Getting into the third pack from the box, would hope there may be some Toronto content, but we start off with these...
Joel - that is just about the expression I had seeing these come out, and both being dupes.
As far as expansion teams go, maybe it's my youth talking, but I always felt the San Jose expansion went well. Sure, maybe not so much on the ice as they missed the playoffs the first couple years, and took a while longer to get to being a .500 club, but for an expansion team, I do feel there should be a little level of "paying your dues". Heck, if just being new can't get you sell outs the first couple years, even if the team sticks, then the place shouldn't have a team.
Happily, the rest of the pack are keepers.
I really like the old school Jets uniforms. I can't say that enough as I think they are so fitting, and I was so glad when Winnipeg got a franchise again, that the name was the one chosen as it just fit so well.
No inserts today, but that's alright.
3 Packs, 24 Cards, 65 Points.
That's where i take exception with Upper Deck, imagine plunking down $ and getting just base commons in your pack, Insert price is right buzzer sound here!ReplyDelete
I like those Jets unis as well, and I agree that the Sharks expansion followed the blueprint exactly (aside from that whole 'merging with Minnesota' weirdness)ReplyDelete
Yeah - the merging was weird, but not something that would regularly happen...hopefully.Delete
Man... the Sharks played at the Cow Palace the first couple of years and probably only sat 10k fans. I went to a few games there and it was not a pretty sight. But the San Jose Arena is a great place to play and Sharks fans are pretty darn loyal to their team. Although I gotta admit, I didn't go to any games this season.ReplyDelete
