SDM repacks

Picked up six of these repacks from Shoppers Drug Mart. They are distributed by Grosnor Distribution Inc. Took all the 15/16 UD S2 packs and left the rest. ( Score, OPC )


Here's four of the six unopened packs. These were $1.29 each.







Got a YG but not an Eichel I guess the OPC Marquee Rookie will have to suffice. A fun little break during these times. Going to check some others to see if they have any.

Mailday from Georgia

I recently participated in The Big Fun Game over at Johnny's Trading Spot and received my winnings this week. Behold, some nice older baseball cards to add to my expanding collection.




He also added this bonus card to the envelope.


I'm guessing since my blogger name and blog reference hockey as my main focus, this got it into the right hands. Definetely an upgrade on the one I have. Thanks again Johnny. Looking forwaerd to playing again this month.

Buchberger vs Sanipass 1-16- 89

Hello everyone. I'm back with another fight photo from my collection. This one from Jan 16, 1989 when the Edmonton Oilers and Chicago Blackhawks tied 2-2. It's kind of neat that you can pinpoint about when the photo was taken. Penalties 5 min each for fighting at 8:28 of the first period.

 

Box score here

Can't find any video so the photo will have to suffice.
