1973-74 Topps #99 Minnesota North Stars
At some point in my adolescence, I managed to acquire a pretty cool lot of 1973-74 Topps hockey cards. I remember trading for them with another kid, and I'm sure that I probably gave up some late '80s/early '90s cards from another sport, but I have no recollection at all as to what I gave up or who I traded with. At any rate, I managed to pick up nine North Stars cards from that set, along with a Bobby Orr, both Espositos, and a Billy Smith rookie, among others. They're not in the greatest shape (though most are better than this team card, with its giant crease down the middle), so I may upgrade eventually, but they've done the job for this long...
