blair--good to see you're buying cards from your own country. hopefully that means you'll stay away from our tobacco and caramel cards from now on! yuck

(for the record i became a naturalized US citizen in 1991, so my usage of "we/our" is correct)

Gents,

I proudly share with you what is likely my most amazing hockey pickup ever...this is a one-of-a-kind (AFAIK) 1907-08 Alfred G. Pittaway Studios Cabinet of Tommy Phillips - one of the greatest players of early hockey, and an inaugural member of the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1945. The image quality is stunning, with Phillips in his Ottawa team sweater...and there are no cards of Phillips:

Amazing cabinet and even more amazing given the fact Phillips has no cards.

I don't venture over to this side of the board often but certainly was rewarded this morning. Beautiful cabinet & C55's Blair!

Thanks for the nice comments, fellas! I was holding my breath in the wee hours of the morning a couple weeks ago to hang on to my bid on that cabinet!!! It was worth losing a bit of sleep over, I think. Shocked
