of flew under the radar a bit, didn't they?

And of course, Schmidt cards are criminally underpriced/undervalued.
