#3776307 My Card Collection

Day 1 of the expo. Went to Zets for breakfast as usual and headed in. Day started out slow and someone came by to see if I wanted to buy his cards. He started pulling out cards and I saw a Gretzky rookie. Negotiations started and I offer him $500 for the Gretzky, Crosby auto, Kobe auto, Patrick Roy auto and Ovy auto. He wanted more so I pull out 5 $100 and flashed it. I knew the deal was done. He took it

Within 5 mins the Kobe auto and Gretzky sold for $500. 2 hours latter the Crosby auto sold for $100. If you are wondering yes I sold them cheap. Could have sold the 3 cards for about $200 more but it was dump for a profit right away. Still have the Patrick roy auto and Ovy auto and expect to sell them quickly for $150.

Otto was sitting at the booth waiting for his buddies to arrive. I was walking around and saw a vlady jersey for $100. I thought wow what a deal. I have purchase other jerseys from him in the past and knew they are authentic and not fakes. Grab one and came over to the booth and threw it over to Otto. He absolutely loves it. Put it on and didnít take it off. 2 other guys saw it and asked me how much. They both ran over and got one too

I went in with very low expectations and believe I will do pretty good. So more money for the craps table in Vegas

If HBO continues to milk the GoT cow with spin off series, I hope it's an anthology, True Detective style, with one season story arcs throughout the world and history of the lands

If anyone is interested I am running a poker tournament for my daughters softball team. Itís in Aurora on March 23

I would like to thank JP and Sev for attending. We had a total of 67 players

JP came in 4th and Sev won the tournament

The team did extremely well and they now want to adopt my daughter on the team. The team is mainly 2008 girls and my daughter is a 2007. So next year we are on another team

Sev was also very generous and donated a part of his winnings back to the team

How about this: Vegas Flights. In the year 2050, in the last gasps of habitation on Earth, new planet assignments are broken down along class lines. Our scrappy orphan hero, Brayden "Chips" Higgins, dreams of winning an annual poker tounrament held by an unscrupulous casino/space travel tycoon, which grants upper-class citizenship on Planet Zazbonax to its lucky winner. But all is not as it seems, and matters are complicated when Chips finds love in the least likely of places...sitting across the table.

Huge night tonight Raptor fans. Spurs in town and with them the return of my favourite Raptor of all time.
The return of the man who was instrumental in the Raptors becoming a top franchise in the NBA over the last years, and one of the most honest to goodness good guys in the NBA.

Welcome home Rudy Gay!

What an amazing night. If you are a hockey fan and you go to Vegas this is a must event you need to see. Itís just so different than anywhere else. Was a perfect night for us with the kids. We saw an amazing game , lots of goals and we got to see Austonís 100 career goal ( and 101).

To top it off we happened to find them coming out at the bus and the look on my sons face when Matthews waved to him was beyond priceless.

Interesting tidbit I have been in attendance to see 6% of Austonís Career goals. Considering I have never seen him in Toronto play itís pretty cool

Last week, the Ontario govt put out a new policy on Autism funding.
Of all the people I've been reading thoughts from on this recent development for the autism community, Elliott Friedman put it best.

If you live in Ontario, please please believe this has nothing to do with politics. This is all about kids, their future. and the future well being of this province.
If nothing else makes you want to help these kids now, you best believe the cost will be so much greater later than it is today if we dont help them learn and become at least a little independent.

Please see thought #31

Everyone knows of the Menendez brothers.


The card before it was found to be them was worth 25 cents
