So, a stocking stuffer from Christmas to share today:
So this pack is the official team set for Toronto of 2018-169 Parkhurst. The good for me is, these are all new for the collection. The downside is, this isn't really a full team set for the release. It is every base card for each team player getting a card, but missing are:
Checklist card 220 with Matthews on it
All Star card 313 with Matthews on it and
the two rookie cards 347 and 373 (Dermott and Johnsson)
Still, plenty of good in adding these 10 cards even though, for the price I am sure Santa would have had to pay if purchased in store, could have been better to pay postage and trade for these.
The design itself is clean, and with the white border to boot, but with the cose ups in all cases, I find the white uniform Leafs a bit too white overall in the card.
I'd prefer more of a wider action shot as you get with the flagship Upper Deck set and others, but a decent design otherwise and alright overall.
A great start to the actual team set, just wish they wouldn't call it a complete set when there are other base cards to collect for a team.
The thoughts from others? I think the fact the package lists the cards included helps the case tremendously (so I am not really upset in this case), but to be a team set, I would expect all base cards not counting variations.
