More Inserts of History

As usual, Wrestlemania was a fun watch last night. Brock and Charlotte retaining were surprises, but Block's I like, Charlotte's, we will have to see how it is played out. Overall, since I did better than my brother and cousin, it was a winning evening for me, so I will take it!


So, the 1957-58 Variation inserts from 2007-08 Topps are nice, but with 33 of 50, I am still hoping that I might actually complete the insert set in total. It would make a nice bit of trade bait for someone. If anyone is interested in any singles, I do have dupes of some. I am going to wait until the Santa Lot is over before trading all of them away, but no problem getting rid of dupes right now.

The rest

Now THAT is the Iginla I remember. He will always be a Flame, it is just unfortunate he couldn't bring a Cup to Calgary, but then again, being from Toronto, I don't need to go into details of people who deserve a Cup and not getting it.


Some more 2007-08 Hot Prospect Fleer hockey which have been sprinkled throughout the Santa Lot.

  1. I could do without Brock..
    I can admit I've never really liked him and it's worse since he's become a two move stump.

    1. I didn't mind his go with breaking the streak, but the last year has been meh. Hopefully Bobby Lashley is back tonight to start a decent feud with him.
