TOP 60 CARDS (Part 2) - #55-51

This is proving to be one of my favourite segments now, today we are gonna look at five new cards. Some are cool designs, some are weird coincidences and some are just damn cool. Let's go...

#55 - 2002-03 Pacific McDonalds "Glove Side Net-Fusions" Evgeni Nabokov (#6)

Yes this is a card from McDonalds, there are mixed reactions that come from these cards but there have been some really cool designs. This one features a die-cut glove with actual string attached. Looks pretty cool and this is possibly a set I would try and complete in the future. Another Net-Fusions insert will be coming up also.

#54 - 1994-95 Pinnacle Sylvain Turgeon (#288)

This card was part of my very first post. I've also seen this card featured on various other blogs. In case you're wondering and don't want to read the entire post that was linked, Patrick Kane is the little boy on the far right hand corner smiling. That's the only reason why this card is BV'd at $15.

#53 - 2007-08 UD McDonalds "In the Crease" Ryan Miller (#ICRM)

Another McDonalds insert this time from the Upeer Deck era. I really like cards that you can see through WHEN DONE WELL, and this card was designed well. Plus this card was released when Miller was considered the strongest goalie in the NHL.

#52 - 1990-91 Score Jan Erixon (#343)

"SNIPER!" "PLAYMAKER!" "ENFORCER!"...shadow? Mr. Erixon - you're one lucky man! Any young aspiring hockey player doesn't want to score goals, or set up beautiful plays, or even fight! They want to be called a "Shadow" just like you. Congrats, I wish my name was on that card!

#51 - 2006-07 UD Be A Player Patrick O'Sullivan RC AUTO /10 (#205)

This is officially the first AUTO in my top 60. This card came into my collection fairly recently in a box break of 2006-07 BAP. This card is in my top 60 because this is tied for my lowest numbered card in my collection. Someday I hope to get into the single digits but for now anything numbered at /10 will be accepted with open arms.

  1. Very nice. That Turgeon is great, the look on Kane's face is priceless.
