All for the rookie...update and some studio time

I only needed the Guzman card, but I really like the photos and designs on these cards so I picked up the following Jays on Listia:

The signatures are nicely done as well - don't normally like the faux signatures, but they look nice on the simple studio design here.

Ok, so here are the rookie related highlights...


I know, more Update than Rookie related, especially Ron Francis....

The rest

To go further with the Rookie mantra in the Santa Lot 20, a nice 2009-10 Upper Deck MVP rookie card. Again, someone with plenty of hockey playing career (a number of years in European leagues), but still a rookie for NHL purposes.


More rookie cards from Leaf football here as well - seem to be rookie related cards all over this 20 card picking. Even the 7th inning cards which are essentially pre-rookie cards for NHL purposes...and I guess we can call the Austin Power cards rookie to since it was the first and only Austin Powers card game that I know of (and hope to goodness the only one that ever existed or exists).
