Mail Day! Mix

I picked out a small mix of cards from a little over a month ago and received them today, orange envelope packed and all.  Four cards came to be exact; but I accidently ordered a 96-97 Steve Yzerman/Jim Carey Sudden Death card, a card which I already had coming in the mail.

1993-94 Leaf Hat Trick Artists #1 of 10 - Mario Lemieux Title Card.  I first laid eyes on this card from a blog post over at Shoebox Legends; showcasing the entire set of these Leaf Hat Trick Artists cards.  It was cardboard love from first sight and I just had to have it for myself.  I like everything about this card; my favorite player in an unordinary photo shoot-esque pose, top hat tucked underneath his arm with an array of vintage hats lying on the ice in celebration of a hat trick hanging out there in the background.  You don't see cards like this in every set.

1993-94 Leaf Hat Trick Artists #4 of 10 - Mario Lemieux.  I just had to grab the base card of the Lemieux from the Hat Trick Artists set as well.  A great looking card that I picked up for under a buck; to be honest all the photo shots from this insert lot look great and worth trying to put together.

1984-85 Topps #51 - Wayne Gretzky.  I think I was still on my Gretzky kick at the time and liked the look of this card and really wanted it as part of my collection.  On checkoutmycards I was happily able to purchase it at a very low price.
