Not always for me

The highlights I get out of the Santa Lot are usually because they are items that I collect, items that excite me as a collector, but some times, it can just as easily be something I have no intention of keeping. That is the case today.


We have seen most of these cards here or there, but here we get a good bunch of the 2004-05 Ultra rookie cards from the base set (subset). I do wish they did something else to differentiate them than the brown/bronze colour used for the background and name. Maybe just a rookie banner or something....but regardless, a nice bunch to get.


Boo! I get a Leaf and he's too damaged to keep.Sigh - classic '90s O Pee Chee. At least I do already have the card, but still....

The rest

These are great too in continuing the slow build - 315 down and 485 to go!
