NBA, NHL, NASCAR, Star Wars, History, Military, DC Comics, Olympics, whatever interests me

Current project is trying to get at least one card of everyone to ever get one for NBA, NHL and NASCAR. Also working on getting at least one example of every set ever for the above sports. (Wantlists on Cardboard History)

At the moment, attempting to dial back on the hobbies so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of classic car ownership.

I have some health problems that make it challenging for me to get to my trade stash. It makes me a slow trader as there are some days when I'm simply in too much pain to access the boxes. My health problems are not transferable so you do not need to fear catching anything from trading with me.

My first NHL Redemption card!

A while back my mom surprised me with a blaster of 2018-19 Artifacts, and I pulled a redemption card. When I turned it over, I was pleased to see that it didn't expire until 2021. I promptly logged in and redeemed it...amazingly, I remembered my username and password because the last time I redeemed a card via UD was all the way back in 2005! (Although it only shows two cards...when I know I redeemed several dozen via the website that are no longer listed. Maybe they age off after 17 years?)

It turned into this, which arrived on July 3rd:

So, not only is it my first successful NHL redemption, it's also my first card of Murphy! And I would not be surprised if it turns out to be my ONLY card of him ever. The 8 games he played in 2017-18 that got him this card is his only NHL experience. He spent all of 2018-19 in the AHL, with the Roadrunners and then the Gulls. He is currently playing for Kunlun Red Star in the KHL. While the KHL does issue cards, I don't have access to them. So this may be it...

I was surprised by the fact that the card was mailed out of North Carolina. Knowing UD is a west coast company, I expected it to be shipped out of California or Nevada...nope.

It wasn't the first redemption I pulled...but the first I was able to redeem. The first I pulled was from the 2014-15 Ultra set, but I didn't pull the card until 2019, so I was out of luck.
This is what the redemption looked like.

Thanks for reading.
