This insert set from In The Game's 2008/09 Between The Pipes release has been one that I haven't pursued with a lot of effort, but when I found nine cards on my wantlist from one person...I felt obligated to snag them.
It really is a nice set. The super shiny foil/mirror background really make these pop in person. What I think really left me feeling a little blah about it is the fact that out of the 50 card insert set, only a handful are of NHLers. A lot of junior players and such. Not really my cup of tea. Keeping in mind though that the BTP release focuses on the young up-and-comers makes it an obvious inclusion to the set.
Out of the nine cards I picked up, only two are currently in the NHL. Luongo, who's mask is one of my faves, and Dominik Hasek, who in my opinion shouldn't even be in the set since he technically doesn't even wear a mask - it's a helmet.
Still, it gets me to 17 cards left for the set.
