1991-92 Upper Deck #271 Dirk Graham

What?  A Chicago Blackhawks card on a North Stars page?  Blasphemy!

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.
