Found some cards for todays birthday.
Selected by Montreal Canadiens round 5 #66 overall 1970 NHL Amateur Draft.
Rick Wilson got his first chance to play in the NHL in 1973 at the age of 23 with the Montreal Canadiens. Wilson moved on to the St. Louis Blues, where he played two full seasons. In the first year he suited up for 76 games, scoring two goals and five assists with 83 penalty minutes. He appeared in 65 games in 1975-76, scoring a goal and six assists with 20 minutes in penalties. Wilson's most productive NHL season turned out to be his last, when he spent the 1976-77 season in the Motor City, scoring three goals and 13 assists.
Received these blue ink signed cards TTM.
Yesterday's references to Wayne Gretzky were made pertaining to THE TRADE 23 years ago.

Wow. I'm a Leaf fan but I don't think I'm going to be paying these prices.
