National Hockey Card Day celebrated with Bobby Hall

Player’s Choice Sportscards will have Bobby Hull and is celebrating National Hockey Card Day.

Bobby Hull, known as “The Golden Jet,” is one of the greatest players in the history of hockey.

In a storied career that lasted more than two decades, Hull tormented goaltenders with his booming slapshot and frustrated opposing defenders with his dazzling speed and stickhandling skills. His immense talents helped make him professional hockey’s first “million dollar man” when he joined the fledgling WHA’s Winnipeg Jets, and he instantly became the rival league’s greatest star. His epic career was capped off in 1983 when he was selected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Player’s Choice Sportscards is excited to announce that Bobby Hull will be celebrating National Hockey Card Day in Canada with us at the store from 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday Feb. 18. Small item autographs only $35 and larger items and specialty pieces $50.

The store will also be giving out free packs of hockey cards from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information call 250-862-2737 or check out our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/768217846688583/.
