Christmas Box Breaks! A Mysterious Crosby Artifact Landered!
Merry Christmas everyone!
This Christmas was mainly card/hockey-oriented for me (besides a Subway gift card )
This was my "big" item that Santa got me this year:
About a month ago, I noticed that Frameworth was having a massive door crasher sale and I've always wanted to add one of these to my mancave so I gave Santa a call and he was able to accommodate me.
Next up are some random set/PC cards:
The Manassero is for my SPA Golf Future Watch Auto Set /699 and /299. This card leaves me with only the Gary Woodland /299 left to complete the set. The Annika is for my random PC since it's always nice to have an auto of Mrs. 59 and the best female golfer of all-time. The Leafs quad is also for the PC. I'll take memorabilia of those four guys any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
The lone Pietrangelo PC card came from my sister:
Now for the boxes. I took advantage of CnC's Black Friday deals and bought a box of CvtW and 12/13 Artifacts. From CvtW:
Adam Larsson International Material Jersey Black /120
Dino Ciccarelli Canadian Cloth Jersey Black /120
Tim Thomas Global Greats Silver /50 (Great pad piece with some wear/stitching)
Nikolai Khabibulin World Junior Grads Silver /90
Pavel Bure Autograph SP (can't seem to find any others on eBay)
Mikko Koivu Autograph
+ inserts not scanned
From 12/13 Artifacts:
Nikolai Kulemin Jersey/Patch /75
Ryan Ellis Team Canada /999
Jarome Iginla Team Canada /999
Steve Ott/Mike Ribeiro Tundra Tandems Dual Jersey
Ryan Getzlaf Horizontal Dual Jersey /36
Kyle Clifford Autofacts
Riley "The Super Drunk Purple Teletubby" Sheahan RC /999
Brandon Manning RC /999
Tony Twist Sapphire Parallel /85
Carolina Rookie Redemption (most likely Ryan Murphy if there is a season)
Definitely not the greatest box but hey, it was free!
Now to finish things off with a box of 11/12 SPA from my uncle:
Rookie HoloFX Jonathan Blum
Rookie HolFX Tim Erixon
J.P. Dumont Sign of the Times Auto
Anton Lander Future Watch Auto Redemption /999
I saw a redemption in one of my last packs so I knew it had to be somewhat decent after those first two hits:
SP Authentic Mystery Dual Auto Redemption
So yes, I'd say that is better than somewhat decent.
Thanks for the look everyone and Merry Christmas! Everything is available FT for Pietrangelo cards that I need or FS.

Very nice break! Love that Leafs quad. Shame it's for your PC, I would've been first in line for it .
Congrats and Merry Christmas!
I will leave my signature the same until the Toronto Maple Leafs miss the Stanley Cup playoffs. In short, I will never change my signature.

If you're up for selling the dual redemption PM me - I'm up for taking a risk...

The problem is that everybody tries to rip everybody off!
