2022 Adventures in Repacks Part 7.2 - Hanging Around

 What's on the other side?

It definitely is an interesting choice as a non-game photo to start things off. Exactly what you'd expect from a UD base card.
That's a lot more horizontal cards than expected. That Hurricanes checklist card was a short-print in that release. Two alternate uniforms in that run of three as well. There's also a throwback design with a Heritage that went to back 30 years to 1971. I always like the "That's what the design would look like for a team that didn't exist at the time" feature of those.
Again, a streak of Heroes and Prospects is so much more interesting than a Bowman streak.  Delmore played almost 300 games in the league, but I had no memory of his career. Forslund was enough of a junk wax era guy that I remembered him, despite about 250 fewer games . 

And the final group. All over the place with this. I wasn't expecting to see the e-pack exclusive Compendium in this, but I'm certain I've seen them in these repacks before. I'm just far too lazy to look for the post(s). And that final Sundin is a food issue card from McDonald's. I can taste the fries in 2002 already! 

There you have it!

  1. I'll check Sharks box scores here and there, but it's been awhile since I've gone to one of their games. In fact... the last time I did, I think Ward was still on the team.
