Joe Sakic card #132 1995-96 Bowman Bowman's Best #BB11

  • Whoops!  Forgot to hit publish on last night's post, so it's going to look like you got double dipped today.
  • One of the best silver background cards to scan so far, I really like how this card came out.  The Avalanche logo in the background looks really sharp in silver.
  • Bio on the back:  "The Nordiques made the playoffs for only the second time in Joe's career in 1995, and he promptly celebrated by scoring a hat trick in Game 1 on May 6th as Quebec opened the ECQF with a 5-4 victory."
  • Unfortunately the Nordiques wound up losing that series 4 games to 2 against the Rangers.  The following season is where the Nordiques/Avalanche won the Cup.

  1. First time I've seen the set...very nice! I've always liked cards that use the Finest of Chrome technology...even though they usually scan poorly.
