A masterpiece-ful return

A nice return to a great set we saw a lot of a while ago.


I love getting the 2008-09 Masterpieces cards, one, because they are great, two because it gives me renewed hope that we may just get this set moved further along. How can you not love that SUtter card?

Add in a new Leaf card in the 2008-09 Victory Steen, and a new 2006-07 McDonalds card, makes for a winning day.

The rest

I will keep this 2005 Donruss Heroes baseball card, but close look on the side, and my guess is the "splitting" of these cards must be a thing because you can definitely see the front and back as two pieces stuck together - not a great way to produce the cards if you can just tell the two pieces.


Keeping up with the Masterpieces, the Messier is definitely a worthwhile dupe.

  1. Love Masterpieces, some of the best cards I own are from that set.

    1. I don't know if it is more the texture or the look that properly capture the "it" factor in making these cards so nice - either way, it works very well.
