Birthday Hockey Cards!

So for my birthday, my good friend, Marie, got me a box of hockey cards with two storage cases. I didn't realize that had I made it easy for her when I told her my interest in cards. =P But, I'm writing this post because I realized that I really didn't know the protocol of hockey cards. Here I was with this unopened box wondering what to do. I couldn't wait; I HAD to dive right in. So before I went to bed, I tore through about half the packs and wanted to share with the readers of what I've found so far in this treasure trove from the 1990-1991 season.


So here is what the outside of the box looks like.



Here are the empty packs strewn about my desk.

Yes, that's me being anal and cutting open each pack with scissors


I got a Gretzky card to match the outside of the box!



Here are some of the goodies I've found so far

Mats Sundin looks like he could have played Rolfe in the The Sound of Music

That seriously looks like a watercolor of him and not a photo


Steve Yzerman!

Stay tuned for more choice cards from when I finish going through the box!
