2005/06-2008/09 U.D. Rookie Class Hockey

In hindsight, this run of sets was going to be tough to complete. So far, I've finished two off completely and am down to single-digits on the other two. I figured this would be fairly easy to do TTM, but then as the names started getting bigger and players started going back to Europe, it didn't take long to realize this would be tougher than I first imagined.

The 2006-07 set was the second set I completed after the 2003-04 Choice AHL Top Prospects set, and the 2007-08 set soon followed. I currently am six cards away from having the whole four-year run completed. Unfortunately those include three future Hall of Famers and three players who went back to their homeland of the postal wasteland of Russia.
