Checklist Update - New players and cards

The checklists have been updated. I thought I had a comprehensive list and it was going to be easy to keep up with it... just check some Cougar legends like Olajuwon and Drexler and some of the more recent players to make the pros like Alridge and Avery, and the list is complete. Boy was I wrong.

This update includes 342 new cards. Donnie Avery has the most new cards with 77. Some other existing athletes with new cards include Anthony Alridge (15), Otis Birdsong (7), Michael Bourn (4), Clyde Drexler (20), Elvin Hayes (8), Brad Lincoln (40), Hakeem Olajuwon (33), and Chris Snyder (2).

But this checklist update is about more than athletes previously on the list. This update includes the addition 35 baseball players who never made it to the major leagues. So who is the ultimate University of Houston collector? These 35 players have 133 minor league and prospect cards.

The checklist now includes 269 Cougar athletes and 14,336 cards and collectibles. There's something for everyone. As usual, newly added cards and players are highlighted in color so they're easy to spot.
