Part of being an Alex Delvecchio collector means that I have to decide if I am going after some of the food and confectionery cards. The answer is yes! I have some Bee Hives already and now I have my first Coke.
1965-66 Coca-Cola Alex Delvecchio
What I like most about this set is how complete the stats are on the back. Almost unheard of at the time to have complete NHL regular season and post-season stats. As you can see, Alex was good regardless of the time of year. Please forgive the pink tinge on the front and back, they don't actually appear on the card, but my old scanner for some reason tinged them. I should have scanned them with my new scanner, but alas I am limited on time and am pretty lazy. I do really like these cards and might some day consider tracking down the complete set of 108 cards which currently is books for about 400 bucks. Alex is by no means a super expensive card as it only books for about 5 bucks, but as I said before, I do have a fun one to share next post!
