Here Come Those Crazy Canucks 
 

Do good things always come to those who wait? Yes, in the case of In The Game-Canadiana that is doubly true.

 

While waiting for some autographs to be returned from Europe, Dr. Price's son-in-law had house-guests while visiting Canada. During diner Dr. Price popped the question, "would the two of you like to be in Canadiana?"

 

Yes they both replied and now collectors will be able to find authentic Autograph Cards of Chantal Kreviazuk and Raine Maida in our product, two Canadian music icons.

 

While collectors are waiting for the release of this product, Dr. Price upped the ante by putting three inserts in each box instead of the advertised two.

  

Each pack will contain NINE cards, one Canadiana Autograph Card, one Canadiana Memorabilia Card, six Canadiana Premium Base Cards plus one additional insert! 

 

Canadiana Autograph Cards

Canadiana is a great product for autograph collectors. There are three different autograph inserts sets; Cut Signatures, Between The Seams and Canadiana Autographs.

 

The Cut Signature checklist is simply outstanding, featuring such hard to find autographs as; Alexander Graham Bell, James Naismith, Charles Best, Billy Bishop, Gilles Villeneuve, Guy Lombardo, George Knudsen, Louis St. Laurent, Mack Sennett, Roderick L. Haig-Brown, William Lyon Mackenzie King, Pierre Trudeau, Oscar Peterson and many more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Between The Seams is the second of the three autographed insert sets. Between The Seams features many of the Canucks signing on pieces of baseballs.

 

The results "seam amazing", judge for yourself.
