One Card Post - A Whalers Buyback
How Much?: $2.99 (plus 75 cents shipping)
Why?: Here's my latest Upper Deck buyback, a '90-91 that was stamped and included in 2010-11 Upper Deck (French) to commemorate the brand's 20th anniversary. You might think I'm somewhat crazy for paying close to $4 for a Brad Shaw card, but these aren't exactly the easiest cards to find for a team collector. I believe they fell at 1 or 2 per box.
One of my most painful eBay losses was getting out-bid on a Ron Francis buyback from this set at the very last minute a couple of years ago. I've never seen another one since, but at least I've got Brad Shaw for now...
