Joe Sakic card #219 1997-98 Upper Deck #253

  • Love this design.  Nothing flashy, solid photography as always by Upper Deck.  Horizontal layout I believe helps the card.
  • Seeing the "Sakic enjoys a record night against the Oilers" on the front made the stat geek in me look up that night.  6 points, 1 goal and 5 assists with a +4 rating.  The only Avs goal that Joe wasn't a part of that night was the final one as the Oilers were blown out 7-2 in the old McNichols Sports Arena in Denver.
  • Saw the numbers "950" on the boards in the background, figured it was an AM radio station.  Sure enough it's KKSE, Altitude Sports Radio in Denver.  With the way that radio stations change formats, it's pretty cool to see that the same radio station is still broadcasting Avalanche games 20 years later.
