Don't really consider this an Artifact...


I have talked before about Artifact sets and how much I generally enjoy them. This is from one of the designs that just doesn't do much for me and honestly feels outside the normal realm of what I think of as Artifacts sets. I am happy to get this as it is a new for me card, but yeah, not one of my favourites.


Pesky gum stains. Sheldon is known for his advocacy against abuse such as what he suffered through the hands of Graham James. His hockey career didn't last long - whether the abuse played into that at all would be anyone's guess though I would never try to walk in someone else's shoes. A bad situation that Sheldon has worked hard to ensure others would not have to suffer through.

The rest

A decent enough bunch today. Glad to find one of the last remaining needs for 2007-08 Upper Deck Series 2 if nothing else.


Yeah - one keeper from the set and plenty more dupes for 2007-08 Upper Deck Series 2.

  1. Sundin looks like he's rowing a gondola in that image, LOL!

  2. What year is that Artifacts card from; I've never seen anything using that design before.
