Impression:

Base set has been increased by 50 cards to total 200. The tribute cards are a nice touch (way overdue in the case of Luc Bourdon).

The size of the Game Jersey swatches are also impressive, especially in the case of the Super-Series, where it takes up half of the card.

One thing that continually pisses me off is that the Game Jerseys are not serial numbered (even though they say they are limited numbers). The base set could be bigger to draw more appeal to minor and junior league player/team collectors.

Overall, this is a nice product for anyone who collects junior and minor league players, though.
