Back in March, I picked up a number of signatures is a wild trading frenzy. Ok....no frenzy, how about a shuffle? No?
Included in the mix was a very nice looking Milt Schmidt card. It was (and still is) the earliest card in terms of player induction that I have in the collection.
The card comes from the very popular Panini Classics Signatures set, one that has a few other representations in my project.
So when I saw this "upgrade" (I use quotes only because both cards really are fantastic) I decided to trade for it. I like having some variety in the design and product releases.
(Inducted in 1961)
The signature is outstanding. A definite eye-catcher. Lots of white space for Milt to nicely scribe his name. Not too shabby of a photo either although he does have that eye of "What are you doing here?".
The Private Signings multi-product release was a definite fave of mine when it came out. Such a robust checklist, hard-signed and my guy has two cards in it. A Montreal version and a Vancouver...both are SSP's. I still need the Canucks version.
Anyways, back to Milt. Awesome card...thrilled to add it to the collection. Now I have another double.
Anyone wanna trade?
