The EBAY Addiction #3 – Hockey and MST3K

I learned how to skate during my sophomore year in high school. This is extremely late in life especially for a Minnesotan. So when it was announced that an NHL team was coming back to MN in the late 90’s, I dived head first into collecting the league’s trading cards.

This collecting bug only lasted a few years due to finances.

Now, in my research through the ebay-verse, I discovered renowned Diamond Kings artist, Dick Perez, painted an insert set called Ice Kings! The 1993-94 Donruss complete set could be had for a reasonable price.

I think I really started to watch Hockey around 1995 so these players are right on the Genesis of my fandom!

This has peaked my interest into collecting this year’s Upper Deck hockey main set. I’m pretty sure my next Hobby Box break will be the 2015-16 Series one.

Another love of mine throughout my life has been MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000. This was a MN based TV program that aired for 10 seasons. My wife and I have it playing on our bedroom TV most nights.

One of the best episodes is undoubtably The FINAL SACRIFICE. If you’ve seen the episode you will understand my need for the next ebay purchased card.

If you haven’t take some time to enjoy great comedy!
