As I mentioned last week, I am now trying to build a set of 1957-58 Topps Hockey. Here are 3 cards that bring me closer to completing the 66-card set:
#18 – Leo Boivin – Boston Bruins – Boivin played 18 seasons in the NHL, and was a member of the inaugural Pittsburgh Penguins team in 1967-68. The next season, he would play on the Minnesota North Stars with this guy…
#27 – Elmer “Moose” Vasko – Standing at 6’2″, Vasko was a large defenseman back in the day. He was a member of the Blackhawks team that won the Stanley Cup in 1961. Interestingly, he was once fined $100 by the North Stars for not playing aggressively enough.
#29 – Ron Murphy – Chicago Blackhawks – Murphy played in the NHL for 18 seasons, and was also a member of the ’61 Cup-winning ‘Hawks team.
10 out of 66 cards = 15%
