Nothing today for the 21 players with today as their birthdate.
I feel shame.
On the other hand, it gives me an opportunity to share another item from my vault.
Now Kevin over at Kev...Kaberle...Cards, a new blog, http://mostlyhockeysportscards.wordpress.com/
shared a weird find from his Tomas Kaberle collection. I was going to write about this set anyway, so I guess this is a good a time as any.
Toronto Maple Leafs 2002/03 Medallion Collection
In conjunction with The Toronto Sun newspaper, this promotion started on Sunday Feb 9. In that issue, you could get a free Toronto Maple Leafs Medallion Album.
Starting Feb 10 and running to March 5, you could collect 24 medallions. This would cost you $2.59 plus taxes and coupon from the paper. Paper in Toronto was $0.50. This was also limited to while supplies last.

Inside back page where you could insert medallion.
Now each days coupon had an image of the medallion of the day. They weren't in any order that I could discern. So my scans will be in alphabetical order.

There we have all 28 medallions and album now for your viewing pleasure. Check back later for more promotions like this that were run in other years.
Looking at these and I didn't remember that some of these guys were Leafs.
