A Mail Day Past Due

This small stack of cards has been sitting in my closet for the past few months. I was about to top load (and team bag) the stack and decided to make a quick blog post about it.

My collecting roots start with baseball, but for the majority of the 1990’s I collected hockey. The ten year old me only collected the hot players of the 1990’s; Sergei Fedorov, Alexander Mogilny, Eric Lindros… and of course the worst #1 pick of all time, Alexandre Daigle (I’ll save that for another blog post).

When I began collecting again in my really early 20’s, I was back living in Minnesota and became a huge University of Minnesota hockey fan. One particular player, Jordan Leopold, was part of their 2002 National Championship team as well as the 2002 Hobey Baker award winner.

I began collecting Jordan Leopold during his 2002-03 rookie season. Since then my collection has grown quite large and I still pick up cards as I stumble upon them.

I am not a huge player collector of basketball. I already have enough collecting on my plate with my Twins, Wild, and Gopher hockey alumni. However, I never pass up a good deal. This low-numbered Towns jersey caught my eye with a low price tag.

Thanks for reading. Take care!

I was in college in the 90’s… but I too pretty much collected the popular hockey players from that era. Guys like Gretzky, Jagr, Brodeur, Hasek, Fedorov, Yzerman, Sakic, and Forsberg filled my hockey card boxes.
