Shark fans exist - right?

Team collecting and buying packs of cards don't always work well together. If you collect a team and buy a pack of cards, chances are you will be lucky to get one card for your collection. Even back in the junk days when you would get up to 15 or 17 cards in a pack, given there were more teams in the league (any of the major professional sports), chances weren't great for more than a card.

The sometimes, you get lucky and get two or three team cards in a pack. Good news, is this seems to happen somewhat frequently with the Santa Lot 20 - unfortunately today not Jays or Leafs, but Sharks...guess it's appropriate given the Stanley Cup finals...


The rest

SPx cards I think by nature are shiny, and even after getting a couple pages worth of these cards, I can see how a set together could look pretty neat.


The big part of the traders is that the 2003-04 SP Authentic set is now down to only 25 cards left to get out of the 90 card "base" set. Anyone interest in a complete set, or close to it, let me know - once I am there, I have no problem trading the whole set away.

And don't forget...
