Doing it with Flair

I have talked before about my confusion over Flair Showcase - a standalone set one year, insert set for the next. Today though, we get coverage on both, and I will say, both sets are nice, so I like seeing them, just their inclusion could be more consistent.


I do enjoy the look of these cards, and the Ian White is nice with the close up and full body picture representation. Also, the insert year Hemsky is nice too - the blue tint on these really helps any team with blue colour in their theme.


Another one bites the dust...insert

The rest

In hand, he three Showcase cards here all have the same tint, but scanned obviously, the Pushcarov has a blue tint. Had to check that it wasn't some odd parallel, but doesn't seem to be the case, just the way they scanned.


Even another Flair card here with a number of Donruss Threads from 2009 (including a nice Reggie Bush and Culpepper).
