It was simple. All you did was make sure your mom bought only York peanut butter in 1961. Several jars if she had extra money, which usually wasn’t the case in our family. Then you pried off the inside of the cap and presto, you’ve got yourself another hockey card to fit in your little album.
There were 42 cards in that 1961-62 set, and although I once had both the cards and album, I don’t anymore. There were just sometimes in life when you couldn’t keep an eye on mom and eventually, things got tossed. I’ve seen these sets at auctions from time to time, but I’ve let them slide. Sometimes you can’t always get what you want, and I’ve told myself that I don’t need these now. And I decided this without professional help.
