But there are other sports out there. One thing I learned from NFL trading cards this season already is that they are so much better than baseball cards are right now.
So, I am looking at everything coming out. Not just baseball.
Most recently, 2010-11 Upper Deck Hockey Series 1.
As I scanned listings of the cards, this one popped right out at me.
The action photo is great on this card. It's up close, right in your face. I love the look of concentration on his face. So, it got me to check out more cards.
Typical type of inserts, but still great photography.
Here's one of the base cards, which is also typical Upper Deck. They used this design with baseball. It's crisp and clean, but I think there were problems viewing the silver lettering - if I remember correctly.
Here are the jersey cards, which to me has always been a bit lacking. What more can you do with jersey cards? I don't know. But plain colored jerseys, no matter what color, or always a little on the boring side to me.
I can't really tell the size of the jersey based on the picture, but I would be surprised if it was bigger than a quarter.
However, I would like to hear from the hockey fans. What do you guys think?
