My PSA 10 Collection
I've been collecting PSA 10 cards in the past few years, these are the hockey component of them.
1994-95 Finest Miikka Kiprusoff--I had a second one but the back was centered 90/10 and I wasn't happy with it so I picked up this one, which is perfect!
1994-95 Parkhurst SE Giguere--One guy had 100 count lots of these but they were supposed to go to Europe. Back door? Not sure, no one knew who Giguere was back then.
1994-95 Parkhurst SE Giguere Gold--This is another toughie. The Parkie Golds came one per box and there were 300 cards in the set, therefore this is a 1 in 15 cases card.
1995-96 Upper Deck Jose Theodore--There are four PSA 10s total, and the reason is because the backs are so dang susceptible to chipping.
1996-97 Upper Deck Patrick Marleau--On the other hand PSA 10 isn't tough for this year.
1996-97 Upper Deck Joe Thornton--This isn't too difficult to get either. I got 5 of these in one deal, now I'm down to one, the best one I think.
2002-03 Upper Deck Jason Spezza--This was a $100 card a few years ago, and it will probably get back there again. Other than Ryan Miller, this is the best rookie in 2002-03 that isn't SSP'd!
2005-06 Upper Deck Sidney Crosby--When you think Crosby rookie, this is one of the first cards that comes to mind.
2005-06 Upper Deck McDonalds Crosby--I'll take a PSA 10 with Fries and a Coke please.
2005-06 Upper Deck Alex Ovechkin--This one is deceptively tough to get in PSA 10 condition because the back is susceptible in chipping and although they produced a ton of it, 2005-06 Series 2 had production issues.
2005-06 Upper Deck Zach Parise--Just picked this one up the other day for $25. Since the regular version has been ending near $15, that seems like a steal.
2007-08 Upper Deck Carey Price--I paid $66 for this, its probably dropped a bit, but if you believe like I do that he will be one of the top goaltenders in a few years, its a good deal.
2008-09 Upper Deck Steve Mason--I paid $42 for this, its dropped a bit but it will bounce back too. I'm picking up duplicates for $25-30 right now, I can't see it going down from here.
2008-09 Upper Deck James Neal--Got a pair of these for $36. This guy is the real thing and I'm still buying duplicates.
