HOF + Benny = A Great Mail Day

Everyday when I go to the mail box, I am looking for cards.  Even when I know that there are none coming.  This past week however I knew I had some cards coming, and they were all in my mailbox at the same time.

First were two separate ebay purchases, both of NHL Hall Of Famers
Pierre Pilote was pretty much a career Blackhawk who was ranked number 59 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 greatest hockey players. The Blackhawks retired his #3 in 2008.  Back in 2005, in a series of stamps honoring great hockey stars, the Canada Post honored Pilote.  I am about 99% sure that this is not that stamp.  I don't care, I love the card, and he is a HOFer.  Gilbert Perreault was a Sabre for all 17 seasons of his NHL career.  He has 500+ goals and 800+ assists and a whole bunch of hardware to show for it.  This jersey looks to be from some sort of HOF game jersey, as I do not know of any red Sabres jerseys.  I could look at the back of the card, but it has already been stored away.  No matter, I like it and I got it!

Now the third package was from BA Benny. I have a bunch of cards that I will be sending out to him tomorrow, but when I got my half of the trade...let's just say BA Benny came hard like Boscoe Albert "BA" Baracus! 

These are just the pretty faces in the bunch.  He also took the time to go through my want lists and pull 32 cards I need for my team sets!

I do so love a full mailbox!!!
