Probert Epitomizes ITG Enforcers

by In The Game Trading Cards - Monday, December 05, 2011

Bob Probert was as tough as any player who ever laced on a pair of skates. He had an outstanding career playing 935 games over 16 seasons for Chicago and Detroit and accumulating 3300 penalty minutes including 231 fights. His battles on the ice against Wendel Clark, Link Gaetz, Stu Grimson and Tie Domi were legendary. Everyone has their own favorite Bob Probert fight. Bob Probert will headline the checklist of players featured in In The Game’s – Enforcers. We will even have limited numbers of Probert autograph cards with Chicago, Detroit and dual autograph cards of some of his greatest battles. Bob Probert epitomizes what our Enforcers product is all about.


Each pack of Enforcers will contain five authentic autographs. There will be over 80 different Enforcers on the authentic autograph checklist including; Dave Semenko, Joey Kocur, Georges Laraque, Dave Manson, Basil McRae, Rob Ray, Marty McSorley, Brad May, Jim Kyte, Chris Nilan, and many, many more.

Enforcers - A tough set to collect

by In The Game Trading Cards - Wednesday, November 30, 2011

In The Game will be starting the New Year with a tough act to follow, Enforcers.


A product dedicated to hockey's tough guys, the players that open up the ice for the superstars.


Enforcers will be released mid-January and due to a small production run, it might be as tough to find as it will be to collect. In The Game does not put redemption cards in their products for autographs, so the checklist will be announced prior to release date as the autographs are received.


Count these five Enforcers in:


Wendel Clark - a fan favorite from the start in Toronto, Clark exhibited a great deal of toughness and played every game like it was his last. The opposition never wanted to mess with him because they knew he wasn't about to back down from anyone.


Stan Jonathan - while he wasn't anywhere near being the biggest member of any team he played on, it could be argued that Jonathan had the biggest heart of them all. His memorable tussle with the much-larger Pierre Bouchard of the Montreal Canadiens is still shown to this day as he unleashed a flurry of punches that brought down the big defender.


Joe Kocur - the Detroit Red Wings were loaded with tough and talented players in the 1980s and Kocur proved to be among the game's elite enforcers. He paced all players with 377 penalty minutes in 1985-86 and is a three-time Stanley Cup champion!


Jimmy Mann - when John Ferguson was rebuilding the Winnipeg Jets after the death of the World Hockey Association, one of his key building blocks was Mann, who he selected in the first round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. He was an instant hit at the pro level as he led the league in penalty minutes during his rookie season of 1979-80.


Dave Semenko - if Semenko had never played for the Edmonton Oilers, opposing teams might have run over players like Wayne Gretzky and Jari Kurri, so it was his job to ensure that the offensive dynamos around him were protected. Considering that he once stepped into the ring to fight Muhammad Ali in an exhibition bout, there is little doubt in regard to his overall toughness and athleticism.


We are also pleased to reveal two more exciting game-used memorabilia insert sets. The first is what you would expect from Enforcers, game-used Fight Straps. Each Fight Strap card will be numbered out of 8.



The next game-used memorabilia insert set will be a 1/1 Fight Strap Dome Fastener. On each card the piece of memorabilia will come right through the card (front to back). We've never done this before.



These two insert sets join the three others that have been announced in a previous Blog; Instigators, Combatants and Tough Franchise. Enforcers will be a real hockey fan's product. It's not the same top 50 players that are put in product after product. Enforcers is going to be a tough set to collect, but it will be worth the effort.

Enforcers - The Toughest Set To Collect in the History of Hockey Card Collecting

by In The Game Trading Cards - Friday, November 18, 2011

Enforcers from In The Game will be the toughest set to collect in the history of hockey trading cards.


Just the thought of Schultz, McSorley, Twist, Brashear in action scares the heck out of me.


Fighting in hockey is as old and important as the blueline. It's the one event in a game that always brings the crowd to its feet and Enforcers will celebrate the blue-collar players who toil in the trenches and work to give the stars more skating room.


How many goals would Gretzky have without Semenko? Each box of Enforcers will feature 5 autograph cards, that's right 5 autograph cards of some very tough customers.



Also included in each box will be 2 game-used memorabilia cards. Featuring the following insert sets; Instigator, Combatants (Dual), Fight Strap (1/8) Fight Strap (1/1 - big surprise), Tough Franchise (Quad).




Each box of Enforcers also will contain 5 limited base cards. Subsets of the base card set include; Record Holders,Tale of the Tape, Bloody Battles and Tough Franchise.



That's right 12 cards per box. This product will be hand-packed by In The Game to insure that each box contains the exact number of cards noted above. There are no redemptions to wait for or substitutions to accept, just the toughest hockey card set ever.


This product will be limited and allocations to distributors will be based on pre-orders. Contact your distributor or your local card shop to let them know that you have dropped your gloves and will be collecting Enforcers by In The Game.


Coming early 2012. In The Game - The history of hockey on trading cards.

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.

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.
