Kolzig, Hardee's And Hot Dogs

My buddy Dave of the very funny Quiet Library sent me an Olie Kolzig hockey card from back in 1990 (the card is from 1990 - Dave sent it this week), andI had to share it. As Dave said, "Olie looks like a line-cook at Hardee's in the pic on the back." Indeed, though now that he's got me thinking about food, I'm reminded that this card isn't quite as fantastic as the one in which Olie is on the bench holding a hot dog with "Olaf" written on it in mustard.

Update: Thanks to Gustafsson from OFB, here it is. Best... hockey card... ever.

I have a Kolzig signed copy of that hot dog card. Thanks for not stealing it during the "Hockey Day in Canada" party! ;-)

BTW, here's the text on the back of the hot dog card:

"Jim Carey is going to start the majority of the Capitals' games this season, but coach Jim Schoenfeld has a lot of faith in Olaf, a five-year pro who was named the IHL's postseason MVP in '93-94."

The card is (c) 1995.

Olie used to smile more back then.

Ooh, look at that sexy little '80s mustache.

Thank God he got rid of it!

THere is a great old Pete Peters card (I believe while with the Flyers) that was obviously shot during warm ups because there was about 30 pucks in the net behind him....it is classic - does anyone have it? If so, you should scan it...very funny stuff.

I actually own both the Hardees card and the hot dog. (I do believe a picture of Olie looking like that is on the wall at Kettler - mustachio and all!)

Do you know how many packs of Olie cards I had to order off of ebay to get that one hot dog card?

Suffice it to say, if you need a scanned copy of an Olie card, let me know because I probably have it.

Email me the hot dog card and I'll post it here. Thanks.

I think the part of why that hot dog card got so big is that it was featured in WaPo when it came out.

Note on the first card the "league-leading 3.48 GAA". Ah, 80s hockey...
