Saved in the Nik of time

Simply put, the 20 cards for today didn't look to be too promising, until the last card...


This saved the day as not only is it a Leaf, it was a need. Always nice when a pack that isn't looking too good gets turned around by the last card.

The rest

I don't think Pacific cards received a lot of love at the time of their release - too many different sets, a bit out there in design at the time. Now in retrospect, I think there is a desire to have seen some of the designs last on a bit longer and Pacific do a bit better than it did.

The Vanguard Hrdina card here is a great example of a solid design, excellent card stock, and poential in a card set.

Also, though I have never been a big fan of In The Game, it seems that the few cards from the set that I have seen in the Santa Lot are future NHLers.


Unfortunately, nothing....Witt-y....to say about these extras - though great effort shown on Yao's face in the overhead shot.
