Sutter & Wilson

Growing up watching the NHL in the 80's a lot of my focus was on the Norris Division. From 1982 right through to 1996 the Norris contained the Leafs. As a Toronto area fan they were on the TV the most so we got to see a lot of the other teams in the division.…

The Great Sticker Back Debate

I saw a debate going around on the blogs and forums about what to do about sticker backs in your collection and how they relate to variations. Here's the issue in a nutshell. On the back of the 1989 O-Pee-Chee Baseball (among others) there is a separate collectible Superstar photo as below.   However the…

3 for 1972

Just a short post today as I am procrastinating about going outside to do yard work. These 3 cards are from the 1972-73 set. Which means they came out in the fall of 1972. Which means AFTER my birthdate of April 1972. Which means..this is the first set I COULD have TECHNICALLY collected during my…

Raiders Of The Lost Ark

Calling Dick Tracy

So, does anyone really want to admit to watching Dick Tracy when it came out? I mean the cross promotional tie-ins were everywhere in 1990 so I can understand you might have seen it. It had Warren Beatty, Madonna and Al Pacino for gosh sakes. I hated it personally and I just can't understand how…
