There’s just something that I love about the look of this card/sticker. I can’t put my finger on it, but I think it’s a combination of the design, the picture and the Donruss logo on it. While the picture is an action, on-ice one, it’s still less “action” than most and I like it for that reason. The Donruss logo gives me that “warm fuzzy” feeling because it brings on thoughts of my childhood. When I grew up collecting baseball cards, Donruss were always my favorites.
Like any of the “base” Shaw items, I didn’t pick up the first one of these that hit eBay. There were a couple that were $1 plus $2.50-3 shipping, but I waited. I knew that if I waited, I’d find a much better deal and I did. I ended up paying $1.49 for it, with free shipping. It all goes back to my piece from a couple of weeks ago about another pickup – on lower priced items, I’m willing to chance cheap or free shipping in a PWE.
