Robert at $30 a Week Habit gave a challenge to some bloggers to write 100 words on some cards he'd send their way. I was one of those to volunteered.
I just received the cards in the mail this morning so why not write about them?
Robert also sent a note saying that he finds it nice that we're getting more Canadians in the blogoshpere.
(This part is not included in my 100 words!!)
By this time he's established himself as a scoring threat.
Topps and OPC that year had the weird idea of scratch off sections on their cards to hide league leader stats and player names. This one is unscratched.
|1981-1982 OPC Record Breakers|
This card shows the first linemates to score 100 points each in a season.
The three are Simmer, Dave Taylor, and Marcel Dionne.
OPC showing the “Now With” as Simmer moved on from the Kings to the Bruins in the offseason.
|2002-2003 Upper Deck Foundations|
This was one I hadn't seen before. Very nice card with Simmer staring a hole through the holder of the card.
|2011-2012 Panini Limited|
Simmer played one season with the Barons, 1975-1976. This was after two seasons with the Seals. He went to the Kings and the rest is history.
And.... The verdict is... 126 words... D'oh! For whatever reason I thought this would be more difficult to get to 100 words.
Thank you Robert for the cards!
