Anyone want a Flutie?


Before we get to the title card - here is my own personal highlight of the cards today. A rookie card for someone who ended up, a couple years later, playing one game in the NHL for the Flyers getting 2 penalty minutes for his effort.

Still - one game is better than many rookie card subjects.

The rest

Been a while since seeing an All World subset card from 2004-05 SP Authentic, but Iginla's a good add.


Here is the Doug Flutie card which always reminds me of when I was as close to following the Bills as I ever was. Really wish he was able to make a bigger impression in the NFL, but can't argue with the CFL career he had.

A shame that these were all dupes as well.

  1. He may not have had a big impact in the NFL, but Flutie is still loved in Buffalo! I think "Flutie Flakes" were the first cereal I remember being designed for a local athlete.

    1. Being in Toronto, wasn't sure how Buffalo felt about him, but nice that he made a similar impression on the fan base there that he did here.
