One Card Post - A Semi-star Sabre

What:  2014-15 Fleer Showcase - Flair Showcase (Blue Ice Parallel #'d /99)
Where: COMC
How Much?:  $4.49

Why?:  I picked this one up just about three years back now on COMC, and it's only finally getting a moment on the blog now.  At the time, I was intrigued by Reinhart given that he was a high draft pick (2nd overall) and wondered what kind of player he may develop into.  For less than $5 this seemed like an interesting pick-up, especially since it was a relatively rare parallel with just 99 copies out there, and because it harkened back to the '90s with its design.

Well, after a couple of solid if unspectacular seasons, Reinhart is really coming into his own here in 2018-19, thanks in large part to getting significant ice time with stars Jack Eichel and Jeff Skinner.  After posting a career high 50 points last year, he seems poised to smash that this season as he's already recorded 45 points in just 51 games played.

I truly hope the Sabres can make the NHL playoffs this season.  Their fan base has certainly been patient enough, and I'd love to see some different teams in the mix this post-season.  If they do make it, they'll need significant contributions from Sam Reinhart in order to advance very far...
