1990-91 Topps #305 Minnesota North Stars
I just received the 1990-91 Topps North Stars team set in the mail today. It's kind of amazing, but I never really picked up any cards from this set when I was a kid. 1990 was the year that the hockey card market expanded from Topps/O-Pee-Chee to include Pro Set, Score, and Upper Deck (as well as OPC Premier). I guess that in all the excitement over the new brands, I must have decided to ignore Topps that year. Looking back, that's kind of a shame. The design was definitely more pleasing than that season's Pro Set and Score sets, at least.
