Show Pickup: Ed Belfour 1987-88 Coca-Cola Chicago Blackhawks Team Issue

This oversized card was another random find at a postcard show.  I didn’t know anything about it when I made the purchase, but at the price I was fine with the “gamble.”

Ed Belfour was the goalie on the Blackhawks teams of my youth.  This card was released three years before his mainstream rookies.  I reached out to Sal from PuckJunk.com for some info on the card and he led me in the right direction.

I can’t find any Befours on eBay for sale or in sales history.  Only a couple of “commons” have sales history and sold for $3 each.  The entire set goes for around $10.  Beckett book value on the Belfour is $10 (commons at $.50).

I’m pretty happy with this pickup.  I may pick up one of the sets soon and see if I can have some TTM autograph success with them.
