In the 1986-87 hockey season, Kraft gave away some of the most beautiful hockey cards you will ever see inside packages of Kraft Dinner. I believe they were only available in Canada, with 10 cards from the 7 Canadian teams of the time, including Winnipeg and Quebec.
Here's a look at four of the cards from the Edmonton Oilers set:
I am going to give these four cards away. Here's how you can win them.
My small northern BC town is one of the finalists for Hockeyville. Terrace is Hockeyville needs your votes. We do not have the population to ensure our own bid, so I am asking for out of town support.
I need you to go to www.cbc.ca/sports/hockeyville and vote for Terrace many, many times! Once you do, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell me how many times you voted for Terrace is Hockeyville! We will have to on the honor system here, but the person who I believe actually voted the most times for Terrace Is Hockeyville will get these four cards pictured above.
We only have until 9PM EST on Sunday, January 18th to get Terrace into the top five. I will announce the winners of the cards on Monday, January 19th.
Further, I found three other Kraft cards I found. I will give them away randomly to those who do email me with their a minimum 10 votes. The three additional cards depict Sergio Momesso (Montreal), Jim Peplinksi (Calgary) and Russ Courtnall (Toronto).
It's time to vote Terrace for Hockeyville!
