Congrats go out to the Los Angeles Kings who won the Stanley Cup last night by beating the New Jersey Devils 4 games to 2 in a best of seven series. Being a Sharks fan, I thought I'd be a bit unhappy about this... but in the end I don't feel any highs or lows emotionally. The Kings were amazing throughout the playoffs, and good on them for winning it all!
Speaking of the Kings, I just received this beauty of a card in the mail today. It's from 11/12 Panini Pinnacle. I call this a beauty of a card for 3 reasons. Well, one, the obvious one is that Milano is HOT...
Secondly, this card carries a very nice book and street value and is quite desired by collectors. And thirdly... Alyssa Milano is HOT.
Milano has signed for both Panini's football and hockey products and both types of collectors have shown interest in her on eBay. This got me to thinking... Panini has recently come out with a lot more non-traditional autograph cards in their hockey products - cards like Fans of the Game and even announcer cards. What do you think about these types of cards? Do you collect them or want them? I'd be interested in your opinion. If you would, please answer the following questions in the comments section:
1. What do you think of celebrity autograph cards in hockey products?
2. If you could have a celebrity autograph appear in a hockey product who would you want and why?
In my opinion, I do like these card and I find them to be very interesting pulls, but I have heard on various forums that people do not like these kinds of cards. Sound off in the comments section and be heard!
