Jimmy Howard: Contenders Gold Parallel

Well, hello 2020. I've been meaning to post on here, but with everything hitting the fan lately I just haven't had the time or motivation to actually do it. I have some draft posts I'd like to get to and one of them is my latest Jimmy Howard pickup from eBay.

I bought this way back in November and its just been sitting on my card desk ever since. It is a gold parallel from 2011-12 Panini Contenders and is serial numbered 034/100. If only it had been one number higher, I'd have myself one of those fancy jersey number eBay 1/1's.

Rumor has it Howard's time in Detroit has finally come to an end. I'm not sure how to feel about that from a collecting perspective. On the one hand, his cards might become slightly more affordable after he's gone. On the other hand, my favorite Red Wing will be gone.

Even if he does leave the Red Wings I still plan on collecting his cards.

I'm sure some of you have dealt with your main PC player moving onto a new team. What was your thought process when it happened? Did it change your collecting of that player?
