TTM Triumph #25: Tom Reid

Huzzah! My first hockey return:


Tom Reid was an eleven year pro, splitting time between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Minnesota North Stars. Best known for being the only player to ever score a penalty goal against Ken Dryden. Currently does color work for the Minnesota Wild radio broadcasts.

Since getting my 1973-74 Topps Yvan Cournoyer autograph at one of the card shows a couple of months ago, I have been toying with the idea of trying to get as many of the cards from the set signed as possible. I think it will be a nice companion to the 1978-79 Topps and 1989-90 Hoops basketball sets that I'm already doing the same thing with. I have also started this same endeavor with the 1969 and 1972 Topps baseball sets. So far, with this hockey set I've got five cards down, two returns via the mail and three purchased.

As always, I would like to send a big thank you out to Mr. Reid.


And finally a completely random song to close out the post (especially since I forgot I was going to start doing this in the last post):



Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.

  1. Very nice. The 73-74 hockey set brings back positive childhood memories. Remember ripping many a pack .

    1. Invoking happy childhood memories is always a good thing. I think as usual, you will be the only one who looks at these posts. Do you by chance have any duplicates from this set?

    2. Yes. Many. Are you looking for anyone in particular

    3. I'm still going through the set checklist trying to find out who signs and who doesn't, but I could probably send you an email sometime this weekend with a list. And I have been acquiring some Red Sox stuff, so I should be able to send some interesting cards your way.
