Jason Blake spent two and a half years with the Leafs before moving on to Anaheim where he ended his career. A serviceable centre for most of his career. New for me, and a Leaf - works for me.
A great slew of keepers today - would love this many every day! 1988 Score baseball is not a set I collected back in my childhood, and not one I picked up in completed form since getting back into the hobby the last few years. I can't say I am looking to complete it either, but I'll hang on to cards I get for now - maybe make a run at the set later.
I'll gladly take the Black Diamond cards. I would say as far as card sets go, Black Diamond would be top three. First for hockey would definitely be Artifacts (this may or may not have to do with my love and collection of Artifacts in Magic cards), then likely Black Diamond and finally McDonalds. I don't count "one offs" such as the Legends Classics set we have seen (which I believe was a one-off).
As much as I like inserts (see 2007 Topps Own The Game above) - I have to give the nod to the 1982 O Pee Chee E.T. card as the one here that I can find a quick home for. Have seen about 10 of these so far, and all have found other homes. I just don't have an interest in collecting the TV/Movie type cards - I personally need a bit shorted focus to work with.
