I recently spent 6,000 points on the 5 cards below. At the time 17,600 points was equivalent to $1US, and these were free shipping, so you can figure out the cost. How did I get the 6,000 points - well completing a 15 minute survey netter 12,500 points, so again, you can figure that I essentially got these cards for about 7 minutes work. OK - that still makes my time spent sound cheap...but it was time I wasn't really doing much with anyway...I guess...enough justifying...here is what I picked up (though I got them of course for the Jays cards)...
As for today's Santa Lot pulls...
This is the third Mats 2007-08 McDonalds card I have, all picked up through the Santa Lot 20 - and I am not complaining about it one bit given how pretty these cards are - and since one will be for the Leaf collection, one for the set completion I am hoping happens, and an extra...um....just because....
The Gridiron Kings insert set from 2008 Donruss Threads was done with two insert sets - a Pro and a College set. Personal preference is the pro set as shown here - which goes to my preference overall for pro cards versus college cards.
Nice to see a couple 2007-08 Upper Deck Ice cards again - I love the feel/texture to these.
Other than a bunch more 2008 Donruss Threads cards, nice to pick up another 2007-08 McDonalds insert card from the checklists. Only one card away from completing a second set of it.
