A Couple Dominion Autographed Patch Cards from Ebay

I just simply can't stay away from a good Dominion deal.

I found a couple of cards I needed on Ebay, took advantage of the combined discount, and added some great looking cards to my collection.

The first is an awesome looking card of Rangers defenseman Marc Staal. I've always been a fan of the Staal brothers, especially with Jordan helping the Penguins win a Cup in 2009. Eric won it in 2006, making Marc the only Staal in the NHL without his name on the Cup. Baby brother Jared is playing with the Hurricanes's AHL affiliate, but has yet to make his NHL debut. Marc's contract with the Rangers runs out in 2015, so maybe he'll decide to make Carolina the destination for the Staal family reunion in a couple of years.

I also grabbed up a couple cards for my collection of 2011-12 Dominion Rookie Patch autos.

The first is of Flyers rookie Harry Zolnierczyk. The card is numbered 134/199 and features a piece of the crest. Zolnierczyk scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game, on October 18, 2011. He ended up splitting time between the Flyers and their AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, but was at the NHL level for 37 games, scoring 3 goals and 3 assists in the 2011-12 season.

Gustav Nyquist was a fourth round selection (121st overall) by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He spent the majority of the 2011-12 season with the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL, but played 18 games at the NHL level, getting one goal and six assists.

That's all the Dominion for now, but I'm sure there will be much more before too long.
