The Suspendables with Jim Jerome & Russ Courtnall
Welcome to The Suspendables with funny man, Jungle Jim Jerome, and world renowned former NHL player, Russ Courtnall, as they unleash the laughs, the stories and the outrage, with their irreverent and sometimes unusual (yet compelling) perspectives on all things IN A MAN'S WORLD.
#76 HOCKEY CARDS! GOT HIM, GOT HIM, NEED HIM!
The boys remember the fun (and the cold) at the first NHL Heritage Classic. Russ was playing on Montreal’s alumni team and Jim was doing his standard Oiler gravy training. Not all NHL players love the soap operas, but Wayne Gretzky always did. Russ gives Jimmy the gears for getting dumped and his new obsession with online blackjack. A cool story – with a Leafs’ connection – about how Russ got started in real estate. With people stuck at home during the pandemic, people are renewing old hobbies. So hockey cards and other sports collectibles are making a huge comeback. Joining us to talk about it is Mark Rubin, owner of American Legends Sports Collectibles in New York. www.amerlegends.comMark even gives us the updated value of the 1986-87 O-Pee-Chee Russ Courtnall rookie card.
