First lets look at some Goalie Project stuff!
These two team cards contain 4 Canucks goalies. On the North Stars card is Gary Smith. On the other is Curt Ridley, Cesare Maniago and Bruce Bullock. Also, this is the only card that contains Bruce Bullock in Canucks gear, since he has no issued cards.
Although I already have that Ridley RC, I don't have the other three around him. That Bromley has been on my want list for a LONG TIME, so I have to thank Dave for reading my mind on that one. A couple more Maniago cards to add to the Goalie Project (sweeeeet).
This 9 card sheet of Canucks cards feature some iconic sets of the 70's. Especially that blue bordered 1979-80 Topps set. Some great Canucks names included too, such as Snepsts, Lever and Gradin. Oh and don't forget those jerseys! The flying V contrasted by the Stick in the Rink, don't get much more vintage than that!
Some more Canucks cards include a neat Play-Off matchup card between the Habs and Nucks. Plus there's that beauty of a headshot of Pat Quinn, one of the most memorable Canucks coaches of all time!
These last five cards are randoms of all different goalies. Including Gerry Cheevers and my first Colorado Rockies hockey cards!
To finish up, we have my favourite part about old hockey cards, the cartoons on the back!
Who new that Harold Snepsts played tennis, nonetheless win a tennis tournament! Now you know, eh Brett?
Another wacky fact, actually more like painful fact. Chris Oddleifson broke his jaw not once, twice, no not even three times, but four! I can't imagine how painful that would be!
Well that's it for tonight folks I have to give a huge shout out to Dave for the great little package he put together. Thanks Dave!
