Did I REALLY just pull this card?!?

If I'm dreaming right now, please, don't wake me up!

I purchased a box of Portfolio from the Dave & Adam's Black Friday sale, and I've opened less than half of it...I was truly surprised to pull this card!

Without hyperbole, this may be the best card I've ever pulled. It's certainly my best Hockey pull. It's also only my second hobby box in the sport!

I'm still amazed and can barely believe I pulled this. WOW!

That's two pieces of leather and two fabric. I don't know for sure what kind of material the leather is, as I'm still learning about hockey, but all I can think of is the boots?  Maybe the gloves? I wish they told you what it was on modern cards.

By the way, it will NEVER be for sale, ever, under any circumstances!

  5. Any hit of the Great One would be awesome, but serial numbered to *2*? Mind blowing.

  8. Probably gloves. Gretz hated molded synthetic skates, though.

  10. Thanks everyone! I'm really glad to have woken up today and find it is all really true. As I quipped on the Trading Card Database, I'm on cloud 99.

  11. Man - that makes my single square of black Gretzky fabric look like dryer link. Interesting the photo selection. I wonder if the swatches are from an AS jersey, or if UD just decided to go orange on the card so the whole thing didn't look black and white (Kings).
