Default Finally after 10 years, its all mine!

10 Years of searching and two years of back and forth with this one seller finally landed me the Holy Grail of my collection today. I'll let the scan talk....



I'm now only missing the Dave Christian. If anyone has it, please get in touch with me ASAP!



Also got this in the mail today too which I think is nifty.



Thats all! Thanks for looking.
-James

True story. Buddy of mine pulled one of those and sold it for $60 upon release. My last words were, "I would wait until a few more surface, could be rare".

Did he listen? No.

Great card.

He could have waited 10 years and got 15x that amount from me!

He could've waited a month and gotten $600, I believe.

They were going around $200-400 after release if I recall correctly. It wasn't until two or three years later that they started going for big coin. I was lucky enough to get the Broten and Ramsey for $700 combined. I wish I would have picked up a Craig back then too.

33 years ago today folks- many of you were not around but it was magical, could not image the hype and media coverage today. Game was shown on tape delay in the US on a Friday night. With no social media and zero over the top sports coverage, many folks did not know the result was already out there when they were watching the game. That just the way it was back them, 33 yrs ago............

$60 for that card upon release? I spent that much on gas today..
An equal injustice - Sports Illustrated didn't include "Miracle" in their Top 5 Hockey Movies of All Time!

Awesome! I need to double check my decades break - but pretty sure I put together the Miracle Auto's as well.
