1982 Topps Stickers

A quick post before tonight’s Bruins/Capitals Game 7. The B’s have won five straight elimination games dating back to last year (!) so hopefully they keep the streak going. Both these stickers are from the inaugural set Topps put out in 1982-83. Plenty of more information here.

#90 — Brad McCrimmon

Both these stickers have a nasty diamond cut.

Love the Topps logo, especially when it’s tilted like that.

McCrimmon played 16 seasons in the NHL. He started here in Boston and went on to be an all-star in Calgary and won the Plus-Minus Award in 1988. Sadly, he passed away last year as he was onboard for the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl air disaster.

#262 — NHL Leader Rick Middleton

Middleton was a beast for the Bruins in the seventies and eighties. He won a Lady Bing Trophy, twice reached the Stanley Cup Finals, and captained the team from 1985 until his retirement in 1988. He worked for NESN doing post-game reports until 2007. He was also a Providence Red. (!!)

May Milan Lucic get a Gordie Howe hat-trick tonight and we have at least another two weeks of hockey.
