Collecting Whalers: 1995-96 Topps Stadium Club

I'm still scanning my way through the monster lot of Hartford Whalers cards I picked up on eBay. Recently, I stumbled across these 6 1995-96 Topps Stadium Club cards. I was done with my first run at collecting by this point and never snagged any of these when they were released.

#4 - Glen Wesley - I actually like the design from this set. The borderless photos are nice and crisp and I like the little TSC puck logo.

#29 - Sean Burke - Great action shot, although it looks like Burke may be on the verge of giving up a goal here.

#38 - Nelson Emerson - The only horizontal card in the bunch...

#61 - Andrew Cassels

#149 - Andrei Nikolishin - It's actually Nikolishin, not Nikolishen. They got it wrong on the front but right on the back. Nice job Topps.

#EC172 - Geoff Sanderson - Extreme Corps - Given that this is card #172 I'm guessing that Extreme Corps is a parallel of the base set maybe? Anyone know?

What the hell does Extreme Corps actually mean?

Extreme Corps in the baseball set is just a subset - they have regular numbers toward the end of the set.
