1994 Donruss - Joe Murphy
2001 Prizm McDonald's - Jarome Iginla - Shiny!

2019 UD - Jujhar Khaira
2008 Victory Game Breakers - Olli Jokinen
2016 UD - Justin Williams

1994 Pinnacle - Greg Adams
1992 UD - Calle Johansson - The final 2/14 content of the repack, and despite being a junk wax era card, it was a need.

1993 Parkhurst - Mike Richter
1999 SPA - Andrew Brunette
2012 ITG H&P - Jayden Hart

2009 McDonald's - Dion Phaneuf - Triple food issue!
2002 Topps - Kamil Piros - The obligatory player I had no memories at all of.

2005 Diary of a Phenom - Sidney Crosby - I can't complain about a random Crosby appearance.
2007 McDonald's - Iginla/Kiprusoff/Phaneuf
2004 ITG Franchises - Curt Bennett - The final Franchises card from the repack.
1995 Bowman - Petr Sykora

2018 UD - Samuel Girard
2019 MVP Blue - Teddy Blueger
2019 UD - John Tavares
2016 UD - Joe Colborne
2017 UD - Troy Brouwer - And the final card.

On the whole, not as many cards from my favourite repack sets (Franchises/TYIH) as last time, but a couple surprising 2/14 additions and some solid hits still make it a worthwhile bust. 

There you have it!
