Who doesn't love milkshakes???

Awhile back I shared with you one of my favourite players growing up. Goalie Denis Herron. For those of you not with us in January, I urge you to go back in time and read that short little post. I'm sure he will become one of your favourites too.... LINK

Well, that card makes another appearance on the ole blog today, but for a different reason. There seems to be some sort of smeared scribbling on it now....
and it's brought some friends....
ahhh, good old '70's airbrushing..... like a warm blanket....
along with a couple of photos. Dig the old Scouts uni's....
ahh... clean ice, clean, white boards... those were the days.
Mr Herron got all this back to me in just 18 days. Amazing considering the speed of our postal system.
I also sent Denis three more cards that were extra so that he could keep them if he didn't already have them. He did. Maybe to keep, maybe to send out to others..... whatever.
Thanks Denis!

Awesome stuff. Denis is a great guy. Too bad about the smear on that first one.

Very cool. It's great to see when players (retired or current) take time to make a fan happy. Besides, without us, what would be the point of their careers?
