Fan Requests

  Okay, maybe I am exaggerating by saying fan requests, but on my Lost Page: 85-86 OPC, Mike said if he could add a card to the 85-86 set, it would be Petri Skirko.  Petri led the Canucks in points in his sophomore season and had four straight season of 30+ goals.  His rookie card was in the 86-87 OPC set, which was a very peculiar picture.  He's not even looking at the camera.  For the card I made below there is an fairly big issue.  The Canucks had the Flying V jerseys until the 1984-85 season, so this picture is from sometime after the set was actually released.  I originally had the perfect picture for the card but things didn't quit look right.  First off was the helmet on Petri was different than anything else he had worn and next was the mask on the goalie in background.  Turns out I almost posted  Lars Molin as Petri Skriko card.  So the card below is a bit of a cheat.  I actually believe, based on the patch on the hip, this picture is from the 1986-87 season.  I could not find a suitable picture of Skriko in a Flying V jersey.  Mike also suggested a Todd Bergen and Mats Thelin.  The Bergen will posted as a Lost Rookie in the upcoming weeks.  Thelin is in the queue for a Lost Rookie.

  Bossman22 commented on a few posts, basically any post that had Mike Bossy and wanted more Mike Bossy.  Since the Islanders and Bossy were my favourites as a child, I actually had one in the queue already.  Been working on a few more Bossy's to celebrate his 50 in 50 accomplishment but can't quite decide on the frame.

  If you have a player you would like to see in a 80s set, or another set I have already posted, comment below.  If it inspires me, it will likely show up on the blog at a later date.


  1. The first player I think of is Ken Daneyko. He played quite a few seasons before O-Pee-Chee gave him a card.

    1. He will be featured on a future Lost Rookies. Usually I wouldn't do it for a player who spent 20yrs with the same team but he looks so young, compared to how I remember him, in the early pics I found of him that I will do a lost rookie instead of have in a fan request post.

    2. Cool, I look forward to that Lost Rookie post!

  2. Hmmm as for Mike's 50 in 50..you may consider the 1981-82 In Action style card? Just a thought...from a guy who is obsessed with Long Island's Mr Fifty!

    1. ...even though the 81-82 set is a more accurate..see Super Action subset ..I've always enjoyed the 82-83 In Action design-wise..a pic of him scoring the famous goal might lend itself better to a landscape layout a la 81-82 but I digress..lol

  4. That's a great Skriko card. I'm glad you also did the Todd Bergen card too. I love the site and your work. I hope you keep it up.
