TOP 60 CARDS (Part 6) - #35-31

I've kinda had a hockey card blogging hangover after that last post. That box break/review took me a good 3 hours in total and to be honest I've been in no mood lately to post anything. But, now I'm back at it and better than ever. Here's another top 60 for ya.

#35 - 1991-92 UD Ed Belfour (All Rookie Team) (#39)

This has always been a neat card for me, I love Belfour and I think it's cool how UD got him a jersey and threw him in a cheesy photoshoot. 

#34 - 1992-93 UD Mario Lemieux (Conn Smythe Trophy Winner) (#436)

One of the best players to ever hit the ice lifting the Stanley Cup? Of course it's in my top 60. Don't know if there are many Lemieux haters out there, but their shouldn't be. Love the pic.

#33 - 1992-93 UD Patrick Roy (#149)

I've showcased this card before and this was an auto pick when it came to my top 60. If you want to read more of what I wrote about this card click here. 

#32 - 2005-06 UD Todd Bertuzzi (#189)

I apologize for the cut off scan but this card is easily one of the most recognizable in my collection. This card brings back the best (and only the best) of memories from the Vancouver Express times. Big Bert was such a dominant force when paired with Nazzy. I can only look back and sigh... Bertuzzi had this contagious smile that infected whoever was watching when he scored. Back in the time, he was the hockey player I modelled myself after. Strong, tough (note his teeth), good hands and a fairly decent shot. Even today I model my game to his OLD game. Hard on the puck and willing to stand up for his linemate(s). 

In addition, when this happened (which was horrific to watch - again) it was my sisters first ever hockey game - go figure.

#31 - 1998-99 Black Diamond Mattius Ohlund (RC /1000) (#87)

I thought/hoped Ohlund would spend his entire career in Vancouver as he was one of my favourite d-men for the Canucks back in the day. His RC is one of my favourites and numbered to /1000. Just really like this card.

On another note, while flipping through fights I found this and it made me happy :)
