That is some cool stuff to open up on a Christmas morn. Thanks David!

* I'm absolutely sure I need at least one, if not all, of these '71 cards for my team set. Since completing at least some of my Vintage Topps team sets was one of my goals for 2007, this is way cool.
Update - yep, needed two of 'em. I only need two more high numbers to finish that one off now.

** I didn't even know Pristine existed in a non-Chrome variety. Eeeeexcellent.
