Newsworthy – January 30, 2011 – NHL All-Star Game

30 Jan

In honour of today’s NHL All-Star festivities, let’s take a look back at a couple of great NHL All-Star cards from the past.  1990-91 Pro Set, one of my personal favourites, had a great All-Star subset.

1990-91 Pro Set - Bernie Nicholls All-Star

1990-91 Pro Set - Ron Francis All-Star

It was a different time then, a time when players didn’t get new gloves when they were named to their conference teams, they wore their club team gloves, no matter how bad they looked.  Case in point, see Ron Francis and Bernie Nicholls above.

Things sure have changed.

SIDE NOTE:  If you are interested in NHL uniforms, make sure you go to www.nhluniforms.com and www.icethetics.info.  Cool sites.
