Wow - that's a lot of inserts and parallels

We have seen some McDonald insert checklist subsets completed recently, and we get a different McDonalds subset card here below.


The is a 2008-09 McDonalds checklist insert - first one we have seen. I like the design and focus on goalies in this subset. There is one Leaf card, which hopefully we come across soon!

4 2008-09 Retro parallel O Pee Chee cards - yay! I only have about 20 cards from this parallel set, but I like them regardless. Great adds to the collection, even if no Leafs are involved.

The rest

Yes - just the one keeper outside the highlights, but I'll take it given the cards above.


Some more inserts/parallels here with the Koufos and glossy D.J. White cards, but the best part of these is the 2009-2010 Topps set which we have not seen before out of the Santa Lot. I like the general design - similar to the baseball design, though I am not a large fan of the number of horizontal cards here.

  1. 2009-10 Topps is actually becoming a hard set to track down thanks to it including Stephen Curry rookies, his only one from Topps. I cannot find a single box to purchase, and I've been looking since before his breakout year of 2014-15.
