Chantilly Loot - Hockey Section

Forgot a stack in my last show loot post.

Picked up several of my favorite hometown goalie, Braden Holtby of the Capitals.  Some are even the minor league Hershey Bears.  These were only a quarter or two each.

I've contemplated starting yet another player collection of the guy, especially since I was at his debut game in person, but I'm probably way behind getting the high end rookies at this point.

This is not primarily an addition to my Caps GU collection, but is actually a set hit.  The 2002-03 Pacific Private Stock Reserve set is in my opinion, the most elegant and beautiful hockey set basically ever.  I'm down to six jerseys (out of cards #101 to 150), but still need over half the first 100 base cards, and have basically ignored the SP rookies, as I often do.

And finally, probably my favorite Capital right now, Evgeny Kuznetsov.  Don't really even know what the sticker is, but it's in Russian, so I want it.  Always love the clear acetate cards too.  Might have to see what boxes of this set go for after I finish writing this post.  (Update: they're $155+, so maybe I'll just chase the base set.)

Спасибо за прочтение!

  1. The Ice set is one of my favorite issues every year. Such cool cards, no pun intended.
