Set Index

NOTE - this is a work in progress.  At some point I hope to list all sets that have been released starting in 2008 with links for the ones I did write ups for.  The section for BBM's "flagship" sets is more detailed than the other listings will be.

Some notes - "Cards Per Team" is the number of "regular" player cards plus the manager and team checklist (if either are included).  Information for sets 2007 and prior was mostly derived from Engel.  For 2008 and later, I relied on either BBM's website or Sports Card Magazine #104.  The insert cards from the Light Packs mentioned by Engel from 2003-2007 are not listed in SCM #104 so there may be Light Pack inserts for post-2007 that are not listed here.
