Dominik Hasek: 50/50 Trade Pickups

In addition to the one Jimmy Howard card, I got three new cards for my growing Dominik Hasek collection from Chris at The Collector as part of our recent 50/50 trade.

My favorite of the bunch was this one from 2000-01 Topps Stadium Club. It is card #12 in the set and has an awesome overhead shot of Hasek in his black Sabres jersey. Other than his Red Wings jersey, this is the one I associate with him the most because it was around that time that he became my favorite player when I was a kid.


The next one is a bit older and shows Hasek in the older Sabres jersey. This card is from 1995-96 Pinnacle Summit, which is nicely pointed out in the upper left corner. One thing I like about this card is how the background is cropped out, but only on the right side.


The last one is this Skilled Stars insert from 2000-01 Upper Deck. We're back to the black sabers jersey here and this card definitely looks better in person than in the scan. The border on the left fading to red does make his block look a little funny, doesn't it? 


So that's three cool new cards for my Hasek collection. I'm not even sure how many I have at this point, so I really need to get on that and come up with a count. Same goes for my other player collections. I also need to work on getting all of my Hasek base and insert cards into a binder so they are easier to look at and organize.

  1. Love Hasek's cards. I do have that Skilled Stars item, it's great. Gotta get that Stadium Club one.

    1. What I love about the Stadium Club is you see nothing but Hasek and the puck. There is nothing else there cluttering up the photo.

  2. The peak of my hockey fandom was during the 90's when there were so many awesome goalies to cheer for. But Brodeur and Hasek were in a league of their own. Great times and great cardboard.

    1. Couldn't agree more. I love seeing all the great 90's cards of those guys.
