We have listed the product information below. Please post any BOX Breaks, YOUTUBE Videos, or comments related to this product. Our goal is to compile all of the information for this product on this THREAD so that members can come to one place to view all of the Breaks and Information.

CASE

2011/12 In The Game ITG Enforcers Hockey 28 Box Case

2011/12 In The Game ITG Enforcers Hockey 14 Box Case


BOX

2011/12 In The Game ITG Enforcers Hockey Box

Subsets such as Tale Of The Tape, Tough Franchise, Bloody Battles and Record Holders. The Enforcers Base Cards feature the best of hockey’s black & blue collar workers

Each Master Case will contain 28 boxes packed in 2 x 14 box inner cases




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

Seems like some people don't think Enforcers is a good idea.

See my reply to this article below the article.

Are Tie Domi and Bob Probert on the checklist somewhere (sadly, I know Probert won't have any autos)?

Bob Probert is on the checklist and there will be Bob Probert autographs in the product, both Detroit and Chicago.

Stay tuned for the answer to your Domi question.

Was your reply removed? I don't see it.

Regardless, this is a set hockey fans will want. Any Hanson Brother cards?

Yahoo doesn't count as news lol

I think it's a rather neat idea and highlights the fact that Hockey is a rather violent sport at its core.

The answer to the Domi question is yes.

The reason I delayed in answering was that Tie was signing from 3:00 - 5:00 today, exactly when the question was asked if he will be in the product.

Who did the illustration? That card looks great.

And am I the only person that still doesn't see Brian's post in the comments? I've scrolled through all of them numerous times.

And one more question - is Kris King in the set? In the old hockey video games he was always the one guy I used that would win EVERY fight.

Kris King is in the product but the product has taken over a new life in Canada.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is trying to make this product the whipping boy for all they feel is wrong with hockey.

I won't comment on the article yet, read it for yourself:

It's funny that people are so opposed to blood on the cards. One the comments on the article asks "So blood equals glory?" I feel like this has been established as a fact in hockey. You hear about how players playing through pain, playing with stitches, etc., is the test of a 'real' hockey player. Even when I played hockey, I feel like you were honoured for playing through the bloody battles.

I guess my point is the fact that blood is a part of hockey that has been well established. Pretending that players don't get injured and bloody is kind of ignorant. I'm on the fence about whether fighting should be banned, the evidence linking fighting to degenerative brain conditions is pretty damning, but at the same time, I don't think it is such a terrible thing to acknowledge that fighting has historically been a pretty integral part of the game. Maybe if the cards haven't been printed just remove the blood that people are so opposed to? Obviously you don't want to offend the families of the players in the set, but the rest of the people who are commenting aren't the people that would buy this set in first place.

Finally somebody gets it! Playing through pain isn't a punishment, it's a test of your mental and physical strength. It seems like in this overly cautious world getting a minor injury (twisted ankle, lost teeth ) means you can't play. On the contrary!

As for the fighting in hockey, it shouldn't even have to be a question: it has to stay. You can take all the good hits out of hockey (not headshots, those need to go. I'm talking hard body checks) and it will still work. But take fighting out of the game, you're taking away hockey's passion. Don Cherry (yeah, I quote him ) has said many times before he knew no fighters that died when he was playing. And he played in the 50's and 60's! It was a bad summer for hockey. If fighting did have such a huge impact on the players you'd think it would have come out years ago. But it didn't.

Of course, this is just one old-school hockey fans opinion.

I don't think there is a necessary connection between fighting and hockey's passion. Hockey would still be a great sport without fighting. I think university level and international hockey is proof that hockey can be equally exciting without fighting. I also don't think Don Cherry's anecdotal evidence is strong proof of anything. Let's be honest, that guy is a little off.

I just think it's ridiculous to claim, as many of the commenters on the CBC article do, that blood and fighting has not been part of the sport historically. I also think it's a leap to assume that ITG is trying to capitalize on the deaths of Probert, Belak, Boogaard and Rypien this summer. To me it seems pretty clear that without an NHL license, ITG has to appeal to niche markets. That's why they released the 1972 set, the 1980s set, and annual Between the Pipes sets. No one accused ITG of ushering in the end of morality with those sets, but with the Enforcers set, people that don't know what ITG is about think that they are just a company trying to cash in on some controversy. There are fans of hockey enforcers, and I don't think it is unreasonable to release a set that appeals to them.

For the record, when this set was conceived and production began, Boogaard, Belak and Rypien were all alive.

In fact, Belak signed for us knowing he was going into an Enforcers set, he thought it was a "hoot".

There is NO way that we are producing this product to take advantage of these tragic events, it is ridiculous to even think so.

Those who want to remove fighting from hockey should find a better whipping boy than our hockey cards.

The powers that be could remove fighting from hockey if they wanted to by making rule changes, but do they really want to?

Here is what the other Canadian network CTV is saying:

At least trading cards is getting into the news, good for our hobby even though its controversy.

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.

Each pack of Enforcers will contain two authentic game-used memorabilia cards. There are several different insert sets; Instigators, Dual Combatants, Quad Tough Franchise, Fight Straps, 1/1 Fight Strap Dome Fastener cards, 1/1 Enforcer Nameplates. The checklist includes Stu Grimson, Wendel Clark, Kelly Chase, Enrico Ciccone, Lyle Odelein, Gino Odjik, Jeff Odgers, Terry O’Reilly, Bob Nystrom, Clark Gilles and many, many more.

Each pack of Enforcers will contain five Base Cards. There will be four different subsets; Tale of the Tape, Record Holders, Bloody Battles and Tough Franchises in the 90 card Non-Memorabilia Insert checklist.

Enforcers has been receiving quite a bit of coverage over the last couple of days including a couple of TV and radio stories. We certainly appreciate all the support we have received from the collector community for this product. Enforcers is a tribute to the men who selflessly took on the role and we look forward to its release.

Here are a couple of links to some of the reports:

Any word on release date? Can't wait for it to hit. Will their be any redemptions.

Awesome seeing Dave Brown is included in auto checklist. Any chance you can show a picture of his card.
Would love to see a series two with other tough guys who still haven't gotten certified auto cards in anything yet like.
Jay Caufield, Richard Zemlak, Glen Cave Man Cochrane, Gary Rissling, Dan Frawley, Wayne Van Dorp, Howatt, Torrie Robertson ect. Still very surprising Behn Wilson hasn't had a cert auto anywhere. Many consider him top 3 all time, with Brown and Probert.

Are the Probert autos then going to be cut autos?
