Watch our for the Avalanche

A good day to talk about team collecting. As a team collector, every pack I open, there is always the hope of getting a Blue Jay card, or a Maple Leaf card - even more so than non-Toronto inserts. Any collector that opens a pack goes through the same exciting "what if" - what if the pack has my guy, my team, my chase card, whatever it is. When you get a couple cards out of the same pack, it is icing on the cake.

The highlights:

If I was an Avalanche collector, this would be a great pack. Still, a nice couple cards which highlight today, though would have been that little bit better if they were Leafs.

The rest

A little late now, but I think I have been counting the Pogs as base cards, when I probably should include them like McDonalds as odd/food issue which I lump with parallels and inserts.


More of the usual suspects including the glasses design of Gridiron. As always, any interest in anything here, just let me know.
