The Worst Hockey Cards of All-Time is a new feature at Houses of the Hockey. On occasion, we’ll be highlighting some of the ugliest, funniest, and error-ridden cards both past and present.
Now, to be fair to Lanny McDonald, his legendary mustache would usually enhance the value of any card that he’s ever graced. For whatever reason, the Calgary Flames allowed Lanny McDonald (and his Flames teammates) to be photographed while sporting what look strikingly similar to beer league jerseys for a 1983-84 O-Pee-Chee shoot. Let’s assume that Molson products were a post-game staple for the 83-84 Flames – but were they so hard up that they required a beer sponsor for their practice sweaters? Killer ‘stache, Lanny.
Although we consider ourselves a bunch of nostalgia crazy hockey geeks, and have all collected cards throughout the years, we’re always looking for new cards to highlight. If you have a hockey card you’d like to see featured, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we may post your submission.
