|1995-96 Topps Power Lines #4PL Patrick Poulin/ Jeremy Roenick/ Tony Amonte|
If you didn't know it, Jeremy Roenick was my favorite player as a teen. I'm slowly piecing back together a PC of him (Blackhawks cards only). I know that the term "super collector" has been a thing over the past decade or so. I hadn't heard it before, though I guess you can say that I was one as far back as my teen years. When Roenick was traded from the Blackhawks, I had almost every card produced of his that I knew of (bear in mind, this was pre-internet), as well as all of his Starting Lineup Figures and a couple of autographs.
|1994-95 Upper Deck Predictor Canadian #C19 Jeremy Roenick|
I miss Predictor and You Crash the Game cards. To me, they were the original "interactive" cards. They are one of the things that Upper Deck created that changed the hobby. I don't understand why they don't exist any longer. Their MVP brand would be perfect for them. It's a low-retail set and it comes out before the season starts. What a great way to get kids interested in both the cards and the game of hockey itself. What do I know, though?
My favorite thing about this card is the red border. Anything Blackhawks with a black or red border is just beauty!

|1996-97 Collector's Choice Crash The Game #C20C Eric Daze|
The only three seasons he was able to play at least 80 games, he scored 30 goals in each (including a 38 goal season). What could have been. For his career, he scored 226 goals in 601 games. That averages out to 31 goals per 82 game season.
Also included in the package were nine cards from 2017 Gypsy Queen for my set. He even included the Mike Trout! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Thank you for the cards, Robert. I already have some ready for you that will be on the way soon!
