More recent cards of players from yesteryear will always have a good chance to get into my good books. I can't say always as some are just too much of a cash grab type idea (though cynically, I could say all cards are really just a cash grab).

Today we get a couple nice addition to sets we have seen before that hit on this note very well.


It is a shame I have only a dozen of the 90 cards in the 2005 Legenday Cuts base set. We could complain at the lack of photo, and use of similar colours which may not be the most energetic, but darn it, I really like this set. I think it does well to make it feel like a more recent set (not trying to simply be just like a vintage set) and properly pay tribute to past stars.

As for 2008-09 Masterpieces - I have said enough on that set - just so pretty and done so well.

The rest

Never a shame to continue to 2008-09 O Pee Chee build. Hoping this gets over 50% before the Santa Lot ends, which would be saying something on an 800 card set.


I love Robert Gallery doing his best Troy Polamalu impression.
