Unfortunately another day with no keepers for the collection, so what is the best of the rest? Classic cards in any sport are pretty sweet. I have talked about both sets before, and have the base of the baseball 2005 Upper Deck Classics done save for the retro rookies, and two thirds of the hockey set done too.
I highly recommend both sets for those who may not want to shell out for the older cards from the playing days of some of the players - a good number you can probably get fairly priced, but probably not all.
Not much to add about these except that the 2007-08 Topps basketball squeaked a couple more missing cards into the collection.
