I'm pretty much a walking sports encyclopedia (as my wife and friends would tell you), but when a quarter of the checklist is people I have never heard of, that's a bit much.
Fair enough. I wasn't too clear on your post, I thought you had made a typo and meant you buy simply for resale! Now that I read it over, I see I missed your point .

The base cards do look great, but I do agree with you, that the checklist certainly isn't loaded. That being said, the cost of acquisition, as mentioned by Dr. Price, was probably very steep, if they (the athletes) even considered it.
I will leave my signature the same until the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup. In short, I will never change my signature.
