I like that.
The recent card show had me sifting through a couple tables worth of boxes and I managed to find a few diamonds in the rough.
I made the decision to not go overboard and buy stuff for my trade box.....but that didn't last long. Some Masked Men I and II card for .50 cents each killed that goal. I'm a sucker for a good deal.
Looking back I wonder if that was a good deal?? Ha ha.
Anyways, on to one of the cards I found through my hours of digging.
2010/11 Panini Crown Royale
Voices Of The Game
#1 Charlie Simmer
This is a very small collection I have passively been building. Working in the world of television and media I thought it would be fun to go after these cards. Especially when you start the collection off with a legend like Dick Irvin. As my nephew would say....noice.
Charlie used to do color commentary for the local Flames games for a few seasons back before the huge Sportsnet NHL bid. He wasn't too bad to listen to......but I'll admit I like his signature better.
Simmer has a real nice auto and it fills the card out well. He seems to be sporting a Kings jersey in the photo...likely from a night honouring him - or a teammate.
For just a few bucks I'm happy to add it to the meek collection.
Oh.......and in case you were wondering......Bob Cole does have a signature card (or two). It's officially on the radar.
Current Collection - 8 cards
