Westside Connection Collection
So, I decided to forget Canucks RCs and just focus on the guys who went through my hometown minor hockey association (Westside Minor Hockey). It takes me from chasing every Canucks RC to just looking for cards of 4 guys. Here's what I have so far, sorry for the bigger pics.
#1 - Steve Kelly - The only Stanley Cup winner WMHA has produced
#2 - Barry Brust - The best goalie to come out of Westside Minor Hockey, at the very least, he's gone the farthest
(yes I have 2)
#3 - Danny Watkins - At this point, the single most successful athlete to come out of WMHA. He never made it as a hockey player but went from never playing a down of football at age 21 to being picked in the first round of both CFL and NFL drafts a few short years later. Was a great friend to have in high school and I will never meet a nicer person
(if anyone has an idea how many of these Panini Draft Day patch cards were made, that would be awesome...maybe the guy here who works for them? Can't remember who it is)
#4 - Justin Schultz - Has a shot at eclipsing Danny's success, he's already made quite a name for himself as we all know. Again, really nice kid with a good head on his shoulders. He will captain an NHL team one day, I truly believe that. I don't have much for cards, but he doesn't have many out there

It's alright. A nice place to be from, anyway. I would absolutely love the Okanagan Valley if I had a bunch of money. There's almost as big a gap between rich and poor here as there is in Vancouver, but it is my pick for most beautiful spot in Canada.

Great looking collection. Always cool to stick with the local guys.Collecting ALL the Ron Hextall cards...and other Philadelphia Flyers goalies, too.

So far I've got some pretty cheap players too ;)
Thought, I think Schultz is gonna be expensive next season

You've inspired me to do one with our hometown team, the Saginaw Spirit. Very awesome idea and great cards!

Keep me updated on that one. I love PCs that have a point.
