You know it is funny. I never knew that these could be bought at the store. I always just assumed that they were a mail in item only. But yes that stamp means a lot for me as well. I live in Nova Scotia. Only about 60 miles from this store. But yet I bought this album more the 3000 miles away in Alberta.So after a long journey it has made its way back home. Well close to home.Thanks.

Good News: I picked up this '51 Parkhurst Ted Lindsay HOF RC!
Bad News: I discovered some mistakes on my wantlist and had to add back on about ten cards that for some reason I had marked off Now 1/2 way completed at 53 have and 52 need.

Nice pick ups, Frank.

That Plante pic brings back memories of the pics I seen of Sawchuk.

Man, Sawchuk was awesome. And what a mug!

I believe the Plante picture was from the game in '59 where a puck broke his nose and he went to the locker room, grabbed a mask he used in practice, and wore it onto the ice. Although there had been a few leather fittings here and there over the year, it was essentially the birth of the mask in pro hockey. If I remember it correctly....

Not to get too nitpicking.... but the sport that is actually portrayed on that trade card is ice polo, not hockey. Originating in the US and somewhat popular in the late-1880s to approx just after the turn of the century, the sport was played on ice like hockey, but usually with a metal ball instead of a puck, and with short curved "polo" sticks - designed to be held with one hand and swung - similar to the movement of a polo player on horseback.

The game also included a variant played on hard surfaces with roller skates.
The sport slowly vanished in favour of the more popular game of ice hockey...

Just back from PSA. Razor sharp corners and edges but a few small surface issues take it down to a PSA 2. Can't complain about this one as they are impossible to find and when you do they are in bad shape. Happy to add it to the PC.

Great looking cards, guys.

Hard to believe that Orr got a 2, Tomi, but regardless of the grade, I'd be pumped to add that one to my collection!

Got this super underrated gem in today, Sidney Crosby's Fleer Ultra Gold Medallion RC:







These were ridiculously tough to pull back in the day. The Gold Medallion versions of the short printed rookie cards only fell about one per case, and there were 21 different SP rookies. You can do the math on that and see how many cases it would take to pull one Crosby

Absolutely thrilled to add this to my collection. I know the Young Gun is far more popular but I think this card looks many times nicer - the gold of the card really compliments the Penguins colors perfectly, and it's one of the only Crosby rookies with an action shot featuring the black home jersey - and it is considerably more rare. Only a few hundred graded! I think it's time in the spotlight will come someday.

Now to try and acquire an Ovechkin to match

Nice card, Kevin.

I was watching the regular or base version of this card but never pulled the trigger on a couple that I am regretting now.

I did, however, pick up a retail box but haven't cracked it open yet.

With other Crosby RC's in UD, Parkhurst, McDonald's and Beehive, I'm in no hurry I guess but I likely will at some point this year?

1958-59 Parkhurst #49 HOF Doug Harvey leaves me needing just one more card for my set!

What is most surprising about this card:
a) I actually won a Greg Morris listing?
2) purchase price $2.52

Sounds similar to Bandy which is still played today

Yeah, those are spiffy.

Clarke looks soooo innocent.

I attended the "Philly" baseball card show this past weekend. Dealer had these New York American cards in a binder for $100. Negotiations netted me the hockey cards and a needed baseball card for the asking price so about five bucks each for the matchbooks which I thought was a good price (even though I don't really collect them).
