1990-91 Upper Deck #543 Kari Takko (RC)
Finnish goalie Kari Takko spent parts of six seasons with the North Stars, playing over 30 games in three of them, but he never had a major issue card in a Minnesota uniform. There was a Panini sticker and a team issue postcard (I don't have either), but his official rookie card is this one, from his first year as a backup for the Edmonton Oilers.
