    So today a buddy of mine at work buys a box of hockey cards looking for a Sydney Crosby rookie. As we are opening the packs, he tells me if he doesnt get one he will buy another box, a few packs later he tells me maybe he'll just buy like 8 more packs.

    I want him to buy another box and tell him, "you know crosby is in the next box, if you dont buy it, sombody else will get it."

    So we go back to the shop. Joe Daleys, 666 St.James, and he decideds against a box but buys the last 8 packs in the current box Joe has. Darcy starts opening the packs looking for a crosby as Joe gets another box, he opens the box and prepares it to seel the packs.

    Im thinking tio myself, what the hell lets buy a few packs. I pick out 3 packs and buy them. As im opening my last pack darcy is watching, im shuffling through them and ther it is the crosby rookie. I laugh at Darcy and said i ****ing told ya so. lol He is just is disbelief, it was just so sweet!'

    I've been searching for this card to, since i love the penguins. Also did i mention the card rigth now is worth 250?
  2. 250 you say? That good buy you a decent DI...or 2 pedals...or or or...A WISHBASS!!!:D
  3. Makes me wonder whatever happened to that Nolan Ryan rookie misprint I had where the photo was backwards.

    Rock on

    Braylon Edwards rookie card?! Hold on to that, that is gonna be worth big money when Randy Moss retires and Braylon becomes the next greatest wide receiver in the NFL... mark my words!

  9. Oh yeah.

    I didn't have anything worthwhile in my baseball card collection as a kid. Alas.
