One Card Post - The Golden Jet

What:  2015-16 Upper Deck #C243 - Bobby Hull Canvas
Where:  eBay
How Much?:  $8.00 (best offer)

Why?
:  I've got a giant project at work starting this afternoon that's going to go well into the wee hours of Saturday morning at best, most of the weekend at worst.  On top of that we're apparently getting one last snowstorm on Sunday, so all I've got time for today is a quick one card post.

If you stop by here with any kind of frequency then you know I'm a huge fan of the Canvas inserts that have been a part of Upper Deck's flagship hockey release for five years now.  My absolute favorites are the short-printed retired legends, but they frequently sell for more than I'm willing to pay (try finding a Gretzky or Orr from the 2011-12 set). 

I was pumped when an eBay seller accepted my $8 offer for this Bobby Hull from this year's set.  What a great image of Bobby with one hand on the stick controlling the puck, and the other about to fend off an opposing player.  The shadows of both guys on the boards behind them really puts it over the top.

My apologies to Chris, Jared and Jeff that it's taking me so long to get your trade packages posted, after this weekend I should hopefully be able to come up for some air and catch up!

Don't apologize. I am the slowest blogger out here. Hope some fit your collection.

Great card! Kaner is doing his best Golden Jet imitation. Goal 39 tonight. We really need a win.

Best part? Dig those clean, white, ad free boards in the background.
