The Worst Hockey Cards of All-Time is a new feature at Houses of the Hockey. On occasion, we’ll be highlighting some of the ugliest, funniest, and error-ridden cards both past and present.
Anders Hedberg left his mark on North American professional hockey by registering 856 points in 751 games between the WHA and NHL. He was a trailblazer of sorts, being one of the earliest European transplants to find success in the NHL. Although Hedberg was a Bill Masterton Trophy winner, an NHL all-star, and a prolific scorer – the lasting image we have of him is one that looks like Rutger Hauer reprising his Roy Batty character while on meth.
This card is a little bit of awesome, but still leaves us wondering if the art director insisted on painting the Swedes as crazy folk.
Although we consider ourselves a bunch of nostalgia crazy hockey geeks, and have all collected cards throughout the years, we’re always looking for new cards to highlight. If you have a hockey card you’d like to see featured, just email us at email@example.com and we may post your submission
