Trading Card Tuesday: Jarome Iginla

Today we salute Jarome Iginla and his quads. The shorts are little short Iggy, but with quadriceps the size of Ontario, I’d probably showcase my hard work in the gym as well. I’m not sure who your opponent is in this game of pong, but I feel sorry for them as they are about to have a ball imprint on the forehead from that smash. I can’t quite tell if you’re looking at the ball here or if this was staged for a photo shoot. Regardless, someone is getting dominated on the other side of the table. This...


Trading Card Tuesday: Martin Brodeur

Marty Brodeur, one of the best ever. The guy has won more games in the NHL than I’ve ever won playing NHL video games lying on my couch like a complete degenerate, crushing 30 racks of Molson Canadian, dump trucking bags of Dorito’s in my mouth and working on my milk bag body composition for upcoming beer league hockey season…but enough about me. Marty, I’m going to go with a C+ on the mustache in this one. Your upper lip could use a little more watering and a few consecutive days of sunshine to help stimulate growth. The...


Trading Card Tuesday: Glen Hanlon

Hanner, coming in HOT. Not sure if this one's real or photoshopped based on the unbalanced frame around the photo. Either way, the yam bag grab photo pose is certainly trading card worthy in my opinion.  Although I'm starting to question if that's a grab or more of scratch caused by an itch. Hopefully nothing funky causing the itch. Moving on…that helmet. I know helmet technology has come a long way (and certainly more fashionable), but can you imagine taking an Al MacInnis 100+ mph clap bomb to the bean in that thing.  No chance I'd stand in...


Trading Card Tuesday: Steve Smith

Ladies...meet Steve Smith.  All 6'3" and 215 pounds of him.  His shirt decided to call in sick today for the beach volley game at the Upper Deck photo shoot.  It's okay though, he has some paid time off accrued.  At 6'3", someone on the other side is getting spiked on that's for damn sure. This photo was clearly taken during the off-season, cause that tan is impossible living thru a Chicago winter.  Only explanation for an in-season shoot is a nice 10 day roadie thru the Sun Belt to play the southern teams, however we're leaning towards a...


Trading Card Tuesday: Steve Yzerman

It's quickly become one of our favorite days of the week here at the office. Trading Card Tuesday!  Had to go with a living legend this week.  Steve Yzerman, it's your turn.  Hard to find any imperfections in this one.  The only thing questionable is the backwards chair pose for the photo, but the form is textbook.  Which, obviously we'd expect nothing less of a man of your caliber.  The NHLPA letterman's jacket, screams I made it.  The hair here is special. While no bucket is present, can you imagine those locks tickling the back of Stevie Y's...
