2014 Adventures in Repacks: Part 6

I'm a sucker for the classics. 15 hockey cards for $1 at Ye Olde Dollarama.

2009 Between The Pipes - Tyson Sexsmith - The name doesn't quite rip apart the Filth-O-Meter like Grant Clitsome, but it still makes my inner 13-year old chuckle. He must have spent some time on the San Jose bench, as he did earn a card in last season's releases. He hasn't played a minute in the NHL, and is now in Europe. It is a nice patriotic mask for the binder.
1991 Score - Bryan Marchment RC
1990 Score - Craig Janney
1990 UD - Al Iafrate
2002 OPC - Jocelyn Thibault - This mask shows why the face on the Chicago jersey is a profile.
1993 UD - Brian Benning
2003 Be A Player - Olli Jokinen
1989 OPC - Tony Granato RC - Not a bad rookie card to pull from a repack, even if it is the junk wax era.
1992 UD - Nikolai Semin
1989 OPC - Stephane Richer
1991 Pro Set - Arena Designs - Pro Set gets a lot of heat in retrospect for their overproduction (even by the time's standards) and their many errors, but one thing they did right was including classic photos from the Hall of Fame in their set.
1996 Score - Joe Juneau
1993 UD - JoƩ Juneau - I guess Upper Deck's graphics department had the ability to add an accent aigu to names.
1990 Bowman - Guy Carboneau
2005 Heroes & Prospects - Eric Lindros - In the day, pulling Lindros in a Generals uniform would be a beautiful pull. Now, not so much.

Several keepers here. And that's all I ask for from a repack.
