Okay Score. You are doing a fairly decent job in picking "young" players. That shouldn't be too hard. On the "Superstar" side of things, you've proven that it's a little tougher. Maybe you'll pick up your game as we continue forward with the next 22 selections. Kind of like the NHL Draft.

As of this writing, Zistle has documented 301 different cards for the veteran.
