Jimmy Howard: 2005-06 Black Diamond RC

This is one of the Howard cards that had been on the radar since I started collecting him back in 2010. I've seen it available plenty of times since then, but never for a price that I was comfortable paying. That was until a few weeks ago when I came across this one.

I placed an opening bid of $0.99 like usual and just waited to see what happened. I figured there was an outside chance at it for that price, but that it would likely go higher. Surprisingly it ended at that initial bid and I came away with a great RC for $2.31 delivered. Not bad considering this card is listed here on COMC for no less than $12 before shipping. 

Like most Black Diamond cards, this one doesn't scan well. It looks so much better in person. Another cool thing about this one is that it would fit right in with my Goaltending Gallimaufry project. Now that is something I want to get back to work on this year.
