UD Hockey Showcase Update

I've been meaning to do this post for a while now, but never really had the time for it until now. First though, if you haven't noticed, I changed the tracker on the sidebar for this project. Now I just want either the pewter or the bronze version for any given card. This eliminates any confusion. The two versions look close enough to each other that I want to just build one set, even if it is a mix of the two.

That said, I do have one of the pewter versions, a Dany Heatley, which came from a copy of Beckett Hockey that I bought back in the day. From here on out though, I don't really care which version helps complete the set. Here's the rest of what I got for myself back when the NPN program was going on:

This first group is definitely an interesting mix of players. I believe the idea of the set was to focus on players that changed teams coming out of the lockout and into the 2005-06 season. Not sure why they didn't just go with all the biggest stars if they were trying to bring fans back into hockey again.

These, plus the Osgood I've already shared as one of my picks, bring me to the halfway mark on the Hockey Showcase front, with 20 of the 40 cards in the set. I'd say that's a pretty good start. Now I just need to work on getting some of the Rookie Showcase cards.


  1. Hi Paul,

    Still have the Allison Hockey Showcase for you if you're interested, along with 10 cards from your 99-00 UD MVP SCE want list. Let me know.


    1. Hey Ryan, I haven't forgotten, I've just been a little lazy lately about digging through my monster boxes and binders to find some traders. Hopefully I'll have them soon.
