Default 07-08 Superlative Question...

Thinking about picking up a few boxes of this when it's released. But, I was browsing over the partial-checklist posted in BO's Pre-Sell and didn't see any mention of some of the top players/rookies (Kane, Price, Toews, Crosby, etc). Is this product limited to a certain number of players?

Thanks guys!

I may be wrong here, but I don't think Crosby has a contract with ITG, not too sure about the others you listed. It looks like a lot of retired legends as well as a bunch of current players, I too would really like to see who exactly is in this product.

ITG is not licensed by the NHL. There will be little to no NHL Team Memorabilia. There will be more Junior, WHA, World Team Jerseys and pieces in this product.

Many of the retired and senior veterans may have NHL material in their cards. Also, some of the young players may have NHL material cards. Most of the good veterans, due to NHLPA contracts will not have NHL material cards for ITG.

Not true. Whether or not they have an NHLPA contract is completely irrelevant. the NHLPA is the player's association, and they have no control over team logos or branding. Think back to the first BAP set released by Upper Deck. No NHL license, but it had an NHLPA license, so the players were pictured wearing generic NHLPA jerseys.

The lack of an NHL license won't keep ITG from being able to include memorabilia from NHL jerseys. They just can't use NHL logos or branding on the player images or on the card itself (so no Maple Leafs logo on the back of a Mats Sundin card).

As you can see from the sell sheet, they are using quite a bit of NHL memorabilia.

Price is in the set...I believe. As far as the others I don't know.

My bad Rabbit. Apparently, I was giving misinformation a few years ago when I asked that question when Ultimate Memorabilia first came out.
