In the CARDS

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

ONE OF JONATHAN TOEWS’ ear­li­est cards is also one of his tough­est to find. On March 5, 2008, a pack of five spe­cial trad­ing cards was given away to fans who at­tended a Black­hawks-Ducks game that night. How­ever, a sixth card pic­tur­ing Toews, who was then still a rookie, was avail­able only if you made a pur­chase at the Black­hawks’ store at the United Cen­ter dur­ing the game. Fans didn’t know about this un­less they first opened the pack and no­ticed the spe­cial of­fer note – most didn’t – mak­ing this odd­ball Toews’ card the rarest in the set.
