2005 H&P - Matt Kassian

2019 UD - Anthony Cirelli

Thursday, 16 September 2021

1990 Pro Set - Todd Krygier
2020 UD - Michal Kempny

2001 Crown Royale - Paul Kariya - Still more of these die-cuts.
2020 MVP - Keith Yandle
2015 Platinum - Steven Stamkos
2014 UD Game Jersey - Matt Moulson - Another hit! While I like the somewhat less common yellow colour, I could have done without the photo of those forgettable jerseys.

1992 Score - Mark Hunter
2019 UD - Philipp Grubauer
1990 Pro Set - Ron Francis

1997 Crown - Igor Larionov
2012 H&P - Jari Kurri - The final of the H&P Heroes cards in this. Probably my favourite of them, for the jersey.

2015 Ice - Luc Robitaille - Acetateness!
1990 Pro Set - Dave Tippett
1991 Parkhurst - Petr Svoboda - 2/14, but a dupe.
2017 UD - Travis Hamonic
1994 SP - Alexei Zhitnik
2005 H&P - Marc-Andre Cliche - I'd call the Maineiacs another fave CHL jerseys, but they're defunct since 2011.

1994 Select - Donald Audette
2018 UD - Derek MacKenzie
1991 Platinum - Craig Billington
2008 BTP - George Gardner - I've pulled this before, but Vancouver Blazers WHA content is worthy of a scan.
2017 Compendium - Dean Kukan - Here's this one's player I'd never heard of. His only solo NHL cards were from Compendium.
2017 Leafs Centennial - Vincent Damphousse
1991 UD - Sergei Krivokrasov
2019 UD - Hampus Lindholm
1990 Pro Set - Denis Morel
2006 H&P - Angelo Esposito - This probably was a good pull at the time, as Esposito was super-hyped around this time based on his junior numbers to date. He'd be drafted in the first round by the Penguins, and never played a game in the NHL.

2009 UD Biography - Paul Kariya
1994 Select - Alexander Mogilny
2012 H&P - Scott Kosmachuk
1996 Zenith - Vincent Damphousse

2019 UD - Vincent Trochek
1990 OPC - Rick Wamsley
2005 H&P - Ryan Suter
2020 MVP - Carter Hart - A mask binder card? Perfectly fine ending to this portion.
Wednesday, 15 September 2021
1991 Parkhurst - Rick Zombo - A rather dull start, but you gotta start somehwere.
1997 Be A Player - Patrick Cote - This time, the player-I've-never-heard of appears on the hit.
2019 SPA - Sidney Crosby - Gotta show off a Crosby.
2020 UD - Brock Boeser
1993 Stad. Club - Mike Needham
1995 Pinnacle - Wade Flaherty - If there's a theme in this group, it might be 'water bottles'.
2012 H&P - Roland McKeown
2015 Portfolio - Tyler Seguin
1995 Pinnacle - Dominik Hasek - Again, 'water bottles'.
2020 MVP - Jake Muzzin - Jake's full-on Amish here.

2019 SPA - Dylan Strome

1991 Parkhurst - Valeri Zelepukin

2012 H&P - Mark McNeill
2008 H&P - Jake Allen
1991 Platinum - Brad McRimmon

1995 Bowman - Steve Thomas
2019 UD - Jordan Weal
1993 Stad. Club - Rick Tocchet
2004 ITG Class of 2004 - Derek Roy/Nikolai Zherdev - - Half a Rangers alum card is still a Rangers alum card.
1993 Stad. Club - Martin Straka
1991 Platinum - Jacques Cloutier - Yet again, although it is offset by one of the better card photos of the early 90s.
2019 SPA - Mikael Granlund
1991 Platinum - Paul Ysebaert
2012 H&P - Gilbert Perreault - Some more 12/13 strangeness.
2005 H&P - Niklas Kronwall
1991 Parkhurst - Valeri Kamensky
2020 UD - Marcus Johansson
1991 Parkhurst - Tim Fergus
2003 MVP - Jani Rita - Another player I had no recall of.
1990 Pro Set - Neal Broten
2020 UD - Matthew Barzal
1990 Pro Set - Joe Murphy
2008 H&P - Brandon Sutter - WOO-HOO! 2/14 card, and it is a new card for that collection! My90th Brandon Sutter card.
1990 Pro Set - Brian Propp
2019 UD - Casey Mittelstadt
1991 Parkhurst - Grant Ledyard
2012 H&P - Tom Wilson - And the final card is an OHL card of a player that makes headlines in the NHL, but not really for the best of reasons.
