Another year, another 2/14 post where I do a Top 10 countdown of some of the additions to my birthday collection from the past year. The rules for inclusion are:
1) The card must have hit the market, in some form, over the past year.
2) It must be in hand.
3) Only one appearance per person.
And we're off:
I'm just throwing this in here because I like the jersey design. I'm just going to hope that there's some sort of Enrique Hernandez thing going on with the guy's name and move on from this.
The former #1 pick's card totals in 2021 consisted solely of this appearance in NCAA Immaculate. But at least he got a nice big swatch out of it, and in this case, a perfect 'ruby' parallel to go along with it.
Kicker card! Bills card! That's terrific Bass!
count for the collection, cards featuring Danai in the role do. And it strengthens her lead in the 'misc' numbers portion.
The best thing about his cards is that if dupes end up in my hand, I can add him to my Canadians in the NBA collection, or send them to an Oregon collector. Unfortunately for Eugene, he suffered an injury in the G-League and was waived by Dallas.
Another double hit! Ryan MacInnis is both a 2/14 baby, and a Kitchener Rangers alum. He's also the son of another alum, Hall-of-Famer Al MacInnis. This ends up as the oldest card in this countdown, as 19-20 Clear Cut didn't drop until March of 2021. With all sorts of releases pushed back in hockey for this season (OPC, which usually comes out in early fall releases next week), so there will be some more base cards of 21-22 hockey in next year's countdown.
But the bonus that guaranteed this the top spot:
And there you have it!
