So awesome! I'm about as excited about this return as any that I've had to date. As a small boy just discovering the North Stars, Bobby Smith was my first official favorite player. And, almost immediately after that, he was traded to Montreal. Thankfully, the North Stars reacquired him several years later, in time for the '91 Cup run. When I decided to start collecting autographs from the 1979 Topps set, the Bobby Smith rookie card became priority number one. I'm happy to report that it looks just as great as I hoped it would.
