2004 Upper Deck Disney Treasures

Since I can't think of anything more pointless than collecting hockey cards, I'm staging a coup over this blog. As George Costanza said, "All right, you wanna get nuts? Come on. Let's get nuts!" Today's pack is the collector's equivalent of a trip to my non-existent house in the Hamptons.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
198 Dr. Dawson: The Great Mouse Detective

255 The Vultures: The Jungle Book
WP18 Winnie the Pooh Insert: Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day

259 Tod: The Fox & The Hound
254 The March Hare: Alice in Wonderland

These cards are badass! Division into heroes and villains is a smashing idea. You get nice, big pictures taken from animation cels, stats on the back revealing the character's first appearance, and fairly decent copy. So much more fulfilling than "guy on ice with stick, repeat."

Flame away!

That might be one of the most classic posts I've ever seen. Outstanding! :)

hahahaha great Seinfeld reference...as you opened the pack, I bet you could hear George telling the Rosses "it's on foot from here."

By the way, I'm surprised you didn't pull a Winnie the Pooh movie set-used honey card.

I loved the Seinfeld reference but you angered me with the slam on hockey cards. SERENITY NOW!!!!!!

your post was good as usual, but with one small error... there is one thing more useless than hockey cards... basketball cards. It's not Upper Deck, it's Utter Boredom.

A villains/heroes insert set in baseball would be a riot!

The March Hare is a villain? In a "drugs are bad, mmmmkay" way I suppose.

Hmmm, now what's the best way to escalate the upcoming civil war on A Pack A Day? This requires careful planning...
