That would've been a nice tin at full price even. That Panthers patch is amazing!

What did i count 7 different colors in that crazy patch? Yeah, thats Gordie...if you sell everything you should come out ahead. I would think Gordie and the Vokoun will cover 1/2 of the tin, the remaining 4 should get you back to even if not ahead.

Damn, just his luck there's a Voukoun that's just a tad nicer than his on Ebay right now, but at least that'll be a guide of what to expect.

I guess its is just something about Vokoun that screams "throw an amazing patch on my cards."

I don't know if theirs are nicer or not, but your right about they should be good ones to judge auction value on!

Is Gordie Howe the Chad Ocho Cinco of hockey or something?

The eye patch is from a Vokoun Nashville Predators jersey. Also, the 3 patches PSkell02 posted are also from a Nashville jersey. Still some great looking patches and congrats on the Howe. I have a few autos but none that are labeled "Mr. Hockey". I dont care for the way Howe and Upper Deck have chosen to brand him over the last several years. You're Gordie Howe, doesnt that say enough!?!?

That Vokoun card is BEAUTIFUL!!! You should yield a premium with that! That might even be a nice piece to hang on to. Although, I'm a sucker for really unique cards!

You want my St. Louis LL Patch??? $199.99 BIN!!! Don't forget that Howe was given that name. Just like Gretzky was given "The Great One". He didn't make it up like Chad "I'm G#*" Johnson

I don't remember stating he made it up, I know it was given to him. I just think they should add the mans real name to the cards. Just my opinion. Also, you missed the boat on those St.Louis skates I had. I never got an email or PM from you. If you are interested I can see about getting some more sticks this season. PM me, I dont want to hijack this thread anymore than I already have.
