Two Michael Kostka Autograph Cards

I jumped on a group break for cheap recently - they desperately needed participants - which was for four boxes of Panini's 2013-14 Contenders; it turns out it wasn't worth much anyway, because what we got were two sets of identical boxes. I ended up with these two Michael Kostka Rookie Ticket autograph cards (#152 in the set), showing him with the Chicago Blackhawks:
At 28 years old, Kostka might just be coming into his own in the NHL. After having been with the Buffalo Sabres and Florida Panthers but never playing a game with them, he took advantage of the locked-out season to play 35 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs before signing with the Hawks, then getting claimed by the Tampa Bay Lightning off waivers near the end of the season.

He was Tampa's best player in the playoffs, with two assists in three games as they were swept in the first round by the Montréal Canadiens; he signed with the New York Rangers this summer, and should be their seventh defenseman.

One of these is obviously for trade.
