#200: THE GOALIE PROJECT (Updates P-Z) + C4K Announcements!

Months ago I started updating all the goalies in my Goalie Project to get my ongoing list up to date with my current collection. Today I'm finally going to finish that update and get the entire list to par with what's in my binders.

First though, are the rules of the project, what three cards I'm collecting in particular:

1. Rookie card
2. Card in a Canucks jersey
3. Card in another teams jersey

So without further a due, lets get through this in alphabetical order. Starting with...


Yes I am aware I spelt Schwab wrong on the little paper card on the left but I am human you know! Schwab wasn't a huge time goalie in Vancouver but at least I'm close to completing him with 2/3 of his cards collected (RC in the Devils uni and the card in another teams jersey on the right). 


"Suitcase" is a different story. Both of the cards I own of his fall under one lone category and that would be of him in a Canucks jersey. So I still have some digging to do with him.


A couple of Snow's rookies are on this page along with a variety of base and parallels of Snow in Canucks gear. I love the different designs the early 2000's had. It's neat looking back at them and comparing them to the sleek and cool designs of today. 

On this second page of Garth Snow are again cards of him with the Canucks but also feature Snow in Pens gear and as well sporting the Islanders colours. That means Snow can be checked off of the list at a perfect 3 for 3!


Just a simple 1/3 here. No rookie of Weeks yet nor do I have a card of his in anything but a Canucks jersey. Some work to be done here...


These two pages of Kay show a wide variety of sets from the 90's junk wax era. Your typical stuff like Pinnacle, Donruss, Series 1 etc. Included is a perfect 3/3. Whitmore is in the books!


No rookie/Canucks cards here.

Aaaaaannnnddddd now some statistics for my own amusement:

Rookies Collected: 27/51 (53%)
Canucks Collected: 33/51 (65%)
Non-Canucks Collected: 28/46 (61%)


So with these stats I'm about over half way done with the project. I have some older and tougher finds left to dig out but I'm up for the challenge. 

If you can help with my want list let me know and I'd be glad to work out a trade with you!

Now for some C4K Annoucements:

1. I have stopped my Cody Hodgson PC. As much as I love the guy and I think he's gonna turn out to be a wicked player, I've made no progress since starting my Cloutier PC. Therefore, I've wiped it off the "to do" list. His cards are at their prime right now and I just don't have the resources to collect him at the moment. 

2. I've added "C4K Collection Totals" where the link to C4K Hodgson use to be. That will be an up to date running list of my collection as I valuate it by means of Beckett. Helps keep me organized and you informed on how our collections are growing together.

3. Don't talk about fight club...wait...that's not it...this is Collecting For Kicks 200th post!



  1. A few of the cards are going to be tough to find. My Canuck project is every RC for every player that's played for the Canucks, so I knew some of these off the top of my head were going to be hard to find.

    Murray Bannerman only played 20 minutes as a Canuck - unlikely to have a Canuck card.
    Bruce Bullock has no cards issued
    Frank Caprice has no official cards - just team issued and minor league BUT he does appear on a Brodeur card. 87-88 OPC 257
    Jacques Caron has no Canuck cards - just a team issued postcard
    Ed Dyck only has 1 team issued postcard
    Ken Ellactot is the same as Dyck
    George Gardner has no none Canuck card other than some team issue/food issues
    Rick Heinz has no cards issued
    Ken Lockett has no official cards - just team issued and food issued stuff
    Bob Mason has no NHL cards until 2004-05 ITG Franchises - prior to that all team issued/stickers etc. The RC if you want to call it that is with Washington
    Dave McClelland has no cards
    Steve McKichan has 1 minor league card
    Maxime Ouellet has no Canuck card
    Andrew Raycroft - not sure if he has any Canuck card
    Curt Ridley - not sure if he has any non Canuck cards - only played 5 games for NHL teams that weren't the Canucks
    Corey Schwab - not sure if he was ever on a Canuck card
    Wendell Young - no Canuck card other than a team issue

    1. Wow that is super helpful thanks so much for that!

  2. What a cool project. I might be able to help you with a few cards. I will have a look through my hockey boxes.

    Goalie cards are a nice way to collect.

    Chucks Used Cards
