Huh? It’s a nice save and all, but nothing to do with hockey cards. Wrong video link.

Thanks. Video gave me wrong embed code, but it’s fixed now.

That is exactly what a real print shop looks like, so it was pretty cool for me to see the refractor sheet.

Thanks for sharing Susan!
I love collecting but also love seeing what goes into making these cardboard pieces of joy…dream of mine is to hang at one of these places for a day or two, even bigger dream would be to have a hand in creating trading cards.

Watching that video, it appeared that they were just placing white jersey swatches into the cards randomly…..in other words, I don’t know how they could possibly be able to verify that the jersey they are placing into those holes belonged to that specific player…..the cards being overlaid on top of the swatches were diversified across many different players….

This is a great video. It was originally on NHL Live on the NHL Network.
