I've been keeping purchases to a minimum over the last month or so not because there isn't stuff I like but mainly due to the fact that I'm being more selective. But I just had to splurge when I stumbled upon a card I had seen months earlier and immediately wanted to secure. My big purchase, clocking in at a whopping 75 cents: Mike Liut's 1983-84 O-Pee-Chee offering.
There's just sooooo much to love about this brilliant piece of cardboard. The fantastic yet simple all-white mask Mike is sporting that is reminiscent of the Jason movie mask; the phenomenal colors the Blues had and those great musical note sweaters; the color-coordinated goalie stick; and that blocker studded with Lemonheads and clearly made from a 70s-era couch.
Here's the card back for those who enjoy them. Liut was an All-Star with a goals-against in the 3s. Different, different times I tell ya.
