Default Stan Mikita passed away

Today at age 78. Sad news, he'll be missed by many.

Does anyone have any neat Stan Mikita cards or memorabilia to share for the forum?

Loved Mikita growing up, even as a Rangers fan. Here’s my favorite card of him

72-73 OPC Stan Mikita. I was a big Black Hawks fan when I was much younger and Stan was definitely one of my favorite players growing up.
RIP Stan.

Not to be morbid but I figured I'd best grab this yesterday while it was still on sale:

Default I had no knowledge of Stan's passing until I noticed the thread

I had no knowledge of Stan's passing until I noticed the thread. I have much to say about this great player, teammate, husband, dad, hero to many, but I have to scoot for work. Suffice to say I am very sad.

Stan was part of my childhood growing up in the suburbs of Chicago---watching him play on WGN-TV Channel 9 with the great Lloyd Pettit calling the action. I was privileged to see 3 Black Hawk home games during the mid-late 60s, and Stan Mikita was full of action all the time in those games.

May God rest his soul, and comfort his grieving wife Jill, their children, teammates, and Stan's many fans. I can't write any more.....

----Brian Powell

PS---I'll see if my son can help me load up my Topps 1967-68 Stan Mikita SGC 96 MINT.
