It has been quite a while since I have found a Kevin Dineen card from my want list. Yes, I have gotten the Upper Deck French Buy-Back and autograph from In the Game's Decades 1980s sets, which came out this year. I mean a card that was issued long ago that has been a long time resident on the want list. In any event, I finally crossed another card off the want list:
(not sure why I can't just insert the image. Oh well.)
It's nice to get this card off the list. Now only four to go (plus whatever comes out next week in Dominion)

In the years that I have collected Kevin Dineen cards (since the summer of 2006, I think), I had never come across the 1993-94 Stadium Club First Day Issue cards of Kevin Dineen. That includes the U.S. version and the Canadian version. And last week, both of those cards popped up on eBay with a Buy It Now price. Needless to say, I didn't waste any time hitting the BIN. Here they are
There isn't much of a difference between the cards. The only thing I can see different (besides the centering on the back) is the "PTD IN U.S.A." in small letters on the back of the OPC card. After looking for both these cards, it was amazing to see them put on eBay on the same day.

Finally, a new card! The 1991-92 Swedish Semic Sticker:
A big thank you to Jeff B. for trading me this card (whose front and back is pictured above)! Jeff is another Kevin Dineen fan, and knows a dealer who can obtain European hockey cards. Jeff got this card for me, and traded it to me for my extra Pro Set Award Winners Kevin Dineen. A steep price to be sure, but trading a double for a Dineen card I don't have generally seems like a good deal to me. Especially if it help out a fellow Kevin Dineen collector.
In case you think this card already was in the Museum, well, you are right. Kinda. The Finnish version was also in the museum:
There is also rumored to be a blank backed version (a rumor I have heard from two different sources), but I've never seen it. If anyone finds one, you know that I would be very interested.
In other news, a Parkhurst Dineen/Liut autograph went for an insane price of $280 on eBay:
All I can say is wow. I wonder if the winning collector is a Dineen, Liut, and/or Whaler collector.

It has been a while since I've posted a new entry, and that is because there haven't been many additions to the collection the past few months. I did post a new graded card today:
NM-MT normally isn't a great grade, but it's hard to imagine a lot ofgraded OPC stickers are out there. Also, another 1991-92 Pro Set Award Winners card came up on eBay which I snatched up. Still, not much new.
The site does look different, as Webs.com started using a "Gallery" image posting system. I must say I think it's a pretty big improvement, and the site is better because of it.
In any event, I'm still on the lookout for more Kevin Dineen cards that I don't have (or even some that I do have). I suppose that it's gotten to a point that I have most of his cards, that finding new ones will get harder and harder. That's a good thing, I suppose, but I'd love to find some new cards (especially those two team issued cards I missedout on last January).
