Drop The Gloves House of Oglethorpe had struck a deal with me for a card that he offered up from his collection. I agreed to an awesome deal and when it arrived, it arrived with some extra coolness. The card which which was the focus of the deal, I will share at a later date. Here are extras that arrived with it and I can't thank Casey enough for his kindness and generosity.
08-09 UD Masterpieces Alex Delvecchio Brushstrokes Brown Auto
2001-02 BAP Signature Series Igor Larionov
Check out this resume:
2 time WJHC Gold medalist
4 time World Champion
1 time Canada Cup Champ
2 time Olympic Gold Medalist
Olympic Bronze Medalist
and 3 time Stanley Cup Champion.
For a player who spent most of his prime playing in Russia, he came over to Canada at the age of 29 and rattled off 14 pretty impressive NHL seasons. This also completes another HOF'er off my RC/Memorabilia list. Like most collectors I have dozens of Larionov rookies it was much harded to land the auto than the rookie here.
Thank you very very much Casey for the beautiful additions and I will soon share the center piece of our deal.
