On Thursday 11 June 2015: Got a lone PWE from an unexpected source. A PWE from Jeff at 2x3 Heroes. Jeff packs his PWEs by putting the cards in plastic 3 pocket rows that were cut from 9 pocket plastic sheets. He puts 3 to 4 cards per pocket. This envelope had 3 cut rows, the postage was two forever stamps. The PWE survived it was pressed some but was not damaged.

Some days ago Jeff announced on his blog that he had some Hockey cards sorted by team ready to ship out in a thinning the herd type of cleaning and all you had to do was comment with your team. I noticed there was someone ahead of me who had claimed the Caps. I left a message about someone already claiming the Caps the only team I collect and Oh Well. I didn't think I would get anything... WRONG. Either Jeff had a ton of Caps or he divided what he had up. Anyway most are common base that range in year from 1989-90 to 2014-15 there are 26 cards all together ALL: "There are 26 cards."

Friday 30 August 2013:
Got a card from Panini from an EXPIRED Redemption. In a group break in early July (got my cards on 09 July 2013) I had gotten a redemption card that had expired 06 January 2013. Figured at the least they would tell me it was expired and not send anything, but they did they actually sent what was promised. So the card I received about 2 months later was:
2010-11 (copyrighted 2011) Panini Zenith Hockey 188 Marcus Johansson Capitals on card auto blue sharpie #d 843/999
