Awesomest Hockey Card I Own!

We don't keep up with hockey much in our household. When the Stars first came to town I was into them a lot more and during their Stanley Cup season I saw the majority of their games, but I just don't have that much free time these days, so hockey is a little ways down the list. When Goose was very small (like 4 or 5) he wanted to play hockey very badly, but we didn't let him because it was too expensive. We put him into soccer instead and now we pay just as much for him to play big time soccer as we would have to for hockey! Oh well. During his early years of hockey love, we collected hockey cards for a little while. That's when we picked up this beauty!

Ooohh, look how shiny and swirly it is! Awesome, right? This card features the greatest Star ever of course, Mike Modano. I still can't get used to seeing him in a Red Wings sweater. It would have been nice if he could have retired as a Dallas Star.
Pacific sure made some cool cards back in the day. These Revolution ones are some of the neatest in my opinion. I've also got an Elway one that is very similar that is one of my favorites. Maybe Panini will bring back this set like they did with Crown Royale and do it up right. (Though I won't be holding my breath. Panini and do it up right, don't always go hand in hand.) Later.

  1. I hated this design when they first came out... however... the old Pacific designs (especially Crown Royale) have been growing on me as of late. By the way... I'm totally with you about Modano retiring as a Star. I love seeing players stick with one team their whole career.
