I don't think it is really worth that much but for a collector who knows.

If yes, we can expect him to change by then end of the day...
That was the number at the Forum. It's not Gainey's number... which I happen to have called before.

Probably from the 1970s rather than the 60s.

Style is one indicator. Use of French predominates and there's telex number as well as postal code, all 70s developments.

Wonder what a taped phone interview about softball is worth if an unsigned business card is worth $250

Funny I looked on the page and this caught my eye. I just gave my completed book to my son to look at. I'm sure he'll wreck it.

He works(ed) at the store in the Bell center. I'm sure that at some point, he was asked to contact Gainey's office to get some memorabilia signed or something like that.

Was actually to leave a message telling him a jersey was ready, and was brought to the locker room.

Then aren't you an idiot for NOT doing that?

No you can't and to claim otherwise shows some ignorance. There are things about that card that cannot be reproduced in a few minutes or even weeks of work.

Otherwise vintage card collectors would be spending thousands of dollars every day on worthless cardboard.

They do but that's an entirely different story

The postal code gave it away to me. Six digit postal codes were introduced here between 1972 to 1974.

I still have a neat looking book of matches I picked up at the Forum bar in '78. It has 77 - 78 Stanley Cup Champs written on the back and a Habs logo on a red field in the front. Blue match heads inside
