1993-94 Leaf Hat Trick Artists #1 of 10 - Mario Lemieux Title Card. I first laid eyes on this card from a blog post over at Shoebox Legends; showcasing the entire set of these Leaf Hat Trick Artists cards. It was cardboard love from first sight and I just had to have it for myself. I like everything about this card; my favorite player in an unordinary photo shoot-esque pose, top hat tucked underneath his arm with an array of vintage hats lying on the ice in celebration of a hat trick hanging out there in the background. You don't see cards like this in every set.
1993-94 Leaf Hat Trick Artists #4 of 10 - Mario Lemieux. I just had to grab the base card of the Lemieux from the Hat Trick Artists set as well. A great looking card that I picked up for under a buck; to be honest all the photo shots from this insert lot look great and worth trying to put together.
1984-85 Topps #51 - Wayne Gretzky. I think I was still on my Gretzky kick at the time and liked the look of this card and really wanted it as part of my collection. On checkoutmycards I was happily able to purchase it at a very low price.
