Friday Customs: Mike Vernon

One of the best keepers in the league in the late 80's and early 90's, Vernon won the Cup with the Flames and Red Wings before spending time with the Sharks and Panthers.  Vernon returned to the Flames before retiring after the 2001-02 season.

Friday Customs: Jeff Reese

Reese played five games in the 1987-88 season, which did not earn him a card in 1988-89.  In the hockey card world today, it doesn't take much to get yourself on a card.  This is what Reese's rookie may have looked like back in the day if the sets were the same as they are now.
