Thanks Dale. Now, I would love your take on why so many players with such incredible longevity? Joe Thornton obviously is an outlier at 26 years or whatever it is, but it seems 20 is not all that unusual whereas it would be in other sports.

Peter, I wish I had the answers for you but I honestly don't think there any that are conclusive?

Some guys are china dolls compared to others and some guys like to hit and pound and other's want no part of that if they can help it.

Size, training, conditioning, shape all come into play as well, but I also think some get hurt more and have shorter careers because, like Lindros, they don't keep their heads up, or they get into those dirty/tough spots where other players won't.

If you've ever watched William Nylander, (Leaf's) he'll completely give up on the puck if he knows he is going to be hit. Others will do what they have to do or need to do despite knowing a hit is coming. It goes on and on. Some are fluke reasons why some of their careers are short and some are the results of their actions.

I think of Aaron Ekblad this year. He was having a career year and was looking forward to the playoffs but a fluke/freak accident ended all that in a heartbeat with a broken leg.
Will Aaron come back from that and be the player he was prior? Likely, but there's a chance he won't and might he be a little more gun shy now, a little slower, maybe? Will this eventually catch up to him, (the injury) as he gets older and possibly shorten his career?

It goes on and on Peter. Some are fluke career ending injuries and some never get injured, or get injured enough to ruin their careers.

And in my opinion that number will only increase going forward due to the nature of today's game.

The first 2 on your list made me chuckle. Gretzky was likely the most protected player ever during his career, and the other, well, not many fooled, or dared fooled with Gordie.

I think the overall explanation has to have something to do with the balance between skill level and physical decline, such that the great hockey players more often remain valuable to teams into their 40s because of their skill and experience, whereas that typically doesn't happen in the other sports?

Have officially entered the hockey world. Picked this one cause of being such a rabid Pittsburgh fan growing up.

An '85-'86 OPC NM set

Congrats, that is a great set. So many great players in there, and its just classic '80s. Enjoy your new foray into hockey.

Thanks. It was more reasonable than I expected after finding the PSA Mario separately, and getting the 263/264 partial was an usually good bang for your buck w/ how loaded it is, as you said. Set has so many fairly valuable second and third tier cards.

But this hockey foray can't continue. The other sports are expensive enough as it is

That's nice stuff, Jim. Most of us who collected as kids in the era just threw away that stuff. Logos? Who wanted those?? And stickers? My friend Henry and his brother used to decorate their bedroom door with the Topps stickers. I stuck 'em on a filing cabinet I used to hold my cards. D'oh! Crazy thing is after I moved out my parents used the file cabinet to store nails and such in the garage, stickers and all.

1973 OPC "Funny Rings" set of 17 purchased this weekend at the National. Marked $125 and I think I paid $85 (or $5 each) Not much hockey at the show, and I heard the main guy Len was unable to cross the border from the Great White North. Maybe next year?

Great stuff everyone! Here's a few cards I sent to SGC a few weeks ago and were returned to me yesterday. Lots of fine grades, super happy! Excited to add "rookie cards" of Stacy Peralta, Snake-Eyes, Storm Shadow, Megatron and Deadpool to my collection LOL! Last two photos are of a Jay Adams Memorial Service Booklet I picked up from ebay.

Picked up this exciting lot of William Paterson cards. These were issued during the 1923/24 season and Jefferson Burdick gave them the catalog number of V145-1 (don't confuse them with V145-2, which are smaller in size and have different card numbers!) Anyhow, the big fish here is the Howie Morenz rookie, but some of the other key rookies are also in this lot, and that includes Frank Clancy, Aurčle Joliat and Jack Adams.
