A Little Retro

 Every now and then from the COVID lot of cards, we get some newer cards with an older flare to them, and that's the highlight for today.

A smattering of 2000s cards here. For those not in the know, the Pacific Complete was a set unto itself, but Pacific was "smart" in essentially putting part of the cards as inserts in a number of different products so you essentially had to buy each product to collect the set in any real manner. Of course, you could look to trade for them otherwise. I think it's a pretty neat idea, but would work better with a fantastic look and feel to the set - this one is just too plain/basic to me.

We do get into some Topps Heritage though which have a classic look.

Add in some Fleer Greats of the Game set cards and you get a bunch of golden oldies for players, and some throwback design. We end with one more throwback design...

The Topps C55 set which has a number of base card variations (including the Zetterberg keeper above). I get the card numbers on the front, but would have been fine with those going onto the back the way they stick out given the yellow background.

I have no idea how easy to get these C55 cards were - anyone out there actually have or collect the set?
