TTM Triumph: Nick Libett

I wanted to take a break today from all the recent basketball successes, and instead, show off a nice hockey return:

A twelve year veteran in the NHL, Mr. Libett is considered by most, to be one of best two way left wingers in Red Wings' history. Always a durable player, he led the league in games played four times. The former Detroit captain was also revered for his toughness, always being ready to throw down when necessary. An All-Star in 1977, he would play ten years in Detroit and two more with Pittsburgh before retiring in 1981. Nick finished is playing days with 237 goals and 268 assists, scoring 505 total points.

As always, I would like to send a big thank you out to Mr. Libett for taking the time to sign my card.


Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.

  1. Remember Liberty well with some battles against the B's in the early 70's. Love this hockey set. Completed this as a kid

    1. I too love this set, I'm still trying to figure out if I want to try and get as many signed as possible and just collect it that way, or just collect it the normal way (i.e. unsigned). So far, I've acquired exactly four cards from the set, and I have gotten all four of them signed.
