It's been a while since I posted so here's two retro Bill Ranford cards. I stumbled across a picture on eBay. I have never seen pictures of Bill Ranford in an Oilers uniform while wearing a cage. I am guessing that this picture was taken on November 9, 1988. For one, the Oilers only played two road games against the New Jersey Devils that season, and two, #23 for the New Jersey Devils, Bruce Driver, only played in 27 games that season, and only one at home versus the Oilers. Ranford must have donned a mask later in the season. He has one on for his 1989-90 Panini Sticker.
For some reason, I felt the picture scream 81-82 OPC.
Afterwards, I felt it'd be better as an 88-89 OPC, is if it was from the update set.
Since I'm using his picture, I may as well provide a link to his auction. Guy has tons of 3x5 pics from the 80s.
