Default In The Game Acquires Sport Kings LP

A Note from Dr. Price:

On behalf of In The Game, Inc. I would like to announce the acquisition of the assets of Sport Kings LP.

By making this acquisition, I will be able to continue the production of the Sport Kings brand as the consolidation of the brand into the ITG family makes it easier to move forward with future releases. In the past websites, marketing and sales were kept separately causing confusion in the marketplace, this acquisition removes that confusion.

I would like to thank my partners in Sport Kings LP for their support over the past seven years in reviving and building the Sport Kings brand, I could not have done it without them.

Sportkings Series F will be released in time for The National this August in Chicago. There are many new features in Series F along with the traditional hard-signed autographs, authentic memorabilia and captivating artwork that collectors have come to equate to the brand.

In The Game's exclusive trading card artist, Jared Kelley will continue to paint masterpieces for inclusion in Series F.

Memorable Moments
Our latest artistic innovation will be found in Series F. It is called Memorable Moments. Memorable Moments cards will depict 20 significant moments in sports' history. Jared will be painting four different cards for each Memorable Moment and when these cards are put together like a puzzle, magic will happen and a masterpiece will come to life.

Here are the four cards in the World Cup Victory Memorable Moments Set.



The first card in the set.
The second card in the set.
The third card in the set.
The fourth card in the set.
All four cards put together.



Body of Work
Sportkings' artists have also been hard at work creating another new insert set Series F entitle, Body Of Work.

Each card is an on-card sketch along with a piece of authentic memorabilia.

There will be sixty different athletes and each athlete will have 9 different cards; however, each sketch will be different making each of these cards a 1/1 sketch/memo card.

Larry Bird Body of Work
Kobe Bryant Body of Work
Dan Marino Body of Work

Derek Jeter Body of Work
The Diesel adds some muscle to Sportkings Series F.

Shaq at work signing his Sportkings cards

We are extremely pleased to announce that Shaquille O'Neal Autograph and Game-Used Memorabilia Cards will be included in packs of Sportkings Series F. "I have been trying to get Shaq on the SportKings team for a number of years, said In The Game, Inc. President, Dr. Brian H. Price, "he finally agreed and we will be producing some great Shaq cards for Series F."
Other athletes joining the Sport Kings family for Series F include:
Hall of Fame Coach - Bill Parcells

MMA Legend Tito Ortiz

Basketball Hall of Famer - Scottie Pippen

Dodger Pitching Sensation - Fernando Valenzuela

Olympic Gymnastic Gold Medalist Kerri Strugg

Football Great - Frank Gifford

All of these great Sportkings and more will have hard-signed Autograph Cards in Series F. A complete checklist will be available in mid-July.

Box Top Redemption Program
Collectors buying boxes of Series F should not throw out their box tops, each box top will qualify for a Box Top Redemption Program which will be announced closer to the Release Date.

Many more important announcements will follow in the next few months but I thought it would be a good idea to bring Sport Kings' collectors up to date with the many things taking place to date.

Series F might be our best yet.

No other single brand of trading cards can claim the depth of great athletes that have been featured in their product; Ali, Magic, Ripken Jr. Marino, Howe, Namath, Bird, Hogan, Jenner, Chamberlain, Braddock, Rice, Nicklaus, Heiden, Gwynn, Mikan, Perry, Holmes, Namath, Shamrock, Knight, Lemieux, Leonard, Palmer, Brown, Olajuwon, Paige, Oliva, McGwire, Mayweather Jr., Mattingly, Marichal, Pele, Roy, Seaver, Shoemaker, Russell, Ryan, Sawchuk, Andretti, Arcaro, Ashe, Starr, Beamon, Beliveau, Lilly, Blair, Chastain, Carlton, Clemente, Dawson, Sanders, Esposito.

What other brand can make this claim?

So contact your local card store, your dealer or your distributor and reserve you Sportkings Series F.

You'll be glad you did.


Brian Price

Great... 9 Marino 1/1s I'm going to have to enjoy from Matt's collection. LOL.

I hate the whole 1/1 sketch concept. Keeps me from collecting comic cards, at least.

Too many 1/1s for me to enjoy chasing. I'll probably sit this one out. You might be able to add them all to your collection if you want.

If there's a Marino 4-card painted insert, that would look amazing in your collection!

I REALLY hope not. I honestly won't be able to afford them.
Would it be cool? Yes. But it would be a massive undertaking to say the least.
