Joe Sakic card #205 1996-97 Bicycle Aces #NNO

  • You don't really see sets like this anymore.  Decks of cards featuring player likenesses were released regularly for a while, but I haven't seen any for a few years.   I may not be looking in the right places though...
  • I'm a lot more observant now.  For some reason, I never noticed the Conn Smythe Winner designation until now in the lower left hand side of the card.  It certainly is big enough, so I guess I'm just more observant now.
  • Thin and flat, this was very difficult to get off the scanner.  
  • The other aces in this set?  Clubs:  Gretzky.  Hearts:  Roy.  Spades:  Lemieux.  Pretty good company indeed.
