With the Stanley Cup going on, what better time to give away some cards?
But first, as with the soccer contest, I have to show some packs.
I'm not a hockey fan, so my expectation of recognizing names has been on a downward trajectory since NHL '94 on Sega. I didn't recognize any of these four.
Goalie cards rock. I recognize Chris Osgood.
Sharks are cool. No idea who he is.
I got two Choice Reserve Maple Leafs. That sentence makes no sense if it isn't capitalized.
If you aren't a hockey fan, you probably had no idea that is a Columbus Blue Jackets logo. The "TM" in there really pisses me off.
Very nice card. Topps baseball could learn a thing or two from this card.
I loved Collector's Choice Stick'ums when I was a kid. These have a thicker backing, which is wonderful.
Last pack before we get to the contest, I promise.
Fantastic cards. I recognize all except Stillman.
Dainius Zubrus has the Championship Fever. The best things for getting rid of that fever are Red Wings and LA Kings. At least, that's what Zubrus found out the hard way.
Ok, contest time.
I've mentioned a couple of times that I loved NHL '94 for Sega Genesis.
All you have to do to win is guess my favorite player in NHL '94.
You may submit one guess per hour until someone gets it right.
If you guess correctly, you will win every hockey card I own, including a relic card of an NHL Hall-of-Famer.
