Team cards - any - are a good thing

First, a happy Thanksgiving to everyone south of the border celebrating. Enjoy the food, and enjoy the family you celebrate with.

Every now and then we come across team cards in sets. I am use to seeing them in baseball sets, and the occasional hockey set, but today something a little different.


Soccer is actually a great sport for team cards because the team in these cases (where they are not including subs, coaches, etc, are only 11 players). That many fit nicely and easily identifiable on a card (well, identifiable if you follow the sport I guess because I know none of them here by the photo). I think there are a couple easy things that could be done with this card to make it much better;

1) Go with a natural background of the soccer field - the metal background just does nothing for the card.
2) Have a list of all the players on the back of the card (I was surprised it wasn't included on this one)

The rest

Again the usual confusing Flair Showcase - this being a release of its own.


Can't go wrong with Magic Johnson, John Stockton and retro parallel Paul Pearce with NBA cards.
