Kick Up Your Feet

Here's another look inside my recent collecting habits.

I've found that there has been a fair share of hockey cards featuring guys warming up on the bench over the years - especially stretching out on their skates along the boards.

I really only started this collection a few months ago a la the half dozen cards that I currently have.

I think I mentioned in one of my previous blog posts about how I wanted to start a routine of doing some actual stretching out in the morning. Update: That never did happen! I've never been to a chiropractor or even a masseuse in my life, but being "shifted" in some professional way seems like a dream. I really don't know what's stopping me.

Anyway I still want to do it - I just need actually to DO IT. It can't be that hard, right. Can it be just a YouTube video away and we start from there maybe.

I love arena shots - here's one of BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. Alright, just Googled a little about it; apparently the 6th biggest arena, capacity wise, in the NHL. 2nd lowest attendance last season!

The BBT&T Center can hold 19,250 people, the largest arena I've attended to see a professional hockey game - 6,287! Haha I need to get out of this place more to see hockey games. Chicago's arena has an average attendance of 22,734 fans! Montreal with an average of 21,046! My head would probably explode if I walked into either of those places.

I had to Google if Dion Phaneuf was still playing. Looks like he is an unrestricted free agent.

Keep an eye out for me?


Giving A Hand To Lifting Lord Stanley

I was checking out the scheduled hockey card set releases for the 2019-20 season and noticed that Panini has yet to come out and announce production of their lone annual contribution to the hockey market with their sticker set and album. In the past, the release has dropped around mid-September so time is ticking and my expectations are beginning to dwindle.

I haven't attended any card shows lately but here are a few I picked up at local markets for my Lifting Lord Stanley personal collection. Scouring through binders and monster boxes for cards that fit the bill has made collecting a little more exciting.

Lemieux's first Cup. One of my favorite cards from 1991-92 Pro Set; the team photo card that follows this card in the set is also a memorable one.

Lemieux's second Cup.

It's tough to find anyone selling off their 90s cards... I figure most dealers don't feel like it's worth the weight, hauling boxes of junk wax around and all. And those who are selling their abandoned childhood hockey card collections via the online marketplace are delusional when it comes to value. I'm just trying to collect for the fun of it!


I Bought A Card!

I bought a card today and it felt great.

Love this set! Just a few more to pick up and I’ll finally have them all, it’s only taken 22 years and counting.
