Mario Lemieux led the Pittsburgh Penguins to consecutive Stanley Cup championships in 1991 and 1992. He is the only man to have his name on the Cup as both a player and an owner.  He also led Team Canada to an Olympic gold medal in 2002, a championship at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, and a Canada Cup in 1987. He won the Lester B. Pearson Award as the most outstanding player voted by the players four times, the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player (MVP) during the regular season three times, the Art Ross Trophy as the league's points leader six times, and the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoffs MVP in 1991 and 1992. 

Offered here is a PSA EX-MT 6 1985 OPC rookie card with amazing color and beside it being slightly off centered top to bottom would be a NM or NM-MT copy on a better day. Overall nice eye appeal of one of the best to every play the game. Phenomenal addition to any serious hockey or sports card collection.

"Canada 150" Collector Provenance:

Our consignor had some health issues as a young boy and was unable to compete in sports, so the way he connected with his favorite sports of hockey, baseball and basketball was through collecting trading cards of the players.

Fortunately, our young collector’s health improved as he grew up and he was eventually able to get on the ice, diamond and hardwood at a competitive level. In addition, he also continued with his sports card collection.

He took that collection to another level when he embarked on a project to obtain the “rookie cards” of the top 150 NHL all-time points leaders, the top 150 MLB all-time home run hitters and the top 150 NBA all-time scoring leaders. He accomplished his goal (except for a handful of baseball rookies), and this “150” collection has been a decades long pursuit, but also a moving target as players have moved in and out of the lists.

Many of the cards are graded and are highly desired rookie issues in their particular sport. Countless others are of star players and present potential grading opportunities.

Our Canadian collector has enjoyed this pursuit and the colorful, eye pleasing mosaic of cards he had presented in frames for years, but feels the time is right to give them a new home and has entrusted SCP Auctions to present them to the market.
