And now a Special Comment.


There are a million-and-one other things I'd rather be doing than this blogpost. Hell, I don't even collect hockey cards.

The last time I seriously cared about hockey, Ron Hextall was still playing for the Flyers. But I would be shirking in my responsibility if I did not comment on this issue.

A 100-card boxed set where 95% of the boxes are purposefully short a card is, by definition, NOT a "set."

PERIOD.

FULL STOP.

END
OF
DISCUSSION.

That is all. You are now free to more about the cabin.

If the special 100 card is of Gordon Bombay or Dean Youngblood I will light my collection on fire...unless, of course, it's nuflex with a sticker auto on it...

I actually like what Panini has done with hockey this year, but I agree with you on this.

Yeah, I was pretty disappointed to read this as well, and kinda hope the mystery #100 card blows up in their face. Cause Lord knows if enough people buy it, then it will happen more and more. And not just in hockey, either...

I think Jefferson Burdick would see this as business as usual for card companies.

I don't see the problem here. It's a retired player who's never had a card before, not a potential ROY candidate that you have to chase for a PC. It's basically the 661 Strasburg.
