Kaberle it on me!

The Santa Lot twenty ended up with a few Leafs, so a success right off the bat, add some more 2008-09 Upper Deck Masterpieces, and I am a happy man!


McCabe and Kaberle are a nice couple additions from their respective sets, but the Masterpiece card is the best to me -and not just because of Salming. In a trade a few months ago I received a number of Leaf cards from the set, but Salming was one of the couple I didn't get, so adding it now is nice a syep closer to the team set (though I am still hopeful for the entire set)

The rest

More Masterpieces makes me happy. As for the others, I know people have mixed feelings regarding Ilya because of his choice to leave the NHL and head back home, and frankly I am torn. I can fully understand the want to work closer to home (which is, my understanding, one of the driving forces to the decision), but I find it hard to figure he did this after signing a long term deal (I think it was 10 years or more). Oh well, he is immortalized in another card in my collection regardless...


Along with a string of 1999-2000 Upper Deck MVP cards, some Flower power!
