Joe Sakic card #155 1995-96 Topps Finest #15

  • Here's the other half of the 95-96 Finest release, card #15 in the set.  I'm curious as to why the word "Sterling" appears in the background, as the card is bronze and not silver...
  • Both this and the previous Finest card list currently for $2 apiece.  The Gretzky gold card from this set still lists 20+ years after its release for $50.  
  • Bio on the back:  "He entered the 1995-96 season third on the franchise's all-time assist list, and fourth on the all-time points list".  It certainly wasn't too much longer after this release that he was first on both of those lists, where he'll probably remain for a very long time.

  1. For a couple of years in the 90s Finest was composed of multiple subsets. Sterling was one of them.
