What's Bruin in My Mailbox? Episode II

A few days back, I teased that I got a great deal on a great card. To be honest, this might be one of the best cards that I've added to my collection. It does adhere to my "under $3" and "Bruin/Whaler player" rules so I decided that with a price just south of $2, that this was a steal and a half. Without any further ado, here it is...

2013-14 Panini Titanium Jonathan Toews/Patrice Bergeron Game Worn Gear #017/100

A beaut, if I do say so myself. I was able to score this Toews/Bergeron combo card with only a few hours left and didn't expect my bid to last. Imagine my surprise when I saw the winning e-mail come to my inbox from eBay! While the swatches of jersey are plain, I'm just happy they aren't both black. That would have seriously thrown off my interest level for it. Knowing that it's only one out of one hundred also makes it super sweet. I'm an easy collector to please, so a combo card of two of the best players in the National Hockey League, serial numbered to 100 will make me an absolute happy camper. As a Bruins fan, you have to like Bergeron. He's a hustle guy and I've always thought of Toews as a Bergeron-type player as well. Both guys are insanely likable and I haven't met anybody that has a bad thing to say about either.

Albeit quick, that is it for me today. With some cards currently in the mail and heading to my home, stay tuned for more!


  1. Very nice addition! When Bergeron's career is over he'll be considered one of the greatest Bruins of all-time in my opinion.

  2. Definitely. He's just so good and has been since day one. Great player and great guy.
