IN THE CARDS

The Hockey News - - Buzz - – SAL BARRY OF PUCKJUNK.COM

Tony McKeg­ney was traded seven times and played for seven dif­fer­ent teams in his NHL ca­reer, but nei­ther of those are a record; Mike Sillinger holds the honor for both of those marks. How­ever, McKeg­ney does have the unofficial record for hav­ing the most hockey cards crudely al­tered to re­flect his trades. His 1983-84, 1987-88 and 1989-90 cards all use close-up pho­tos that have been hastily painted over with the col­ors of his new team. Amaz­ingly, who­ever touched up the photo on his Blues card over­looked the Rangers hel­met sticker.
