Sean Burke: 7 Autographed Items (Part 2)

(continued from the previous post)

The greedy Devils got into a nasty contract dispute with Burke, which made him sit out the 1991-92 season, during which he went back to Team Canada and played in the 1992 Olympics, winning a silver medal. The Devils then sent his rights to the Hartford Whalers with Eric Weinrich for Bobby Holik and Jay Pandolfo. The next 3 cards are of Burke as a Whaler:
Top-left, showing him wearing the Whalers' white (home) jersey is card #127 in Pinnacle Brands' 1994-95 Select set; top-right is a beauty, from the 1995-96 Parkhurst International set (card #96) by Parkhurst, which was then a stand-alone brand after Pro Set went bankrupt and Upper Deck reneged on their distribution deal. The card at the bottom is from Fleer/Skybox's 1996-97 Skybox Impact set (card #52), with a nice view of the away jersey from the back.
