1972- The Year in Hockey Product Preview

Product Preview-

In The Game's newest product 1972 - The Year in Hockey belongs to the collector. Collectors in an online survey conducted by In The Game voted 1972 as the most significant year in hockey history and In The Game is committed to creating a product based on the results of this survey.

Once the year was determined, In The Game went to collectors to get their opinions on how they would like to see the product designed and configured.
Never before has a trading card company made a product conceived, configured and designed by collectors.

Here are some of the preliminary product spec:

200 base-card checklist including two checklist cards, 50 different non-memorabilia inserts featuring; Rookies, Born in '72, Past and Present and two other insert sets to be determined, hard-signed autograph cards, game-used memorabilia cards featuring; Game-used Jerseys, Game-Used Emblems, Game-Used Numbers, Lumbergraphs, Forever Linked and others. Famous Fabrics™ inserts including; Scoring Leaders, Playoff Match-Ups, All-Star Teams, Trophy Winners. Designs and checklists will be available in the next few weeks.

"I have had a great time working with collectors on the design and configuration of this product," said ITG President, Dr. Brian H. Price. "This product will be a one-of-a-kind."

I am a big fan of ITG and Dr. Price and hate the fact that UD holds a psuedo monopoly in my second favorite sport. You may have noticed I don't normally post press releases, but occasionally I will in support of ITG.
