Avalanche Stuff Watch™

To be honest, I don't collect a lot of hockey memorabilia. Other than an Avs jersey, a Nordiques jersey (both replicas) and a bunch of old hockey cards I collected as a kid, very little of my personal budget is spent on hockey-related junk. Oh, I do have a couple of pucks and a few McFarlane toys of Avalanche players. Almost forgot about those. But yeah, other than all of that, my hockey swag is limited.

While I don't buy a lot of stuff, I appreciate and encourage others who do. So Dear Lord Stanley will periodically comb the internets (it's a series of tubes!) for cool Avalanche-related junk.

Without further ado, I present to you the first installment of Avalanche Stuff Watch™!!

Item #1:

On eBay, a 9.5-rated Joe Sakic rookie card from O-Pee-Chee. A total steal at a $229.99 buy it now price. Be the first on your block to spend more on a small piece of cardboard than most guys do on a suit (sad but true).

Item #2:

Also on eBay, a complete set of head-shot photo slides for the entire 1995-96 Colorado Avalanche team! That's right, you too can own tiny pictures of each Stanley Cup winner and bore your children to death with a private portraiture slide show! Totally worth the starting bid of $50!

Item #3:

At SportsFanfare.com, an autographed 8x10 photo of Alex Tanguay in the Colorado "alternate" jersey. So what if he's no longer on the team? At $53, how can you not buy it?

Item #4:

On the NHL.com Auction Network, a goalie stick signed by Jose Theodore and actually used in a Colorado Avalanche game! Current bid is $299 with only three days left, so don't wait! And remember, you know it's high quality because if Theodore used it in a game, it's never been scuffed by a single puck!
