New Year's Resolution - Set Suggestions
One of the things on my list was to start and finish a set, preferably an auto and/or mem set. Here are some qualifications:
1) Vertical layout
2) 50 cards or less
3) Not super high-end (No The Cup)
4) Relatively affordable (Again, no The Cup)
5) Good mix of players, both current and retired if possible
6) No impossible-to-find SSPs such as 06-07 Parkhurst
7) Not slabbed (No ITG Ultimate Memorabilia, HSHS, etc.)
Let's hear those suggestions! CONVINCE ME. Once there are a few solid options, I will make another thread with the vote.

No sir, though I guess 2005-06 or more current. Or maybe 03-04 at the earliest.

There are 100 cards in the set, which is more than you stated, but there are also retired players like Belfour and Lemieux. There are also a few rookies like Pickard and Glennie. The mix of players is pretty varied for today's guys.
This set does NOT model the 100 card base set. So I think it is a set that would be pretty unique from other sets that are out there.

Miscs75 - love the look of them but they are horizontal.
JVW - love it. The number of cards is actually flexible, I just said 50 because I have a display case that holds 50. I actually just bought a Lehtonen for $2 shipped! Might look into that.
Keep the suggestions coming folks!

Cool idea! If you want the cards to include memorabilia and an auto I think this set is pretty cool looking and has a nice mix of current/retired players. It's also #/50 and should be pretty affordable...

I agree with JVW, the Fabrics of the Game Team Diecut would look really sweet. More than 50 in the set, but they can come pretty cheap as the SPs in the set are all lower end not-as-expensive players.
The challenge in building this set (could be a positive or negative depends on you) is the lack of Certified being broken.
Hope you have fun with whatever you decide to go with :)
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR Stephen Harper, Frazer McLaren, Nicklas Backstrom, and any Lacrosse cards!

12-13 Certified looks like a lot of people like it, the die cuts and auto jerseys are both great options. If there was an auto die cut version that might be the one! Haha
Any more suggestions???
