Andrei Kovalenko Autographed Card

After entering him in my Oilers Numbers Project back in August, I thought I should feature Andrei Kovalenko once more to enshrine him as #51 in my Nordiques Numbers Project once and for all as well.

The 68 points (27 goals and 41 assists) he posted in his rookie season (1992-93) were not only a career-high for him, but also tops for a wearer of #51 in Québec Nordiques history, which makes him the perfect entry for said number, with card #122 from Leaf's 1993-94 Series 1 set, which he signed in blue sharpie:
What a beautiful uniform; this version, with the jersey numbers contoured in white, is particularly remarkable. That's the team's blue (away) uniform. He's seen here fighting for territorial advantage with the New York Rangers' Sergei Zubov, probably right after a face-off.
