Nice work, I really enjoyed listening Sal! You’ve got me motivated to go find a blaster of O-Pee-Chee Platinum now!
I love that you touched on the ’89-90 Topps/O-Pee-Chee set as well. This was the first set I ever collected as a kid, my Dad used to bring packs home for my brothers and I after work, and we’d sort all our cards into our cheap three ring binders by team. For that reason it will always have a special place in my mind. I actually have at least one, maybe two, vending CASES of the O-Pee-Chee set that were passed down to me by my Dad. If anyone needs any of these cards, which I seriously doubt, look me up!
I really enjoyed listening the podcast. It’s really awesome to have a sportcard show dedicated to hockey card! I started collecting with the 88-89 OPC set, so I have found memories collecting the classic 89-90 OPC set. For some reasons, I always thought that the design on the side of the card was marble (instead of ice!). Keep up the good work – I’m already a fan of the show!
Hmmm….maybe it was meant to be marble. I just assumed it was ice when I was a kid, and never thought too hard about it since 🙂 Thanks for listening!
Finally got around to listening. I am a podcast junkie so a podcast about hockey cards doesn’t have to be very good for me to love it. what I am saying is my opinion here is irrelevant as I would love just about anything. my one suggestion is to get on itunes so that people can subscribe and download to their podcast apps. it will definitely increase your visibility.
