edging closer...

My wife went shopping last night at the new super wally world. Normally I wouldn't even notice, except she came back with 09/10 Blaster of series 2 hockey for me. No strings attached. 12 packs, 5 cards per....

Here's the highlights...
and two of the elusive Young Guns...
I hope with a name like this, he talks like Scrooge McDuck...
But the really cool thing is that of the 60 cards in the box, less the 7 inserts, I got 45 cards I needed for my set. These, along with the cards that Dog Faced Gremlin is sending me, leaves me only 5 cards short of the set. Not including the SP Young Guns of course, but I'll never finish them.

there are ALWAYS strings attached...

You should be getting that package any day now too, unless the border guard confiscated them for not having enough Canadian born players in it. I filled out double secret probationary documents to send them this time.

Ha! I bought a blaster of it too. I'll have a blog post on it tonight or tomorrow. :) Maybe I can send my YGs your way.

I love it when you score so many cards you need on the blind from a box, blaster, handful of packs, etc. Hope you gave wifey a kiss for that one.

LMK if you end up with any Victory parallels, I am foolishly working on the master set.
