Joe Sakic card #201 1996-97 Leaf Preferred Steel Power #1

  • Pretty sharp looking card, love the lightning bolts which are actually die cut and not just foil on the card.  It's a little hard to see, but the lower right hand corner commemorates his 51 goals from the previous season.  
  • Card is serial #'d 2355/2500 which back then was somewhat limited.  Now for a lot of sets, that's more of a base parallel (a la Topps Gold parallels).
  • Bio on the back:  Joe got off to a great start in the 95-96 season, winning Player of the Week honors for the week ending 10/21/96.  That included a 6 point effort against the Oilers (1G, 5A).
