Die Cutting

I'm not completely sure when die cut cards became a "thing" - probably depends on exactly what you consider a die cut card. The definitely come across as special given the design difference from "normal" cards. Some of my favourites are the Crown Royal cards shaped like crowns - fitting design for the set and intricate cutting. I also like some of the McDonalds designs as well, highlight by, well, one of the highlights below.


The Gagne card is cut around the shape of the Philly Logo and although the condition isn't perfect (one of the corners the cards is split with the front and back coming apart ever so slightly), a nice card otherwise.

Also like the retro 2008-09 O Pee Chee parallel set - if only the original set cards can come in such nice condition these days.

The rest

Yay for another Masterpieces card that I don't have!


A number of shots around the rim - have to say, the action shots aren't bad, maybe a bit too close, but decent photo work nonetheless.
