So when I first saw this card, I thought is was a base card, then saw the Pacific moniker, and thought maybe not. Pacific was one of the first names I put with multiple insert sets. Low and behold, this is part of an NHL Regime insert set.
In addition to the surprise insert, this 1985 Topps Blue Jay card was icing on the cake for the day. I have one, so this is a second, but the surprise of mid-80 baseball here was good enough for me anyway.
I am 95% sure that I have the Valenzuela card in a printing error format, so happy to now have a good condition one for the complete set attempt.
Funny, noticed what is not an error, but quite interesting on the Brind'Amour black diamond card - he is in the process of delivering a check to a Flyers' player, and I guess with getting rid of some of the ad names, one of the Flyer player's legs was taken out too - ouch!
I know it is "junk wax", but I still like the 1991-92 Pro Set "Brett Hull - Pro Set Player of the Year" card. A good excuse for getting another Brett Hull card in the set.
