My first post on the hockey board. I've been a member of the net 54 baseball board since its infancy in 2001. I just found the hockey section recently though! I grew up collecting hockey in Edmonton Alberta, and was lucky enough to witness the Oilers glory years in the 80's. My uncle had seasons tix so I went to plenty a regular season and playoff game during the Gretzky/Messier/Coffey/Fuhr/Kurri (etc) days. It was awesome. While my collecting habits started out as mostly hockey related, I branched out in the late 90's into vintage baseball and eventually into pre-1920 baseball cards.
ANYWAYS that's enough about me. I wanted to post about the hockey card that has always eluded me: the 1925 Dominion Chocolates Vezina. I had an opportunity to buy a vg/ex version of this card in the late 90's WITH the coupon intact for $150, but that was alot of money for me to spend on a card at that time, and I passed. Needless to say I've always regretted that. I've been looking for this card on ebay for a while now and they never show up. But alas, one did recently and it seems a little overpriced to me:
$900 with the coupon trimmed off and a bunch of horizontal creases. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind low grade cards, but the price seems a little crazy. Or am I not up to speed with today's market? What do you think a reasonable offer for this card would be?
Glad to have found this place.
