Great looking card.

Here is my lone vintage hockey from the 1936 Olympics

The pic of the Vezina is from Hockeygods.com. I have yet to actually own a Sweet Cap (out of my budget), but I love the set. Jay, where did you pick up the Olympic card?

Got the card on eBay about 10 years ago for couple of dollars. I loved the fact that it was a goalie wearing glasses geek Pete, it's not a baseball card, so it doesn't count.

Ice hockey in the 1936 Winter Games: Great Britain wins the gold, upsetting the heavily favored Canadians. The U.S. grabs the bronze. Japan comes in 11th.

Love these postcards! Sadly don't own any...they are quite expensive. That Vezina would cost more than most houses Laughing .

That Vezina has to be considered the #1 top hockey card in existence, right? At least most valuable.

Most expensive hockey card would be the c56 #37 (not 36) Newsy Lalonde.

The Sweet Cap Vezina, while not the most expensive hockey card, is certainly at the top of many vintage hockey collectors wantlists. It's an absolutely gorgeous card.
