After the immense hobby success of the In The Game-Used Signature Series in 2003-04, the decision to bring back this hobby favorite with an international twist was a natural one.
"In The Game is always looking to do unique and historical projects," said ITG President Dr. Brian H. Price "this product covers the gamut of International Hockey, something that has not been done before."
Releasing on October 5, 2006, the 2006-07 In The Game-Used International Ice Signature Series is sure to be popular with collectors everywhere featuring some of the greatest players in hockey history in their national uniforms. The scope of the set runs from 1972 to 2006 and has some amazing hobby heroes such as Paul Henderson and Mark Messier along with hot young stars such as John Tavares,
Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel.
Each pack will contain one Autograph card, one Memorabilia card and two base set cards. This attractive base set is made up of 160 cards and has both a Silver and Gold version. The Silver version is limited to 240 copies and will be one of the most limited base sets
ever. The Gold version is limited to 10 copies and is sure to appeal to player collectors.
The Autographs will feature most players in the set and In The Game has searched throughout the globe to track down some of the great names slated for this product. Some of these cards will be extremely limited and the roster boasts names such as Mario Lemieux, Igor Larionov, Brett Hull, Jaromir Jagr and Phil Esposito. Once all of the players slated for the set have signed their autographs, a checklist will be posted on the In The Game website.
Part of the appeal of the Memorabilia cards in this product stems from the fact that many of these cards will feature pieces from jerseys worn during international competition. The fun starts with the Game-Used Jersey, Game-Used Emblem and Game-Used Number cards and it gets even more exciting with popular favorites like Passing The Torch, Game-Used Stick & Jersey, Double Memorabilia, Triple Memorabilia and Complete Jersey.
New Memorabilia card concepts for the 2006-07 In The Game-Used International Ice Signature Series will include International Cornerstones, Best of the Best, Hockey Passport, International Teammates, Canada's Dream Team, Goaltending Glory, International Rivals, My Country My Team, Greatest Moments and Quad Patch.
No Memorabilia card will be limited to more than 100 copies and each card has a limited Gold version. Some Memorabilia cards will also have Autographed versions.
