My Picks # 62: Shanahan / Pronger

It's been kind of slow around here with a lack of pickups lately. Add to that the nice weather and starting up another roller hockey season last week, I just haven't had the time or motivation to post anything. So, I thought it was a good time for another one of my picks. 

This one comes from the Big Deal subset that was part of 2002-03 BAP Memorabilia. This set featured trades and free agent signings both from past and present (at the time). This one in particular features the trade between Hartford and St. Louis that saw Brendan Shanahan and Chris Pronger swapping sweaters in July of 1995. 

I love the idea for this set and the design even more. I like how each player takes up almost half of the the card and the team logos are nicely displayed right behind them as well as in opposite corners. 

Here are a few more examples from the set:

As you can see, there are a lot of trades there, but some significant free agent signings are included as well (i.e. Curtis Joseph, Bobby Holik, etc). I'll have to find the checklist for this set though, as I don't know exactly how many there are. 

So what do you guys think about this set?


  1. Never seen these before, nice set.

  2. I haven't seen this set before either. I might have to try and find it now.
