Despite the main complaint yesterday about recycling of photographs, I did like the cards quite a bit, and was quite happy with the cards I pulled. As I said, there weren't any dupes in the whole box. Good thing for set building, but bad if I'm going to put anything up for trade. I'll certainly be making the attempt to complete the base set, but probably not the SPs aside from the Mets and Jays. Although I believe there are 7 Mets among the 45 SP cards.
Every did seem to come out at the odds on each pack. Another good thing. And since all some people want to see are the hits, I'll open with the autographs.
But, at least I've heard of both these guys. While I love hits, no matter who the player, it really takes the wind out of one's sails somewhat when the player doesn't even have a wikipedia entry.
Now that's nit-picking.
Now, on to the base. I won't subject you to 160+ cards, just my favourites.
My only real complaint is the re-used photos, and if that's my primary complaint, I'll be happy.
