The Daily: 1986-87 O-Pee-Chee Patrick Roy RC
The Card: 1986-87 O-Pee-Chee Patrick Roy RC #53
On February 23, 1985, the NHL got its first taste of a goaltending great. Patrick Roy coming in for Doug Soetaert in the third period may not have seemed like a huge deal at the time. That single period probably wasn’t in and of itself. But it was the beginning of a prolific playing career filled with NHL records, awards and four Stanley Cups.
Before 1986-87, the closest thing collectors have to chasing Roy is a puffy sticker in the regional 1985-86 Canadiens set. He also has a team-issued postcard from 1985-86.
