Completed insert set – 2011 Goodwin Champions Figures of Sport

27 12 2011

This is the 2nd of 2 “standard” insert sets in 2011 Goodwin Champions; unlike the last one, this one actually is about sports!

Info about the set

Set description:  Die-cut cards of Sports Heroes in 2 separate designs intended to look 3 dimensional.  The “common” cards are cut to look like a cylinder, while the last 4 cards are cut to look like a box.

Set composition:  18 cards, 1:20 odds (2011 Goodwin Champions) – Cards #15-18 are rarer

Hall of Famers:  8.  Jerry Rice, Mia Hamm, Randy Couture, Bobby Orr, Ozzie Smith, Michael Jordan, Nolan Ryan and Wayne Gretzky.  All are Hall of Famers in their respective sports.

How I put the set together:

  • 2 cards from 2 hobby boxes
  • 1 card from a blaster
  • 6 cards from a card show
  • 2 cards from Sportlots
  • 7 cards from Check Out My Cards

Card that completed my set:  #FS-18 – Wayne Gretzky

This was one the card I got from Check Out My Cards in December.

Thoughts on the set:  A pretty cool set.  Upper Deck is doing what it can with Goodwin Champions – and they put a solid group together and a cool design that’s different from what I’ve seen.  I like that they only have two insert sets – so this product was very collectible.

Best card (my opinion):  #FS-17 – Nolan Ryan.

That’s an interesting set. I like the Ryan of course and who doesn’t like Hamm. Congrats on completing another goal.
