One Card Post - A Partner for Plante
How Much?: $10.00
Why?: I was drawn to this one because I love vintage hockey cards, and because I thought it would pair nicely with the beautiful Jacques Plante I landed from this set last year. Like the Plante, this card is in impressive condition given that it's now more than 60 years old.
Ron was a member of the Maple Leafs team that won three consecutive Stanley Cups in the early '60s. In the latter half of his career he spent time with the Bruins, Blues, Canucks and Rangers. Stewart even played in 18 games for the Providence Reds of the AHL during the '71-72 season, something I wasn't aware of when I purchased the card but that gives it a cool local connection for me.
Thanks as always for stopping by!
