Both Beckett book values and online asking prices are high on some players, confirming that copies were limited. Book values range from $5 (Sergei Samsonov and Dominik Hasek) to $100 or more (Steve Yzerman, Patrick Roy and Wayne Gretzky). Pavel Bure falls in the middle, at $40.
I'm sending one copy to one of the newest card bloggers, burefanatic10. His blog is A guy and his Pavel Bure collection (and other stories). I checked with him last night and he has a copy, but said mine looks to be in much better shape. I'll send up sending him one copy because it certainly belongs on that Bure collection of almost 1600 cards. The other is already in my TCDB inventory to trade or sell.
If you shop online and haven't signed up and used ebates yet, you're missing out. I also use it on eBay to get money back from purchases there. Between referrals and cash back, I've gotten over $150 in a year. FREE CARDS!
