Ya know, I haven't received a card in the mail for quite some time. I was surprised that this one arrived so fast when I found it in the mailbox this morning.
Picked up another Kariya to add to the player collection later last week. This card is from the annual (since cancelled) 1997-98 McDonald's Upper Deck release; "Game Film" was randomly inserted into packs, each featuring a design similar to a strip of film. As I can remember these cards were heavily sought-after back then and they still hold their value these days.
Couldn't find anything special in relation to the date printed on the card aside from the fact that the Mighty Ducks played the Vancouver Canucks that night and lost in overtime.
