I found this while going through some boxes of cards tonight......

Who IS that sauve looking flop of a #1 pick LOL Smile

1 Jumbo pack of 1993-94 Pinnacle Series 2 U.S. Edition

Here's a refresher on what the base cards look like:

Phil Housley is an underrated American defenseman. One of the best.

The Great One:

RC's:

Left to right top row: Jason Allison, Roman Oksiuta, Jason Arnott
Left to right bottom row: Maxim Bets, Kevin Hilton, Aaron Ellis

Not a bad surprise break on a Wednesday night. Wish I could find more old wax laying around the house. LOL

Boy, imagine an Alex Daigle "The Cup" or "SP Authentic FW Limited auto/patch" if they existed back in the day. Scary to think how much money would be spent...and lost over him.

And for your next trick, on to those Pro-Set packs that keep turning up, eh? You're killing me, amigo. I'll be chuckling about this for days!

Very cool find! I love seeing old stuff like this and remembering how much fun it was to break back in the day. I wholly agree with you about Housley, too! He was amazing and the fastest player in the game for a while!

I opened exactly 3 packs of hockey cards in the 90's, and this was one of them, I was 8 or 9 years old. I still have them in a binder. Thanks for sharing!
