The Scouts, I plan on doing a future blog on them. It could be tough since I wasn't born when they existed, but I do have a patch from them and the Kansas City Kings.

Nice list, I didn't realize the Oilers lasted 2 year in Tennessee, I was thinking it was only one.

Great concept! The Washington NBA franchise could provide you with several cards- they have had three names that were used for only one season! (Chicago Zephyrs, Chicago Packers, Capital Bullets)

Thank you, Billy K. The short-lived NBA teams have been added. I have no interest in watching/collecting Pro Basketball so I didn't think to include NBA teams.
