7 Day Trading Card Challenge Day 5:Favorite Hockey Card

My buddy Tim over at Cardpocalypse, has created a 7 day Trading Card Challenge which has taken the blogosphere by storm.

There is a good variety of topics to cover throughout the challenge so are you up for the challenge? I am.

So let's take a look at Day 5 of the challenge.One of my least favorite sports and sports to collect is hockey. Even though someday I would love a Mario, Wayne rookie and autograph of each player. I have so far done really well with trading off a good chunk of my hockey cards but there are some that I won't ever let go of despite not collecting the sport.

Most of those cards come from a Panini product called Classics which was released in 2012-2013. I busted about two boxes of the product and even pulled an Sp autograph somewhere in my collection. I was going to show that one off but can't remember where I put it.

So just for an example, I grabbed one of those cards which was my favorite of the group in this Red Kelly. Great photograph, signature and design of this card. Also, notice the on-card autograph appeal.

Card back also looks great including player stats and a small write up.

That does it for Day 5. Only two days left including a non sport one I suggest you come back for tomorrow.

  4. I know very little about hockey, and have never heard of Red Kelly, but I do know a good looking card when I see one, and that sir, is one good looking card!

    1. I can’t tell you much about him either as I don’t collect hockey myself besides the Spx stuff of the 90s. But it’s a pretty cool card
