You're the Goal I'm After

This is one of my favorite Valentine cards from my collection. This beautifully crafted card is unique because the upper part of the hockey player's body as well as the hockey stick move. There is a tiny metal rivet located in the boy's right hand.

The card was published in Canada most likely sometime in the late 1920's. I just love the old skates and uniform--back then there seemed to be hardly any padding for protection!

When I grew up, we didn't have a TV. When we went to visit my Grandparents, we got to go to the neighbor's house to watch. They were fifteen miles from the Canadian border, and the best reception was CJLH TV out of Lethbridge, Alberta Canada. I knew the rules for two sports - Hockey and Curling. I never saw a football, baseball or basketball game or even any Winter Sports until I was in the Navy and stationed at the Hospital in San Diego. And I didn't watch the Superbowl either. ;o)
