I've been collecting cards for a few years now. My favorite cards have to be my osgood card with a piece of his 1998 goalie pad, my signed franzen rookie card, and my Z and dats double jersey card.

was a pretty big collector back when I was a kid, but just recently went through the old albums the other day and I realized I have an entire 2 binders (roughly about 50 sleeves in each binder) dedicated to Red Wings cards only...forgot I had some nice Fedorov, Yzerman, Osgood, and Lidstrom cards to boot

Its sad the card collection business is dying, back in the 80's and 90's it was a booming business. Now you have brand new inserts worth more than some really old cards. I remember I bought a pack of cards and got a Peyton Manning insert worth $150.00 back in 2000. I have a very large collection that is sittin around collecting dust . I hope one day the card collection business will become what it once was.


In a way card collecting is better now. Sure there were more people collecting back then. But now there are less cards that aren't over produced making them more unique. I hope it doesn't turn into the 80's/90's again when there were just way to many sets and now all of them are worth nothing. And with the Autos, jersey, fight straps, pieces of sticks and pads and pucks all embedded in cards now it just is a whole lot more exciting.

as for binders, a couple months ago i bought a pack of 100 9 pocket sleeves and a new binder. I went through all my non team set cards, and i compiled a pretty solid 70 page binder of strictly wings. it was all cards from like 1986 to 2010, and i organized it first by player alphabetically, and then the year of the card. kinda OCD s***, but definitely cool to flip through.

i didnt wanna focus multiple pages per player unless they had lengthy careers with the wings, in which case a few choice players got multi pages of cards spanning their time with the wings.

For the first few pages of my Wings binder,I arranged them by their success with the Wings.Their contribution.So the 1st page is Yzerman,Shanahan,Sawchuk,Lidstrom,Lindsay,etc.I have one binder that is strictly present day NHLers.The front of the binder is the big superstars like Ovechkin and Brodeur.As I go farther into the binder,I eventually group all the tough guys together followed by the stay at home defensemen and grinders.Pretty OCD as well.Then I have a Legends (Non-Wings) binder where I randomly put all my Gretzky,Messier,Bobby Orr,Fuhr,etc. Cards in.All the other binders are just randomly put together with no real patterns.

For a few years I used to be really into hockey card collecting, I managed to gather up a boat load of rookies from players like Messier, Bourque, Gretzky, Bossy, Roy, Yzerman, Sittler, Chelios, Marcel Dionne (Although the card is very poor centering wise) and the list goes on and on. I also have some really old cards of Alex Delvecchio from about 1952, Jean Beliveau and Henri Richard from about 1955 and a pile of jersey and autos of many players, one of which is a Zetterberg auto rookie. I also bought a pack of cards many years ago for 100 bucks, managed to pull out a Patrick Roy patch that I got an offer of $400 for. I know its Roy... ugh, but he has some hardcore collectors which makes this card very valuable.

I could snap a few pictures if anyone is interested.

I have some rare ones of players I hate (Roy,Forsberg,etc.) and I keep them,though its hard.I bought an old tin of cards from like 2005 or 2006 and,I was wondering if anyone remembers Luc Bourdon?A couple years back,he got in a fatal motorcycle accident in Canada.He had a bright career ahead of him (RIP Luc).Anyways in this old tin I got a Luc Bourdon rookie card and I have no idea how much its worth?Anyone have an idea?

I've got the entire 1990-1991 UD series which includes:

Jagr RC
Rob Blake RC
Modano RC
Brind'Amour RC

And NHL Award cards with the winner from that year:

Art Ross-Wayne Gretzky
Hart-Mark Messier
Norris-Bourque
Vezina-Roy
Lady Byng-Brett Hull
Calder-Makarov
Jennings-Moog
Conn Smythe-Ranford
Selke-Rick Meagher

I haven't looked up how much any of these are worth yet.Anyone have an idea?

