My Picks # 17: Pat LaFontaine

This pick is also from the 1995-96 season, its a Topps Marquee Men Power Boosters featuring Pat LaFontaine of the Buffalo Sabres. The 1995-96 Topps set is special to me because it was the first ever box of cards I received.

This set has a unique look to it, as the entire card is made to look like a marquee, hence the name of the set. There were also regular versions of the Marquee Men cards, the only difference being the holographic effect.

The overall design in fairly simple, with text for the player name, the set name and the Topps logo. Its nice to see so much open space on a card. I also like the font chosen for the player names, it may be a little hard to read but it still looks cool.
