The Florida Panthers have been on fire this season, and one of the big reasons is their free-agent signing of Anthony Duclair before the 2020-21 season. He had shown signs of brilliance in the past, but was never put in the right situation, or the previous coaches tried to make him into something he wasn't. Not the case in Sunrise and honestly, I would not be surprised to see his name on the Stanley Cup in a few months with the way they have been playing.

Black History Month Spotlight: Anthony Duclair
Tuesday, February 22, 2022
Poops guardian de buts
I saw this card posted on one of the other blogs as a "card of the day" and I absolutely had to have one...how could I not get a card with Poops on it multiple times?
I laughed hysterically when I learned his name was pronounced "Poopa" but this was even better.
And of course goaltender being "guardian de buts" in French makes it all even better!
I just got it in the mail from ebay and scanned it right away...so much fun. I think this may be my "card of the month" for February in fact.

Black History Month: Updates on P.K. Subban and Jarome Iginla collections
Last year I posted two Black History Month Spotlights, one on P.K. Subban and one on Jarome Iginla. I mentioned doing updates on their collection and I didn't quite plan on how the rest of the year would go, not expecting to both reinjure my arm AND bring in less cards in 2021 than I have in all of the time I've written Cardboard History. So, I don't have a single new scan to show for either player.
What I DID do was figure out exactly what I have in my collection for the entire sport of hockey, since I could type when I couldn't scan...so, for the first time, I know exactly what I have for each person.
So, I know now that I have 38 P.K. Subban cards, of which 32 have been scanned. My oldest of him is the 2011-12 Score card that appears in his original Black History Month Spotlight last year.
Of the 38 cards, 23 are base, 6 are parallels, 2 are inserts, 3 are parallels of inserts, 2 are promos, and 2 are promo inserts. 2 of the above cards are Serially Numbered. I do not have any "hits" for him yet.
Moving to Jarome Iginla, I now know that I have 40 cards of him, but only 22 have been scanned. A couple of them are in the "Damaged - to replace" box which I don't plan to scan until I can replace them. Of the 40, the oldest is a 3-way tie from the 1997-98 season, none of which have been scanned, one of which I got at Christmas. The newest is from 2016-17. 26 are base cards, 3 are parallels, 1 is a second-level parallel, 6 are inserts and 4 are promos. 4 of the above cards are serially numbered. Like P.K. I do not have a "hit" for him, either.

Thank you for reading!
