There are some sets that just look so nice, you could sit there and look at them all day long. Everyone probably has a few sets that fit this for their own personal taste, and today we touch on one of mine - 2006-07 McDonald's hockey card set.
The cracked ice design with similar texture, the blueness to play off the Maple Leaf team colours, the simple design and stats (will always want full, but just isn't done on this set), the bilingual goodness for a Canadian touch, and I am sold on it.
I still do not have the full base set, but these two cards help that process. I have 34 of the 50 card base set done, and copies of the Leafs I need, so getting there on it.
Such a pretty set though, I will happily look at duplicates from the set like this. Not a large bunch of cards, but enough to make for happy viewing!
That is indeed a nice looking set, and the holofoil just sets it off..I think I have one or two cards from this set only, and none of them are the ones you have here. Funny how Bergeron is not only still playing but is still with the Bruins all these years later.ReplyDelete
Love when players last that long with a team - you don't see it as much as you did back a few decades.Delete
Nice set except for those Maple Leafs! Just kidding. Sorta.ReplyDelete
I have it on good word that you just beat me to a set on TCDB. Actually I just wanted the Halladay. Won't mention which set because I'll expect to see it here in a few weeks!
Sorry (not sorry - :)) about that. I think I know which you are talking about, and yes, cards just went in the mail each way today - or yesterday - and will share here in a few weeks given time to receive, process, scan and post!Delete
