Red Wings: New Additions

The biggest portion of the box of stuff I got from My Hockey Card Obsession was made up of Red Wings cards. There was an excellent variety of stuff from the 90's, 00's, and today. Rather than going through and scanning the nearly 200 cards, I thought I would pick a few 9-card pages worth just to show the variety of stuff I was able to pick up.

These first nine are the ones that stuck out the most to me after sorting through all of them. I have to say the Lidstrom O-Pee-Chee Premier is my favorite. It's an awesome looking card and its even numbered 12/75, how cool is that?

The next page has got another great mix of things. I really like the Parkhurst Yzerman even if the design is a little out there and obnoxious. The Forgotten Franchises is pretty cool too with the black and white photo of a maskless Hap Holmes.

This page has a nice mix of old and new, the old being the players shown on the cards. The middle three are really nice with the cool full color pictures from way back in the day, plus check out those awesome brown gloves on Delvecchio.

The next page has a bit more 90's to it with some great cards of Steve Yzerman, Sergei Fedorov, Nicklas Lidstrom, and Brendan Shanahan. Hard to believe all of these guys were on the same team for so long through the three Cup runs in 1997,1998, and 2002.

Last but not least we've got a nice selection of cards from the early 90's. These are from a time when I was just getting into hockey as a kid, so some of these names are always nice to see pop up on cards. That said, there is just something weird about seeing cards of Bob Probert now that he's gone.

There were a ton of cards beyond these, but I figured I wouldn't go through and scan every last one of them. These will also give my Wings collection total a nice bump further above the 1000 mark. Now I just need to work on cataloging them so I don't double up on cards I already have in the future.
