I was able to land my first autograph of Ducks' second-line center and all-around awesome guy Saku Koivu a while back, and - shockingly, I know - it comes from my all-time favorite hockey product, Dominion.Numbered 06/50, it's on-card, which is just fantastic. I was able to get a great deal on the newest addition to my Ducks collection, as the card ran me just $5.26 shipped. What really shocked me though, as the title alludes to, is that a redemption for the card sold a day or so after I won my copy, and it ended at over $18. That legitimately makes less than zero sense. Why would somebody pay almost three times as much for a redemption of a card that has already gone live and can be had in-hand? I mean, I've bought and traded for redemptions before, but not if I had the chance at the actual card, and certainly not if I had to pay significantly more money for just the "rights" to the card.Anyways, I'm hoping Saku returns next year to anchor what will hopefu...
