Looking at the base card checklist, it appears that this season’s set will be heavy on the prospects and light on the heroes. Only 4 Heroes and 15 AHL Grads appear in the 150-card set. The other 131 cards are of Prospects.
What grabbed my attention was the inclusion of a Hero by the name of Larry Kwong. I had no idea who this gentlemen is, but after a little research leaned that he was the first Chinese-Canadian to play in the NHL, when he appeared in one minute of one game for the New York Rangers during the 1947-48 season.
As much as I would like to buy a box of cards by In the Game, their high price point–due to the inclusion of memorabilia and autograph cards–precludes me from doing so, I might still try to pick up a complete base set.
