It’s Shark Week — the time when everyone puts aside their differences and agrees on one thing: sharks are awesome! To celebrate, I’ve combed through my collection and found five hockey cards that any shark-lover would appreciate.
When Hayward wore his mask, he looked like some poor schlub getting swallowed by a shark. He must have felt like one too, posting 4.92 and 5.55 goals-allowed averages and a 3-18-1 record, in his two seasons in the Bay.
1991-92 Score Canadian #304 – Shark Attack! – Few things could be more shark-tacular than the San Jose Sharks logo superimposed above a coral reef and surrounded by a blood-red border. But the back of the card lists the players who were selected by the San Jose Sharks in the 1991 Expansion Draft.
1991-92 Sports Art Images Promos #21 – Pat Falloon – This unlicensed card has an illustration of Pat Falloon and a great white shark. Falloon scored 143 goals and 179 assists in a mediocre, 9-year NHL career. However, the great white seen here ate an impressive 21,927 seals, 6,651 tunas and one underwater camera owned by the Discovery Channel in his 68-year career as a shark.
