Set: 1990-91 Score American (Rate)

Card: #125 Denis Savard

“ Although this card still lists Denis as a Blackhawk the back does mention that in the summer 1990 he was traded to Montreal Canadiens. The Blackhawks got defenseman Chris Chelios in return. ” -Gunny

“ I wonder if Savard posed for that hockey player on the bottom right of the card? ” -bigsmooth

“ I never understood why it was necessary to make the exact same card in 2 languages. If you're going to do it in 2 languages, make 2 different cards! ” -suomibear8

“ A great card of a Hockey Hall-of-Famer. ” -jlaz10

“ Good photo size, but a pretty boring design for the border. ” -wamk

“ Denis Savard always managed be open on offense and equally far away from his man on defense. In this card you can barely see the stick and glove hand of the guy he is supposed to be covering 30ft away. ” -Mark G.
