Today's Santa Lot 20 has two excellent highlights...
2008 National Baseball Card Day and getting a Griffey card is an excellent pull. Just earlier this year he made it into the Hall (and well deservedly so). dd to that getting to over 50% complete now on the 2008-09 Upper Deck Masterpieces set, and this makes a great day - especially with the nice Messier card.
In general, I am a fan of Black Diamond - it has its place, is shiny and thick card stock. Some of the designs are definitely better than others. This year's design is fine - middling in my opinion.
I will say, that is a sweet Nash pose blowing by his opponent.Add to that the Fleer Glossy parallel and 2007 Topps Football Generation Now insert, and even the traders turned out pretty good today.
