Cartoon of the Day...

Denis is one of my favourite goalies of all time. He played for Pittsburgh several times, Kansas City, and Montreal. All great reasons to like him. But I think the real reason can be traced to this card.
I pulled this out of a pack as a kid way back when... after I read the back, I was in awe. He became one of my heroes that day.
"Denis drinks up to 8 milkshakes a day."


Awesome.

You see that? That's a nice card design. That's a nice card back design. That wasn't based on any old sets. That wasn't utilizing brand new technologies or fads. It was a candid photo, nice color, clean lines, and wonderful graphic design. Most importantly, there is a lot of player info. I miss that in todays cards.

That is a great caption. I now feel the need to run and get a milk shake. Thanks.

Wombat, good comment. There is something lost with all the flash of today's cards. The card companies need to get back the "Keep It Simple, Stupid" design they used when cards were cards.

Hey CC, I've been emailing you about a trade, but I haven't heard so much as a e-Bip back from you...check your spam filter?

And now I'm hungry for a milk shake, too...
