47 - Ray Sheppard - I pulled two copies of this card.
35 - Igor Kravchuk
158 - Jeff Brown
94 - Kevin Todd
52 - Bernie Nicholls - the player Rangers traded for to get Mark Messier
26 - Joe Nieuwendyk - good looking horizontal shot
136 - Kerry Huffman - instead airbrushing they slapped traded to his new team. It's better that way. If there was a series 2 like it was planned he might in it with his new team colors.
189 - Wendel Clark
195 - Cliff Ronning - one of best players in NHL 94 game
87 - Kirk Muller
85 - Patrick Roy - one of premier top goalies to the end
183 - Grant Fuhr - another great action shot with Fuhr making a save
14 - Tom Draper
133 - Mike Ricci - another "traded to another team" card
33 - Ed Belfour
1 - Mario Lemieux - the man who saved the Penguins twice
203 - Calle Johansson
61 - Bobby Holik
74 - Tony Granato
221 - Ted Donato - after his playing career he went full circle coaching at his alma matta Harvard
118 - Tony Amonte
237 - Shawn McEachern
77 - Dave Gagner
78 - Mark Tinordi
115 - Adam Graves - his goal scoring help lead Rangers to the Cup in 94.
79 - Craig Ludwig
254 - NHL Pro Set Hockey Clinic - card of themselves doing hockey clinics through 22 cities. Randy Ladouceur is shown with half of Bobby Holik body.
257 - Brian Propp - a milestone subset on player's milestone accomplishment during 91-92 season. Propp went into real estate after his career. You can purchase his VoxxLife items on his website.
262 - Joe Mullen - scored his 400th goal in March 17, 1992 against Oilers
15 (of 15) - Luciano Borsato - Gold Team Leaders insert set. He didn't get on base set card and likely be part of cancelled series 2. He end up being on insert which is surprising. He didn't lead the team in goals and assists and was ninth in total points for Jets.
On their third try Pro Set manage get its hockey design right. It was end of the line for Pro Set not long this set was released. Laugh for their lack of quality control and overproduction I have fond memories of them. They were first hockey set I seen mass sold in 1990. If it wasn't for Pro Set I wouldn't know more about hockey outside of Gretzky and Lemieux.

166 - Michel Goulet - in Pro Set fashion they slapped "Prospect" on a 14 year veteran. They never corrected it. He played two more seasons before call it a career. Went in the Hall of Fame in 1998. Great looking card of him wearing Blackhawks throwback. No stats on the backs. Just mention of a player's highlights.
164 - Brent Sutter - one of six Sutter brothers in the league. Went on become a coach
187 - Brian Propp - 5-time All-Star waiting for his shift
181 - Bob Kudelski
182 - Brian Benning
183 - Mike Donnelly - face off time. Also photo looks a bit dark.
220 - Greg Paslawski - this is one of those cards where darkness in the background worked. The light shines on the player.
219 - Jacques Cloutier - overhead shot of Cloutier trying to make a save
289 - Terry O'Reilly - former Bruins player and coach featured as celebrity captain. Fitting as he wears throwback Bruins sweater.
255 - Josef Beranek - an actual prospect. Played 9 seasons in the league before spending remainder of his career in Czech League. Part of 98 Olympic gold medal winning Czech team
211 - Garry Galley
279 - Mike Richter - great looking card wearing All-Star Wales jerseys. He manned the pipes in the entire 90s decade for Rangers helping them to 94 Stanley Cup title.
The set got good photo selection. You can easily find a box to your disposal.
