THANKS KYLE - Dan Cloutier Pick-Up

My Dan Cloutier PC is probably my favourite project at the moment and my friend Kyle from Beware the Hockey Card Closet sent me another card that fits right in.

Awhile back Kyle and I figured we had a few cards the other wanted/needed so we did a little swap. I ended up with a Cloutier card I didn't even know existed!

Clout actually shares the card with three other players from the Sault Sainte-Marie Greyhounds of the OHL.

This is the back of the card:

As shown above Dan shares the back of the card with the best name of the four - Joe Thornton. The front has two guys I've never heard of:

The front is covered over with gold foil and has a paragraph along the left that continues onto the back, you don't see that very often. 

I can't say the design is anything special but the card in whole definitely is. This is a card I had never even seen and it's certainly neat to get my hands on a card this unique. The brand "Classic" must not have had an NHL license because most (if not all) of the cards I own of them are from some sort of junior team. 

This card was also a special card to Kyle from what he told me. Apparently, this was one of his very first hockey cards. I'm honoured that you let me have it Kyle, thank you!

  1. I love that card. Back in the "day" it was being sold for upwards of $75 bucks. Now, not so much but it is still very memorable card for me. I pulled it from a pack. I was excited because Jumbo Joe was on there and I thought he was going to be a great NHL player. We used to get weird channels on TV in Pittsburgh sometimes and one of them would show very poorly recorded OHL games. I used to like watching Bellville and remember them playing the Greyhounds back then. I think he won the OHL equivalent of ROY that year. I still have that card.
