“ I prefer team cards to be more than just a team checklist, but at least the artwork was nice on these early UD ones. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I miss these cards so much. ” -IndyBean17

“ If this isn't my all-time favorite hockey set, it is definitely top 5. This set was awesome, from the bright white cards with the great hockey photos, to the awesome black package wrapping. I loved the art on the team checklist cards. This set was just all-time great! ” -muskie027

“ The Upper Deck checklist cards from this era are probably the nicest and most collectable checklists ever produced. Still love my 1989 UD Canseco As checklist. ” -tbshaw

“ Did not like these checklists with drawings on front. ” -NJDevils

“ Red Sun? ” -carthage44

“ Beautiful checklist cards that highlight team leaders on the front. Surely this has become the bar others are measured to. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Classis Upper Deck ” -kirkscards

“ Cool Nordiques card. I love cards of defunct teams, and always hope those cities eventually get a new team with that same name (without stealing a team from another city!) ” -switzr1

“ Loved the Collector's Choice checklists as a kid, and I love them now! It looks like they didn't credit the artist on the backs for the first edition. ” -DanD

“ One of the very best, classy guy . I really like this set , this was before U.D. thought more was better. ” -uncaian

“ As much as I think the early Upper Deck sets are boringly dull I have always liked these Team Checklist portrait cards. ” -captkirk42

It doesn't matter what sport for the CL card, those early UD CL's really nailed it. If there isn't going to be a team photo, a drawing/painting of a star player is the way I would go. I still love these early 90's UD CL's and wouldn't change anything about them. The designs were nice and clean without a bunch of busy-ness in the design. Simple and to-the-point is exactly what a checklist should be. Team-specific is also what I like to see on a checklist!

Seems as thought everyone liked this checklist except me.   I want a  checklist to be simply that, a checklist, front and back.     Guess that makes me really old school  and I am very happy with that.

Sorry I missed this card, it is one my favorite Sakic cards of all time. 

The first UD Hockey set is fantastic and the Sakic checklist starts off the team checklist run...
