A perfect example

I've mentioned before that I enjoy vintage cards, but given my budget, I generally settle for the throwback sets and homage sets. Heritage, Archives, Masterpieces, these sets are excellent to me and I generally enjoy. Today we get some of these, and a perfect example of what they shouldn't be.


As much as I appreciate the sets, I don't understand the need to throw the ugly Rookie Card logo on the card for Stewart. These were in no way part of the original set. I can appreciate wanting to make something similar to what Topps is doing in 2007 on their sets, but I would have hoped they could go for a retro looking "RC" designation to at least go along with the overall look of the card.

The rest

Samsonov my old friend, it hasn't been long enough since we last met...


Too many 2007-08 Upper Deck hockey here, and many that we have seen multiple of already unfortunately. Happier to see the 2008-09 Fller basketball for being a bit different - and for the uniqueness compared to the repetitive 2007-08 Upper Deck hockey.
