The third and last beckett.com purchase was from Triple Play Sports Cards. Since they are local, my wife picked up the order for me when she was over in that part of town. There were about 100 cards in the purchase. There were a few odds and ends baseball cards, but probably 80%-90% were hockey cards; Dallas Stars and Minnesota North Stars to be exact. There were cards from 16 different years, and here are some representative samples from each of them.
2005-06 Upper Deck. There were many Marty Turco cards in the lot, and this was my favorite with the opponent leaping at him like that. He is my favorite Stars goalie ever.
1973-74, 1976-77, and 1977-78 Topps. Now we're really jumping back in time. That's mainly because my 80's and 90's team sets are near complete. The border of the 73-74 set reminds me a lot of the Philadelphia brand football cards of the late 60's. I didn't mean for this post to come across as so anti -Topps. I've actually been very pro-Topps generally over the years.
This wraps up my posts of recent hockey purchases. I don't have any more in the works. Maybe it'll take another new hockey season to start them up again.
