Hockey Card Haul – Part 2: Vintage

Continued from my previous post about all the awesome hockey cards I picked up on November 22. Here’s some vintage, gum-smelling goodness:

Twelve (12) cards from 1973-74 Topps for $8.75. Now I only need 9 more cards and I’ll have the entire 198-card set.

Three (3) cards from the 1972-73 O-Pee-Chee set for $3. I’ve got quite a ways to go before completing this set, though.

1974-75 Topps Denis Potvin RC for onnnnnnneeeeeeeee dollllllllllar!!!!! Yeah, OK…it’s got a slight crease. But did I mention that I got it for onnnnnnneeeeeeeee dollllllllllar?

1974-75 Topps Bobby Orr–the greatest defenseman of all time–for $3. I might have to start putting this set together too.

1960-61 Topps Al Arbour. This card rocks because of its use of primary colors (blue, yellow, red). Plus, Arbor is wearing glasses. Most of you probably remember him better as the longtime coach of the New York Islanders, but he was the last guy to play while wearing glasses. Oh yeah, I paid $5 for this slice of cardboard. Ironic that I paid more for an Arbor card than Orr and Potvin combined.

To be continued…

  1. aw, damn, I'm new enough to this to not have known about the Chicago show, and I LIVE in Chicago. I'll have time to save some $ for the next one at least. great finds…

  2. Next one will be in March. They'll have some hockey guys signing autographs too, but most of them want way too much for a 'graph ($100+).
