Will these be the last cards of 2013?


Will 2 former Islanders, 1 Islander I already had and Grabner be it?

I don't know. I do know that, in my final trip to my local for 2013, this is what I came home with, and that, barring my finding cards in New York on New Year's Eve while I'm up there for the Andrew W.K. show tomorrow night (pro tip: get to Irving Plaza by 9 PM and guarantee that you'll see me perform "War Pigs" with the Punk Rock/Heavy Metal Karaoke band), or my getting cards in the mail tomorrow (Mail's already been here today; anyone have stray packages in the mail to me that I'm not aware of?), these will probably be it.

Oh, come on. No matter how unscannable this year's Black Diamond cards are, no matter how many copies of '13 Upper Deck Tavares I have now (2; any takers for my spare?), and no matter how many of these guys play for other teams now, they're still Islanders, and I like me some Islanders! I actually didn't think I needed Mark Streit, bought it anyway, and I didn't have it yet, so that balanced out with the Tavares! So, yeah, I still feel good about checkin' out of '13 with these fellers, if that's what it comes to.

I can tell you that I'm pretty sure I know what the first card of 2014 will be, though.

Stay tuned!
