A Leaf card of a Jay

Today is highlighted by a player, in his natural element of hockey - in a Leaf uniform, which he didn't wear for long. We already saw him in a Toronto uniform a while back - a Blue Jays uniform from the early 90s.


If you didn't guess who - Lindros of course is the player in question. As much as the Eric Lindros batting practice card with the Jays exemplifies how everyone seemed to get a baseball card in the 90s, I still really enjoy that card, and nice to get one here in a Leaf uniform as well.

The rest

I remember Sidorkiewicz as being the starting goalie for the expansion Senators - likely because of his long last name. By this time, as shown, he was with the Devils.


Another whack of QMJHL 7th Inning Sketch cards - possibly a set to be completed, but one I don't really want or need.Just like, it is great to see a new set with the Podkonicky card, but being a CHL set, I have no interest in keeping or seeing more of the set.

  1. I haven't seen many Lindros cards of him in a Leafs jersey, same with Nolan. Where are you getting these assorted array of cards from by the way?

  2. The quick story, I believe, is the guy I got them from, bought a storage locker, and wanted rid of the cards, so I got the assorted lot (he said 15k cards, I think closer to 13k) for $70. Where they were collected from in the locker - no idea! ☺
