And one of my favorite sets from that time period is the 1990-91 OPC Premier hockey set. The design and rookie card checklist made this one of the most popular hockey sets of the Junk Wax Era. I'm pretty sure I spent around $5/pack for these cards in search of Jaromir Jagr and Sergei Fedorov rookie cards:
The checklist also includes rookie cards of Mike Modano, Jeremy Roenick, and Mats Sundin:
And thanks to Shane over at Shoebox Legends, I am now the proud owner of this iconic set. Last week, he wrote a post on his blog about this set. I left a comment stating that I needed to pick up this set for my collection and he offered to send one my way... no strings attached.
Well Shane... Fuji (don't you love it when people talk about themselves in the third person?) don't play that. I've picked up a few Red Sox cards that hopefully you'll be able to use. They should be in the mail no later than Tuesday.
Thanks again for the set. I'm so excited to add it to my collection.
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
