Merry Xmas to all and may 2023 be kind to you and yours, Kingsley.
I am a lifelong Maple Leaf fan, now retired, who started creating custom cards for myself of Toronto players who never had a card issued in the Maple Leaf uniform. From posting some of these on eBay it has become the proverbial "snowball down hill" !!!
