Stu-ing in the Barnes

Stu-ing a but over the lack of goodies today, but I'll  get over it...


Had to stretch a bit to find something positive, so had to focus on a card that was from a set we have only seen a couple of cards from. Stu Barnes floated around and played for a number of teams through his career. I don't mind the design of the card, but it is not one of my favourites - kind of indifferent.

The rest

Only other keep is another Sabre card...not the only two in this group either.


Cowboy heavy on the football cards today, including a  Bledsoe, so at least some quality players. As for the hockey dupes, definitely Sabre heavy. Best part of these would be the J.R. Smith rookie card which was new for the 2004-05 Ultra set.

Might not quite be in the home stretch with the Santa Lot - maybe 6 months guess...but I'd think there may be some positives for trade bait in near complete sets, or at least I'm hoping even complete sets.

  1. As a Sabres fan, I approve of this post!

  2. I love both of the hockey cards. I've seen so many cards in 30 years of collecting that they all pretty much look the same. I love unique images. Upper Deck has always been the leader in that area.
