In The Game Announces the Class of 2010 Redemption Program

The release of the 2009-10 edition of Heroes and Prospects from In The Game is less than three weeks away and the company is pleased to announce preliminary details about an exciting redemption program that has been added to the product this season.

As hinted at previously, the Class of 2010 non-memorabilia insert cards will have a special redemption feature that could allow collectors to obtain a special limited game-used memorabilia card.

Each Class of 2010 card will feature a foil-stamped number on the back that is between 1 and 30. If the player depicted on the front of the card is drafted at the position noted on the back, collectors can redeem their insert card for a game-used memorabilia card that is limited to just 10 copies! Shrewd prospectors will be trying to predict where their favourite players will be selected are sure to try to scoop up every copy they can.

"While it is rare for In The Game to do a redemption of any kind, we felt that the Class of 2010 cards were more of a new product feature that makes Heroes and Prospects more interactive for collectors," said In The Game's President, Dr. Brian Price. "We think that collectors are going to enjoy looking at the cards they have during the 2010 NHL Draft to see if they are lucky enough to exchange their card for something special."

Included in the Class of 2010 collection are two players that are considered to be neck-in-neck for the first overall position - Taylor Hall of the Windsor Spitfires and Tyler Seguin of the Plymouth Whalers. To determine which players would be included in this new insert set, In The Game staffers examined the NHL Central Scouting preliminary rankings from November, 2009 and looked at the lineup for the 2010 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

All but one of the players in this set are already named to the roster for the 2010 Home Hardware CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and hockey fans will get a chance to see some of the players in action for the first time. Once again, Team Cherry will face Team Orr and the participants in the contest will have a chance to make a big impression with the multitude of pro scouts in attendance. The only player in this insert set that is not participating in the game is Russian prospect Vladimir Tarasenko, who recently played for his country at the 2010 World Junior Championship.

The 2009-10 edition of Heroes and Prospects hits store shelves on January 27, 2010 and complete program details will be posted at that time. For a complete checklist, visit In The Game online at
