If you think you have had a rough week, take note, no one has had as challenging week as Don Edwards. If you know what I am talking about then you already know. If you don't I will not get into it as I will not ever be able to do the story justice so just check out these two links:
When ever I think of Don Edwards I am reminded of his RC. Don had a remarkable rookie year finishing with a 16-7-2 record and a 2.51 gaa. Don followed that season by playing 72 games the next year and had an excellent record of 38-16-17, 2.64 gaa. Along with the 38 wins, Don had 5 shutouts.
Through out his 10 season career, Don would win 208 games and post 16 shutouts. His career highlight would be a Vezina trophy in 1980 which he shared with Bob Sauve.
Front side is a clean design, very simple and one that isn't such much memorable but is really what I think about when I think of 70's hockey cards.
Much like the front, the back side is clean with stats and a write up in English and French. There is also a little cartoon with a factoid about the player.
How I received it: I bought it back in the early 90's can't remember what I paid.
Beckett Value: $2 - 4
I have several cards from this set, but not the set itself. Someday maybe, I have a secondary project I have started working on and it is to have a set from each year between 1951 and 1993. I have a few coming in the mail over the next little while which I will share when they arrive.
