On a lighter note, let's take a look at today's 20 cards from the Santa Lot and see if we come out with something for the collection.
The Flair Showcase Leaf is also an insert - excellent pull, and nice looking card. It may have come across better with a bit more colour than just the full body shot, but shiny is acceptable as well.
Earlier this week I mentioned getting some gold medallion parallels out of 2007-08 Ultra but no ice parallels - well, here is another of those gold parallels for the collection.
A very light day as this is the only other keeper.
Being a fan of the Raptors and following their early days, I always think of McGrady and Christie more as Raps than as they are shown here. The McGrady shot - post dunk - is a really nice shot. Also find the Rookie Fantasy Challenge cards an interesting insert, though the design could be better...too much going on for my liking.
