I received the rest of my Series Two team sets of ABL cards last week. A couple of quick observations before details of the Adelaide Bite Series Two team set.
- Whereas the Series One sets were exclusively Australian players (except for Canberra) drawn from photos taken last season, the Series Two sets mainly feature import players from the current season with a small number of Aussies.
- The cards were once again packaged in hard plastic card holders. This didn't stop my cards being slightly damaged in transit. Despite the card holders being bubble wrapped, the Post Office had managed to damage two card holders - one smashed that badly that it literally fell aaprt when I tried to open it. Unfortunately some of my sets therefore have "dinged' corners from these broken card holders.
- Series One featured a postage discount for orders containingonly cards from the online ABL store. This no longer seems available for Series Two. Series One cost me $6 to get 5 sets shipped. Series Two cost me $18 to get 5 team sets shipped. I emailed the ABL online store to see if there was still meant to be a "cards only order" discount on shipping, but didn't receive a reply.
