Today's mail brought the first card in my newly started Jimmy Howard collection. It's a 2005-06 Artifacts Rookies numbered 727/750. Not a bad pickup for less than $10.
It's a great looking card except for his Maine helmet and the black and white pads. They don't go that well with the Wings uniforms. Most of his rookie cards are the exact same.
This is the first of hopefully many cards. I've been trying to find all of them and there are quite a few, most of them aren't too expensive, but that will probably change. There were only a few too pricey for me, namely any of the auto-patch cards from The Cup.
So if anyone has any unwanted Jimmy Howard cards taking up space, let me know, and maybe we could work out a trade. I've got plenty of cards I want and need to get rid of.
