Jimmy Howard: Trade Pickup

You may have seen on his blog already that Justin (from The Hopeful Chase) and I  worked out a trade recently. He received his end of the deal and now I've got mine. It started as a 1-for-1 swap of the Certified Mirror Blue parallel of Lecavalier and a Jimmy Howard red border rookie from Beehive. Well, it turned into a multi-card deal and in return for sending a few unwanted Bolts cards his way, I got some excellent additions to my Red Wings PC.

First, here's the Beehive red border rookie:

This is a great looking card. It's extremely simple and the red border works very well with the red and white of the Wings uniforms. The only aesthetically unpleasing thing about this card is the mask, but it's hard to complain when it was all he had to wear when getting started with the Wings back in 2005. Great card, thanks again Justin!


  1. I love 05-06 Beehive, although the vast array of colors gets a bit confusing sometimes, in terms of rarity.

    Congrats on the nice addition!

    1. Thanks! Beehive is great and you're right about the parallels (blue, red, yellow, beige...) they're a real pain to track down. The red is the only one I have for Howard at this point.

  2. Glad you liked the cards, I'll keep an eye out for anything else that you might like.
