A couple of cool Islanders pieces were found in the closet recently. I got these from an ebay purchase along with a bunch of other oddball stuff.
This Glenn 'Chico' Resch Hockey Heroes 'Autographed' Stand-Up/Stick-Up Sportrophy figure is pretty cool if I do say so myself. It measures about 8 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches and is made of a nice thick sturdy cardboard.
Licensed by the NHL and NHLPA and released in 1975, these figures have a perforated outline and can be removed and placed in the base (upper left) or can be stuck to you wall (the adhesive on the back is still there....but doubtful it would work very well.
The old school fibreglass mask sucked me right in and put the lot of oddball stuff over the top in the 'want it' pile.
When I received the box, I was happy to find a second figure.
Bryan Trottier....no slouch.
Now I haven't been able to get much info on these items. I know that there are 5 (I think) Islander stand-ups, 5 Philadelphia Flyers 'World Champion' stand-ups and I've also seen a Bobby Orr one.
I'm surprised how cheap you can find these for. Just a few bucks on ebay and these can be yours apparently.
These ones are staying in the collection for a little while still. Part of me wants to set them up to see what they are like.
