Product Preview – 2011 ITG Heroes and Prospects Baseball
The time is approaching. Spring training 2011. In The Game is proud to unveil more of their 2011 Heroes and Prospects Baseball Hits.
“Over the past few years, In The Game’s Heroes and Prospects releases have remained among the most popular on the hockey card market and as the brand heads into its seventh season, we wanted to extend it into the baseball card market,” said In The Game’s President, Dr. Brian Price. “Our deep appreciation for the amazing history of the sport of baseball allows us to also go after some great names that are sure to appeal to collectors and we look forward to producing something that is sure to stand out in the marketplace.”
Each box of 2011 In The Game Heroes and Prospects Baseball Hits will contain five cards – all hits! Either authentic autographs or authentic game-used memorabilia. On average, there will be 4.5 Prospect Autographs per box and every other box will contain one Heroes Cut Signature or Heroes Game-Used Memorabilia card featuring some of the greatest players to step out onto the diamond.
“We feel that the hobby is always moving in different directions, by making this product, it allows us to focus on what many collectors want the most – the ‘hits’,” said Price. “The limited nature of the product is sure to create a buzz among collectors and we look forward to a bright future in this part of the trading card market.”
The premier edition of 2011 ITG Heroes and Prospects Baseball Hits will be extremely limited. Confirmed prospects for this landmark release include Tim Beckham and Mike Trout. Series One will feature both autograph cards and game-used memorabilia cards of Mike Trout who was just named the #1 outfield prospect by Major League Baseball.
Also look for Heroes Cut Signatures or limited Heroes Game-Used Memorabilia cards. The company has put together a great group of living and deceased legends for this release and the Cuts will include such names as Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, and Hank Aaron.
“Who knows what direction that the success of 2011 Heroes and Prospects Baseball Hits will take us,” said Price. “If our new products appeal to enough collectors, I would love to see an expansion into the basketball and football prospect market as well. Only time will tell if we can accomplish this, but with the support of collectors we can certainly work hard to deliver what they want to see.”
2011 In The Game Heroes and Prospects Baseball Hits will be released on February 24th, 2011 and is currently available for sale at Canada Card World.
