Today we will start with another batch of Stephen House's 1990-91 Upper Deck McDonald style cards and then end with a tribute to some of the WHA's players on the 500th anniversary of the outlaw league's creation. The House cards feature for the most part long time NHLers but a couple are lesser lights that don't have a lot of images to work with !!
Now it's time for Doug Nicol's WHA requested creations, working on a card for every player. every team and every year if we both last long enough !! I'll start with some 72-72 and keep adding in chronological order.
Will jump to the 1975-76 year next, lots of PhotoShop involved in these.....
Last in the order we have a couple of 1976-77 and 1977-78 custom creations.
Hope you enjoy today's submission and as always if you would like to add any of these custom cards to your collection drop me an email to:

The rotating door keeps turning in Toronto so have 3 more to add to the current custom roster along with a batch of custom created Toronto autographs, after that we will go back to the first hockey card sets to finish off.
Now some Leafs autographs that I added recently, some PaperCuts from my good buddy Phil Garmun and, since nobody is returning my TTM requests, I have started buying player graph on another card and creating a Maple Leaf custom front.
To finish off today's post we are going back to the 1910-11 C56 & 1912-13 C57 hockey sets along with a few 1924-25 Champs and Wm. Paterson creations.

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" !!!
