2021 Adventures in Repacks Part 50 - The Finale for 2021
Wednesday, 29 December 2021
I showed off one of the cards from the mailer yesterday as part of a Raptors post. Today, the rest of the goodies!
That was it for the hockey, but not it for the cards vanishing off my not-so-realistic want list. This SSP variation of Vladdy spent about a week or so on there, replacing the Stanley Johnson relic want, before it was replaced by...
my desire to add a Jose Canseco Jays autograph to that collection. Which again disappeared off my list. Some great work in doing damage for that list.
But there were some more generic additions to my PCs. 5 players - 5 new 2/14 cards. The Garrard is a Select version - the only numbered card in this fivesome, being /999.

Raptors of Various Sources
When you have a couple Raptors cards in your COMC to-be-posted and several in your trade box, here's a way to get them all out of the way in a single post.
Even in cartoon form, I have to add any championship themed cards.
As I close in on the moment where he'll actually have cards as a member of the Raptors, here's my second relic card of Scottie Barnes.
Despite being listed with Portland, I'm certainly counting this Norman Powell card towards the ol' PC. He's still a Raptor in the photo, and that's good enough for me!
So, to my trading partners, thanks for these cards, and thanks to my COMC credit for the Siakam, Watson and Barnes!

Just A High-End Vladdy Sr Sorta Sunday
Saturday, 25 December 2021
I was originally going to show off the contents of one of the hobby boxes I had of this, but I'm lazy. So you get this:
Pretty blah for the first card out, but Score's still a solid design, and it does allow me to flashback to my best pull of 2021.
If this were Bowman, I'd call these the paper base cards. That works just fine here as well. I'm automatically going to like any 2021 release that features cardboard fans looking on.
Here's the one-per hanger America's Pastime card.
Now, the collation gets interesting, as a pair of Trevor Story cards appear back-to-back. Gold Standard's baseball debut is my favourite design among these newer base cards.
Mets content! WOO-HOO!
2/14 content! WOO-HOO! This pulsar entry becomes my 12th card of the 2/14 collection newcomer, who only debuted in the binders a little less than 2 months ago.
Plus, pack-pulled additions to that collection are always the most fun.
