Alex Tanguay Jersey Card
I wrote about another Alex Tanguay jersey card two and a half years ago, when he had just returned to the Calgary Flames. Since then, he's had a 22-goal, 69-point campaign in 2010-11 (in 79 games), and 49 points in 64 games last year. He has also scored a goal so far tonight.
He is three assists short of 500 in his career, and has 59 points in 98 career playoff games - and I predicted that the Flames would make them this year, so I'm guessing he'll be adding to that total. With the Flames, he's 1-7-8 in 13 playoff games.
This card (#FF-AT in the series) is from Upper Deck's 2005-06 Ice set, one I eagerly await every year. It and Artifacts are the two best-looking hockey sets ever made, and improve each year. The white jersey swatch is guaranteed to have been used in an NHL game.
