Set: 1992-93 Ultra (Rate)

Card: #83 Wayne Gretzky

“The Great One led the Kings to their only Stanley Cup Finals appearance in 1992-93. The Kings lost in the Finals to Montreal. Interestingly enough the Kings played all Canadian teams en route to the Cup Finals. They defeated Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto for the right to play for the Cup.” –Gunny

“The Great One!” –ashnsports

“Gretzky's last trip to the Stanley Cup Finals came in 92-93 with the Kings. After coming back from a 3-2 series deficit to beat the Leafs in 7 and taking the 1st game against the Habs, the Kings then ran out of gas and lost 4 straight games, giving Les Habitants their 24th Stanley Cup Championship. Gretzky finished the playoffs with 15 goals and 40 points in 24 games.” –Quintessence

“Truly and always The Great One.” –addysdaddy

“1988-89 the season Gretzky moves to Los Angeles and Messier becomes the leader of the Oilers. Gretzky's Kings beat Messier's Oilers in the Smythe Division Semifinals 4 games to 3.” –Gunny

“When you think of Canadian cardboard you think of O-Pee-Chee and when you think of great Canadian hockey players Messier is right up there. Voted into the Hall of Fame in 2007, Messier is currently working with the New York Rangers.” –cynicalbuddha

Set: 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen - Framed Bronze (Rate)

Card: #56 Mat Latos

“Topps found a new way to annoy us. "Borrow" an idea from UD Masterpieces and have different color framed borders but this time make them easily damaged in the packs and not worth really any more than the base card.” -Scott Sawyer

“Is this card declaring that Mat Latos is a Gypsy Queen?” –haogaole

“No matter how fancy Topps makes them look, they still don't quite have that vintage feel.” –addysdaddy

“This guy killed my fantasy season.” -carthage44

“Topps was originally going to parallel the entire set with Bronze and Green framed parallels, but ended up only paralleling the first 100 cards in the set.” -cynicalbuddha

Card: #164 Roger Metzger

“If there ever was a light hitting, good fielding shortstop that epitomizes the position before Ripken it is Roger Metzger. “ -Scott Sawyer

“A little perturbed at the cameraman it seems.” –addysdaddy

“1979 Topps Roger Metzger was the first card out of the first pack I ever opened in my life. Roger Metzger holds a special place in my heart.” -ashnsports

Card: #UH314 Brad Hawpe
