Keep on moving

Completing base sets is a goal for many collectors, some do so by avidly seeking out and buying the missing cards, some like myself, do so in a more passive way (at least until you get down to the last few cards). Today's Santa Lot 20 brings a few cards from a couple sets at varying completion levels.


With the few 1990 O Pee Chee cards in this pull, just one new for me to add to the set attempt - now just shy of 80% with the Semenov rookie card. The new 1991 Pro Set Platinum cards move that set up to just under 50%...still a while to go there...

The rest

A good example of old versus new in these few cards - the simplicity of the Flames uniforms compared to the newer ones. The 'Canes uniform is closer, but either way, sometimes the simplicity of the uniforms look much better generally.


The good - the 2008 Playoff Prestige cards are all new to me and bump the 100 true base card set to 37% completion. Also, since a number of my 1990 O Pee Chee cards were from packs I opened which had some gum damage, I will have to check if these are an upgrade in quality of the cards at least.
