Lucky that I needed both Parkhurst cards, and this is the first 2011-12 Artifacts card I have received. I generally really like Artifact cards, so no surprise that I enjoy this set as well based on this first card anyway.
A glossy parallel - at least this makes the 6 a win since I will keep this in my collection.
Lastly, the couple cards for trade. I really don't need the minor league cards...but am sure we will see more of these through the Santa Lot.
Moving on...a theme for today, straightforward and simple...Sharks...easy to follow along I swear, but here we go...
This is oddball enough, I just had to put it as a highlight.Nothing on the card tells me the year of this, the perforations make it appear to be an insert, my guess is, from the National Geographic Kids magazines, though period, I'm not sure about.
Add in a 2008-09 Metal (or is it Gold...hard to tell with the scan...) parallel, and that is a couple nice highlights.
The 2004-05 SP Authentic cards eek me closer to 1/3 completion, even if the cards include one ugly King retro jersey. Well, I will say the Joe Thornton card is more the Shark I was expecting to see in these cards than the Pelagic Thresher above.
Nicely on the smaller side, a lot of keepers today which is great. Continuing the Shark theme - Rob Blake, who I remember most as a King, but did end up with the Sharks for a short spell as well as documented here.
