One Card Post - Jagr Returns!
How Much?: $13.00 (plus shipping)
Why?: The prayers of thousands of hockey fans across the globe, including myself, were answered about a week ago when the Calgary Flames signed 45-year-old Jaromir Jagr to a one year deal! Jagr needed a few days to get up to speed, and understandably so, but finally debuted last night for the Flames. I'm extremely grateful as a fan that I'll get to enjoy one last season of watching Jaromir, who began his NHL career all the way back when I was a kid fan in 1990.
Seemed like the perfect opportunity to post the latest acquisition for my relatively small collection of Jagr cards. As I mentioned before, I'm trying at this point to get a few mid-range cards, and this one certainly classifies as the higher end of mid-range in my opinion. These mid-'90s Finest hockey refractors are tough, so I had to pony up and shell out $13 to land the Jagr, after probably 2-3 years of casually looking.
