The Wayner, The Great One, Ole 99. I still remember the final game like it was yesterday. Praise You by Fatboy Slim playing as you circled the ice one last time.

A classy way to retire, no season long farewell tour. Just an announcement and then poof gone a days later.

The 1999-2000 Upper Deck set. The last cards to picture your last season. (Although you still appear on many card sets to this day).

Started out the set with a 10 card mini subset. 9 cards picturing you as an Oiler (You’ll always be an Oiler despite what others think)

1 as a King (and you are the King).

Here are 6 of them.

Sometimes getting one card you need in a trade is worth it. It could be your favourite player, It could be the one card you need for the set to be completed or started. Or it could be the one card that is worth more than the others.

In this case, it’s just one more card toward completing the set. But it is a good one.

1979 O-Pee-Chee Dale Murphy.

Although his RC is from 1978 this is the first card he appears alone on.

Undervalued and deserving of a place in the Hall Of Fame (he missed the cut), he will always remind me of the 80’s in Atlanta.
