A nice return from Martin Lapointe, signed on this World Junior Tournament Canada Card when he was a young pup.  Martin is now retired from the game he loved, having a pretty successful career playing almost 1,000 games. He played for many storied franchises, included the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings.  Way to go Martin!


  1. Nice card. I like those Upper Deck World Junior Tournament cards, something about those Canada jerseys and cage helmets. A few good players in that subset as I can remember; nice auto!

  2. I know! I really liked these cards, it's too bad there aren't more of them out there (that I'm aware of at least!)

  3. There was a Czech set that 100 cards that included more players, including all the ones from the regular UD set with Czech writing on the back.
