About a month or so back, I decided that I'd just skip the set building nonsense, and just order myself a base, Young Gun-free set of the Upper Deck flagship hockey set via ebay. It worked out to just under a dime a card, which was fine by me. With the season looking doomed, it seemed like a reasonable way to get the goods.
I'd actually planned on going through them to highlight some of my favourite photos in the set, and with it looking like there's actually going to be a season, today sounds like as good a day as any. Top 25. Sure? I could have done this with the Score as well, but I'd rather work my way through 200 cards than 548.
I'm just going through them in numerical order.
sunset cards. I couldn't think of a better way to send off Nicklas, cardboard style.
Is it time for the puck to drop yet?
