Default In the Game Superlative Hockey

I have been getting emails from In The Game regarding their upcoming Superlative Hockey release.

The latest one touts that all of the memorabilia pieces are game used, no old timer games, photo shoots, store bought patches, etc.

Describing their products as "off the back, not off the rack."

I like it, and will have to buy some just for that slogan!!

Price may be more than sticker shock. They sure are hyping the hell out of this for a long time without letting us in on the price point.

I know I've been getting an email a week on it. Stuff looks great and most of their stuff is good, but since Chris still doesnt have any presell info on it its hard to gage price.

It was mentioned in a past Beckett that Superlative will be more than the ITG Ultimate Hockey. I think it could be $300-$400 a pack.

Ouch...that would puts a different spin on it. Is this supposed to in lieu of Ultimate, or just a preseason warm up?

Have just seen this listed at $425 per 'box', and $4900 per 12 box case.

Does that sound like what people were expecting?

So if we were to do a group break there would be 84 total hits at roughtly $59 + fees, etc....per slot

Biggest problem is that ITG isn't licenced by the NHL so your not going to the players necessarily shown in their jerseys (or at least with their logo showings). Think it could be a really really great product....just to pricey for me at this point.

Sent the product info to the wife, and she's on board. Wow. I haven't been excited about an upcoming hockey product in a long time.

n the past, several manufacturers have taken a shot at gimmicky packaging, hoping that lunchboxes or soup cans were the best way to attract the attention of fickle collectors. Perhaps if what was inside had been as clever and creative, the packaging would have served its purpose.

But in the case of Superlative Hockey, it looks as though you can judge a book by its cover.

Becket Hockey has learned that the highly anticipated product, due for release April 30, will not be issued in a standard box or pack format. Instead, each "pack" of Superlative will come in leather-bound hand-numbered limited edition book.

Each book contains seven cards: one autograph card; one game-used jersey card; one Superlative Prospect autographed game-used jersey card; one patch card; one auto/jersey card; one Famous Fabrics card; and one special insert card.



All autographs are hard-signed and all memorabilia is game-used in Superlative. The print run is limited to just 3,000 hand-numbered books.

When I went to my local shop yesterday. I brought up Superlative to him and told me that ITG Superlative was ITG Ultimate Memorabilia.

2006/07 In The Game Ultimate Memorabilia 7th Hockey 10 Box Case [HK06IGULTMEM7CSH] : Blowout Cards - Sportscards and Trading Cards Wholesale Online Store

ITG chaged it from Ultimate memorbailia to Superlative because of UD having the rights to "Ultimate Collection" and they complained about it. I didn't know if you guys and girls new about that or not.
