It was odd yet pleasing to find a box of 1997-98 Donruss Priority sitting on a shelf at Wal-Mart a few days ago. They tend to sell some very random hockey card stuff.
I only had a few of these as a kid, I'm pretty sure I have a couple of Opening Day Issues postcards from those days but that's about it. They were short-printer at 1000 cards.
There's also a parallel version of each card from the base set titled Stamp Of Approval numbered out of 100 per card in the 220 card set. The cards are die-cut like a stamp and stamped on the front, serial number on the back. Pulling a Gretzky parallel would be the highlight card from these parallels (in my opinion) but scoring one of these can be a little difficult.
I got this great looking card of Patrick Roy! Very happy, the subset looks very nice with the stamp ridges included. It was a fantastic way to end my NHL mailbox break.
And yes, that is Santa Claus that you see peeking behind the mailbox. Haha we put our tree up a little earlier than usual this year.