I collected a few when I was a kid and then in my early 30's, I started collecting again. I am usually in the minority at the local card shop or on trade night being a woman...(and yes, I have encountered a ton of guys who try to "convince me" to trade my graded Yzerman RC for some 8 dollar jersey card!) but for the most part, people are great and understand that being a woman in the hobby doesnt mean I don't know what I am doing.

I collect Yzerman, Zetterberg and Filppula cards with Zetty being my main quest. My Zetty collection is over 200 cards, aproximately 15 RCS, 25 Autos and 40 Patch or jersey (or skate/stick) memoribila cards. I had my son in january so all the card money is now pablum and toy money so I havent ripped any wax this year, although I have picked up a few cards on ebay. Val has been easier to collect because he isnt a huge star so I have every card, with the exception of only 8 of Fil's cards that have been made. I love the hobby and it will be interesting to see what Panini produces this year with their debut!

I would love to trade with other LGW members so feel free to email me. I dont have photobucket at present but certainly have lots of traders!

these are my most recent ebay pick ups, i havent bought anything new in the last few months though.

i picked up that jimmy howard griffins auto for a ridiculously low price, like $3.00 including shipping. i got it back in november before he broke out into full time fury, so im guessing i probably wouldnt be able to pick it up for as low as i did then ;]. its not an NHL card though so i wouldnt consider it a rookie, its from a 2007 AHL set.

and the ciccarelli jersey cards were awesome deals aswell. i got the north stars one for 2 or 3 dollars and the capitals one for around 5 bucks, # 33/99

I have the worst hockey card collecting story ever. Me and friend collected cards back when we were young about 1978-1979ish and only for one year. We were insane and bought them at every opportunity. We would not only buy packs, but rather entire boxes. I think we kept buying because we thought we didnt have the team picture card for the four expansion teams from the WHA. Only later did we realize the four teams were on the same card with just their logos and not the team picture itself, but because of this misunderstanding we had collected the entire league set of cards at least 14 times over. You might have heard of a player who was a rookie that year by the name of Wayne Gretzky. So at one time I had at least 14 Gretzky rookies and you might by now know where this story is heading.

Fast forward about 8 years or so 1987ish. I knew in my head the Gretzky cards were of some value even at that point. Never bothered to value them in a guide or anything so im not sure what I had in value even at that point. I knew a kid in high school who was a big hockey fan at that time and specifically a fan of Gretz so I gave him a few (probably 2 or 3 of the cards). I gave a couple more to a another friend and one each to 2 nephews totalling about 6 cards given away. The story only gets better. I separated the Gretzky cards out from the main gigantic box of cards that I had amassed (I had kept all of the cards as my friend who i collected them with had no interest after that first year). I kept the remaining Gretzky rooks in my bedroom closet on shelf by themselves. They remained there until my mom decided to clean my closet out a couple of years later as I had moved into a bigger room in the house. She had thought that they were just some odd cards that were of no importance so in the garbage they went. It wasn't until a few years later that I realized that they had been tossed and what they might have been worth. I had got the itch to collect again when Federov was a rookie and the card business exploded around that same time. I finally picked up a Beckett guide and saw the Gretz rooks going for like 300 to 500 at the time in 1991. Granted, none of the cards were mint so it would not have been a huge lump of cash but it might have bought me good used car at that time.

A slight silver lining to the story. Because I had given 2 to another friend as stated above, he was kind enough to give one back a few years later.

Don't want to say for sure, but I do know a few years ago they were saying basically anything from the 90s in sports cards (the entire period I collected) was incredibly devalued just because there were so many cards printed of every set, while now the good cards are all in limited sets.
Q: Of all the individual trophies you have not won, which one would you most like to win?

Yeah that's what people have been saying and I've noticed that in the values of the cards from the '90s that I have looked up.Wicked overproduction I guess.The Modano RC is worth a few bucks right now,and you figure its value will go up once he retires and is inducted into the HHOF.Same with Sakic's cards.Once he gets inducted,the value of his cards will increase.
