Jimmy Howard: UD Game Jersey

I'm closing in on 400 posts here now, this being number 399. I can't believe I've made it this far, as I thought it would just be something I did casually for a while then subsequently lose interest. Well, that has yet to happen as I still enjoy this hobby each and every day, thanks in large part to the hockey card blogging community.

Anyway, here's another one I managed to grab for a great price during my latest eBay spending spree. It's a UD game jersey from 2011-12 Upper Deck Series 1. I've seen tons of these hit eBay since it's release, but never wanted to pay the typical $5 or so. I manged to grab this one for just $0.99 plus shipping.

Even though the swatch is white on this one, I still really like the card. I look at it this way, at least with the Red Wings jerseys the red is no more common than the white when you take both home and road into account. That said, should there really be a premium for something that is a 50/50 kind of thing? Do you put a premium on colored swatches?

I've got two more Howard's on the way from this little spree plus another card for one of my PC projects that hasn't been updated in a while now, so stay tuned for those.


  1. I don't know if I put a premium on them as much as I would be more willing to lay money down and buy a two colour over a single (especially white). But if the price is right, anything goes.

    1. I'd definitely pay a little more for a two color vs one color.

  2. Nice simple Howard for the collection. Congrats in advance for the 400
