But the problem is that if ITG in last ineed retrieves back its rightful NHL-license so I'm wondering what if
many of those players who gets zero hobby-love from other compaines than just ITG, so my question is that
if ITG will still making vintage cards or cards with retired players then?
Just check UD who have a absolute shady selections of retired players (C or D-tier players who gets a +A-player treat) who gets cards year after years meanwhile whee there're a lot (no kiddin'!) much better retired players who gets ZERO cards from UD or Panini (but Panini has at lately started to widen their selections of retired platers) while ITG still makes cards with those players....
It's just absolutely impossible to imagine my PC without cards from ITG....same with many others!
I do love ITG's NHL-licensed goodies from the first half of 2000's but...I think that ITG has done a fab job even without their NHL-license, the only bad thing I can coming up is that they on ITG do overusing some pics of some specific players....they do ineed need to upgrading their portfolio of pics....PC-PLAYERS: Tom Barrasso & Johan Hedberg - Hidden Content

Just to bring everyone up to date. We have again submitted a proposal to the NHLPA for a license.
We now have to wait for their reply.
If the terms and conditions are fair and on a level playing field with the other licensees, I will respond positively.
If the terms and conditions are structured to prejudice our future, I will pass.

I remember when I got back into collecting in 2007, I did not touch ITG since it did not have any license. I remember back in the 90's how these had no value to collectors. It was not long, that I started to buy single cards and then boxes, simply because I realize the product was great and worth the money invested. So license or not it will not make me stop to buy ITG products as long as the products keep up with standards we got used to .

Good luck to you and the team at ITG, Dr. Price. I hope that there are meaningful discussions taking place at the NHLPA to have your products sanctioned and allow you to take your company to an even higher level.

Even though I don't purchase any ITG products, I do hope you get the NHL license. Only because it would be really nice to have another option out there and the extra competition would only improve the products and market over all. Best of luck!"I like chicken wings"
