Your 10 Favorite Hockey Cards

RE: Your 10 Favorite Hockey Cards
OK, this might be stretching things a little, but it will buy me some time to sort out and scan my actual favourite 10 cards.

My proposed sub-title for this post is "My Favourite 10-card Set". I have been thinking about posting this for a while, and this great thread gives me a close-enough reason.

Back when Beckett Hockey used to be a magazine-only format (which would take 2 months to arrive in these shores), there was a regular feature called "Mission Accomplished". It was with great pride - now replaced with embarrassment - that I had a feature published in the August 2005 issue. Enough said, here's the proof:

I've still got them, and no, they never did hang on the wall but are kept in a dark place away from the light - which is why it's taken so long to find them!

I suppose this could start another debate:- how Magnificent were Mario's Prospects? Here's my ratings:

MP1 - Marc-Andre Fleury - Hit (1 Cup....soon to be back-up for a 2nd!)
MP2 - Eric Staal - Hit (member of the Triple Gold Club)
MP3 - Patrice Bergeron - Hit (1 Cup)
MP4 - Michael Ryder - Semi-Hit (1 Cup)
MP5 - Ryan Malone - Hic! (sorry, Hit - one of my favourite Pens of all time, despite being shipped out just before they won the Cup)
MP6 - Tuomo Ruutu - Miss
MP7 - Joffrey Lupul - Miss (despite being the inspiration for the wicked king in Game of Thrones)
MP8 - Jordin Tootoo - Hit (several, very hard ones. No notable achievements, I just like the way he plays)
MP9 - Andrew Raycroft - Miss (Calder winner 2004, but limited shelf life)
MP10 - Nikolai Zherdev - Miss - (someone told Mario he had to include a token Russian*...)

* I know he was born in the Ukraine, but he won 2 WC Golds for Russia.

RE: Your 10 Favorite Hockey Cards
Here are my ten, also in no particular order.

My first one has a story to go with it. My son bought a box of Upper Deck and the LCS was having a promotion and gave him 5 packs of Overtime free with his purchase. He decided to give the free packs to me, and the following card is what I pulled. Man was he pissed!

Datsyuk # 2 / 3 Flash of Excellence Auto
