I’ve decided that my Hockey collection SUCKS. seriously, it’s sad, and I decided I wanted to start a somewhat respectable and decent Hockey Collection. I made a list of every Hockey Rookie I could possibly want, sticking with Hall of Famers, Future Hall of Famers and Red Wings and it numbered close to 130 Cards.. To start this endeavor I managed to get a great deal on a set of 1990-91 O’Pee Chee Premiere Hockey which had a high number of cards that I wanted from guys like Jagr to Curtis Joesph, I decided to make this the building block of my Hockey Collection. Also you got to start off a collection with a favorite player, it’s kind of a rule of rules, so I added the Captain to my collection, and was thrilled to start off my collection with a nice mint example.
Steve Yzerman – was my favorite player of my childhood, and he’s a legend, bar none. I wore his jersey with pride, and now I have his rookie. Hall of Fame, Class of 2009
