A Pair of Vintage Bruins

On Wednesday 08 February 2012, I got two vintage Bruins cards from a sportlots auction. Both cards have seen better days. If I had enough of these Hockey cards to talk about I'd start a "Poor Old Hockey Cards" blog. Unfortunately there are two big reasons I don't do that:
  1. I don't have enough of vintage Hockey cards to talk about.
  2. I don't have the time. I would have to get paid a nice salary that would replace my current job to be able to blog full time.

1961/62 Topps Hockey 6 Dick Meissner - Bruins

With this card I thought the whole thing was a drawing/sketch but it looks like the background with all the other players is actually a mono colored photograph. No matter what it is it is a very nice looking card, even it this particular specimen is in need of a whole lot of TLC.

1962/63 Topps Hockey 17 Irv Spencer - Bruins

This is a nice vintage Topps card, but why do I get the idea he looks like Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean?


  1. Those are some nice cards. The worn out condition adds to their charm, I think. Old stuff ought to look old.

  2. now those are some well loved cards!
