The 1990 Pro Set Hockey Cards may be one of the top Junk Wax sets of all time as they were produced during the height of this era and were reasonably priced, making kids like myself purchase them by the dozens.
As a side note, we are currently purchasing cases of this set in an attempt to RIP the 1990 Stanley Cup Pro Set Hologram card. So far, we have gone through five cases and have NOT pulled this elusive hockey card. We read, on average, one per case, but this may be innumerate; if anyone has information on this issue, we look forward to your comments below this article.
Update 2023: We have now torn through ten cases of the 1990 Pro Set Hockey Cards and still have not received a Stanley Cup Hologram card. If anyone can explain this, please do so in the comments, as we are baffled!
Without further ado, here are our favorite cards from the 1990 Pro Set Hockey Cards. Please note this is subject to update as we may add more cards the more we open.

We have opened around 5 or 6 cases and still have e not seen this bad boy.
#2. 1990-91 Jaromir Jagr Pro Set Stat Headed Not Lined Up Error RC #632
Much easier than the Belfour card named above but not a walk in the park either.
#3. 1990-91 Mike Ricci Pro Set RC #631
This one may be too high. We will triple-check this.

Another Wayne Gretzky card… not surprised.
#9. 1990-91 Mike Modano Pro Set RC #142
This kid could play. I remember playing NHLPA for Sega; this kid and Bure would own anyone.
#10. 1990-91 Mario Lemieux Pro Set #362
The second-best payer of all time.
#11. 1990-91 Steve Yzerman Pro Set #79
A long, epic career with one team. A class act all around.
#12. 1990-91 Sergei Federov Pro Set RC #604
Let’s start with a classic from the set that just about any kid collecting hockey cards in the 1990s should remember with great fondness.
THEE 1990 Sergei Federov RC #604.
If you claim you collected hockey cards in the 90s and are not familiar with this card, I’m not sure I believe you.
A truly epic card should be a solid investment at PSA 10 or 9, BGS 9.5, SGC 10.
#13. 1990-91 Brett Hull Pro Set Promo RC #1
Millions will have this base card, but few will have this promo card at high grades, which should be a super underrated investrment6 from now on,
We would LOVE to own this bad boy in a PSA 10 or even more epic BGS Black LABEL…. gasp!
