(Card Draft. Go join now!) It's not quite the same as Kevin from The Mojo Beard picking up The Great Eight's Young Guns card for a measly seven dollars, but it is a sweet eBay win nevertheless. I scored this awesome 2005-2006 Fleer Ultra Difference Makers jersey swatch of AO's for a cool $3.25 delivered with free shipping. The seller sent it in a magnetic, which makes the cheap price even better. I'm always game to pick up a magnetic when I can at no extra charge.Yes, it's a relic from a rookie photo shoot, but it still books high for $30 - for whatever that's worth - and is only the second Ovechkin hit of any kind I own. Ovi is my favorite non-Duck, and my collecting Bucket List has both his Young Guns card and an auto of his on it. One day. One day.
