September Collector of The Month

Introduction

My name is Aaron from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I have been collecting hockey cards since I was 12 years old, and my favourite team is the Toronto Maple Leafs and my favourite player is Jhonas Enroth. Thanks for the feature in your newsletter, CnC!

What/Who Do You Collect?

Great question! I’ve always been a big fan of the goalies, and have always tried to pick up cards of goalies I liked to watch on TV. The largest collection I have is of former Buffalo Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth, which I have been working on since 2010-2011.

Why Did You Start Collecting The Player/Set/Team?

I started collecting Enroth because, as a smaller goaltender myself, I have always appreciated Jhonas’ ability to play at the highest level of hockey for a long time. His technical ability on the ice is something I’ve enjoyed watching for many years now, and continue to do so today. I remember watching his first NHL win many years ago against the Maple Leafs and just being amazed the whole game at how he handled himself in the net.

Ever since then I wanted to try and collect as many cards as I could of the Swedish goaltender. By my count, as I write this, I currently have over 300 Enroth cards in my collection (Along with 28 1/1’s).

What’s Your Favourite Item?

Oh man, what a tough question. It’s so hard to pick just one thing. As I mentioned earlier, there are 28 1/1’s currently in my collection. Any of those could be considered my favourite just by their scarcity alone, to be honest. Along the way, there have also been many non-1/1’s that have great stories to tell, which make them some of my favourite cards to date. However, if I had to choose just one card, I would say my favourite piece would have to be the 09-10 Upper Deck Ice Premiere Auto Patch /10. The card from top to bottom is just beautiful I think. Plus it took me quite a few years after the initial release to land one of them. I eventually found a collector who hoarded a huge number of Ice Premiere’s from 2009-10 and was somehow able to wrestle one out of his collection.

What’s On Your Current Wantlist?

Haha, if it’s an Enroth card that I don’t have (and it’s a lot of them), then it’s on the want list. There are many cards that still have not found its way into my collection yet, so the chase will have to keep on going. If I were to summarize some of my top wants that I would love to acquire, they would be listed as followed:

o 2009-10 Artifacts Black Rookie #179 Jhonas Enroth /5
o 2010-11 ITG BTP Masked Men Gold #MM-26 Jhonas Enroth /10
o 2010-11 Score French Backs #95 Jhonas Enroth
o 2011-12 Prime Premier Game Patches #38 Jhonas Enroth /3
o 2014-14 Upper Deck MVP Gold Script #80 Jhonas Enroth /100
o Any 1/1 card, Printing Plates, Show, Expo, Vault Stamp, Proof Cards, etc.
