I have had these cards for an eternity and have just had no time to share them. My 53-54 project has been stalled a little lately as I have been working on a few other things but my love and desire is still strong with this set. These 5 cards bring my total up to 24 out of 105 which isn't too bad especially considering I have the Horton, Schmidt, Delvecchio and a few other higher BV cards.
However, some of the cards in this post aren't big names and may resemble a playing card with the roundness of the corners. Nevertheless, here they are:
#84 Gerry Couture
#3 Gord Hannigan
#77 Jim McFadden
former Buckaroo won the 1947-48 Calder Trophy as NHL top rookie with a decent 48 points in 60 games and beat out players like Red Kelly and Metro Prystai for the award. Jim would never top those totals over the next 6 seasons but did finish with a respectable pro career including 100 regular season goals and 226 points in 412 games. Jim also won a cup with Gerry in Detroit.
#69 Jim Peters
More Black Hawks! Like Jim and Gerry, this Jim won a cup with Detroit in 1950 and was actually shipped to Detroit in a trade with a few others guys (George Gee, Clare Raglan etc.) for a player to be named later and some cash(apparently 75G's). Jim does have to his credit 3 Stanley Cups (2 with Detroit '50, '54 and 1 with Montreal in '46).
#68 Don Raleighhere and here. The addition of this card makes 24 for this set and leaves me only two cards short of a set of Don Raleigh cards from his playing days. I am still missing his 54-55 Parkhurst and 54-55 Topps.
