In the CARDS

IT ISN’T SUR­PRIS­ING TO find pro­fes­sional hockey play­ers re­lax­ing with a round of golf in the off-sea­son, many times play­ing in a char­ity or celebrity tour­na­ment. What is sur­pris­ing is when hockey play­ers are found in a set of golf trad­ing cards.

Up­per Deck’s 2012 SP Au­then­tic Golf set, com­prised of 119 cards, fea­tured 30 fa­mous ath­letes from other sports in its “Pa­rade of Stars” sub­set. In­cluded are hockey leg­ends Wayne Gret­zky, Grant Fuhr, Bobby Orr and Brett Hull. Un­for­tu­nately, Happy Gil­more did not make the cut.
