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.

Anders Hedberg left his mark on North American professional hockey by registering 856 points in 751 games between the WHA and NHL.  He was a trailblazer of sorts, being one of the earliest European transplants to find success in the NHL.  Although Hedberg was a Bill Masterton Trophy winner, an NHL all-star, and a prolific scorer – the lasting image we have of him is one that looks like Rutger Hauer reprising his Roy Batty character while on meth.

This card is a little bit of awesome, but still leaves us wondering if the art director insisted on painting the Swedes as crazy folk.

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 and we may post your submission

  1. I thought Don Moen played football…

  2. …I think I’ve seen him painted on the side of a 1970′s Chevy van, only he was green, had flames shooting off his head and was still way less creepy.
