Something a bit different for today. Since there is no highlight, and no cards for keeps in the Santa Lot 20 today, I figured I at least provide something a tad different. Instead of card fronts - here are the backs of the traders. You'll note that the cards cover just two sets - 2003-04 SP Authentic (the cards do not knock out either of the two remaining cards I'm "looking" for) and 1991 7th Inning Sketch QMJHL minor league cards.

I find that the 2003-04 SP Authentic card backs are just too basic/plain, and it has always bothered me when the full history is not laid out. Past 5 years is okay - but in any cards, I like having the full historical year by year stats. The QMJHL does a bit better with the picture added in, but quite plain - though for a minor league set, I can understand this a bit more.

Hope this gives a bit of a different look to some of the cards we have already seen.

  1. Agreed that the backs of the SP Authentic are too plain

  2. I like going through sets like the 7th Inning Sketch to see who played even in the AHL, never mind the NHL.. I have a bunch of them from my friend when he gave me most of his collection. If I had anything you wanted, I'd take those off your hands lol

    1. Some may just find their way to you regardless now...lol
