Pack Rip – 1991 Topps Stadium Club Hockey

These aren’t anything special, but I wanted to rip a pack tonight, and this was the only sealed pack I had on me at the time.

When these came out, they had one thing going for them.  And that was the Kodak “Imaging Technology”.  The technology used for these cards basically made these cards photo-quality.  I had started collecting hockey cards about 2 years earlier, and at the time these were released, I would buy packs of any new hockey cards when I would see them.  And I bought plenty of packs of these!

This is a card that was in every pack of these cards, and I’ve always thought it was pretty funny.

By todays standards, these seem really dull.  Dave Andreychuck is the star of this group.  Tim Kerr wasn’t too shabby either.  When I was a kid John Ogrodnick was a favorite of mine, just because I thought it was fun to say his name(it still is!).

On the back of the cards, we see the Topps rookie card of the palyer depicted on the card.  This is a neat concept, especially for kids who were younger.  Like myself at the time.  As they are today, rookie cards of the stars were always popular, so this was helpful.

And I’ll end this psot with my favorite 3 cards of the pack.

Mats Sundin is onviously the best card in the pack, but that’s not the reason why he’s one of my favorites from the pack.  It’s for the Nordiques jersey.  The same goes for the other 2 cards.  I am still a fan of the old-school teams and jerseys, from the 80’s and 90’s.  Seeing these old jerseys takes me back.

  1. I love how the first couple Stadium Club sets had a picture of the player’s rookie card on the back. It’s too bad it’s always their Topps rookie instead of O-Pee-Chee; some guys like Messier had OPC cards for a few years before they finally and the Topps set.

    Great site! And thanks for the link, I’ll add you to my blogroll.

    • That was definitely a cool addition to cards back in the day. I don’t think anything like it has been done since. But cards are a totally different animal these days.

      And thanks for adding me!
