Earlier this decade, Upper Deck inserted a line of cards into our hockey sets called Upper Deck Masterpieces. A high-end insert, it included original artwork of today’s stars as well as some of the brightest NHL stars of the past. Now Upper Deck Authenticated has taken this widely popular set and created a beautiful larger size original artwork signed by one of the greatest ever to play the game. Former Colorado Avalanche center Joe Sakic is featured in this 1/1 original painting on a canvas panel. The Hall of Fame skater was not only a two-time Stanley Cup champion, he was also widely considered the most respected man in the league throughout his impressive 20-year career.
