Even though I am not a fan of the lack o background, the shiny of this set has grown on me over the time of going through the Santa Lot of cards. Still, not sure I'd bother collecting the whole base set, but I have seen enough to want to ensure I get the Leaf cards into my collection.
This is the perfect example of a great picture telling a story. It doesn't need to even be a specific story. I don't know what the call was, or who the reaction was related to, but the expression and the "oh come on" arms out wide just make for a picture with a story. To all the card companies these days - more of this please.
