    Yet Another PC Milestone, Courtesy of The Forgotten Radek Bonk!

    @creasecollector messaged me a couple days ago, to send me a link to a SWEET Craig Anderson card gallery, which I couldn't see! Along the way, Aaron asked how the Sens PC was coming....So, I can now give a long awaited update!
    Card #377 from 2003-04 Upper Deck is not really much to look at, in my opinion, but it does now hold a special place in my PC. Why, you ask? (And even if you didn't, I'm still going to tell you!) This card holds a special place in my PC, because it's NOT just a card... It's the High Gloss Parallel of Radek Bonk, serial numbered 3/25! It's also the 4425th card in the PC!
    It's also special to see, and be reminded of just how gifted Radek Bonk was as a player. Drafted at 17 by the IHL Las Vegas Thunder, he went on to play 10 mostly unheralded seasons in Ottawa, eventually becoming the team's top centre. He also has a historic distinction attached to his name, in that he was traded twice in the same day! Ottawa actually traded Bonk to the Kings for a kid named Sean Weller, but then LA packaged Bonk with Christobal Huet in a trade to Montreal for Mathieu Garon. He then finished his NHL career with Nashville, before returning to the Czech Republic, and retiring in 2014. In his 969 NHL games, he posted 194 goals, 303 assists, for 497 points.
    And that my friends and fellow pucknuts, is the status of my Senators PC...As well as a brief history lesson!!
    Always looking for Senators cards! Must be a draft pick, or the card is identifiable as a Senators card before I want it!

    Had a discussion with a buddy one night about sports figures with parents who didn't think before naming their children! Names like June Jones, Tracey McGrady, Ron Tugnutt, and my personal favourite, Nascar Legend, Dick Trickle! Bonk may have been the catalyst for that discussion!

    Is that because of my standing up for my team in the series discussion thread? I still haven't seen any Anderson galleries after his " Studlike" performance in game 6!

    I like how you share your PC updates. And Andy did have a great game. I'm sure he has a ton of fans out there. :)

    Just not in Pittsburgh!
    This thread was started, partly because of your interest Aaron, and partly because, while adding my Bonk cards, I got curious as to where he was! Like I said, the forgotten Radek Bonk!

    The want list at this link features what I need of Giroux, Couturier, Ottawa Senators, and Miscellaneous set. If you have nothing from it I will consider CFL cards, current Senators, Carey Price, Guy Lafleur, Patrick Roy (Habs), vintage hockey (pre 1970) and trade bait.

    Thanks and Happy Trading.

    Thanks, Peter! Without your help over the years, this collection would be nowhere near that number now!
