Then I figured out the motivation for the kind gesture:
I was able to decipher the scribble ;) (Brett would be proud) and it says : "Michael - go nucks? blech!" Well I have to thank you Casey for your kind condolences! The cards are just the beginning of my recovery process.
Let's take a look:
We start with four cards from my favourite low end set. The Salo is also a glossy parallel.
These next four cards are from last years Upper Deck Series 1, luckily I only had the Kesler so the other 3 cards are brand spankin' new.
A nice recent card of Alex Edler, it's really too bad Edler played so poorly for the Canucks. A better performance out of him may have not caused us Game 2.
The controversy has officially taken a huge twist. With Bobby Lu saying he would waive his no trade clause, could Schneids be our starter next season? Who knows, only Mike Gillis (and I don't even think he knows either). If anything I feel comfortable with either goalie in net, although Cory does seem to have the confidence to jump to the starter position next season.
This was a SWEET card to find in the package. A 2011-12 QUAD Ruby /100 of Roberto Luongo. Well in this showdown of hockey cards, Luongo has the edge over Schneider for sure.
Thanks for a couple awesome cards for my Goalie Project.
Last but not least is this beauty vintage of Andre Boudrias. This very nicely conditioned and centred card comes from 1970-71 Topps. The classic pink background against the vintage Canucks jerseys make this card a welcomed piece of cardboard in my collection.
Thank you so much Casey for the great lot of cards! It's always nice to see the generosity in the hockey blogging community (even if our teams are mortal enemies) ;)
GO NUCKS GO!
