2022 Adventures in Repacks Part 7.1 - Hanging Around


Back to the box of repacks, and this. I break these into 4 posts. 25 cards each, with each lead by the visible card.

Not a bad starter card with a Canvas entry, dating to before they became plentiful on COMC thanks to e-packs. The photo is surprisingly dull for the insert set, though.
Nothing too notable in the first grouping of 8, although I'll always give UD a thumbs up for game dating most of their card photos, across a lot of their flagship releases.  Both rinksiders seem puzzled by whatever is happening on that Staal photo, and you really can't blame them.
There's the Bowman streak that you'd expect in a repack, but it isn't a bad grouping of players. 3 of the 4 are HOFers. Poor Patrick Flatley is the outsider. I'll tolerate some Bowman if it also means a nice collection of Heroes & Prospects with their minor league jerseys. And the Owen Sound Attack's entry is a fine one. That photo on Gagner makes it look like a hooking penalty is coming his way.
And the final group of cards. That Desjardins is the second insert card in this post, and is remarkably understated for a mid 90s Fleer entry. I was also stunned by what these were going for on COMC.

There you have it!

  1. Cool to see the father/son Stastny duo. The Bowman Roy is cool too.
