Default Which 48 atheletes do you want to see in Sportkings Series G?

Thought I'd start this thread as a informal poll/survey of who people would like to see appear in the next series of Sportkings.

Please post your list of 48 athletes....DO NOT POST INDIVIDUAL ATHLETES OR LONGER/SHORTER LISTS.

My list of forty-eight:

Christy Mathewson (baseball)
Walter Johnson (baseball)
Rogers Hornsby (baseball)
Lou Gehrig (baseball)
Mickey Mantle (baseball)
Willie Mays (baseball)
Hank Aaron (baseball)
Bob Feller (baseball)
Warren Spahn (baseball)
Sandy Koufax (baseball)
Willie McCovey (baseball)
Otto Graham (football)
Terry Bradshaw (football)

Jozy Altidore. he's becoming the face of US National team on the world's most popular sport. can't think of a more glaring sports card auto needed in the hobby and would be huge with the World Cup coming up again.

and Mike Krzyzewski. only cert auto came from 2001 Fleer GOTG. the man has 4 national titles and is the all time wins leader in men's college basketball. until i can get one a decent price from Fleer, i'm hoping he signs for another set in the future.

I agree. He'd make a great addition to any card product that included the sport of basketball.
