The world is very different this Canada Day to last - no way to overstate that, but it is still Canada Day so we celebrate in our own way. Here, on the blog....yeah, I am not one for themes or specialties, so let's just go with this...
Well, with another box behind me, today we have a PWE trade that I have finally gotten around to sharing. This one from althib at TCDB. I have had a few trades with althib over the past few years, and the fellow Canadian has been able to send along dribs and drabs from different things I collect, and that's true here today in our trade.
A splattering of base cards from sets I am slowly working on, and a couple nice 1989 Donruss MVP inserts, including everyone's favourite Ozzie (sorry Guillen).
Just a few Jays before getting to some hockey.
Yes - there are a few checklists I consider Leaf cards and this Donruss one, dead centre, definitely fits the bill.
I really like any design that brings out the blue colours with the Leafs, they just look that step better. Never seen the Ice Wars cards before and a nice light blue border makes then solid, and does the Ice design with the couple toned blue border.
We end with what is my first Leaf card from the 2004-05 In The Game Franchises Canadian set. I am not generally a fan of In The Game sets, but the old school design and retro players, I can get behind this one.
A separate PWE that was unexpected, and in response to some cards I had just sent to althib with no expectation of cards in return, and I got these...
My first cards from 2010-11 Panini Limited. Both being SNs out of 299, and looking excellent and shiny...a great way to end the post!
