08 09 Champs Blaster

08 09 Champs Hockey Blaster Break, 12 packs for a total of 48 cards. Resembling the old time cigarette cards, all of the inserts are of the "mini" size. Unique to this set is the Natural History Collection inserts, which are animals, fossils, bones and the like.

I'll start with the regular size rookies: (1:2)

As you can see, nobody too thrilling, Voracek is having an ok rookie year.

Mini Rookies: (1:8)

Nodl has seen some time in Philly at LW while Frolik is a regular with the Panthers recording 42 points.

Natural History Collection: (1:6)

The Kakapo is a flightless parrot from New Zealand. They are on the critically endangered list, with 90 known individuals left.

CT-ZP Zach Parise Mini Threads: (1:24)

This is the 2nd Parise jersey for me this season. Quite possibly the smallest swatch I've ever seen.

These are nice cards, with a vintage design and an educational aspect with the Natural History Inserts. Thumbs up.
