Paul Coffey played 1409 games in the NHL with 9 teams and was inducted in to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2004; this is his story in 9 cards.
I had read on SCF somewhere about collecting 9 cards of a player to tell their story. I was going through some cards from my 2000-01 UD Vintage set and came across Paul Coffey in a Bruins uniform and though that I could easily do a 9 card collection for him. Turns out that is not as easy as I had hoped as Coffey played for 9 teams in his career and I do not have cards of him with every team he played for. I debated just finding images of his cards on the Internet but that would be cheating so I will just go with 9 cards I have and maybe some day I will be able to add cards of him with the Chicago Blackhawks and Carolina Hurricanes.
Paul was drafted 6th overall by the Oilers in 1980.
