Oh Billy Russell

I never seem to remember National Hockey Card Day. It is in busy season, and I don't have the time, let alone ability to make it to a participating store. Kind of stinks because they would be a nice add to the unopened pack collection, but can't have everything I guess. Hope you were able to get out and pick up a pack.

Speaking of Bill Russell, which I haven't been yet...

Highlights:

Two more Bill Russell cards out of the 2007-08 Topps Inesrt set for Bill Russelll's Missing Years. With these, that is 8 or the 11 that I have, so may just finish this one. I am somewhat torn on the make of the cards because the old designs are used, but not old the typical cardboard stock of the time. I think the new stock lasts better, but just isn't "of the time".

The rest
Keepers:

Not much, but a two star Black Diamond base card is still fine, and DOug Weight is a decent enough player too.

Traders:


Usual suspects again here, but still have to say, Brewer has a great smile...not that there is anything else to focus on with the "nothing but black" background.
