I will admit that I sometimes take things for granted. Especially when it comes to ripping cards. I no longer have the luxury of time that I had as a kid to sit down and read the back of each card. I have reached a point where I even despise getting base cards. Every now and then I come across a nice looking card and I will stop right away. I scan the card visually and flip it over wondering what is on the back. Well ITG Enforcers was one of those cards that I made me stop more than a few times while sorting the cards into my binders or whatnot. My favorite player is Wendel Clark and I stopped on this particular card you will see below. In the game did a really good job of the writing for these cards. Very well done Dr. Price. What was even more striking is that I started to look up some of the fights and the artist did a very good job of capturing a pivotal moment in the fight. Another job well done.
As with any research that is done on cards, I have to mention the bias towards the experiment or lab results. I am a big fan of the enforcers in the game of hockey. Naturally I would stare longer at these cards that other sets. For those of you who are not sure what I am trying to get at, I will use this analogy. The inspiration of this analogy comes from the movie “A Beautiful Mind”. Keep in mind I said inspiration, it has nothing to do with the forever famous reports by that brilliant mind.
So here are the cards I was looking at.. Enjoy!
