1991-92 Upper Deck #271 Dirk Graham
Well, not really. As I wrote when I created the Dirk Graham fan page on Facebook, he was one of my favorite North Stars when I was a kid, and I was upset when he was dealt to our arch-rivals for Curt Fraser. Looking back on the trade over 20 years later, I'm even more pissed. Fraser was a complete bust for us. Meanwhile, Graham wore the captain's "C" in Chicago for several years, won a Selke Trophy, and helped lead the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Surprisingly, this was the only Graham card I found in my initial sweep through my old hockey cards. Finding some North Stars cards of his is a definite priority.
