Recently, I made a significant purchase for my Pittsburgh Penguins Collection. I found a seller who was unloading a bunch of Penguins cards, and when I combined an itchy trigger finger along with a lack of Ebay self-control, I found myself the new owner of 16 phenomenal cards of Pittsburgh Penguins Players. I didn't want to just unload them all on one post, so I decided to stretch it out to 14, mostly just because I wanted to use the word "fortnight" in the title.
Anyway, here's today's "Fortnight" card:
2011-12 The Cup Ron Francis/Paul Coffey Dual Stanley Cup Signatures 7/25
Hey, here's an awesome card, autographed by two hall-of-famers, who won Stanley Cups with my favorite team! Both Francis and Coffey were a part of the Penguins' 1991 Stanley Cup win, and Francis was on the team the following season for the team's second Cup. Coffey was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in the 1991-92 season, but he had already had won three Stanley Cups with the Edmonton Oilers in 1984, 1985, and 1987. There are six Stanley Cups between the two players, but it's cool to have a card that recognizes the one season the stars aligned to have them win one together.
