“ that face tho ” -TradingCards964

“ Really like Pro Set, wish they lasted longer than they did. They got it right. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ I can't say enough how much I loved Pro Set. ” -muskie027

“ A decent card with a nice action shot and well-placed logos. I'd prefer the lower name banner to extend all the way across and to include the player's position. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Really nice card. It's one of those that seems like it's come up before on RCOTD, but maybe a parallel or a different set with similar setup. ” -kents_stuff

“ I have a signed copy of this card (well, the English version) that turned up in a barrel of clothes at the second-hand clothing store my Mom used to own. No way to confirm that it was really Bourque who signed it, but it does look like his signature. ” -bevans

“ Pro Set was only around for a few years but I loved them! ” -carthage44

“ First thing to check on a Pro Set card...how many variations are there???? ” -IndyBean17

“ the set that got me interested in hockey cards. ” -parsley24

“ One of the best defensemen in my lifetime, was very glad to see him win a Cup while with the Avalanche. ” -rmitchell6700

“ I don't mind this design. Nice picture actually. Notice the awful 90's hair in the stands. ” -IfbBirdsCards

Hey, I think I have this card. That would be the 2nd RCOTD this week that I own (along with the Star Trek card). For the 90's, that was a nice design - front and back.

One nice thing about Pro Set, the large sets included every player.


Someday my cards may double in value and then be worth half of what I paid for them.

I didn’t really collect any of the Pro Set cards when they came out but have picked up several over the years. I should be fluent in French now after looking at all of the backs to see what version I had.

I always assumed Bourque was your favorite, just based on your handle.

For me these sets are the defenition of overproduction. Yes it introduced tons of people to collecting but at the same time once I found out there were nicer cards like UD and Score. I was like "Man do these cards blow goats!" =O
