Card: #NNO Pat Quinn


“ We just had one of these cards come up recently...what are the odds that an obscure set like this would get the nod twice in such a short time? I'm sure the stats could be calculated but I'm not going to do it! ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Darn it. I'm a bit too late to send my wrappers and a dime to get an NHLPA decal. Nice vintage hockey oddball! ” -olerud363

“ Classic hockey, nice! Interesting design, putting stats on the front. ” -IfbBirdsCards

“ Whoa. Great guy, great card ” -mbarlow092

“ Love this set ! Quinn was a tough hockey player & great coach . ” -uncaian

“ They have no stats or team logos, but I still like these. Maybe due to the "uniformity" of the NHL Players uniforms and the odd shape makes it for a great "odd-ball" card. By using the posed photos, it gave a face to hockey players who weren't always seen too well (especially the goalies). Quinn went on to be a very successful and well-respected coach. ” -vrooomed

“ I wonder how many people started collecting because the bought a pack of cookies and received a few cards. ” -kirkscards

“ What is this? A Bookmark? ” -carthage44

“ I love it when food brands don't have logo rights. Cracks me right up. ” -wax_house

“ I like the title of this set and that's about it. It might make a good bookmark. ” -cnangle

“ Hmm didn't we have one of these about 3 months ago? Ah Yes posted on 27 June of this year John McKenzie. Older Brother to Bob & Doug. Hehehe. ” -captkirk42

“ Love the oddball food sets. ” -NJDevils

“ The legendary Pat Quinn, on an awesome vintage card. The NHLPA jersey is interesting. I'm curious about the backstory on this set. ” -kents_stuff

“ Dude! He looks like the brother from American Pickers! ” -Joshua825

“ Never mind him being so young here. I'm not used to seeing Pat Quinn without a piece of gum in his mouth. ” -DanD

“ The Mighty Quinn! Come on without, come on within... ” -Sportzcommish

“ Even with the odd shape, there is something really cool about it. I never knew Pat Quinn to be a player, I always knew him from modern day, so coaching, front office, etc. He wasn't much of a scorer, eh? Sorry, couldn't resist. ” -muskie027

“ God rest his soul, Pat Quinn gave people in Toronto reason to believe for a few years... ” -rmitchell6700

In a card world inundated with parallels and inserts of every possible imaginable kind, these true oddball sets bring the joy of collecting back to true collectors.  Though I do collect everything baseball, I probably enjoy finding an oddball set / card more than almost all else in the hobby, and definitely more than anything "rare" issued in the last 30 years. If baseball, this is the kind of card I would really enjoy adding tomy collection.
