There’s a few things to appreciate with this hockey card from Upper Deck. For one, the most obvious, Mike Grier is chowing down on a slice of pizza. Mike is also wearing a watch in full hockey gear. I’ve played a bit of hockey and watched a lot of hockey and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hockey player sport an analog watch in their gear. Also, note the sweet 70s couch that Mike Grier is perched on.
Add it all up and you’ve got yourself a helluva hockey card right there.Stick tap reader Matt MacG for the tip the card and this great hockey card blog.
