Okay, I'll admit. I have been going a little Dominion crazy the last couple of weeks. But with the product having been out for a while, prices are starting to drop on a lot of the Rookie autographed patch cards. What's a hockey collector supposed to do?
These two cards came from the seller, and at $30 shipped for the pair, I'd say I made out pretty well.
Adam Larsson Peerless Patches 3/40
was selected by the New Jersey Devils with the fourth overall pick of
the 2011 NHL entry draft. After two seasons in the Swedish Junior League
(J20) and three years in the Swedish Elite League, he was ready to
start right away in the NHL. He played in 65 games with the Devils
during the 2011-12 season, scoring two goals and 16 assists. Adam's
father, Robert, was actually drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the
sixth round of the 1988 draft, but never made the jump to North American
Ben Scrivens Rookie Autographed Patch 43/199
This one was the more expensive of the two, but considering his role, and where he plays, I was surprised it went for so little. Anyway, Scrivens went undrafted, but signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs on April 28, 2010, and was called up during the 2011-12 season, where he totaled a 4-5 record in 12 appearances, with a .313 goals against average and a .902 save percentage. He has been with the Leafs for the 2012-13 season as James Reimer's permanent backup, and has helped get the Leafs into some serious playoff contention.
