One of the Miracle Men

On and off we see insert sets within NHL hockey sets which have an international (or national) patriotic theme to them. I can think of a couple base subset examples too thinking back to early 90s Parkhurst for an example.

I can get behind such inserts, even if not Canadian in nature. Today's highlight is an example of such.


This insert out of Legendary Signatures is from the Miracle Men insert set (as it says on the card). As the name suggests, I think these cards are well set up to be signed, but even without, a decently different design as a "normal" card. As for what this set highlights - the miracle men of 1980 which won Olympic gold for the US team.

The rest

The Rookie Update cards out of 2002-03 are both printing error cards I will keep as the card backs are slightly off and you can see the back of the card beside for a few millimeters.
