  • Print advertisement for Series 2 featured multiple cards on fire over a mound of ice and the tagline, "Get 'Em 'Cause They're Hot!"
  • A standard pack contains 15 cards.
  • There were over 100 errors in this set.
  • This was the largest set released until 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee.
  • Series 2 cards were cut backside up, while series 1 cards were cut conventionally (front side up)
  • The famous "Stanley Cup mark" seen in the Aaron Broten card was made by a rubber roller moving a not yet dried sheet of cards. This mark can be seen in other cards in the set (Moe Mantha, etc) and has recently been found in at least one series 2 card as well (but the mark is on the front as those sheets were printed backside up).

Dont get me wrong Proset was a great set that had so many players but it was also so mass produced that there would be errors. slight color variations and speckles on the cards i would not consider errors. wrong names, wrong pictures and miss cuts i would consider errors. i have 18 Belfour cards with 6 of them having different color tones, spackles and imperfect letters. that set had so many of those you would not be able to list them all that were not perfect. just my thoughts on it.
