1991-92 Score #402 — Guy LaFleur

91-92 Pro Set Lafleur

I’ve always been fascinating by the trend of painted insert cards during the early-90s. Donruss had their Ice Kings and Upper Deck featured one per team through their first four sets. Some look good while others are a mess. What I didn’t know until recently was that Score tried a few of their own: to commerate Gretzy’s 2000th point, their “Dream Team”, and Guy LaFleur’s final season. I’m mostly posting this just because I’ve never seen them (there’s three) on any blogs before. I’m not sure of the painter–I’m away from my cards right now–but they’re a little nicer looking than Upper Deck’s. More on that soon…


1990-91 O-Pee-Chee #142 — Guy Lafleur

90-91 OPC Lafleur

It seems that recently, every other post is of a Whaler or Nordique but I really wanted to do a quick, in between holidays post and I’ve been meaning to feature this card. Also, is it just me, or does Guy sort of look like Will Arnett in this picture?
