Now that the 2018 Winter Olympics are wrapped up, the greatest winter sport on Earth can now step out of the shadows and shine. I'm talking the Iditarod Dog Sled Race. While mushing has been around for hundreds of years, it wasn't until 1973 that the Iditarod became an official sport/race (thanks Wikipedia). This year is Iditarod 46 where 67 racers will set off on the 1000-mile course to try and finish in front of the other 66 mushers. By the time this is posted, there will a little more than 24 hours until the race starts. Back in 1992, when everything was being printed on trading cards, MotorArt produced one of the several Iditarod sets that came out around this time. The complete 1992 MotorArt checklist can be found on The Trading Card Database. I know nothing about this sport, but I am willing to try anything. Grab something warm to drink and a box of Girl Scout cookies.....it's time to heat this pack up.
Here is a sample of the backs:
There you have it. If I remember to check, I'll post the race winner here.
