One Card Post - A Houston Aero
How Much?: $1.00 (free combined shipping)
Why?: Another card that I grabbed during my first cheap eBay order of 2018, taking advantage of free combined shipping. Expanding on the WHA portion of my collection is a goal of mine for this year, and at a buck shipped Poul Popiel here was some low-hanging fruit from the '74-75 release.
Poul, who was actually born in Denmark, played in just about every North American professional league you can think of during his lengthy career. His longest stretch with any one team was his six-year stint with the Houston Aeros, beginning in the inaugural season of the WHA. Must've been cool to have been a teammate of the great Gordie Howe!
