Rest in Peace Mr. Hockey

Today we lost one of the game's greatest players, ambassadors and father. Gordie Howe passed away this morning at the age of 88. Words cannot express my sadness and I am just so happy to have my own special memory of meeting this legend.

Thank you Gordie for all that you have done for the game, and here are a few special cards of him from my collection.

65-66 Coca Cola
 


70-71 OPC Mr. Hockey Error (NNO)
 

79-80 OPC  (Last card from his playing days)
 

 77-78 OPC WHA (Last WHA Card)
 

An autographed handout when I saw his skate with the Thunder Bay Thunder Hawks
 
The card Bamlinden turned that signature into. 
Thanks for looking. :'(

    1. Can't agree more and thought of you when I heard the announcement. They did a great tribute to him and I hope he is somewhere smiling.

    1. Thanks Marc! Bought a Delvecchio and the seller had the Howe too and couldn't pass it up.

  3. Do you drink Pepsi or Coca-Cola?
    ANSWER THE POLL and you could get a prepaid VISA gift card!
