Lanny McDonald Jersey Card


I don't have much to add after writing about Lanny McDonald merely five months ago, but as I am classifying my valuable cards in binders, alphabetically, I've run across this minuscule game-worn swatch from Upper Deck's 2008-09 Champ's set (card #CT-LM, Mini Threads sub-set).

It shows him wearing the Toronto Maple Leafs' uniform, although I remember him mostly as a member of the Calgary Flames myself. I do understand, however, that you can't deny 7 seasons in a career, particularly three 40-goal seasons, and four 85-plus-point seasons. But, you know: the Leafs. Urgh.

He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992.
