Worst Ever Hockey Cards #11

Patrick Roy, 97-98 Collector's Choice, Colorado Avalanche
#316 - Patrick Roy (Chippy's Checklist)
97-98 Collector's Choice

Yeah, this card was more fun than a barrel full of monkeys until I used it as a dart board and then stuck it in my bicycle spokes. I don't understand why any company would encourage people to keep their cards in good shape. They should make it as hard as possible for people to keep their cards in mint condition so that those collectors who are really anal about their cards can at least be have something of value to show for their lack of a soul. Topps got it right with the scratch off names in their 80-81 set. Next year, I'd like to see a set that has a scratch and win on every card and gum back in packs of O-Pee-Chee.
