1997-98 UD Collector's Choice
Wow! Didn't Upper Deck think that that creepy looking guy on the boards staring directly at you might b a little scary? I guess not, I mean it's not "must have" photo of Linden they could have picked another picture of him turning with the puck. Well at least I got the ugly card out of the way and we can get to the good stuff.
1997-98 Pinnacle Omega Silks
The name pretty much says it all. Pretty neat thing to have because I've never seen it before. They were inserted into packs at a rate of 1:72, so it's not a bad pull.

1998-99 SpX Finite
It's really unfortunate these cards didn't come out well, because I really like these cards! The scan does not do them justice. Here are each cards stats...
TL: Pavel Bure - Marquee Performer /2625
TR: Mattius Ohlund RC - Sure Shot /3900
ML: Pavel Bure - Global Impact /6950
MR: Garth Snow - /9500
BL: Todd Beruzzi (x3) - /9500
BR: Markus Naslund - /9500
They are numbered pretty high, but I love the idea of the rink or whatever it may be popping out of the card. I really like this set and might pursue trying to complete it.

MATTIUS OHLUND RC
1998-99 Black Diamond /1000
I found my purchase contained a lot of Ohlund rookies, but this one has to be my favorite. I'm not a fan of the Black Diamond set from that year, but the gold all over the card makes up for it.

1999-00 Dynagon Ice Blue /67
As you can see in the top left hand corner the card is numbered to /67, and any card numbered under /100 is alright in my books. I like everything about the front of the card, not the back. Nonetheless, it's a nice Nazzy pick up.
