A month or two back I was the recipient of a very generous package of Hartford Whalers hockey cards from my good buddy Douglas, of Sportscards from the Dollar Store fame.
When the dust settled and I'd looked over and sorted the cards, I found exactly a dozen that were brand new additions to my Whalers collection...
We began the post with a Sean Burke, and ended the post with a Sean Burke. How fitting.
With these dozen in hand and added to my collection on The Trading Card Database, I'm now up to 1,677 Hartford Whalers cards and counting. That's more than 37% of all the Whalers cards listed in the database, so I've got room to grow still. Nonetheless, that's currently good for the 3rd largest Whalers collection on the database.
I'll keep striving to reach #1, and on that note I received another awesome package from Douglas just today in the mail! I'll be back with those in the coming weeks, but until then thank you so much Douglas for these much-appreciated cards, and thanks to everyone else for stopping by!
MASONIC MONDAY: Let's drive this thang! Plus the almost daily FREE card giveaway! - *The winner Friday night was TDK, between RJ and him they have taken six of the last eight, WOW!* *Now on to the post. It is a very short one.* ...
Great stuff! Love seeing cards from the 90's. That Parkhurst International set was one of my favorites as a kid.
1,677 Hartford Whalers cards? That's super impressive! Best of luck in reaching and becoming the largest collection.
That Shanahan sure looks like the Metal parallel to me, the mirror foil cards.
I must have some Whalers cards that you need. How close are you to the #2 ranking on TCDB?
