I finally got one!!!
Upperdeck has had “Art Work” cards for years; even in the early 90’s they had these beautiful cards I have always been drawn to them. I already feel that the cards are pieces of art work with the photographs and the borders/logos/fonts/foil etc. but when it is an actual illustration there is even more to appreciate.
I do have the early 90’s “art work” cards as they are part of the regular base set.
Gretzky 1500 point art card from the early 90’s. Such a nice card,
funny how 1500pts seemed like a lot (it is but not for #99).
He retired with 2857 points. He also had well over 1500pts
at the printing of this card.
This “new” card means a little bit more to me; I have not pulled any art cards from Upperdeck series one or two in the past 4 years. I see them on EBay, I see them listed in Beckett magazine but I have never had my hands on one.
I finally got one and it is a beauty.

So it may have taken a few years, but it was worth the wait.
