Recently found a Naslund rookie card.

Just getting back into Hockey Cards for the fall. I'm an exclusive Black Diamond collector and have complete sets for the last 2 years.

I collect Kesler, Hodgson, Subban mostly.

The key to actually making money with cards is patience. I believe Upper Deck Black Diamond is the real honey hole. I know its a high end intermediate card, but their popularity is off the charts.

Hodgson is one of the key Rookies in next years set (December 2011) and I cannot wait.

I have 3 Subban quad diamond rookies, 3 Kesler young gun rookies, and 2 of #/25 Hodgson ITG heroes and prospects with his auto and jersey swatch.

I'm not trying to come off as a douche, but spur some talk about the Black Diamond series. I could potentially help people fill sets if there are people trying to fill them.

Hockey Cards have been my passion since I was a paperboy 18 years ago.... the itch never left :)

Tell me more about the Black Diamond Series. I don't know anything about it.

Is it worth 90 bucks per box?

Those Ultimates are what? 100 per pack? Damn >.<. Though, really nice hits.

A cody hodgson /24 for only 80 bucks on ebay.

http://www.ebay.ca/i...3#ht_500wt_1287

if only i wasn't so much of a cheap bastard.

Edit:

Well i guess it looks like garbage compared to this one:

lol, cody's prices have shot through the roof lately... man I wonder how much I could get for my collection, not like I'm going to sell it though. one of them is numbered out of 19 (patch and sig)

edit: lol, that 2nd one is one of the ones I have, except it's not the parallel version, meaning mine is even more expensive... NICE.

edit 2: oh, and no, i have not picked up anything lately, the 2011/12 cards havent really come out yet, though I'm contemplating a canada vs the world hobby box. only 9 cards but some damn nice hits in there.

nioce.

did you buy it as a single? or get it in a pack?

I think Hodgson's prices are still a bit low for a top prospect. It'll probably go up, as long as Hodgson puts up 30-40 points and show signs of potential.

higher end stuff results in a better investment of your money, but it hurts more to get those because you spend more but get less coming back (in hard goods, not total value).

I dunno. When i get cards, i think of the fun factor of opening a pack and getting nostalgia from a decent pull. Its hard to think about cards as "investment" because, at the end of the day, I find myself keeping it all to myself and never think about selling it. I'm think of buying it, just because i have money to burn at the moment.

It's like why i don't bother to buy jerseys, btw - ebay is having a sale, with 60 dollar jerseys but the canuck ones are all gone. I don't plan on doing anything with it.




I bought a few of these for fun: http://www.ebay.ca/i...#ht_1082wt_1270

half of it came today, best thing was a frozen artifact jersey rick nash. everything else, meh, but its expected. oh well, only a dollar per pack.


Anyways. Ultimate hockey? It's like 100-150 per pack? You pull any of those before? if so, how'd that go?

HI there I didn't know where to ask this so I figured I'd ask here. I have a jersey I'm selling for my Mom. It's a 2011 official signed (by the entire team) jersey. It was the one in the raffle for the children's hospital. I am trying to figure out a price for her and a the best venue to sell it. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Haha, those Hodgson ITG cards on ebay were mine... I was seeing if anyone would bite. Now that I think about it I would've been crushed if they sold!!

I really like Black Diamond cards for a few reasons:

They are foil covered and easily damaged. Thats a good thing because some of these cards will get de-valued just by kids opening them, thus making the well kept ones more valuable. Ive damaged these cards slipping them into plastic sleeves! Lol why is that good?

Second is the appeal of collecting the 1-222 (or whatever) complete set.

In the pursuit of this, I usually buy 6 boxes ($85) tops then fill in the ones I don't pull with some savvy ebaying.

TIP for ebayers: The best deals can come from misspelling the players name or an other blunder.

Example, one of my Hodgson ITG cards which I'd say is $100 easy right now let alone the future was found by me actually misspelling Hodgson into HOGDSON. I searched the incorrect name and only one card came up.. got it for $9.99.

Again if anyone is into collecting the black diamond sets, I can certainly help... I've many 2,3,4 Diamond cards from 2008-09 to 2010-11.

Oh I forgot. My favorite set I have is the 1997-98 Black Diamond Triple GOLD set. with Luongo, Sedins. Got that from a guy liquidating his shop in NB.

EDIT 1 : This guy http://myworld.ebay....984.m1439.l2754 sometimes has unreal deals on black diamond hockey boxes... (not hobby boxes) but boxes with 6 packs of cards in them for as low as like $18 with shipping. I've gotten a lot off of him.

EDIT 2 : http://stores.ebay.c...sid=p4340.l2563 This guy is Canadian, his shipping costs are unbeatable and you can usually haggle him down $3 on the hobby box prices. I've gotten most of my Black Diamond through him. Ends up being half of retail.

Be very careful in your spelling and choice of words. Cram that title!!! Insert the top players names if you have the room. Last names.

Good luck!

just opened a box of Paninni certified, and had a hell of a break.
Ben Holmstrom Freshman Signatures - not numbered but hard auto'd
Joe Sakic Immortals - 58/500
David Booth Fabric of the Game - 216/399
Cory Schneider Fabric of the Game - 342/399
Ilya Kovalchuk Red Mirror - #'d 1/199 - collectors pay a premium for first and last issues, though I'll never quite understand why.
Joe Mullen Immortals Jersey - 2/49
Justin Faulk Prime Jersey Auto Rookie card - 11/25 (silver/white swatch) - was one of the 2 rookie d-men to attend the All star weekend this year.

The box average is 4 auto/memorabilia cards per box, and i got lucky with 5, and what a 5 they were. I'll probably put all of them, except for Sakic, Booth and Schneider, on ebay once I move into my new house this week.

I gotta say though, I'm pretty darn impressed by this set of cards, they actually look really good in person. I was kind of hesitant because they didn't look that great online, but the pictures do not do them justice. I'm glad I made the impulse buy on that box.

Edit: I also got a Bryzgalov masked men and an Adam Graves Eternals insert, neither are numbered.

just opened an upper deck series one tin, got a RNH YG card, now I have to debate with myself to see if I should sell it now (they are going for 60+ right now) or hold onto it and see how his career goes...

I think I'm going to have it graded, as a 9.5 graded one is currently at $140.50... I don't think I can justify keeping it right now... I can always get a couple more boxes to see if I can get another one...

I have the same debate too, but about a Tyler Seguin Black Diamond rookie. For now, I think I'll keep it, but I dunno...

And since this is also a memorabilia thread (other than hockey cards), I got my hands on a McFarlane Series 30 Henrik Sedin. 178/500 :D
