Côté was a wonderfully consistent and extremely underrated player who spent his entire 12 year career with the Quebec Nordiques.  He was good for about 35-40 points per year, but his calling was as an elite defensive forward.  He was so adept at defending, in fact, that he would often seamlessly transition to the blue line when called upon.  With these cards, Alain becomes the second player who shares my surname to join my autograph collection!
