Found March 17, 2014 on Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
PLAYERS: Ryan Getzlaf
TEAMS: Anaheim Ducks
I picked up a phenomenal lot of three Ryan Getzlaf patches on eBay (from three auctions) a while back from a seller with a penchant for listing fantastic cards of the Anaheim Ducks' Captain. Each card ran me roughly half a blaster and all three are excellent new additions to my Getzy Collection.First, an early hit of The Captain out of 2005-2006 In The Game Heroes and Prospects Series 2. This two-color sweater piece that features some nice stitching is part of the nameplate off of Getz's back. It was taken from the sweater Ryan donned in the 2003 CHL Top Prospects game and is the Silver Version /20.The second hit also features a piece of a Getzy sweater from 2003, except this time it comes from the sweater he wore in the 2003 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects contest. The card itself hails from 2009-2010 ITG Heroes and Prospects and is the Jumbo Number Black parallel, which is limited to just 6 copies. It has tons of stitching and three brilliant and very #MERICA colors.Th...

The Perfect Numbering For a Getzlaf.

I immediately knew I had to own the below card when I saw it available on eBay. Aside from the fact that it's a Ryan Getzlaf hit I didn't have, it also happened to bring a sick patch and the perfect numbering to the table.Numbered 15/15 (so much win), that Getzy patch piece is just fantastic. Three-colors, two different colors of stitching, and lots of possibilities. It could...

Anaheim Tops Kings 2-1

It never gets old defeating the Kings.  As a Ducks fan, any victory over Los Angeles is a sweet one.  In their building?  Even better!  Despite playing in the second of back-to-back games, Anaheim looked like the better rested team in a 2-1 victory on Saturday night at Staples Center. Frederik Andersen got the start in net, as Jonas Hiller played the night before in Colorado...

Ducks take a bounce-back victory from the Kings

The Ducks hammered out a bruising 2-1 victory over the rival Kings on Saturday night at Staples Center, one night after running and gunning their way to a 6-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Denver. Two games, two very different styles of play and two solid results. Crisis averted? Order restored? The Ducks certainly believed so after consecutive victories put a halt to a...

2 by 3 Heroes Sends Another Sweet PWE.

I received a really cool PWE from my good buddy Jeff at 2 by 3 Heroes.The Hometown Heroes Bison is the only new Kemp in the above scan, but the other two are just so aesthetically-pleasing that I had to scan them in.Jeff also sent along a new Ryan Getzlaf and a new Bobby Ryan. Bobby rocking that mustache is just hilarious, and it also tells me the photo comes from a November game...
