    Landed a card I never thought I would...

    Last year when the National was in Atlantic City, the hotel I stayed at used card keys, like most modern hotels use nowadays. However, that week they had special card keys with images of UD hockey cards on them that you were allowed to keep after checking out. I was given two key cards of rookies, one of Dylan Larkin of the Red Wings and the other of Penguins goalie Matt Murray with a mock autograph. I thought it was pretty cool that since I'm a Pens fan that I got a Murray key card. At that time I had no idea what set it was even from, just that it was /399 and it is auto'd. I eventually found out what set it was from and since that point had been on the look out to find that real card with matching serial numbers, which is 130/399. I never actually thought I would find it, but that I would search it every so often.

    Last Sunday night I decided to search and found a card where it was hard to tell what the serial number was, so I asked the seller. He replied back that it was 130/399!!! I had actually found it!!! After a brief back in forth in negotiations, he accepted my offer.

    Thanks fellas.

    And just to clarify, ALL of the Murray key cards had the same 130/399 serial number. So someone else who also got one of them could've had the same idea as me.
