I'm not a walking sports encyclopedia but I know a great deal about each of the following athletes. I'm guessing at least half of the four athletes below are athletes you haven't heard of:
260 Cambiaso, Adolfo Polo
264 Coppi, Fausto Cycling
275 Gonzalez, Juan Gomez Soccer
276 Granaglia, Umberto Bocce

I am thrilled that a sports card manufacturer even considers the inclusion of these athletes. While there are some athletes on the list I've never heard of, mainly from sports I am not a big follower of (i.e. boxing), I always research all athletes included so I can appreciate their inclusion in Sportkings.
Perhaps, you should research the 12 athletes you have never heard of and add a volume to your encyclopedia.
