A prodigious offensive talent as a teenager with the Los Angeles Kings, Carson was the key prospect shipped to Edmonton in the landmark Wayne Gretzky trade.  Less than two years later, he was back in his hometown of Detroit, with injuries taking a toll on his once-endless potential.  Mr. Carson quickly and nicely signed two of the cards I sent, but kept the third.
