Description This is a brand new product from In The Game, and for many, it constitutes their answer to Upper Deck’s The Cup. However, in my opinion, they have gone one better. This product does not include any base cards, in other words, all cards are inserts with either autograph or memorabilia or sometimes both!
Each box of Superlative contains one pack only and each pack includes seven cards. Each box contains one card from each type of inserts: Autograph, Game Used Jersey, Autographed Game Used Jersey, Superlative Prospect Autographed Game Used Jersey, Game Used Patches, Special Inserts and Famous Fabrics.

We all know that the hockey card market is largely dominated by the giant that is Upper Deck. However in the last few years, In The Game has been making ground rapidly and is gaining more and more popularity. Their Heroes and Prospect, Oh Canada and Between the Pipes products have received great reviews. Always trying to innovate, ITG has released on April 30, 2008 a new set called Superlative. What is so special about it you say? Well for starters it is quite the high end product as illustrated by the price (check below), but also, the set only More >
Yes, it’s playoff time again! The excitement of the chase for Lord Stanley’s Cup is on once more. With only eight teams left chasing the precious trophy, each and every one of those teams’ supporters is starting to think: “…maybe it could happened…why not someone has got to win it!?!” The late nights, the heated discussions about the legality of a hit, the wonder that was a particular save or Sean Avery’s antics, those are all worthy topics that make spring time so special to me. For the playoffs to be a success though, one thing is essential: the teams More >
Remember the days where you actually had to go out to buy the things you wanted? Clothes, music, video games, everything was right there for the taking at your local mall; but in our ever evolving society, the traditional shopping trip soon became outdated, and the situation is the same when it comes to getting cards and supplies for us collectors.
We do indeed live in a technological heyday, and many of us turn to the Internet for their regular box or card purchases. However, the Internet is not without its risk as previously discussed in other articles, and some people More >
Collectors today are lucky. With the Internet, the world is their oyster, and there are plenty of sites which can be of great use to them. Be it for trading purposes, like sportscardforum.com or for buying purposes; Beckett marketplace comes to mind or eBay is also rather popular. That being said, while the Internet gives us more options to fuel our card collecting addiction, it also exposes us to a few pitfalls. A good article about buying boxes online safely was written by a fellow Sports Card Forum writer in January and you can read it at the following link More >
2007-2008 Mini-Jersey Hobby Box
Description The 2007-2008 edition of the Mini-Jersey brand features base cards with a picture of the player featured in action against a light blue backdrop and three coloured circles. The name and number of the players are also evident in the lower right corner and the logos of both Upper Deck (top left corner) and Mini-Jersey (bottom left corner) complete the base card design. Overall, it is a simple design, and in some ways, it makes it evident that you are not in the presence of one of Upper Deck’s higher end products.
The box contains 18 packs and More >
