BMX Anyone?

If, like me, you are a certain age and remember the 80's you'll likely remember how big a deal BMX was for a brief glorious spell. It was everywhere it seemed. It went from 10speeds and cruisers with Banana seats to BMX BMX BMX everywhere. I had one, it was from Canadian Tire. I wanted…

1972 Was 50 years Ago

It was my 50th birthday just a few days back. Hard to believe it but I guess it's much better than the alternative. I was Born in April, I'm not sure exactly when the 1972 O-Pee-Chee set would have been released, but likely after my birthday. That means if I was going to chase all…

Catching The Most Wanted

Well this past week has been pretty good as I managed to knock 2 cards off my top 10 most wanted list. The first to go was Most Wanted #3 1993 O-Pee-Chee Premier – Top Draft Pick Insert #3 Rod Henderson. Extra special thanks to Ron who saw it on my blog and included it…

Ken is Allergic To Wool Uniforms

WHA-Mazing

The WHA lived fast and died young. But left an indelible mark on the hockey world. Blue Pucks, White skates, opening up new markets and forcing the NHL to break the old school lock and embrace some change. WHA cards are a throw back to those days and I love 'em. Can't get enough. Which…

Knocking Off The Most Wanted

To knock a card off the Most Wanted list is always a great day. To be able to knock two off on the same day is a super great day. To knock three off at the same time is pretty amazing. But to knock FOUR cards off the list in the same day is super…

World Series Champs (plus more)

The Blue Jays looked good this year and if they had just snuck into the playoffs then who knows what could have been. I can tell you what did though, back to back wins in the early 90's What else came out in the early 90's? Unique O-Pee-Chee designs. After so many years of just…
