I was cleaning my garage last weekend and decided to go though a box of some of my old stuff my dad dropped of about a month ago. 

 

This is had been in storage in his attic since I moved out in 1999.

It was a collection of my Yzerman cards I thought I had lost. I do have a rookie but that is on a plaque hanging in my basement.

And I also found this guy, back when I collected cards I had no clue he would turn out to be the perfect human.

My Wife asked if they were worth anything, I said not nearly close enough to even consider.

 

I thought I would share.

Awesome stuff.  Can't believe you managed to collect that many Yzerman cards.  I found all of my old NHL cards from back in the day about a year ago and it's funny seeing rookie cards for guys who ended up being stars in the league.

Wow.  I've never been into cards or collecting, but that's amazing.

 

You're lucky they didn't get thrown out.  My grandma threw out all of my dad's "toys" when he went to college.  All of his baseball cards from the 1950's, including the entire '55 Yankees. 

 

I have no idea if modern hockey cards are valuable, but the sentimental value alone makes those priceless.

For those that don't know the cards they have been making the last 5 ish years have chunks of actual game worn jerseys in them. They are actually worth more than older cards of recent retiring players who's rookie cards were popular in the mass produced 90s. I guess they are much more rare now with bits of jerseys in them?

As a collector of jerseys, I weep when I see a perfectly good jersey cut up into tiny squares for those trading cards.

I still have tub's of unopened hockey cards from the 90s... I really should get to opening them someday. Oh well, they're at my parents anyways. Awesome collection you got there man and even better than you found them after originally thinking they were gone forever! Maybe we should open a hockey card thread to showcase different collections. I'm sure some of you guys here got some outstanding ones. 

 

As for the new cards with the sweaters in them. They're actually pretty cool but I was stunned when I saw my first one the other month.

I have a 02/03 Pacific Kovalchuk card with a piece of stick blade, jersey and autograph (1 per case). It's one of my favorite non-Wings cards. They've been doing memorabilia cards for over 10 years now. One that I really liked was the Be A Player Ultimate Memorabilia cards. They were $100 per pack (1 Beckett Graded card), which is insane, but I got 3 cool ones: Plante/Roy game worn jersey pieces, Michel Goulet (jersey, auto), and Guy Lapointe (jersey). I had to step away from collecting when it got waaaay too expensive heh.

Didn't know where I should put this so I'm putting it here.

 

Pretty sure I just found...Doc Emrick at the Tigers game.  Looked like they had him on camera in Tigers gear.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."
