As an anti-Flyer fan, do we really need this???
There are probably a few cards in this I would not mind, but then there are some, I just would have no interest in.
I don't like single team focuses like this. I understood why they did the Original 6 products, but this is ? Like many teams there is not a storied history of more than 45 years. Many others came in around the same time and have done more like the Islanders, Oilers, etc. so why focus on this one? Why not do an expansion product or something or pick another decade like Decade 70s, 60s, 90s?
