A high and some lows

Geez...another blah day as far as keepers from the Santa Lot...but first a quick pick up since I had to go to the card store and get a gift for my son's friend...

It was about time I add this set to my unopened Magic booster collection! This is unopened Magic booster number 80 (67 different sets covered).


At least it is a Leaf, even if it is one that I've got a few of...


Boo! Don't mind one now and then, but not appreciative of getting three of these in a single go.

The rest

A few different things going on here that I want to comment on.

The Jamario Moon Raptor card is a nice pic of getting good air. If I was a basketball player, this is a good card that I would want to represent my play.

2005 SPX football has been little represented in the Santa Lot - I think this makes double the amount of cards I have from the set.

Do I know who Mark Bradley is? Absolutely not - but this card makes me appreciate him a bit more than your average...Brad...with the sweet throwback design of Heritage.

Would have been happier if the Bobby Hull was a card I didn't have - still really want to finish this set...

  1. I'm impressed at your commitment to unopened packs

    1. It will end one of two ways - an impressive collection of packs to display and pass on to the kids - or in retirement, I'll go on a binge of unwrapping them all myself....could go either way...
