Free Cards from Drop the Gloves

After seeing a post on Drop the Gloves about giving away free cards for your favorite team, of course I jumped at the chance to see what kind of Penguins goodies would be coming my way. I was very happy to find the following cards:

Of course, the Crosby is nice, and you can't beat four Lemieuxs. The one I'm curious about is the Eric Tangradi rookie. Right now, he is in competition with rookie Beau Bennett for the left wing on the Evgeni Malkin/James Neal line. If he gets the spot it will be a HUGE boost for his career, and his cards will definitely increase in value.

Here are a few others, as well. I've always liked the Black Diamond cards, but they scan horribly. The Shawn NcEachern rookie is cool, too. I know he made the rounds during his NHL career, but I remember him as one of the better players on the team for a couple of the EASports NHL games that I played in the mid 90s.

It's always nice to receive free cards, and when they are Penguins, those cards will always be appreciated here.

  1. Glad they arrived safely. Y'know, I saw that Vitale kid fight Gregory Campbell last year and not only hang in there with Campbell, but rallied and got in some great shots.

    I don't think he scraps much, but I think a few guys took notice.
