A few weeks ago I arrived home to find a padded mailer hanging from my mailbox. It was hanging, rather than being inside the box, because it was rather large; big enough that it could hold full-size magazines without bending or folding them. I hadn't purchased anything that would require a package of this size that I could recall, so I truly wasn't sure what to expect when ripping it open. It did have some odd postage on the front that seemed to be from overseas somewhere.
ripped a pack from this brand years ago now, cool to see what their current offering looks like. Again we've got ties to Connecticut, as Broc Little played his college hockey at Yale in New Haven! To me the coolest element on this card is the fantastic lion logo used by the Linkoping hockey club.
I think this post is truly proof that the hobby we enjoy, just like sports, can unite people from all over the globe. Having hockey cards from Sweden in my collection is great, but knowing that they were part of someone's collection in Sweden at one point makes them that much greater!
