Hartford Junior Whalers Postcards

This might be slightly off-topic for this site, but since the discussion about the Little Caesars Red Wings over-sized cards (I call 'em postcards) generated a bit of interest here, I'll start a thread about a similar run of interesting team-issued PCs issued by the Hartford Whalers.

The cards appear to have been distributed through the Junior Whalers kids club and have been checklisted by both Beckett and Charlton (both guides I have are from 2001). Somewhat common with those reference guides, the checklists are often incomplete or inaccurate. Maybe Beckett has corrected their information since then.

Both guides list the first of these sets as from 82/83 which is, coincidently, the same year Ron Francis rookie card appeared in the OPC set. The cards retained a similar format through the 91/92 season. Does anybody know if any of these sets were issued prior to 82/83?

I just picked up a set of cards from 89/90 that was most likely issued later in the season. Charlton lists a complete set at 24 cards; Beckett lists the set complete at 23. I have 25 different cards. This year, the set was "sponsored" by MILK.

Beckett and Charlton list three cards (17 Todd Krygier, 22 Ed Kastelic & 28 Mike Tomlak) as short prints. They were likely late season additions to the set. The card of Adam Burt isn't included in either checklist. Brian Lawton and Randy Cunneyworth are both pictured wearing #7. Lawton was placed on waivers and claimed by the Quebec Nordiques late in '89. Cunneyworth was acquired shortly thereafter from the Winnipeg Jets in a trade for Paul MacDermid. The cards of Lawton and MacDermid were probably included only in early season sets; Cunneyworth must have been another late season addition.

The set is likely complete at 25 cards. Heres a checklist of the cards known. If anyone is interested in a scan, let me know and I can post one.

1 Mike Liut
3 Joel Quenneville
5 Ulf Samuelsson
6 Adam Burt
7 Brian Lawton
7 Randy Cunneyworth
8 Jody Hull
10 Ron Francis
11 Kevin Dineen
12 Dean Evason
15 Dave Tippett
16 Pat Verbeek
17 Todd Krygier
21 Sylvain Cote
22 Ed Kastelic
23 Paul MacDermid
25 Grant Jennings
26 Ray Ferraro
27 Scott Young
28 Mike Tomlak
29 Randy Ladouceur
30 Peter Sidorkiewicz
32 Brad Shaw
34 Mikael Anderson
44 Dave Babych

Beckett and Charlton list cards from several other Junior Whalers sets as short prints. If anyone has any information about sets from other years (I have a few) please post them here.

1988-89 Hartford Whalers Junior Ground Round

This 18-card set of Hartford Whalesr was sponsored by Ground Round restaurants. The cards measure 3 11/16" by 8 1/4". The front features a borderless full color photo of the player. The team logo and a Ground Round advertisement appear in the blue and green stripes that cut across the bottom of the card face. The back has a black and white head shot of the player at the upper left hand corner as well as extensive player information and career statistics. Another Groudn Round advertisement and a Ground Round Drug Tip appear at the bottom of the card. The cards are unnumbered and hence are checklisted below in alphabetical order.
