180-card collection combines the old and the new. You'll find several top prospects including a few choice Flyers' picks. Three standout future stars - centers Mike Richards and Jeff Carter and goaltender Antero Niittymaki - made the cut.
Richards currently plays for the Kitchener Rangers and is a scoring machine. Niittymaki has seen some time with the Flyers and was called up several times while notching 24 wins with the AHL Phantoms. Carter is perhaps the most touted of the three. Currently with the Greyhounds of the OHL, he's putting up solid numbers. His performance in 2003-04 also earned him a shot with the Flyers, and his future is bright. With the 'Hounds he's already lighting the lamp in grand fashion. In just 17 games he has 10 goals and 14 assists. That's prime, and you can bet the Flyers' management team is foaming at the mouth to get those numbers into their stat books.
As a card collector, I just became aware of this set recently. Stefan Ruzicka also is in the set. As for Heroes featured, Besides Clarkie, there's also Barber and Bernie. Also names listed have autographed cards that you could pull. As for Richards and Carter, they have emblem cards you can find. In fact, I have seen some really cool Carter emblem cards that have been pulled. A really nice set so far. Many collectors were wondering for months what the companies would do with the Lockout, but BAP seems to have made a hit with this set.
