One Card Post - Hoisting the Cup

What:  2014-15 Upper Deck Canvas #C242 - Chris Chelios
Where:  COMC
How Much?:  $6.00

Why?
:  I've gone on record numerous times declaring my love for the short-printed "Retired Stars" cards that are included in the Upper Deck Canvas insert set each year.  This one represents one of the cornerstones of my admittedly small "players with the Cup" collection.  It also doubles as a nice addition to my "ageless wonders" collection, as Chris played until the amazing age of 48!

Will we be seeing a scene similar to this one later this evening, or do the Sharks have one last burst in them to force a game 6?  I think Crosby and the Pens lock it up tonight, how about you?

Awesome card. The back of the card is what you'll be seeing tonight. A dejected Shark skating off the ice.

Hah I hadn't even picked up on that, great observation Marc!

Adam Sanders said...

Yep, I'm with you. I think the Penguins wrap it up tonight.

Yes, the sickening inevitability of a Punkwang victory will probably happen tonight. To the extreme delight of the Nobody But Crosby Network who will praise them for weeks after they are done mauling another team into submission.

Haha, love the "Nobody But Crosby Network"!

Great player.

Ugly ass uniform.

I think I will have to branch out and start a Cup raising collection. I shudder at the number of Dead Wings cards I will have to put in the pages, though.

Cards with players hoisting the Cup are great. So much so that I started a little side project. Lots of fun and can be extremely inexpensive. Great stuff.

I love cards from any sport that show action or celebrations from the various championships. Hoisting the Cup is by far the best. Definitely need more of these! Thanks for the post.
