I think the COVID lot heard by comments about chrome yesterday, as we have a bunch of insert football cards, which aren't just chrome, but SUPERCHROME!
Unwinding with baseball cards...and hockey cards....and Magic cards...and who knows what else...

More Super Than Chrome

Making Finest Finer
We seem to be hitting chunks of sets with the COVID lot lately, and that continues today with some 1994 Finest baseball. Another set that I don't ever remember seeing out in the wild back in the day. Then again, back in the wild, there was really only one local card store that I visited, so the selection wasn't everything, and for some products, the box option only as a kid didn't work as I was not spending that type of money on cards.
Not a set I am or plan on collecting, so other than a single error card, everything else is good to trade and on my TCDB listing if you are interested. Just take a peek at my trade list.

Bowman's (Not So) Best
I've said before - Bowman has never been one of my favourite sets, and that's true about the Bowman's Best sets. Sure, I am happy to get a Jays card like this...

Next To Vintage
Back into the COVID lot and we get to look at some old stars on newer cards. I've talked before about liking more recent sets which highlight past stars, and though I don't have many cards from these sets, I do have some nice keepers here for long set builds.

Serial Numbered Edge
I don't collect football, as you likely know by now, so may not be a surprise, but I didn't know about this set until seeing these cards. I am just showing some highlights, but all in, about 328 cards from the base set and insert/checklists, so a near complete set, which is pretty cool since all of the cards are serial numbered.
Then we have some of the checklist cards too, and I will consider them inserts since they weren't part of the numbered base set.
Not a bad set, and nice to have most of it, but since it's football, will hopefully be able to find homes to someone looking to build the set (or two, or three, or more people...however many I can help).
All in though, good enough to add this to the accomplishment pile since it's a SN set, even if 100,000, with only 3 missing cards.

Ending On A High Note
Last pack to share from the Magic prerelease for Dominaria United, and we end pretty darn well.
Boom - a great colourless mana land with Plaza of Heroes which is in the foil form. Price is about $15-$17 CDN, so between this and the Karn card, as well as the kept unopened packs, definitely got my money worth on the prerelease pack, though the bonus 2 Set Boosters definitely assisted with that.
A bit surprised I didn't end up with a couple more artifact cards for the collection, but a blast to go through the packs.
Tomorrow- let's head back into the COVID lot for a while and see what comes our way there....

An interesting pack today...though still not exactly what I am hoping for.
Not too shabby on getting a Planeswalker with Jaya, and also hitting a foil card with the Apparition, even if it is a common.
Planeswalkers are usually worth a few dollars, which Jaya appears to be here - about $4-5 CDN, so nothing earth shattering, but alright for now. Will have to see if prices stabilize, or drop further.
One more pack to go - hopefully having saved the best for last!

Another draft pack of Dominara United today, and we get one keeper at least!
Unfortunately, that's about it as none of the more rare cards fit for me. Yesterday, we defiled dreams and today's rare, we defile instinct. I gather there are other defilers - one for each colour - if I look at the card list. All having one similar ability, and one which is more fitting to the colour.
Not the greatest pack, but I have hopes with two left to go!
A quick trade to share, though I don't usually do trades for a card or two as I like to at least fill a PWE, I did a small PWE with RJeng at TCDB and picked up the following - both of which are second Jays cards from the respective 1997 Metal and 2000 Fleer Focus sets...
Not a bad scan for a Metal card, and a nice couple new Jays all around.

In Your Dreams
Another pack from the Dominaria United Prerelease kit, and another chance for maybe finding something to add to the artifact card collection.
I guess we have a dream....with a couple interesting side effects. The mana reduction can be useful to pay life instead of the blue mana, and the additional card pick up when casting a permanent s good to - but 5 mana to cast in total, is a bit hefty. Not a bad pack, but nothing really here for me.

Try The Draft
Yesterday was a pack of Dominaria United Set Booster, today we have a draft booster which comes with a few more cards, but much more common.
This would have been a solid pack for someone who plays green, but that hasn't been my jam since the first year I started playing back in 1994-95 when I was all about getting out my Force of Nature beasts, Craw and Scaled Wurms....all big baddies.
Let's end today with a nice PWE trade with first time trade partner BNWallgren1220 bringing some Jays home to roost.
