If you don't mind, we'll use this jersey swatch card of Atlanta goalie prospect Ondrej Pavelec to introduce Threads, one of Hound Central 5.0's 2009-10 hockey-hounding projects.
Over the years, we've amassed a mountain of memorabilia cards. Along the way, we've had our share of luck. But, like most collectors, we've pulled nothing more than common single-swatch pieces. They're nice, but not that memorable.
Rather than keep them slabbed in a dark box, why not put some to good use? That, my friends, is the theory behind the project -- seeding jersey cards into the hounding stock. Pavelec, who traveled to Hockey Bay to play the Bolts on Friday night, was the first to sign one.
