While most are probably interested in baseball cards, some might even enjoy vintage hockey cards. These cards, designed by a guy named Robert L. Moore, have some of the most recognizable faces of the first era of hockey, and they’re also the easiest to find.
In the mid-nineties, Moore started an eBay auction of hockey cards and hockey memorabilia. He found many of the same faces on the cards as he had found on the memorabilia. He decided to try selling them on his own website, Vintage Cards, and has since been selling a lot of cards.
Although the idea of selling hockey cards and hockey memorabilia is great, I think the best way to make some money with them is to sell the cards that you don’t like. There was a time when every single hockey card was one of the most sought-after cards with the most recognizable faces. I remember buying some of the best cards I ever owned from a guy named Ted Bickford, who sold a set of cards for $5 each.
That’s a great strategy for selling cards that you do like, but I’d rather find a way to make a buck, and this is a great way to do that. You can make a lot of money online selling cards that you dont like, but it’s a great way to make a few bucks to put towards the cost of a hockey card or memorabilia.
I used to play hockey with my dad, and my dad was a die-hard fan of the Dallas Stars. His favorite player was Al MacInnis, and so it was no surprise that I liked to collect cards that were either autographed or were autographed by players I had previously heard of.
I’ve always had a soft spot for cards that are autographed, because autographs are always cool and the owner/creator has a vested interest in their fans. That being said, autographs can sometimes be the kiss of death for a great card. I had a card of my first NHL championship. It was great, but the autograph was a red-flag for me because it was signed by my favorite player of the 90s, Ollie Cline.
A great card is a rare one, and I wouldnt say that autographs kill cards, but they can certainly make your cards worse. I had a great signed card of one of my favorite players of all time, Steve Yzerman. This card was signed by both Yzerman and his son, Ryan, who played for the Boston Bruins, and it was a great card. Unfortunately, this card is no longer available.
I can just remember one particular card which was very similar to this one, and it was signed by my favorite player of all time, Wayne Gretzky. But that card was signed by the other Gretzky, and was a great card, but it was an autograph.
When I think about the time I spent in the minors before I got drafted, the cards were a huge part of the experience. I remember playing a few games with these guys and getting to know them. It wasn’t as much fun as it is now, but I had a great time.
I love the nostalgic nature of playing vintage hockey cards, but it takes a lot of time and effort to make them. When I saw that these cards are available on a new site called Vintage Hockey Cards, I was very excited. It could help me get my hands on some of the rarest cards, some of the coolest players of all time, and many other wonderful items.
