Durant Durant and knocking off a most wanted

A one card win off Listia which knocked off one of the remaining 1991-92 Pro Set hockey cards I need to complete the full set. Most wanted for purpose, least wanted for content...

Still, nice to knock one off the most wanted list - yay!

So today's pull made me add one other previous item to the specific accomplishments below. I will save this for only what I find to be excellent pulls. I am going to try and keep it to a handful over the course of the Santa Lot, though I guess that could change. One of the first cards was the 1973-74 Bobby Orr All Star card. I am going to add this single card, and the Durant highlighted below because these are just great cards in their own right.


Given it is a Durant rookie, how hot he is right now, and that it is the variation card as well - have to say this is one of the big highlights as far as single cards go from the Santa Lot (so far). If I hit another string of these inserts, could end up with the insert set which would be another great accomplishment.

The rest

Nothing spectacular, but the Bowman International set is interesting with the chrome look and faux signature.

The rest:

Well - the Classics cards are a first from the Santa Lot - so that's a good thing, but they are minor league cards, so not something I'll be keeping. Otherwise, as much as I can appreciate coach cards like Alain's above - I'd love to see current sets do this with more unusual poses, pictures than "sitting on the bench" or "standing behind the bench".
