A Shark-Infested Mailday
I very rarely participate in group breaks anymore but when I saw a break for some 2007-08 Sweet Shot Hockey for fairly cheap, I decided to give it a shot. The break was held by ‘arplatinum‘ from Youtube and I ended up drawing the San Jose Sharks. Here’s a look at my haul:
The first card was an event-used triple jersey rookie card of center Torrey Mitchell. It’s a common but it is serially numbered to 599 and the swatches are great with a trio of colors (much better than the boring white)!
The second card I got from the break was one of the lowest-numbered of the case, a Signature Shots Stick Signings of Jonathan Cheechoo (08/25). The stick isn’t game-used and Cheechoo has one of the worst autographs in recorded history, but it still looks awesome. This card is currently in a pending transaction.
The final card is my personal favorite. It’s a Signature Shots Ice Signings Autograph of Joe Thornton (037/100). I love the design of these cards and the fact that the “rink” gives the player ample space to sign. Good job UD (yes, I actually said that).
EDIT: These cards have all been traded.
