Sal Barry and Tim Parish continue their ’90-91 Retrospective Series with an in-depth look at the 1990-91 Upper Deck Hockey card set. What made the set so significant back then, the best cards from that set, the controversy over the French-language versions — and why every serious hockey card collector needs to own the 1990-91 Upper Deck Hockey set.
