Worst Ever Hockey Cards #19

#5 - Doug Bonner
1995 Signature Rookies

Surprisingly, Signature Rookies managed to fart out one more set after the 1994 Roman debacle. As much as I was hoping the 1995 cards would have a wild west theme, SR decided to go for a more toned-down kind of ugly. While SR did not shell out to license the team's logo, they were nice enough to spend a few seconds photoshopping "Seattle" onto the jersey. In case you were wondering, Bonner's pro career consisted of a handful of games in the AHL and a few seasons kicking around the ECHL and UHL. There are only 4,499 more of these floating around... you better grab 'em before they're gone.

Worst Ever Hockey Cards #18

#CXVIII - Wendell Young
1994 Signature Rookies Tetrad Autographs

I love when budget companies did their impression of high-end cards. Here is a Signature Rookies autograph of a washed-up player that is painfully hand-numbered 2640 of 7750. If the photoshopped jersey and ugly Roman column on the front aren't bad enough for you, check out the Windows 95 wallpaper and hockey clip art on the back. At least they had the good judgment not to write the blurb in Latin as well.
