Thread: ITG overdoing it
11-18-2012, 12:04 PM #51
All card stores have the option to purchase directly from us, there is a link on the homepage of our website to become a direct dealer.
With respect to the shows in Western Canada, several years ago we signed a one year exclusive with the show promoter and we did shows in Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.
When the term of the agreement was over, Panini and Upper Deck took over sponsorship of the shows and instead of attending as we did, they sent "goodie bags".
Doing a redemption program and traveling out west is very expensive for a small company but we certainly would be willing to start doing shows out west with the promoter and collector support.
We do go to the Summit Show in Edmonton every year, let's not forget about that. It's a great show and very well run.
Again, I invite any store owners who are having difficulty getting our products to PM me and will work with them personally.

87sluggo, you make a very good point.
I am looking into the distribution issue personally, but your comments are right to the point.
Times are tough for LCS and they can't keep a lot of stock of everything. Once our products SELL OUT they have two choices. Either don't reorder it from those who still have it or pay an increased price which they have to pass on.
If that is the situation, there is not much I can do however, if it is not. I want to fix the problem. There is NO WAY in the way that I want our collectors and dealers in Western Canada to think of a moment that ITG is ignoring them.
Please feel free to PM me if you would like to discuss this issue in private.

No problems getting ITG items here in Phoenix, Arizona (hardly much of a hockey town, even with the 'Yotes!). It's even easier to get if I ask for it in advance! ;-)LF these ITG Decades 1980's Autos: Tony Esposito SP, Mario Lemieux SP, Mark Messier EDM SP, Mark Messier CAN SP, Patrick Roy SP, Vladislav Tretiak SP. Also may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs; need Lindbergh Decades Trophy Winner Black. PC includes Sakic, Vaive, Salming, Lafleur, Shutt and anyone named Stastny except Yan. Also buying Tokarski rookie year cards if priced right.

ITG has by far the best products....I get my products and cards easily in NJ...their customer service is the best, and the cards I own are historic :)
