we know that there are a few guys here with 1/1 psa graded 8,9 10's etc... etc...,
aside from the graded hockey cards i would like to see something that each collector here has that they think is unique that no other collector may not have in there collection. i will start with my pair of 1969-70 o-pee-chee series 1 and 2 boxes.

It has been a really long time since I posted anything, but since talking to Bobby B. at Expo, I have found a couple items that I have always wanted. Other than my autographed copy of the Bobby's book, my favorite pick up is this Maple Crispette box. It is a little beat up, but not bad for 85 years old. Plus, I had never seen one before.
I honestly have no idea if this the box the cards came in. I have talked to a couple guys that collect the Maple Crispette baseball cards and they seem to think so. According to them, and Bobby's book, there were 2 different boxes with prizes in them. Since the one I have has a winter scene on it, I would like to believe it could have contained hockey cards. I just want to have a box to display with my set.
Nice variety Ray, I have seen a few different of those little note books of the leafs, pretty rare stuff. Thanks for the info on the Ogden card.
The transparent hockey card is from Blue Cap Cheese and are called Flixies. Here is a picture of the Album, hockey flixie in the album and the advertisement.
The most intersting part of this flixie was the one player has scored and the goalie and other team-mate are watching in disbelief. Looks to be very reminessant of the Bill Barilko goal as these were issued in 1952 sometime. If you enlarge the picture of the flixie, you can clearly see the Montreal Canadiens team logo on the jersey.....~!
So maybe this is the 50 Mission blue Cap....!?
Plus an outer cig sleeve for your Turf hockey card.
I found this team photo with teenagers Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita at a show in Kansas City over ten years ago. Other future NHLers include Roy Edwards, John McKenzie, Wayne Hillman, Chico Maki, Matt Ravlich and coach Rudy Pilous.
I have no idea for how much it would sell but it's still one of my best finds!
I was not aware of this error card. I think you are saying that there is a variant of card #61 (Topps 1962-63) where Marcel Paille is named on the card instead of Frank Paice. How common is this error card?
Wow--What a cool card! I always this was a funny card since he was a trainer. I would have really been sad if the guy had actually gotten his own card and they put the wrong name on it! This is definitely a unique item!
I wonder what happened to all of those cards that had been printed already?
I don't know whether there are Paille/Paice error cards out there. I had read the same article Bobby left scan on years ago. Maybe examples will turn up.
The Paille examples I have posted are both obviously printers proofs not error cards as they blank backs. I do find it amazing that in 1962, quality control was good enough to catch the printing error involving 2 persons not previously shown on a Topps card.
It must have been an interesting discussion amongst card company officials in deciding what to do.
All in all, a glimpse into vintage card making circa early 60's.
Thanks Ryan for posting a better scan on the Paice thread.
I'm down to 1 card left to finish my 1962 Topps set in PSA 8 or better, but the card I need is low pop. and I can't find it anywhere! Since you have the printing plate, could you print me off a nice #40-Murphy? It just needs to be nice enough to get a PSA 8. I would love to be able to finish this set!
