The start of a new collection?

A while back there was a comment about cards showing players raising the Stanley Cup. Within a short time, I tracked down a great looking card of Lanny McDonald hoisting the cherished trophy.

Since that time, I have been thinking of starting a little side collection of players who are raising the Stanley Cup. Here's what I found at the card show I went to last weekend.

Ray Bourque

Dave Andreychuk

What I really like about these cards is that it captures a very specific moment in time - and a darn important one at that. The moment that every player work for and dreams of. I'm surprised they haven't come out with a full set of these yet.

Not a bad start at all. I'm going to keep on the lookout and post my future findings.

I think it's a great idea for a simple collection that's outside the box of player or set collecting.

Current collection - 3 cards


  1. "Give me one...moment in time...when I'm more than I thought I would beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"

  2. Nice idea for a mini-collection!

    Also, I really enjoy the custom cards you posted a bit back.

    I recently found your blog after starting my own hockey card blog and looking for others to follow/add to my blogroll.

    Good stuff!

  3. Hey Casey,

    Glad you are enjoying the cards.

    I was really busy over the holiday season and have fallen far behind on the customs.

    I feel like I am going to have to abandon them for the season.

    Maybe they will make a return for the playoffs or something.

    I'd love it if you could add me to your blogroll.

    I'd be interested in checking out your blog as well.

  4. If you get the chance, my blog is at

    What do you collect as I have a bunch of things I'm always willing to trade.

  5. As you have probably guessed, I am a Trevor Linden collector. I also enjoy goalie mask stuff and have a coule other small projects on the go.

    I'll check out your blog when I get a chance.
