Getting something out there for the masses to read

Yep, it's been a while.  So much has happened over the past month or so that the blog world has taken a back seat.  I finally decided to take a little time to write, and take a picture of some cards that I purchased off of before I moved south.

The Rogie Vachon was one of my favorite cards growing up; the smiling goalie mask instantly made an impression on me and will always hold a spot as one that I will never forget.  The Dick Redmond?  I just added it as part of the picture...I needed it for the 76-77 OPC set that I'm putting together.

The Gretzky is his first OPC card featuring him as a King.  I was able to purchase this card for under $3 (an absolute steal), and now I'm down to 10 cards to finish that set. 

I have a lot more cards to show off from the last 2 COMC orders that I placed, but I figured I'd just get my feet wet tonight with these three.   As you can see, I don't have a scanner here with me, so I'm reduced to taking pictures with my phone and uploading them.  Hopefully I can get back into a bit of a posting rhythm again, especially since I see that Jim from GCRL has gracefully left the blogosphere (best of luck to you Jim, you will be missed!)

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Always happy to see a post. One week at a time, two weeks at a time, a month at a time, whatever.

  2. Love those old school goalie masks... even if they remind me of Jason Voorhees. Great pickups.

  3. The more I see vintage hockey, the more it makes me want to add a ton to my collection. Hope the move is going well.

  4. 76/77 is one of my top 3 OPC sets... nice additions.
