Joe Sakic card #142 1995-96 Upper Deck Special Edition #111

  • 1995-96 was a killer year for hockey cards for me.  Not only did my love for parallels start the year before with the Electric Ice parallels, the Special Edition cards and the Players Choice Parallel set from Collector's Choice really turned me into a junkie.
  • The Special Edition set wasn't a direct parallel per se, it was a 180 card release that came one card per hobby pack.  I never did finish it, but I still have a brick of these somewhere.  Some day....some day...
  • If you ever get a chance, do a search for the Paul Coffey version of this card.  The image of him with an octopus on the end of his stick is an image you'll not soon forget.
