In the CARDS

The Hockey News - - BUZZ - – SAL BARRY OF PUCKJUNK.COM

WHILE NOT AS BIG as the WJC, the U-18 Ivan Hlinka Memo­rial tour­na­ment has grown into a pop­u­lar prospect show­case. It has gone by dif­fer­ent names, in­clud­ing the Mexico Cup in 1994. Canada won gold that year, and the 1994-95 Pin­na­cle Se­lect set fea­tured 20 play­ers from that com­pe­ti­tion, in­clud­ing 17-year-old Jarome Iginla, who led scor­ing with five goals and nine points. Like many cards from that era, the card has a gar­ish de­sign, with gold-foil let­ter­ing, drop shad­ows, gra­di­ents, feath­ered edges and a ser­ape (Mex­i­can pon­cho/blan­ket) back­ground pat­tern.
