I've been looking for a good copy of this card for awhile now to send off ttm for an auto. Phil and Dan Bouchard were the original Atlanta Flames. I sent off for Dan's auto last week, Phill will go next week.
A nice '73of Canadian Hero Paul Henderson for .50 cents. If you find cards of Paul for under a buck, YOU MUST BUY THEM. It's in our constitution.
You guys have that guy who warned you about the British coming, we have Paul Henderson. Both saved their nations from oblivion.
Paul is currently battling cancer... I feel sorry for the cancer. Go Paul!
Of course I picked up a card of the Road Runner.
And a card of one of the Mahovlich brothers. This one is of the Peter the younger.
and of course what would that be without Frank the Elder?
Next, a couple of Rookie cards. First, Michel Plasse. Michel played for several teams in his career, but is most famous for his time in Colorado, playing for the Rockies.
Don Cherry, former coach of the Bruins and Rockies always has this to say about Michel whenever he sees a picture or "highlight" of him on TV.
"There's ole Michel Plasse, the Human Sieve."
I was sad to find out this week that Michel passed away in 2006.
Speaking of Don Cherry, the other RC I bought was of one of his two main goalies during his time with the Bruins.
People often think that Gerry Cheevers was Don's main goalie, but it was actually Gilles. Four division championships in 5 seasons. Bounced out of the playoffs by Montreal every time.
