Hockey autographs TTM--Palaeozaic era

I want to take you back to the old days of autograph collecting (the 80's). There were not a lot of cards to be signed as the explosion of the 90's had not yet hit. We kind of knew of team issued items but in the pre-internet days, stuff was hard to find. To help jazz up the plain old index card, I custom created mine. I would cut out the little head shots  (no blind side ones here) of the player, glue them on the index card and send away to the player to sign. Star players had cards but the role players did not. For example, Glen Cochrane. Selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1978 draft, 3rd round, 50th overall. Played 10 NHL seasons,  GP  411   G 17  A 72 TP 89  PIM 1556. He was in the 85/86 and 86/87 Canucks player postcard sets, the 87/88 Blackhawks player postcard set, the Oilers 88/89 player postcard set, the 87/88 Kraft player drawing set and finally in the 02/03 Fleer Throwback set. So without much further ado, for your viewing pleasure, late 80's custom Glen Cochrane.
