Dominik Hasek: Recent Pickups

While I was at the card show a little while back, I made my first significant in-person trade. I unloaded eight or so cards I had no interest in for a few nice pieces for my Dominik Hasek collection. I'm not going to get into what I traded for these, as I do not really care about trading for book value. All I know is I got rid of some cards I didn't want, and picked up a few that I really wanted. Works for me. 

The first one I got is this game used stick from 2001-02 Upper Deck Top Shelf. Stick cards are nice, because there are far fewer of these than plain jersey cards. As an added bonus, this one is just barely three colors, where a lot are either one color or just wood grain.

This next one is probably my favorite of the three. It's a triple game used jersey from 2006-07 Between the Pipes. What I like most, is the fact that it has a swatch from Buffalo, Ottawa and Detroit. The huge seam on the Ottawa swatch is pretty cool too, although it kind of makes the surface of the card a bit uneven.

The last one is another nice dual jersey card from the 2006-07 SPx Winning Materials set. I like that one swatch is red and one is white, so they at least match the Wings jersey Hasek is pictured in on the front of the card.

These three bring me to four total memorabilia cards in the Hasek collection. I know that doesn't sound all that impressive, but it's still nice to have them. Now I just need to get an authentic Hasek auto, as I already have one I got through the mail a few years back.


  1. NICE CARDS!! I really like the stick one!

  2. Those are great!!! I just added a nice late 90's Hasek UD insert to my collection.

  3. I'm a Hasek fan, too. Those cards look great.
