Classic hockey and serial football

So purpose here is not to make anyone in their 40s feel old...but....as I am not a big budget collector, I will not spend $5 or $10 on a card so collecting hockey or baseball cards 1970s or earlier of any value is not something I go out of the way to do. So I do like when sets pay homage to players from the 70s and before because it creates more accessible cards for collecting. As I've mentioned here, getting 2006 Upper Deck Classics cards fit into this nicely. For hockey, 2004 Legends Classics fits as well and this is where we start today...

Here are the few such additions for the set (though unfortunately no Leafs):

Also have to put under the highlight the following since it is a serial numbered card...

The rest
Not much for the keepers other than a single other hockey card:

Plenty of football cards again in this batch - really looking forward to a bulk trade if someone is willing to take football and give up baseball....in a bulk trade, I would do a trade for any baseball (or hockey) for football.
