I enjoy trying to put sets together.
Maybe a HHOF set??? Have every player that made the hockey hall of fame with their complete stats.
If you wanted parallel cards, players who played for multiple teams could have a parallel card with them pictured in the uniform of each team. The more teams they played for the more parallels. However the backs of the cards could be identical. The base card would be the first team the player played on. So Gretzky would have 4 cards. His base card would have him pictured in an oilers' jersey. Then he would have parallel cards with him pictured in LA, St. Louis and Rangers.
Not having autos or mem would make this cheap to produce. Would others buy it?
Is this something ITG would be able to make since all the players are retired?

My choice would be an auto set of all living HOFers, all with on-card autos. The set would have some rules:
1) No SSPs. I want everyone to have a chance to put together the set, not just those with deep pockets.
2) No parallels, gold versions, die-cut versions, or anything else. There can be a non-auto base set, but no parallels for the autographed cards.
3) No trying to include deceased players through the use of cut autos.
4) No stickers.
5) Cards aren't overly thick, maybe 50-pt.
6) All cards are licensed, and players are included in the uniform with which they are most commonly associated.
7) Include not just players, but coaches, builders, etc.
