Other Toy Lines / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: May 9, 2003, 02:13 PM »
No problem at all.  I knew when I bought the baseball variants, I'd have a hard time getting rid of them.  LOL.  

I've ordered cases previously, though I prefer because of the customs issues with ordering from US retailers.  My case of NHL4 had 3 variants in it and I am hoping for a near repeat performance for NHL5 (aka the Canadian series).  Are you over on the McFarlane board as well?  

I'm not so into the NFL figs.  For myself I have regs of Bennett, Culpepper, Moss (dick) and Vick.  I would love to have a 49ers Rice, but no way I was ever going to drop $100 on something I marginally want in the first place.  I still have a few NFL4 figs, but only regs - Williams,  red socks Sehorn and a couple of others.  That's about it though.  I'll probably just keep hoping to have luck with NFL6-7.  Probably won't happen, but ya never know.  I think between 6 Walmarts and two TRU's our city received about 25 cases total.  Just an absolute madhouse.  Fights in the aisles, that also happened with NHL4.  Crazy people.

Cool.  I collect primarily hockey, have all of NHL3 and NHL4 regs and variants.  Most of NHL2 (all regs) and have repaints of Roy and Cujo.  

Not much luck up here with NFL.  The line is too hot with collectors and resellers alike and I don't believe in physical violence to obtain toys.  As such, I miss out on most if not all of the NFL stuff.  Just as well really as I'd probably end up trading it away.  

I have spares of most of NHL4 chase if you need any (not Kovalchuk).  I also have a grey Ichiro and a grey Hoffman if you want them.  I can either sell them to ya (C&S) or we could trade (2 SW for 1 SP?).  No worries if none of it interests ya.  Just prefer to trade with someone from a star wars board.

part of it is related to my dad's job (insurance salesman) and my job.  I get to go to conferences in many places in the US.  Wisconsin was the most recent.  This October I'll be in Ohio and plan on drifting down to Louisville, home of my favorite college basketball team.  

My dad sold life insurance and one of the perks of his job was various conferences based on sales performance.  Most of those Caribbean spots and lots of the US destinations are attributable to family travel.  Minnesota and North Dakota relate mostly to drinking ;).  The Western States are primarily a result of skiing.  

I'd really like to see much more of the Eastern US but at this point don't have much reason to go out that way.  

Aus and points in that direction are due to a little 6 month vacation.  

Then there's the age advantage ;)

Due apologies Cory, 3.  I had forgotten what the chase caps were.  I knew you had the two Jango caps, bust and full.  

A quick perusal of ebay shows these have come down considerably since last summer.  The boxed sets are available with BINs of around 89-99, making them about $2 a piece.  I had paid $3 last year and several individual caps are available for around $1.50 each.  

I need to find mine (stored in a bin ::)) and inventory them.  I think I have nearly 30 or so, but if it's less, getting the boxed set might be the better option to complete the set.

Well, that SHOULD do it.

4-2.  Still about 2 minutes left, but I'm almost ready to call it.

4:54 left, 3-2.  If you ain't brave enough to watch, I'm not going to tell you who's winning.  Maybe if you ask nice :P

edit, Roloson injured, Vancouver gets a penalty and the classy ::) Vancouver fans are chanting B*** S***  Yeah, nice quality touch there.  Your guy gets the penalty, injures the goalie in the process and you lack class.  If I wasn't before, I'm cheering for the Wild now.

Mine's supposed to be $185 Cdn shipped.  But I must confess to some degree of nervousness about it coming in.  I ordered it from John's collectibles out in BC.  Communication has been great and every time I ask, he says no problem if I want the deposit refunded.  I'd like to support him, but do not want to miss out. :(

This was the major cross over occuring in all the X books back in the mid-late 80's?  If so, I have probably all the original issues involved.  If not, I am remembering something else.  It was tough for me to finish.  Titles were hot at the time and I went to Australia for a stretch (where they hand wrote the price on the cover in ink).  My comic story put aside many of the titles for me, but not all.  

Would certainly make an interesting movie.
