This guy has it all wrong-- he's got his eyebrows on his upper lip and his mustache on his forehead. And I though Thomas Jelinek was the Lanny McDonald of unibrows. . .

1992 - Action Hockey Freaks

1992 Action Hockey Freaks PackI've been looking at a bunch of other sports card blogs today and they all seem to be into listing what they pulled from whatever boring pack of cards. That's all they do, they open a pack of cards and list what was inside. Most of them don't even scan the full pack. Laammee.

But if that's what people want, I'm prepared to compromise. So here it is: One pack of 1992 Action Hockey Freaks!

Just in case you missed this set when it was first released, Hockey Freaks is a set of the fictional futuristic Atomic Hockey League which is set in the 2034. Sounds like a winner to me!

SP1 - Detroit Unemployed
Not just a foil sticker, but very topical too!
#6 - The Stuntson Brothers - Boston Stranglers

#14 - Charlie Horse - Chicago Gangsters
This guy is into branding other players' asses with a 'G'.
#23 - Brad Luck - Detroit Unemployed#31 - Wayne Grizzly - Los Angeles Pollution
Must be a good pack if I pull the Gretzky parody. #41 - Great Sesame - Montreal Flying Hasbeens#48 - Greg Proctor - New York Scums#56 - Boulhouboulhou Boulhou - Ottawa Mountees
And finishing off the pack is a racist caricature. Awesome! The back of this card is worth reading.

I've been too busy/tired/lazy to update the blog much lately, but I did put up some shitty cards for sale on

Someone already bought all of my 06-07 Sunkist Alumni cards and re-listed them at a higher price (what the fuck?), but there still are plenty of other cards to waste your money on, like beautiful Saskatchewan Place,

and convicted sex offender, Graham James
