Important ITG News for Collectors

by In The Game Trading Cards - Friday, March 30, 2012

I have some important news, well maybe not news but reminders for In The Game collectors.

 

Ultimate Giveaway Promotion

 

 

Randomly inserted into packs of UM-11, collectors can find Ultimate Giveaway cards.

 

There are ten different Ultimate Giveaway cards. Each Ultimate Giveaway card depicts a different piece of game-used memorabilia on the front of the card. There are six of each of these cards inserted into the product, each one is a different color.

 

For example there are six different Ultimate Giveaway cards depicting a game-used Brett Hull San Jose All-Star game-used jersey, each one of the six cards is a different color.

 

Each Ultimate Giveaway card qualifies you to win an authentic piece of game-used memorabilia from In The Game. In order to qualify for the “Spin To Win” event at the Spring Expo in Toronto, all Ultimate Giveaway Cards must be received by In The Game no later than April 15, 2012.

 

 

Spin To Win Event

At the Spring Expo in Toronto in the In The Gameland booth, we will spin our In The Game wheel to see who wins the game-used memorabilia.

 

If the color on the wheel matches the card you submit, you will receive the game-used memorabilia. We will continue to spin the In The Game wheel until a winner is declared from the Ultimate Giveaway Cards registered by April 15, 2012.

 

All authentic game-used memorabilia will be given away at the Spring Expo. So please make sure that any Ultimate Giveaway cards you have are in our hands by April 15, 2012. You cannot bring them to the Spring Expo to qualify, they must be sent to us prior to the deadline.

 

Emerald Ice Redemption

 

Collectors of the 2010-11 Between The Pipes are well aware of the error that was made on the back of the Emerald Masked Men cards.

 

The Emerald Version of the Masked Men Cards was announced on the In The Game website as out of 340 of each card; however, 1/1 was printed on the back of each and every Emerald Masked Men card in error.

 

Even though there is nothing that we could have done about this error except apologize, we wanted to give collectors an option to make their Emerald Masked Men cards more valuable.

 

So we created the Emerald Masked Men Redemption Program. All redemptions for the 2010-11 Between The Pipes Emerald Masked Men Redemption” Program must be sent by April 30, 2012. We will not redeem any cards sent after that date and please note, we will also not return cards received after that date.

 

10-11 Between The Pipes He Shoots He Saves Redemption Program

 

"He Shoots, He Saves" Between The Pipes redemption cards can be found inserted in all packs of 2010-11 Between The Pipes except those that contain memorabilia cards. Every "He Shoots, He Saves" redemption card is worth one point.

 

Once you accumulate 200 redemption points, you are eligible to receive a special game-used memorabilia card not available in packs. Redemption points may be redeemed for special Between The Pipes "He Shoots, He Saves" game-used memorabilia cards.

 

There will be 30 of these special Between the Pipes game-used memorabilia cards and each will be individually hand-numbered out of 20. These cards will be sealed in In The Game memorabilia card holders. All redemptions for the 2010-11 Between The Pipes "He Shoots, He Saves" Redemption Program must be sent by April 30, 2012.

 

So don't delay one month to go. So three important dates and all in April. We want to keep all our collectors happy so please don't miss any of these dates. In order to be fair to collectors who send their redemptions on time, we will not be able to extend the deadlines in any of these programs.

 

Thanks again for all your support and especially for the support on our Captain-C product which was SOLD OUT on release day.

Ultimate Memorabilia 11th Edition - Ultimate Giveaway Announced

by In The Game Trading Cards - Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Ultimate Memorabilia 11th Edition presents the Ultimate Giveaway.


Randomly inserted into packs of UM-11, collectors can find Ultimate Giveaway cards. These cards will be inserted to replace the base card of the pack in which they are found.

 

There are ten different Ultimate Giveaway cards. Each Ultimate Giveaway card depicts a different piece of game-used memorabilia on the front of the card. There are six of each of these cards inserted into the product, each one is a different color.    

 

Giveaway Memorabilia

1997 NHL All-Star Game Brett Hull Western Conference Jersey

 

Hull was a starter for the Western Conference at the 1997 NHL All-Star Game in San Jose and this jersey is loaded with colorful patches. He earned one assist that night but the lucky recipient will get to see that the Hall of Famer also autographed it on the inside! 

 

2000-01 Jarome Iginla Calgary Flames Jersey


The only one of this now-retired "Horse Head" style that Jarome wore in 2000-01. Iginla cracked the 30-goal and 70-point mark for the first time that season. Featuring the Atlanta Flames style "A" and lots of wear, this jersey looks like it has been through some epic battles.

 

2005-06 Jason Spezza Ottawa Senators Jersey

At the beginning of the 2005-06 season, the NHL had players wear jerseys with a special patch that were eventually sold to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina. In The Game acquired one of these historic red sweaters, worn by Spezza.


2002-03 Daniel Alfredsson Ottawa Senators Jersey

Alfredsson wore this red Senators jersey for preseason action prior to the 2002-03 campaign and it is a fitting #11 for the Ultimate Memorabilia 11th Edition. Featuring the captain's "C", it also has a nice puck mark on the face of the Senators logo. 

 

1999-00 Teemu Selanne Mighty Ducks of Anaheim Jersey

Selanne scored 85 points for the Mighty Ducks in 1999-00 and the ageless wonder wore this jersey during home games that year. Some of the most outstanding features on this sweater are the NHL 2000 patch and an "A" on the left shoulder. There are also several places where you can see puck marks and other wear.

 

1992-93 Curtis Joseph St. Louis Blues Jersey

Featuring the Stanley Cup centennial patch during the 1992-93 season, this Joseph white jersey looks as if it has been through a war on the ice. It has great character due to puck marks and piling on the front and is from the team's second set from that year.


2004 NHL All-Star Game Shane Doan Western Conference Jersey

The 2004 NHL All-Star Game was held in Minnesota and Doan was a member of the Western Conference squad that year. This style of jersey was only worn in one mid-season Classic and features felt accents on front. It was also signed on the back by the longtime captain of the Phoenix Coyotes.


2001-02 Gillian Apps Team Canada

Apps wore this striking red Team Canada jersey in the games leading up to the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. There is some light game wear on this sweater and it could be a fine addition to the collection of one lucky collector.

Luc Robitaille Los Angeles Kings Helmet


This circa 1993-94 CCM helmet looks like it has been through many road battles and the lucky winner will be surprised to see some small blood stains inside! It still includes the original ITECH visor and Robitaille's number 20 can be found on the back. 

 

Dany Heatley Game-Used Stick

Danny Heatley used this Bauer Tri Flex stick early in his NHL career with the Atlanta Thrashers. Boldly signed by the 2001-02 Calder Trophy winner, it is a one-piece composite and shows plenty of evidence of game use.
