As I mentioned before, he sent me a card to replace my half destroyed Hodge. Let's compare the two:
Excuse my scanning abilities but it's clear to see that the first card is in wayyyyy better shape then the latter. But this biggest difference is on the back!
Now that is a sigh of relief!! That is a huge improvement, thank you!
Next we will move on to our next goalie - George Gardner. This is a really big help toward my goalie project and with these next two cards we are killing two birds with...well...I guess two stones, but it's still really good!
When I think of 70's hockey cards I think of these circular, pink backgrounded cards. Love the old school jersey's we're seeing too!
I'm a big fan of the cards that actually show goalies in their vintage pads. It really makes you appreciate the advancement in technology we've had in the past decades! These two cards really add a nice vintage feel to my Goalie Project!
Gary Smith is known as the pioneer of Canucks tenders. He was the first goalie to really breakout in Canucks gear and has one of the most famous nicknames...
This is my favourite part of the Smith card by far! I'm always a fan of the little caricatures on the back of old cards (and personally I think they should be brought back) but this one is definitely the best one I've seen!
And the big surprise is...
Wow! This is an awesome surprise! A card from the 60's! This is definitely the oldest card in my collection by about 5 years! Charlie Hodge in Canadiens gear ta boot! I was stoked when I saw this card, thanks sooooo much!
The back makes this card even better, it still has the blank trivia puck thingy. There's no way I'm scratching this card no matter how tempting it is.
Thanks so much 1967er!! Check your mailbox soon!
