I finally got around to checking my morning emails from eBay for my saved searches just before noon. I wasn’t expecting too much – a 7-day auction right now would end on Christmas Day. Great for bargain hunters, not so great for sellers.
There wasn’t a whole lot of interesting items for Hamilton today, but this card, from Upper Deck’s new mega-set Documentary caught my eye.
I am not sure how exactly this set is going to work for the regular players – if Hamilton is on cards for 15 or 16 different Rangers games with the exact same picture, it will depend on how easy they are to pick up. This card, commemorating his HR Derby performance will definitely be on my list of ‘must-haves’ though. It looks like there is a series of HR Derby cards, as this one is numbered HR2 – there is probably a corresponding set of All-Star Game cards as well.
I imagine this set is going to be interesting for the dedicated team collectors out there – any of you guys care to comment on how you are tackling this? Is every card a must-have for you, or will you pick and choose?
