Mail Day! 1996-97 Upper Deck Post Cereal "Grow Like A Pro"

I recently made a $3.00 eBay bid for (and obviously won) a 1996-97 Upper Deck/Post Cereal (Canadian Food Issue) "Grow Like A Pro" 24-Card Set.  The cards feature an NHL player wearing his NHLPA uniform on the front and a childhood photo of the player on the back.  I previously had only owned two of these cards from the set (Lindros & Yashin) from when I collected cards as a kid; I've always liked them, wanted more and enjoyed the inclusion of the childhood photos on the back.

Wayne Gretzky
Patrick Roy
Ray Bourque
Joe Sakic

Doug Gilmour
Chris Chelios

Alexi Yashin - The only European born player to be featured in the set.

Eric Lidros

Scott Stevens
Vincent Damphousse

Mark Recchi - Recchi's childhood photo is my favorite.

Jeremy Roenick

Brendan Shanahan
Theoren Fleury

Curtis Joseph - Joseph's photo looks like it came straight from "Dazed and Confused".

Al Macinnis

Luc Robitaille
Paul Coffey
John Vanbiesbrouck
Mathieu Schneider

Ed Jovanovski
Steve Duchesne
Paul Kariya

  1. Cool, never heard of these. I agree with you, Recchi's childhood photo is funny stuff.
