Future Watch: Victor Soderstrom Hockey Cards, Arizona Coyotes – Victor Soderstrom was drafted by the Arizona Coyotes with the 11th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft. This slick skating defenseman is special. He might not get talked about enough, but he should play in the NHL this season, barring injury, and he has carved a fast path to the desert.
Hobby Outposts from the North: Boxers Wanted(?) – When sports card history looks back at 2020, it will naturally see the resurgence of the hobby, with one of the key aspects being the growth not only of population, but licenses as well.
Of late, the PGA announced its return to card shops while Formula 1 has its first-ever agreement in place. There are constant rumors swirling that other licenses will be announced, possibly before the end of the year. There are still some sports and entertainment properties out there that don’t have a card pact yet. The one that has not been talked about, yet could very easily have a product come together rather quickly, is boxing.
Future Watch Special Edition: Diego Maradona Soccer Cards, Argentina – You cannot learn soccer history without learning about Diego Maradona. The Argentine was simply the most electric player on the ball the game has ever known. Not tall (5’5”) but powerful and magnetic with the football on his beyond-this-world class left foot, Maradona played with a joy and passion and with a fire to win. He is known even to those who are not fans of soccer, in part due to his play on a goal against England in the 1986 World Cup, famously known as “The Hand of God”.
