Lunch Time Pick Up – Red Wing Mystery

As mentioned in my last post..the LCS is very close.
So close that today I walked down and exchanged pocket lint and spare change for…

1970-71 Larry Jeffrey Detroit Red Wings

Not bad centering. Great non action pose. Pretty much the model for the 2012-13 Retro OPC Parallel.

What’s super cool about this card? Larry Jeffrey was not a part of the Wings that year. he sat out the entire season due to injuries. The back of the card lists him as being in the Detroit Farm system.

According to my notes he had not played with the Red Wings for about 5 years by this time. His last 4 years were with the Leafs (with them for the ’67 Cup) and Rangers.

His rights were acquired back by the Red Wings but he did not play with them again. In fact he appears to have retired after the 1969 season(thanks Wikipedia).
