Christmas Cards 2017

by Billy Kingsley - 25 cards (Last updated on Dec. 30, 2017)

1. 2007-08 SP Rookie Threads - Scripted in Time #SIT-RC Rodney Carney

The Scripted in Time silver foil really scanned well here.

2. 2016-17 Panini Complete - Gold #263 Ray McCallum

My first/only gold parallel from 16-17 Complete. I've done 4 blasters.

4. 2016-17 Panini Threads - Authentic Threads #35 Bradley Beal

I still enjoy pulling a jersey card... especially when it's from a player/team I don't have much of.

5. 2016-17 Panini Threads - Rookie Signage #2 Jaylen Brown

My box of Threads was a Jaylen Brown hotbox. Got this auto, the insert and parallel in this list and the base card.

6. 2016-17 Panini Threads - Team Threads Rookie Die Cuts #2 Jaylen Brown

These are a neat concept. Ideally Panini would use these to highlight the various special jerseys the teams wear, but they can't be bothered to even issue actual sets anymore, so I don't have much hope.

7. 2016-17 Upper Deck - Clear Cut #387 Brayden Schenn

These clear plastic cards are 1:90 packs, and are awesome! First one I've seen...I liked them so much I bought two more on COMC.

8. 2016-17 Upper Deck - UD Signatures #UDS-LD Leon Draisaitl

I think my favorite part of this is the woman with the pizza in the background

9. 2017 Panini Absolute - Action Packed Spectrum Red #AP13 Carl Edwards

This card apparently doesn't exist, as it was not on the checklist.

10. 2017 Panini Absolute - Tools of the Trade #TT-TB Trevor Bayne

A few years back every blaster I got had a David Ragan hit. This year it was Trevor Bayne. I'm not complaining, just making note.

Ohhh, 1991-92 Pro Set PUCK Messier didn't make the highlight  Seems like you had a very good Christmas.  Have a happy New Year and best of everything in 2018.

Thank you Chuck, I hope you have an excellent 2018 as well! I only included cards I added to my collection on Christmas day, I didn't include the ones I got before hand.

Whoooooaaaaaa...Panini is making Action Packed cards??  I gotta get some.  The only pack of racing cards I've ever bought was the old Action Packed set.  Now I want a new one!

Also, I can't see Eddie Shore and not think of "Old Time Hockey". Toe Blake, Dit Clapper, Eddie Shore, those guys were the greats.  Billy, you need to watch Slap Shot if you've never seen it.

The Action Packed cards come one per blaster...but they are not embossed! I still want to complete them. The 1994 Action Packed set is one of my all-time favorite sets ever. I haven't seen the movie yet but I'm sure I will at some point!
