Vintage Haul

A few weeks ago, I picked up 11 vintage hockey cards, but have not had the chance to post them until now. Feast your eyes on these:

Two 1963-64 Topps cards

Unfortunately, the Hadfield has a bit of a tear on the back, and the Kennedy has a stain on the lower right corner. I find it odd that the cards use black and white pictures of other players on the fronts.

Seven 1968-69 O-Pee-Chee cards

These cards are in awesome condition. No stains, creases or flaws. Four sharp corners, too.

I actually built a 1968-69 Topps set, and have been meaning to start piecing together the OPC version.

Two 1969-70 O-Pee-Chee cards

The Angotti has a slight bend–not really a crease. I also have a 1969-70 Topps set, but not the OPC version. However, I don’t like this set as much as its predecessor.

OK, time to brag. I paid $25 for all 11 cards. None of them are of superstars–though Dennis Hull was a 2nd Team All-Star, and I think Dallas Smith was too.

  1. You know, for a baseball guy, you sure like looking at my hockey cards.

    Come…join the Dark Side. It will give you something to do until Spring Training.

  2. What's not to like? Great vintage is great, regardless of the sport and the vintage hockey you put up has a lot of character and great designs. I've bought a little hockey in my day, but nothing like the stuff you're putting up.

    1. I sent Tyler Myers of the Buffalo Sabres and Sidney Crosby of the penguins fan mail over a year ago, and they haven’t reodnsped yet But good luck! (:
