Joe Sakic card #99 1994-95 Select #62

  • Believe it or not, the foil at the bottom of the card is actually gold, not silver as the scan makes it out to be.  
  • The player checking Sakic is unfortunately obscured enough by Sakic that he can't positively be identified.  We can tell that the player shoots left, and has the #4 as one of the numbers on his jersey.  Unfortunately, there were 3 Lightning players that shoot left and had the #4 as part of their uniform (Cory Cross, Mikael Andersson and Roman Hamrlik).  
  • Bio on the back:  "One of hockey's best playmakers, he heads a diverse group of Quebec centers that includes Mike Ricci, Peter Forsberg, Bob Bassen and Claude Lapointe."  No wonder they won a Stanley Cup a couple of years later.
