My first redemption!!

Well I admit I was nervous, I didn't know who the redemption was gonna be right away and I didnt know how long to wait. This was my first redemption and I had only heard about them before.
I was able to find out who it was and I was happy that it was a goalie (RC) Marek Mazanec of the Predators.

So I filled out the required work online at upperdeck.com and waited. It didnt take long. They already had the card in stock which I am sure really sped up the process. It came in a soft sleeve within a top loader with a little piece of tape to keep the card secure inside the top loader. It was a little weird because there in no letter inside the bubble envelope and their address does not say upper deck. I actually had no idea what it was until I opened it.

The card came in great condition and was the correct one. Thank you upper deck, I look forward to my next redemption find.

A sweet numbered rookie redemption.
A really nice looking card, I am pretty happy with it.

My first and second Printing Plates

I have heard about printing plates for a few years and even seen them on the internet and a couple at a hockey card shop but I had never touched one or owned one. I know have 3, these were my first two.
The value of them is not amazing but it has the cool factor that these were used in the printing of the cards I am collecting. I hope to get a actual printed card that these plates produced at some point.
Its an added bonus that both are autographed which is a cool touch.

Im hoping he can get a shot and stay
 in the NHL, he has appeared in 3 games
so  far as of today.

Cory has spent a couple years in the
NHL already getting experience on a
few different teams.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Ottawa Senators
Buffalo Sabres
New York Islanders

I like that both players were with Canadian teams at least at the time of printing the cards, Conacher now plays with the Islanders.

Ripping new packs...2014-15 Upper Deck Series 1

Just picked up a fresh box...

There were a few decent hits inside.

Nice to get an auto!

Good goalie jersey - would have preferred two color!

Would have been better red!

It's nice getting three hits, all Canadian teams!
