Joe Sakic card #50 1992-93 Upper Deck World Junior Grads #WG8

  • 3 and a half months in and finally hitting the 50th card for Joe Sakic.  Which means I'm about 10% complete.  So, there's a long way to go.  
  • Joe only played in 1 World Junior tournament.  He scored 3 goals and an assist in the 87-88 tournament in Piestany, Czechoslovakia.  For those hockey fans out there, you may remember this tournament as the punch up in Piestany, a bench clearing brawl during the team's final game which got both the Canadian and Russian teams disqualified from the tournament.  
  • Card still lists for $5 in Beckett.  Some other great names in this set such as Gretzky, Lemieux and Yzerman.  Couldn't find any copies on COMC for sale, but there were a couple of ebay auctions for $3-4.
