At "The Big One" card show in Vancouver - 2001
Me and Phil Kessel at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft card show in Vancouver.
That opened the door to wanting real hockey cards, and the next ones that came out were the good looking 1971-72 O-Pee-Chee set with the Dryden, and LaFleur rookies. Although there wasn't enough money to pick up more than the occasional pack, I always knew hockey cards were a more fun way to buy bubble gum.
Then elementary school gave way to middle and then high school, and other interests and sports became my focus as the 70's wound down. Adult life and a move to the big city of Vancouver started off the 80's. Then came travel and marriage.
