I wouldn't mind seeing more cards like this

In a quick fit of madness while at the LCS last weekend, I picked up 3 packs of 11-12 Score hockey.   I honestly thought that they were this years, but hey there's nothing wrong with any hockey card, even if it's last years.

It was the standard 7 cards per pack, and with the 11-12 set, there was one glossy card in each pack.  For the most part, I really didn't hit anything worth writing home about.  But this one card of Rod Brind'amour really struck a chord with me.

Card #17, the jersey retirement card for Brind'amour was something that I wouldn't mind seeing more of.  I am aware that we don't see many number retirement ceremonies (in Toronto you don't see any), but the shot of Rod watching his jersey rise to the rafters of the PNC Arena is a really good shot. 

Something different every once in a while is always good.  With photos like this one, out of the norm is even better.

thanks for reading, Robert


  1. quite possibly the most perfect card ever

  2. that is a really fantastic card

  3. Wow... awesome card. It'd be pretty cool to have him sign it in person. Could be an excellent conversation piece for you and Rod.

  4. Another card in my fast-developing, I-don't-even-collect-hockey-cards-but-if-I-did set. One of the best I've seen.
