A Winnipeg Blue Bombers History Thread

It’s an ebay exclusive as far as I can tell. Several of these sold on there throughout the year.
The seller listed 4 of them a week or so before the Grey Cup game & they were all gone in less than 24 hours. I got these signed the Saturday after the game.
It’s a well-done, high gloss card, the design is taken from 1987 Topps football.

Another Strev parade hi-light — hopefully the guy kept the beer can as a souvenir.

The Grey Cup is a beautiful trophy. It's actually nicer looking than the Stanley Cup.

Late additions.

Darby was named a Western All-Star in 2021 and "The Matador" went 5-for-5 when it mattered most.

In one of those articles Andrew Harris said that he wouldn’t hold a grudge. That’s something I guess. Sad to see otherwise.

Have you picked up any of the Crown Brands recently?

:question:

No, none of those lately.
With the Crown Brands, I have all of the Bombers, three Stampeders, one Roughrider & zero Esks.
My biggest recent score was the Calvin Jones 1956 Parkhurst card. The impossible, 10-year crusade finally came to an end. I’ll post about it in the cards thread sometime soon.

Ploen played safely while Van Pelt was in Wpg. As good as Kenny was, '56 Rose Bowl winning QB, MVP… he couldn’t really dislodge Van.
Great memories and great teams. Kenny stated that the Bombers were a close knit family and for somebody new to crack the lineup was next to impossible… no free agency, one year or bridge deals so
dynasties could be built. Wpg and Hamilton … great but ugly football.
Remember Herb Grey smacking leather with Barrows and Moska. You could actually hear it in the stands.
