The Vancouver Rioter Fans of the Game Hockey Card is a classic gem from 1994. After a Game Seven Stanley Cup Final defeat by Mark Messier and the New York Rangers, thousands of Canucks fans took to the streets of Vancouver. An estimated 50,000 to 75,000 fans swarmed the streets, especially at the corner of Robson and Thurlow. Initially an upbeat gathering, mob mentality and alcohol took over with fights and mosh pits becoming the norm. Fans climbed on top of stores, street signs, and even tried to tightrope walk on the hydro wires above the streets.
