Default A Nice Hockey Tin from Walmart for my daughter and I.

Have never collected Hockey but I know there is a big fan base and they sell well so I am going to start buying some here and there. Main reason I bought a 2017-18 UD Series 1 is because my daughter liked the tin and wanted me to get it. A late night trip to Walmart resulted in a couple decent hits. Of course had to look them up on ebay to figure that out

2 decent hits:
1. Nico Hischier Young Guns #201
2. Charlie McAvoy Young Guns UD Canvas #C105

Not bad for retail I don't think. Might get the other tin next time if it is still there or should I be thankful for these hits? Like I said not familiar with Hockey cards.

Thank you! Funny thing is when you are opening cards you know nothing about you don't know whether to get excited or not I was just looking for the guy on the front of the tin or something that looked special!

Yes, that’s an awesome tin. Congrats. I remember when I was a kid taking night runs hoping to grab cards or comics. We didn’t do it often, but we called it chasing checkers. Just something between my father and I. This was when cards and comics could be had at even the grocery store.

Yeah it is memories like that I want her to have. She is interested in everything I do like fishing, hunting, sports so it isn't surprising she likes cards. She saw me sorting through all mine and said she wanted to collect them as well and so now it starts. LOL. She is already asking for cards for her birthday and that isn't until November

Yeah I was happy after I looked them up. There were no blasters or hangers of the series 1 hockey there but there is one tin left. Should I get it or don't press my luck??
