Awesome job again Ud!! And your right Chris, always the most wanted rookies out there for Hockey. Just look at the values.


Great job, the new Young Guns cards look great – I especially like the outline-sque effect around the players; really makes them pop out on the card. Hopefully I can land myself a Hopkins card; I’m still chasing the Hall YG for christ sakes!


Have to be careful on ebay. People are already paying $160 for a Ryan Nugent-Hopkins on Ebay even though the official cards haven’t been sold yet in stores.


i have 2 jordan eberle and 2 taylor hall young guns, got pre lucky in 2 weeks i must say
