As much as I would rather not get a Montreal card, at least it is a parallel for my collection. That said, it pales in comparison to the shiny Delvecchio. I don't think you will ever see a player spend 24 seasons with a single team again like he did. Crosby may want to, but not sure his health will hold up that long. I do hope he sticks with Pittsburgh through his career.
I don't mind the Trilogy cards - a bit too much design, and not enough picture, kinda like the Be A Player above them. Trilogy is a bit more of a tease with the vague showing in the background of the...well, background. Definitely happy to add another 1990 Pro Set need.
SPx cards can be some kind of shiny. I may not be a basketball card collector, but I do appreciate the shiny of these. As for the "basic" hockey cards - no needs met on these unfortunately.
