Panini Dominion Brass Bonanza - The End!!!

I've added quite a few new cards to the collection lately that I'm anxious to show off, and have a couple of other posts in the works that I've been meaning to get to as well, including the remainder of my Top 20 Under $25 countdown. Before I get to those though, it makes sense to close out the Dominion Brass Bonanza posts. Here's the tenth and final card in the set:

#1 - Bobby Hull (#'d/24)

I guess this may have been an obvious choice to some as the final card in the set (in fact 1967ers correctly guessed in the comments a few posts back that Hull was included). While Bobby played only 9 games with the Whalers (the final 9 of his career), his is one of a very select group of former Whalers in the Hall of Fame (along with Gordie Howe, Dave Keon, Paul Coffey, Ron Francis and Mark Howe).

610 career goals in the NHL, and another 303 in the WHA, yet the elder Hall-of-Fame Hull scored just 2 while wearing a Hartford sweater. A cool card nonetheless, and the signature itself is my favorite out of all ten cards in the set. I knew this one would be the toughest to track down at just 24 copies, but I am extremely pleased to have Bobby represented in my autograph collection.


So that's a wrap for the Panini Dominion Brass Bonanza auto set. Here are all 10 cards in order for your viewing pleasure:


This set is definitely a cornerstone of my Hartford Whalers collection. I'll enjoy these for years to come, and in total the entire set cost me less than I would have paid for a single box of Dominion. I hope you enjoyed the cards, I'll be moving forward with some non-Whalers posts later this weekend...

Nice Hull! Congrats. Bobby sure has been enjoying his return to the Blackhawks family.

Very cool indeed! And I'm glad it wasn't Terry Yake.
