A month has passed since my last blog post. Well I have been busy not only at my work but in card trading too. Not to mention that I have created an introduction page to my homepage and forgot to write a blog post about it. Well I have received some great cards since the last post and here are some of them, because I even forgot to scan some of them.
Sandis Ozolinsh and trading cards
The 2001-02 BAP Memorabilia All-Star Emblems #ASE19 Sandis Ozolinsh /10 card is one of the greatest cards in my collection. And it is really difficult to find a really quality memorabilia card of Sandis Ozolinsh. The first Jersey or Patch cards with Sandis Ozolinsh was 1999-00 BAP Update Teammates Jerseys #TM23 Peter Forsberg/Sandis Ozolinsh with an NHL All-Star Game Jersey as I can recall, and I don't have it in my personal collection. Some collectors of course could be contented with this nearly 50 jersey, patch and some stick cards, but there is lucking some quality cards. Most of the memorabilia cards are with an NHL All-Star Game jerseys or patches. The 2013-14 ITG Decades 1990s Sandis Ozolinsh Nameplate cards are good of course but in this set are not even a base card with Sandis Ozolinsh, while cards with Arturs Irbe comes out every year since 2009-10 Between The Pipes Mega Stars till this years MVP set with autographs and O-Pee-Chee legends.
While Arturs Irbe is in a IIHF hall of Fame and he have spent some time working as an NHL goalie coach for some seasons it is understandable why there are so many Arturs Irbe cards. Sandis Ozolinsh retired after 2013-14 season and he has stepped away from hockey, but I'm sure that one day he will be in IIHF hall of Fame too, it is just a matter of time. And the first appreciation comes from Colorado Avalanche fans who voted Sandis Ozolinsh into 20th season Anniversary team line up (1). The players will be honored in a special on-ice ceremony before Colorado Avalanche contest against the Minnesota Wild on December 7. It sure will be great to bee back and I hope that card companies will at least ask for some autographs for some card releases.
