Was able to pick up this lot of packs - 1993-94 Upper Deck. I picked it up because I didn't have an unopened pack for that part of my collection, but hey, three more for opening...whenever! Bonus!
I also picked up a couple other oversized wins...
One of my missing 1997-98 5" by 7" Bee Hive cards - frankly the only time I am happy to see Patricia...
Also one the Leaf below, but received the bonus card too...
Nice Lindros card indeed.
In hockey, you like either the Leafs or Les Canadiens - there is really no middle ground. In baseball, I don't think it was ever the same way. I was always a Jays fan first, but rooted for an all Canadian World Series (which unfortunately never happened). There is just more tendency to like both teams - maybe because in baseball, both were really considered underdogs compared to the multitude of American teams otherwise.
Maybe that is why I can let it go that there is only one card for keeping today when it is a nice team pic, and it happens to be a Canadian baseball team. The card isn't in the greatest of conditions, but late 70s Expos (or Jays) are nice cards to get. I think I have said before, these team photos should be brought back in full force. Also, I don't mind the team checklist on the back, by I would even prefer team leaders for a couple main stats.
The good in 2008 Donruss Elite here - down to about 20 of the 100 true base cards left to complete the set! This knocked of about 6 more. Also, the second, I believe, 2009-2010 basketball Topps card after that Stephen Curry rookie. I know the set is hard to come by in unopened packs because of the Stephen Curry rookie cards, but would be nice to get a few more through the Santa Lot for trading cards. I mean, if I have to get more basketball, might as well be good!
