Ryan Smyth: 5 Autographed Cards (Part 2)

                 (continued from the previous post)

But the real prize of this mailing remains the cards picturing him as an Oiler. After Wayne Gretzky and Kevin Lowe - or perhaps even on par with them - Smyth rounds up my top-3 favourite Oiler skaters ever. These three cards have him wearing all three Oilers' uniforms he's worn over the years:

The one on the left - the dark blue 'away' jersey - is from UD's 2005-06 SP Authentic set (card #41); the card in the middle - the 'home' jersey -is from the 2003-04 In The Game set (card #38) by In The Game; and the card on the right, in which he's sporting the Oilers' then-third jersey designed by Todd McFarlane - my favourite alternate jersey in all sports - is from Topps' 2002-03 Topps Total set (card #268).

Welcome home, Captain Canada!
