One Card Post - Little Lidstrom
Where: Part of lot won on eBay
How Much?: Worked out to about $.25 per card
Why?: Something fun, and a little different, that you don't see on a card every day. A perfect example of why I love the Canvas inserts. If cards like this started cropping up in every set I'd get sick of them fast, but a one-off is kind of unique. Like the Patrick Marleau I showed a few weeks back, which was from the same lot, I nearly pulled the trigger on this one many times on COMC over the past year. Glad I waited it out.
Other: This is serving as a filler post while I get around to scanning in all of the awesome cards I've received recently from Mark Hoyle, reader Jason, and Dave H of Wax Stain Rookie. I'm buried in new cardboard that was generously sent to me, not a bad problem to have.
