TOP 60 CARDS (Part 7) - #30-26

Here we go again as we slowly inch our way to the top ranks in this countdown of my top 60 cards. The cards are slowly getting a little fancier, today I have 2 Game-Used and 1 Auto to rank. Let's get started.

#30 - 1992-93 UD Scott Niedermayer RC (#406, 562)

We start with a pair of cards. These are both from the 1992-93 UD set and it showcases not one but two different RC's. I don't really see the point of having a "Star Rookies" sub set and also a "Young Guns" set, but I guess they both count as rookies. Once again I have an inexplicable liking of these cards I believe I inherited in my childhood.

#29 - 2010-11 BTP Jordan Binnington "Game-Used Jersey - Silver" (/30) (#M-32)

This was a card I pulled from the Between the Pipes box I broke last year and was in fact my very first multi colour swatch jersey card. If memory serves me correctly, the silver variations are numbered to 30 copies but I could be wrong.

#28 - 2010-11 Score Tyler Seguin "SSP Hot Rookies" (#554)

I also pulled this from a box last year, this time Score. If you read my blog regularly you'll know I recently pulled a SSP Hot Rookie of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins with my box break this year. That card would also be in the 28th spot but I'm waiting it out until I finish up all 60 cards and after I'll do a continuous update. 

#27 - 2007-08 Fleer Ultra Daniel Sedin "Ultra Uniformity" (#U-DS)

This card came in a trade with Dave over at Wax Stained Rookie. This card symbolizes the start of my goal to collect more GU cards and really gave me some inspiration to kick start my collection. Plus it ain't to shabby to have a piece of jersey from an Art Ross and Ted Lindsay Award winner.

#26 - Gilbert Perreault AUTO "Old Timer Hockey Challenge"

This final card brings back memories from all the way back to my second post here at collectingforkicks. This is the first card from my former segment "Old Timer Treasures". Long story short, my grandma gave me a booklet when I was younger with a page full of old time hockey players signatures. Gilbert was one of them. With one of the nicest sigs and one hell of an impressive career, this card will always be cherished. I never really ever appreciated this card until recently, obviously it deserves a comfortable spot at number 26.

  1. Hi! Nice cards, but the Scott Niedermayer cards aren't rookie cards though. His rookie cards are these 2 from 1990-91!

    1990-91 Upper Deck #461 Scott Niedermayer RC
    1990-91 Upper Deck French #461 Scott Niedermayer RC

  2. Great stuff. I love reading these posts because it's great to see how differently each collector chooses their top 60. Isn't it funny how in the amount of time it takes you to compile the list and do the posts you end up accumulating at least a dozen more cards that you'd slot into the 60? The Seguin short print is my favorite from this bunch.

  3. Ya hopefully I'll be able to speed through these last cards so I can add my new cards soon.

    Thanks for the help Jess! That's weird that his young guns card isn't considered a RC. Still special in my collection
